Round 1 – In this round, candidates registered for the counselling process are allotted seats based on their GMR/PMR and their filled registration form. The candidates who are not allotted seats in the round 1 have to wait for the allotment of seats in round 2.
Candidates, who are allotted the seats in the first round of WBJEE counselling, have to visit the reporting centre for document verification and other formalities. If they opt for up-gradation, they are shifted to round 2 allotments.
Round 2 – Candidates, who couldn’t secure a seat in the first round, attend the second round of WBJEE counselling. Also, if a seat allotted to a candidate is cancelled due to some reason, he/she can attend the second round. Additionally, those candidates who opted for up-gradation also participate in the second round of counselling.
Round 3 – All those candidates who registered for the counseling process but could not participate in any of the two rounds, can attend the third round. Also, if a seat allotted to a candidate is cancelled due to some reason, he/she can attend the third round. In addition, if candidates opt for an up-gradation even in the second round, they can attend the third round of WBJEE counselling.
If the seats remain vacant even after all the three rounds of WBJEE counselling, a mop-up round is conducted to fill the seats. Candidates, who couldn’t succeed to get a seat allotted even in the three rounds of WBJEE counselling, are eligible to participate in the mop-up round of WBJEE.
