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 examination 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 examination and take quick decisions to manage the best possible score. But this paper analysis helps in understanding the various situations and 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 2020 Result: 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 2020 Result: Rank List

Candidates who will appear for both the papers (Paper 1 & Paper 2) will be considered for a Rank List. In other words, Rank list is prepared on the basis of aggregate marks scored in all the three subjects of JEE Advanced. Likewise, the merit list of the other categories such as SC, ST and OBC-NCL will be released separately with specified relaxation in minimum marks.

A candidate must clear the qualifying JEE Advanced Cutoff to be able to get included in the merit list. To clarify, as per JEE Advanced 2020 information brochure, the minimum percentage of marks prescribed for inclusion in the rank list is tabulated below:

Rank List Minimum percentage of marks in each subject Minimum percentage of aggregate marks
Common rank list (CRL) 10.0 35.0
GEN-EWS rank list 9.0 31.5
OBC-NCL rank list 9.0 31.5

JEE Advanced 2020 Result: Tie-Breaker rules

The common rank will be calculated according to the aggregate marks obtained by the candidates in the result. Now, there can be a clash between two candidates in aggregate marks obtained in JEE Advanced 2020. Therefore, in such a case, tie-breaker rules are to be followed.

  • First, candidates with higher positive scores will be given higher rank.
  • Secondly, candidates scoring higher marks in Mathematics will be given higher rank.
  • After than, candidates obtaining greater marks in Physics will be given higher rank.
  • 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, jeeadv.ac.in. Further, the provisional answer keys will be available at the online portal. But, these provisional answer keys are subjected to change.

Candidates can also send their feedback on answer keys through the portal. 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 2020: Cutoff Percentages

JEE Advanced Practice Papers, Previous Year Question papers and mock test

While the JEE Advanced dates have been postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it is a great time to go through as many sets of JEE Advanced practice papers as possible since it will help you in working on your weaker sections. For a long time, this has been considered as the best practice by many experts and successful candidates. By using the JEE Advanced practice papers, you would not only understand the variety of the questions that can be asked but also the exam pattern which will boost your exam preparation to get into the IITs.

This year there is a twist in the exam pattern and changes in it have been in the headlines. The major change in the exam format is related to the long answers. Thus, along with the conventional MCQs, the long answers will also be asked in the exam. However, there will not be any negative marking for these long answers. You can find more information on this on the official website of the National Testing Agency – www.jeemain.nta.nic.in

Meanwhile, the JEE Advanced exam which was to be conducted in the month of May is expected to be delayed by at least a month or two, which present a great opportunity for those who have not yet tried their hands at the JEE Advanced practice papers. In this blog post, we will be taking a look at the exam pattern of JEE Advanced, its Syllabus, reasons to attempt JEE Advanced practice papers as well as various FAQs related to JEE Advanced Practice Papers.

JEE Advanced Exam Pattern

Knowing the exam pattern of the JEE Advanced will make sure that you will benefit while attempting the exam. It helps in improving the preparation level and acquaints you with the types of questions and count of questions that would be there in the exam.

It is even better to practice to look at the JEE Advanced paper pattern as it will help in eliminating any sort of error or perceptions related to the JEE Advanced examination in your mind due to the lack of information regarding the exam pattern including the marking scheme.

Advantage of JEE Advanced Practice Papers

While most of you would have completed the syllabus, the JEE Advanced Practice Papers will give you an opportunity to understand the preparation level. The JEE Advanced examination is considered as the most difficult entrance examination in Engineering, but it is important to remember that if the exam is difficult for you, it would probably be difficult for the other candidates as well. So if you have studied hard and as a serious engineering aspirant, take at least two JEE Advanced practice papers each day, you will surely get a result to be proud of.

Better at time management:

By practising JEE Advanced practice paper candidates can learn time management. Candidates will get to know how much time they are spending on each question. By examining the result of practice paper candidates will know their weak and strong points.

It is more important to understand that each and every question requires critical thinking, which in turn takes a lot more time. 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:

The dream of getting into the IITs is just round 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. Thus attempting the JEE Advanced practice papers can help in dealing with the stress as 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:

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. Taking up the JEE Advanced practice papers would help in understanding the current level of preparation and the improvement scope. This not only helps your case of getting a better rank but to also build an overall confidence, because mindset plays a huge role in this sort of examination.

Targeting a higher mountain each time:

Once you start taking up two or more mock tests everyday, you can set up various targets, which could be an increased score in the current test compared to the previous one. This can create a mindset in which you would be better prepared for a difficult set as well.

Higher Confidence:

Practicing 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 a familiarity to the actual examination environment. This also helps in calming the mind and improving the overall performance.

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. It is also 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.

JEE Advanced Syllabus

The syllabus for both the test includes the following sections:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics

Let us further look in brief all the important topics in each of the section:

Physics Chemistry Mathematics
Vectors Stoichiometry – I & II Quadratic Equations
Gaseous State Atomic Structure Trigonometry
Properties of Matter Environmental Chemistry Conic Section
Liquids Hydrocarbon Circle
Kinematics Introduction to Organic Chemistry Straight Lines
Motion in 2D p-Block Elements Permutation and Combination
Dynamics s-Block Elements Binomial Theorem
Energy and Momentum Hydrogen Complex Numbers
SHM and Waves Chemical & Ionic Equilibrium Sequence and Series
Thermodynamics Thermodynamics
Rotation Thermochemistry
Gravitation States of Matter
Chemical Bonding – I & II
Periodic Properties

So if you practice the JEE Advanced practice papers, it would give a clear introspection about the marking system followed in the exam. The negative marking is a challenge to many students who attempt the examination for the first time without any previous experience of the JEE Advanced practice paper. Attempting multiple sets of the JEE Advanced practice papers will help you in reducing the error and would even tell you about your error rate as well as the guess rate, yes that’s a thing!

Attempting the JEE Advanced practice paper will not only help you with the above-mentioned things but also with better time management skills. It is quite important to be able to optimize the amount of time that is required to handle a specific question as well as the accuracy attached to it.

FAQs related to the JEE Advanced Question Papers

Ques. How and when can I get the question paper along with the response that I have given in the JEE Advanced?

Ans. The question paper will be mailed to you. This document will have the questions and the answer side by side, along with the correct response for that question.


Ques. Is it that IITs who are setting the paper or is the National Testing agency conducting the JEE Advanced examination?

Ans. The examination is set up by multiple teams formed from the various IITs. The teams of experts from each IIT are chosen by IIT, Delhi who then sets the question paper.


Ques. Is the difficulty level of the JEE Advanced much higher than the JEE Mains?

Ans. It is difficult to predict the difficulty level as there is utmost uncertainty. It has been seen that the students are always surprised from the types of questions that are asked in JEE examinations whether it is the Mains examination or the JEE Advanced. 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?

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!
