KOLKATA, 9 JUNE: Though the state Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) was supposed to be a 250-marks examination from this year, it was not so as some "doubtful" questions have been withdrawn during the evaluation process after consultation with the experts.
The results of the examination were declared yesterday.
After the examination was held on 21 April, some complaints were raised regarding some questions which were not identical in Bengali and English version. In an attempt to ensure transparency, West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination Board published the answer keys and sought feedback from students, teachers and experts. Based on that feedback, the board finally withdrew some questions from all sets of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
"We did not give any marks to those questions. Neither did we deduct any mark for wrong answers," said an official of the board.
This year, the question paper of Mathematics was of 100 marks while question papers of Chemistry and Physics were of 75 marks.
