WBJEE Eligibility Criteria - Academic Qualification, Age, Domicile



Continuing the discussion from WBJEE 2017 Application Form Filling Queries [Registration & Submission]:

I was born 9 Jan 2000 and will turn 17 years of age before 31 Dec 2017. Will I be able to give WBJEE 2017? The information brochure states that student must be at-least 17 years of age on 31 Dec 2017. Also its mentioned that students born after 1 Jan 2000 will not be eligible to give the test .

What is the final decision as both facts are contradicting?


Brochure already stated that,

“The lower age limit is 17 (seventeen) years as on 31.12.2017. There is no
upper age limit in appearing in the WBJEE-2017. A candidate born on or after 01.01.2000 is not eligible to appear in the WBJEE-2017.”.

However, for admission to the degree level Marine Engineering Course The lower age limit is 17 (seventeen) years as on 31.12.2017 and the upper age limit is 25 Years as on 31.12.2017.

Can you please let me know which course you want to pursue so that I can elaborate to you all other Entrance Test


Please note that after receiving so many queries WBJEE has released the following statement

A candidate born on or either 01.01.2001 is not eligible to appear in the WBJEE-2017.
