But unfortunately, the West Bengal government does not allow non-domiciles to take admission to government-owned colleges. Hence you will need to have a look for other colleges which accept non-domiciles as their students based on your performance in this entrance exam. To help you I am attracting a link that will predict the branch and the college that you can get based on your performance in WBJEE. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/wbjee-college-predictor
I hope that this predictor takes care of the domicile issue otherwise the results will not be exactly accurate. But you will come to know this when the counseling takes place since you will not be allowed to fill up the choice of a government college by the system when you stay that you are not a domicile of West Bengal. Best wishes to you.
