WB Police SI Exam Pattern, Syllabus, Papers & Books
West Bengal Police SI exam 2013 has been advertised recently by West Bengal Police Recruitment Board and this blog article is being written to help you prepare for the written exam with prep/study materials. It at first discusses about the WB Police SI exam pattern, provides you the Syllabus and than points you to the Sample papers and prep books that you can use for this exam.

This blog post follows an earlier article of mine titled: WB Police Recruitment 2013: SI & Lady SI vacancy and if you would like to know whether you are eligible and if you would like to apply for the same, please do visit that blog post.

In the very beginning let me tell you that online prep materials, exclusively for WB Police SI exam is scarce – almost non-existent. Hence, most of the prep materials given in this blog post is sourced for similar police recruitment exams such as SSC CAPF SI exam, Delhi Police SI exam etc. as the pattern of exams are similar (i.e. almost same test sections) as well as the eligibility required is same (i.e. graduation). Also, CGL (Combined Graduate Level) Exam conducted by SSC has same exam pattern as WB Police SI Exam.

Let us start this by knowing Selection Process for WB Police SI.

WB Police SI Selection Process:
Selection process for the Sub-Inspectors in West Bengal Police consists of a 3-stage selection process – Prelims (200 marks), Final (200 marks) & Personality Test (30 marks). In addition, Physical Measurement is checked just before Personality Test to find whether you meet the eligibility as given in section “d) Minimum Physical Standard” in page-1 of the notification.

Marks you score in Prelims would be used for screening purpose only and same shall not be used for preparing the merit list. Final merit list would be based only on the marks you score in WB Police SI exam (Final) and Personality Test.

Pattern/Format of WB Police SI exam:
As given above, you have to appear twice for WB Police SI exam – Prelims & Final. While the Prelims exam is of Objective type (i.e. MCQ), the Final exam is of conventional type.

WB Police SI Prelims exam patternThere are two test sections in WB Police SI exam (Prelims) - General Studies & Arithmetic. You can find the number of marks, questions and duration of the exam in the WB Police SI Prelims exam pattern in the table at right.

WB Police SI Final exam patternOn the other hand, there are four subjects in the three exam papers of WB Police SI Final exam - General Studies, Arithmetic, English and of the of the language: Bengali/ Hindi / Urdu/ Nepali. You can find the pattern of WB Police SI Final exam in the table at left.

As you can see above, maximum weightage has been given to General Studies in both Prelims & Final exam. Also, Arithmetic is common to both the stages of WB Police SI exam. So you need to put special emphasis accordingly.

Also, if you compare the exam pattern of SSC CAPF (BSF, CISF, CRPF & ITBP) & Delhi Police SI exam as given below, you would find that test sections are similar except the paper of "General Intelligence and Reasoning", which is not there for WB Police SI exam.
SSC CAPF SI exam pattern
Hence, as even the eligibility required is same (i.e. graduation), you can use the exam prep material of SSC CAPF & Delhi Police SI exam to prepare for WB Police SI Exam.
