Same Difficulty Level
In terms of difficulty level, this year's paper was similar to the last two years. The paper was moderately easy. A student should not have had much trouble completing the paper as well. They found similarities between the weightage of marks in this paper, and the 12th standard syllabus. The JEE Main cut off should fall between 95 and 105.
Physics was the toughest paper amongst the three. The questions were a mix of theory based and calculative. This section was not lengthy.
There were 17 questions asked from Class XII syllabus and 13 questions from Class XI syllabus. This section had four difficult questions, 20 moderate questions and 6 easy questions. Initial assessment suspects none of the options of Q6 Set B were correct. This was the question based on Pulley where minimum mass was required.
Chemistry: Was the moderately easy amongst the three. The questions were a mix of theory and calculations, which ensured that students saved time for the other two sections. This section was lengthy in comparison to the other sections. There were 14 questions asked from Class XII syllabus and 16 questions from Class XI syllabus.
This section had 3 difficult questions, 17 moderate questions, and 10 easy questions. Initial assessment suspects students may find two options of Q 63 Set B could be correct, however we think the answer should be option 1. This was a question from Alcohol phenol and ether, on a reaction of Phenol.
Mathematics: Was the easiest paper amongst the three. Most questions were calculative. There were 10 questions asked from Class XII syllabus and 20 questions from the Class XI syllabus. This section had three difficult questions, 14 moderate questions and 13 easy questions.
