EduNews: Bengal Joint Entrance Examination Board announced revised date for WBJEE-2019

Updated: 23-12-2018
West Bengal Joint Entrance Exam (WBJEE 2019) for admission to engineering and pharmacy colleges will be held on May 26, 2019.

"Paper-I (math) will be held in the first half, from 11am to 1pm. Paper-II (physics & chemistry) will be held in the second half, from 2pm to 4pm," board chairman Malayendu Saha said. The results of WBJEE - 2019 are likely to be published on July 2.
WBJEE 2019 dates have been changed twice.

Saha had said the board was likely to hold the test on April 21, 2019, while releasing the results of this year's exam in May.
On December 12, the exam date was fixed on May 19, assuming the Lok Sabha polls and the results would be declared by then.
On Monday, the board said the dates would be revised because of the JEE (Advanced) on May 19.
This year, the exam was held on April 22 and the results were announced on May 23.
The board has announced that applications can be filed and fees paid online from December 26.
"The classes start on August 1. We will take steps to ensure the online counselling is held in a way that the session starts on time," board chairman Saha said.
The board holds several rounds of online counselling and students are admitted after each round.
This year, the online counselling began in the first week of June.
The board this year had held mock counselling across 33 centres to explain the concept of online counselling.
Now after this unusual delay in taking exam, some doubt is quite apparent if the WBJEE board will hold such mock counselling next year for WBJEE 2020.

Schedule for WBJEE - 2019

Date of Exam: 26th May 2019 (Sunday)
On-Line Registration: 26th Dec 2018 to 22nd Jan2019 (5 p.m.)

The West Bengal Joint Entrance Exam board had initially announced to hold the entrance test (WBJEE 2019) for admission to engineering colleges and pharmacy institutes on 21st April 2019 next year. But an announcement uploaded on the board's website on December 12 said that the test would be held on 19th May 2019 instead.
The latest notice on the website declares that "the date of WBJEE-2019 examination will be reconsidered and the new date will be announced shortly". The JEE Advanced 2019 examination is scheduled for 19th May 2019.
"The new dates will be announced soon," JEE board chairman Malayendu Saha said on Monday.
Saha had, while announcing the results of the WBJEE 2018 in May, said WBJEE 2019 exam was likely be held on April 21 in 2019.
"We have tentatively fixed April 21, 2019, which is a Sunday," Saha had said.
Now the exam has been deferred to May 19, assuming that the general election results would be out by then as the five-year term of the Lok Sabha ends on May 19, an official said.
This year, the exam was held on April 22 and the results were announced on May 23.
Online application and payment of fees for WBJEE 2019 will begin on December 26. "The forms can be submitted online till 5pm on January 22, 2019. Corrections can be made online and a revised confirmation page downloaded from January 23 to January 25," JEE board chairman Saha said.
The downloadable admit cards were to be published on May 7, 2019.

Periodic Classification of Elements and Periodicity in Properties
Hint & Solutions of Test Series Questions Set 4 (Q. No. 31 - 40)

Answer 31: (b) (Hint: IAs oxidation state of central metal ion increases, the electron to proton ratio decreases and therefore, size of ion decreases. In KMnO4, Mn is in + 7 O.S. So, due to maximum +ve charge radius will be lowest)
Answer 32: (b) Answer 33: (b) Answer 34: (b) Answer 35: (c) Answer 36: (b)
Answer 37: (c)
[Hint: a. Across the period, size decreases as electrons are added in the same shell and nuclear charge increases by one unit for addition of each successive element. In contrary, the ionization energy increases as size of atom decreases and nuclear charge increases. 
b. rmetallic > rcovalent (covalent bond formation involves the overlapping of orbitals). 
c. 3Li- - 1s2 2s2 completely filled stable configuration, so more stable. 4Be- - 1s2 2s2 2p1. 5B- - 1s2 2s2 2p2. 6C- - 1s2 2s2 2p3 half-filled stable configuration, so more stable.
d. Due to lanthanide contraction]
Answer 38: (a)  Answer 39: (b)  Answer 40: (b)

What are JEE Main and JEE Advanced
NTA JEE Main 2019 - representative image
JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is a national level engineering entrance exam for getting admissions into engineering colleges across India. Till 2011, All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) used to be conducted by CBSE every year. In the year 2012, CBSE announced the replacement of IIT JEE and AIEEE with Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). The AIEEE was replaced by JEE Main to facilitate admissions in 31 NITs, 20 IIITs and 18 other CFTIs (Centrally Funded Technical Institutes) while IIT JEE was replaced by JEE Advanced to facilitate admissions in the 23 IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and ISM Dhanbad. From 2019 instead of CBSE, JEE Main will be conducted twice a year in the month of January and April respectively by National Testing Agency (NTA). If a candidate achieves a certain cut-off score which is decided every year, in JEE Main then he or she qualifies for JEE Advanced. Qualification in JEE Main is not the only criteria for selection as the candidate should have secured at least 75 per cent marks in the 12th class examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST candidates the qualifying marks would be 65 per cent in the 12th class examination.
National Test Agency (NTA) has released the notification for Joint Entrance Examination, JEE Main 2019. Students interested in applying for admissions to undergraduate B.Tech, BE and B.Arch courses are required to fill the JEE Main 2019 online application.
Eligibility for NTA JEE Main 2019
For BE/B.Tech: The student must have passed 10+2 examination with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with Chemistry/Biotechnology/Biology/ Technical Vocational subject.
For B.Arch/B.Planning: The student must have passed 10+2 with Mathematics as one of the subjects.
Age Criteria: General category candidates – born on or after 1st of October 1994. SC, ST, and PwD category candidates – born on or after 1st of October 1989.
