JEE Main scores are used as the basis for admission into institutes with technical sources funded by the centre. Candidates who are successful in their JEE Mains are then eligible to take the JEE Advanced exam.

Over 10.2 lakh students appeared for the JEE-M at 1,781 centres in 109 cities across the country this year. JEE-M is conducted in two parts- Paper I and Paper II.

Paper-I (BE/B Tech) was conducted in both computer- based (online) and paper-pen (offline) mode while Paper II (B Arch/B Planning) will be conducted in pen-paper mode only.

JEE Main 2017 Exam Analysis: Paper was of Moderate Difficulty, say Experts

JEE main 2017 exam analysis: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had conducted the Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT JEE) main exam on Sunday, April 2, 2017. Experts who have analysed the paper found that it had a moderate difficulty level.

The pattern followed this year was similar to the JEE main patter from 2011 to 2016. Over 10 lakh candidates appeared for the exam which was conducted in the offline mode for entrance to BE, BTech, BArch and BPlanning courses. Only the top 2,20,000 candidates who clear the main exam will be shortlisted for the advanced paper who will have to compete for 11,032 seats in the IITs.

“Overall difficulty level for paper is between easy to moderate. For a student who has been focused and serious all through the two years… must have done reasonably well,” said RL Trikha, the Director of FIITJEE. Experts found that while the paper was moderate, there were a few tricky questions.

“In all the three subjects, 5-6 questions were framed quite differently. This year, lesser number of questions were memory based,” said Aakash Chaudhary, director of Aakash Educational Services Pvt Ltd. He added that the Physics and Chemistry portions of the paper were relatively simple while the maths portion had a few difficult questions.

“Questions asked were conceptual and nearer to the JEE advanced paper in terms of tricks and approach. Students confined to NCERT and related text books would find it difficult,” Chaudhary said about the Maths section.

“While questions were based on simple formulae, a lot of them were calculation-based. The paper contained 15 questions from Algebra, six from Calculus, three from Trigonometry, three from Conics and three from Vector Algebra,” said Rajshekhar Ratrey, VP Educational Content of Toppr.com.

Experts noted that there were 25 easy questions, 53 moderate questions and 12 difficult questions. According to them, Mathematics was the toughest section of the three and the expected cut off for advanced would be around 100.

JEE Main 2017: Entrance Exam was ‘Easy to Moderately Difficult’

Around 10 lakh students appeared in the JEE Main 2017 examination held on Sunday across more than 2,000 centres in 109 cities in India and abroad.

The pattern of questions of JEE (Main) exam 2017, for B.E/B.Tech courses (Paper I), was similar to that of the last five years. It had objective type, multiple choice questions (MCQ). There were 30 questions each from physics, chemistry and mathematics. Four marks were allotted for each right answer and one mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There will be no negative marking for questions not attempted.

The Paper was set from CBSE Class 11 and 12 syllabus. Expectedly, many of the questions were conceptual with some needing analytical skills. Twenty-five questions were easy, 53 moderately difficulty and 12 relatively more difficult.

In the D Set, questions 34 and 54 of physics were tough and needed analytical ability beyond NCERT book/deep study. In chemistry there were two or three questions requiring deep conceptual understanding and application. In mathematics Set-D’s question, 28 was controversial and few questions were lengthy. However, serious students must have found paper relatively easy, compared to last year.

In our opinion, well-prepared candidates maintaining their cool during the exam should have been able to attempt most of questions.

Overall difficulty level for the paper was between easy to moderate. A candidate who stayed focused for two years and worked towards improving speed and accuracy, by taking regular quizzes and mock tests, he/she must have done reasonably well. It is always relative performance, which matters in such competitive examinations.

Cut-off for CML (Common Merit List) in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 was 113,115,105,100 respectively. Cut-off this year is going to be high around 115.

Admission through centralised allocation process in NIT’s / IIIT’s / DTU / CFTI’s for over 24,000 seats in undergraduate courses will be done according to merit list based on marks in JEE Main examination. However, a candidate must be in top 20 percentile of respective board or should score minimum 75% marks in his/her board examination.

Additionally, a total of 9 states (Haryana, Uttarakhand, Nagaland, Gujarat, M.R., M.P., Odisha, Punjab and Rajasthan) will also accept JEE-M ranks to fill seats through their own seat allocation process.

Top 2, 20,000 candidates of JEE Main will be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced on May 21, 2017 to fight for one of 11,032 seats in IITs.

Crack 2nd-April JEE Main 2017 Exam in Last Few Days with Expert Tips

April brings forth the season of fervent preparation and sleepless nights for students as they are poised to take the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission to various engineering colleges in the country.

In this current era, it takes more than plain hard work to get the best out of this preparation and keeping abreast with some tips and tricks can only benefit students.

Here are 5 tips to help you crack the JEE:

1. Craft a realistic study plan

Students frequently spend more time in building a mountain out of a molehill. Planning is an art which is fuelled by possibilities. It is imperative to create a plan that can be successfully executed. Building castles out of the air will not take you anywhere. Give more time to topics you find difficult and keep a buffer so that you can complete some pending tasks.

2. Recognise your strength and weakness

Everyone has their definite strengths and acute weaknesses that they require to overcome. It’s pretty certain that if you don’t get clarity on your weaknesses, you end up not being clear about your strengths either. Weaknesses can be transformed into a strength with focus. Playing to your strengths and sailing through the weaknesses is the best exam strategy a person can bank on.

3. Depend on practical know-how

Students have a tradition of considering countless books for every subject even though most of them convey the same thing. Having too many books can lead to confusion during the time of revision and most of your doubts would remain unresolved without a go-to book. Practical knowledge carries you forward to the zenith of your abilities.

4. Examine the questions with care

Examiners try to test students by playing around with question and options. So, it is important to read the question cautiously to comprehend requirements and measure options with great concentration. Watch out for the questions that are designed to have more than one correct answer and you are supposed to choose the option with multiple correct answers.

5. Map your exam strategy

Preparation of the way you attempt various questions is quite vital to crack the JEE. You do not have to approach the question paper in any formulaic way. It is imperative to not waste time over questions which catch you in a fix. Finish all the sections that you are really competent at so that you can dedicate more time for the difficult ones.

With cut-throat competition, it is imperative to get your gears. Enrolling for a coaching class can help a student gain the desired guidance and master tricks to crack competitive exams. Your mind should be prepared to perform well during an exam. This requires consistency over a long period of time and tenacity of mind. Panic will never take you anywhere so give your best and keep faith in yourself.
