JEE Main 2019 Paper 1 Analysis

JEE Main 2019 for engineering admissions was successfully conducted from January 09 to January 12, 2019. No significant issues or complaints were reported during the 5 day testing window.

Mathematics remains the most difficult and time consuming section for JEE Main candidates. Physics can be also placed in the moderately difficult section. Chemistry was the easiest section for the candidates. Overall, the exam was of easy to moderate difficulty level. The cut off is expected to be around 80-85 marks based on the difficulty level as per most experts.

According to experts, candidates need to get a minimum of 50 questions correct which makes the  cut off score 200+ out of 360 for top colleges since NTA will calculate percentiles based on each day of exam.

Physics

The questions for Physics were easy to moderate difficulty level. If the section is broken down into topics then 4 questions were from Electrostatics and Magnetism, and 5 questions were from Optics and Modern Physics, 6 questions were from Heat and Thermodynamics.

Mechanics with 8 questions and Current Electricity and EMI with 7 questions were the top grossers. Looking at general consensus among students, the sections was much more theoretical in nature.

Chemistry

Chemistry was the saviour for most students in JEE Main Paper I. Although some candidates claimed that the section was lengthy, on the whole this section didn’t contain any tricky questions.

Based on analysis of morning shift on Jan 09, 12 questions were set from Inorganic Chemistry in the paper while Organic and Physical Chemistry had 9 questions each.

Overall, students with strong foundations in Chemistry wouldn’t have any problem scoring high marks in this section.

Mathematics

Experts and students alike affirmed that Mathematics was the toughest section this year. Most of the questions were set to test applications of Math rather than theoretical concepts.

Some also felt that the paper was tricky and questions were not direct. Algebra had 10 questions while Calculus also had 8 questions. Coordinate Geometry and Trigonometry had 6 questions each.

Since the questions were also lengthy and tricky, the sectional cut off is expected to dip for Mathematics this year.

JEE Main 2019 Paper 2 Analysis

For JEE Main Paper 2, 180,052 candidates registered on the official website.  The paper 2 comprises three sections namely Mathematics, Aptitude and Drawing.
No official dress code was mandatory for appearing in the exam as per the remarks made by NTA DG, Vineet Joshi. All the students underwent normal frisking and metal detector tests as part of security checking.

JEE Main Paper 2 Exam Pattern
Sections No. of Questions Mode Marks
Mathematics 30 CBT +4 – ✔ response ; -1 – ✖ response
Aptitude 50 CBT +4 – ✔ response; -1 – ✖ response
Drawing 3 Pen and Paper Based 1st Question – 30 Marks
2nd & 3rd Question – 20 Marks

Mathematics and Aptitude sections are conducted in CBT (Computer Based Test) while the Drawing test is conducted in offline mode. The exam was of moderate difficulty level and no major changes were reported from previous year patterns. Let’s dig deeper into the analysis for each section.

Mathematics

Students reported attempting questions from previous year question papers. Some also reported that the distribution of questions was not regular as only 40% questions were from class 12 curriculum while remaining were from class 11 curriculum. This year, Mathematics was the most difficult section for students due to its unpredictable nature.

Aptitude

Several questions were asked on identifying top view and front view of three-dimensional objects and shapes. mirror images. Also 10-15 questions were also based on general knowledge topic like full form of ISRO, NASA and places/locations with architectural importance. Most students agreed that this was the easiest section in the exam.

Drawing

Out of a total of 3 questions, the first question had a weightage of 30 marks and the next two questions contained weightage of 20 marks each. The first question also had three options and candidates had to attempt any one of them:

  • First question was to design a curtain for small girl’s room.
  • Second question required to draw your favourite actor’s curtain.
  • Third question was based on drawing sketch for group of people sitting around bonfire.

This section was moderate to difficult level for most candidates depending upon the creativity of each individual.

Students’ reaction (JEE Main 2019)

  1. For some of the test taker, Questions based on Organic Chemistry were the toughest. While the others said, “Mathematics section was tougher as compared to Physics and Chemistry”.
  2. The questions were trickier and even they were not similar to that of last year.
  3. JEE Main 2019 January  paper was tougher than that of 2018.

Experts’ Expectation from JEE Main 2019 April Exam

The level of difficulty of JEE Main 2019 April exam should be similar to the January Exam. But there may be chances of paper being lengthy. And the weightage of questions asked from class 11 and 12 may vary a little.

Physics section can be moderately easy. But nothing can be said about calculations based questions. For Chemistry, as it is considered as the easiest of the 3 subjects, so, theory-based questions will not be time-consuming. Mathematics is the toughest of all the subjects, so it is better to save more time for this section as questions may be lengthy in terms of calculations. Candidates can read the paper analysis of JEE Main 2018 Exam to get more idea about the difficulty level, type of questions and weightage of sections.


JEE Main 2018 Paper Analysis

JEE Main 2018 online exam was conducted on multiple dates. Check the analysis of JEE Main Paper 1 below-

    • The level of difficulty of JEE Main 2018 paper was higher than the paper for 2017.
    • Many of the students found Physics as the most difficult section, they had a tough time to solve few of the questions.
    • Easiest of all the 3 subjects was Chemistry section. Most of the questions were direct. But for some, it was the toughest of all.
    • Mathematics section was moderate in terms of the level of difficulty. The paper was found lengthy because of its calculations.
    • As per the previous years’ analysis, it is found that the number of questions asked from class 11 and 12 varies a little but this time, the distribution of questions from class 11 was comparatively higher than class 12 for Mathematics.
    • Questions based on Integration, Conic Sections, Semi-Conductor, Optics were found easy.
    • In Physics, a large number of questions were asked of Electrodynamics and Mechanics.

    Instructions for JEE Main 2019 aspirants

    • Attempt the sections wisely and do not devote much time to any section more than it requires.
    • Attempt Chemistry first and don’t spend more than 25 minutes.
    • Move to Physics and don’t devote more than 40–50 minutes.
    • Save enough time of Mathematics and attempt it. Your hard work always pays off.
