WBCS 2019 Question Paper

Once the preliminary examination will be over the question paper will be available here.

How To Calculate Score Using WBCS Answer Key 2019?

While the main purpose for the release of the Answer Key is for candidates to know the correct answers for the questions asked in the examination, one of its more popular uses is that candidates may use the WBCS 2019 Answer Key to calculate their tentative score. The unofficial Answer Key pdf comes along with the Question Paper, and the correct answer choices, so candidates can match their choices with the right answer choices to know the questions they answered correctly, against those they did not.

Marking Scheme

In the paper, there will be 200 questions of 200 marks,

  • On marking each correct answer will give 01 marks.
  • For marking each incorrect answer 1/3 marks will be deducted.
  • The same deduction will be made if the candidate marks two alternatives in a single question.

Follow these simple steps to calculate your WBCS 2019 exam score:

Step 1: Check the Answer Key and match the answers marked by yourself. As there will be four sets, hence the candidates have to be careful while matching answer.

Step 2: Now count the number of correct answers marked by yourself and say it ‘X’, and count the number of incorrect answers and multiply the number with 1/3 and say it ‘Y’. Now deduct the Y from X.

The above steps can be concluded in the following formula.

[Total Estimated score = 1 X number of correct answer – 1/3 X number of incorrect answer] 

Candidates may note that the West Bengal Public Service Commission usually does not release official answer keys. The answer keys that are made available online are those by various coaching institutes or individual education experts.
