JEE Advanced Paper Analysis 2020: Final Takeaway

The JEE Advanced Paper Analysis gives us a brief idea of how the upcoming exam can be framed by the examination authority. Since JEE Advanced is a challenging exam to test the reasoning ability and other skills of the students, the pattern and scheme is not defined until the last moment. It is revealed only during the examination. This forces students to improvise as per the situation of the exam and take quick decisions to manage the best possible score. To note, 240 marks in JEE Advanced is considered a very high score. But this paper analysis helps students in understanding the various situations. Furthermore, the students must work with previous year question papers to exercise their potential to the best possible level which will finally qualify them to the Common Rank Lists.

JEE Advanced Result 2020: Score Calculation

The final score will be calculated for JEE Advanced Result 2020 taking the scores of both the papers.

  • This means each section score will be calculated by totalling scores in both Paper 1 and Paper 2.
  • For example, if a candidate scores 12 marks in Paper 1 in Physics and 8 Marks in Paper 2 in Physics, the total for Physics section will be 20. Similarly, marks for Chemistry and Mathematics will be calculated.
  • Likewise, JEE Advanced Cut Off is based on the aggregate on each section from JEE Advanced Result 2020 and also a certain percentage of each section.
Marks obtained in Physics =

Marks obtained in Paper 1 (Physics)

+

Marks obtained in Paper 2 (Physics)

Aggregate Marks/Scores obtained in JEE Advanced =

Aggregate marks in (Physics + Mathematics + Chemistry)

JEE Advanced Result 2020: Rank List

  • Candidates who will appear for both the papers (Paper 1 & Paper 2) will be considered for a Rank List.
  • In other words, the Rank list is prepared on the basis of aggregate marks scored in all the three subjects of JEE Advanced.

  • A candidate must clear the qualifying JEE Advanced Cut off to be able to get included in the merit list.

  1. The common rank will be calculated according to the aggregate marks obtained by the candidates in the result.
  2. Now, there can be a clash between two candidates in aggregate marks obtained in JEE Advanced 2020.
  3. Therefore, in such a case, tie-breaker rules are to be followed.
    1. First, candidates with higher positive scores will be given a higher rank.
    2. Secondly, candidates scoring higher marks in Mathematics will be given a higher rank.
    3. After that, candidates obtaining greater marks in Physics will be given a higher rank.
    4. Furthermore, if still, the situation remains a tie, then both the candidates will be assigned the same rank.

JEE Advanced Final Answer Key

  • Only those candidates’ answers will be recorded who have appeared for both the Papers of JEE Advanced.
  • That is to say, they can view, download and print these recorded answers from the candidate portal available on the official website, i.e, http://www.jeeadv.ac.in/.
  • Further, the provisional answer keys will be available at the online portal. But, these provisional answer keys are subjected to change.

  • Subsequently, the final answer and minimum for inclusion in the rank will be published at the online portal with the announcement of results.

JEE Advanced Cut Off Percentages

JEE Advanced Syllabus 2020, Important Topics, Best Books to Prepare

Last updated on September 4th, 2020 at 02:35 pm

IIT Delhi released the latest announcement on its official website on 20 July 2020 about no reductions that will be made in JEE Advanced 2020 syllabus.

Advantage of JEE Advanced Practice Papers 2020

While most of you would have completed the syllabus, the JEE Advanced Practice Papers will give you an opportunity to understand the preparation level. Solving practice papers will help you in the following ways:

Better at time management:

  1. By practising JEE Advanced sample papers, candidates can learn time management. Candidates will get to know how much time they are spending on each question.
  2. By examining the result of practice paper candidates will know their weak and strong points.
  3. It is more important to understand that each and every question requires critical thinking, which in turn takes a lot more time.
  4. You need to be prepared to assess the amount of time that needs to be given to each specific question as some might require 10 minutes and some questions can be answered by just looking at the options.

Stress Management after JEE Mains:

  1. The dream of getting into the IITs is just around the corner and there might be scenarios where you would put yourself into the dilemma of whether you are good enough which can attract stress.
  2. Thus, attempting the practice papers can help in dealing with the stress.
  3. This is because you would have gone through multiple practice sets and that you would have already experienced the same scenario, which would ultimately help in managing the stress and pressure.

Preparation Level:

  1. While you might be thinking that you have studied all the important topics for the JEE Advanced, this is not enough to assess whether the preparation is full proof for a good rank.
  2. Taking up the JEE Advanced sample papers would help in understanding the current level of preparation and the improvement scope.
  3. This not only helps your case of getting a better rank but to also build overall confidence because mindset plays a huge role in this sort of examination.

Targeting a higher mountain each time:

  1. Once you start taking up two or more mock tests every day, you can set up various targets.
  2. Also, there could be an increased score in the current test compared to the previous one.
  3. Eventually, this can create a mindset in which you would be better prepared for a difficult set as well.

Higher Confidence:

  1. Practising does lead to a higher level of confidence in the capabilities as an examinee. So, if you have been scoring very well in each and every mock you have been taking, this leads to familiarity with the actual examination environment.
  2. Secondly, this also helps in calming the mind and improving the overall performance.
  3. The experts, as well as the successful candidates all, suggest that more the number of mocks you will write, more you will gain the right attitude and would do well at the examination.
  4. Also, it is important to make sure that you keep using the timer, as doing the set number of questions in the allotted amount of time is the only key to success.

It is better to keep your focus on the studies and leave the rest for the exam day.

Ques. What types of questions are there which can be very tricky to answer in JEE Advanced?

Last updated on April 7th, 2020 at 05:18 am

Ans. Each section presents an opportunity to set up tricky questions, so for example questions that include the decimal answers, up to two decimals can become tricky sometimes as there are more chances of creating a small error here. Similarly matrix match questions and linked comprehension type questions can be quite challenging for the students attempting the JEE Advanced examination. However, the more you practice such questions, the more you challenge the examiner!
