Joint Entrance Examination Mains is organized by the conducting authority to provide admissions to the students in the undergraduate engineering courses from top recognized institutions. JEE Main is the gateway for those students who are seeking to get admission in IITs, NITs, GFTIs. It is conducted by NTA to provide admission in B.E./B.Tech and B.Arch./B.Plan programs which are offered by the IIITs (Indian Institute of Information Technology), IITs (Indian Institute of Technology), NITs (National Institute of Technology), and CFTs (Centrally Funded Institutions).
In this article, candidates will get complete information about the JEE Main Paper Analysis along with difficulty level and cut-off analysis for JEE Main 2022 along with the previous year’s analysis.
JEE Main Paper Analysis 2022
JEE Main is a national-level entrance exam organized by NTA every year. After qualifying for this exam, candidates can get admission in B.Tech/ B.E/ B.Arch/ B.Plan courses in prestigious engineering institutions like IITs, NITs, CFTIs, etc. As per the official notifications, JEE Main 2022 will be conducted twice:
- April, 2022: 16th April to 21st April 2022
- May, 2022: 24th May to 29th May 2022
When the authorities will conduct the exams successfully, candidates can check the analysis of different sessions of the examinations.
JEE Main Paper Analysis 2021
Maths was the toughest section in terms of difficulty while Chemistry can be considered as the easiest amongst the three subjects. However, only those students will be able to score good marks in JEE Main Exam who covered Physics and Chemistry quickly and the time saved here could have been used for Mathematics. There were 30 questions on each subject. The physics section seemed to be similar to the last 5 years.
Each section of the paper was 120 marks, which means a total of 360 marks.
NTA released the result statistics, where a total of 939008 candidates have appeared for the JEE Main 2021 exam in all four sessions. Aspirants had the choice of appearing in any one of the two types of papers or both.
Paper – I is for B.E/B.Tech courses
Paper-II is for B.Arch/B.Planning
Detailed JEE Main Paper Analysis 2021
- Question Paper – I for BE/B. Tech courses in 2021 were similar to the pattern in the past years
- Paper had objective MCQs with one out of four options correct, with equal weightage to Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics
- There were thirty questions each in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. As per the marking scheme, for each correct answer, four marks are given, and for each incorrect response, one-fourth of the total marks allotted to the question are deducted from the total score
Subject-wise analysis 2021:
Mathematics – Moderately to Difficult.
Majorly, questions were asked from three chapters namely, Calculus, 3D & Vector Algebra. The questions were quite tricky and challenging from Permutation & Combination, Binomial Theorem, Probability & Matrices, Properties of Definite Integral & Differential Equation. Several lengthy questions were asked from Circle & Ellipse too. The questions were time taking to solve.
Physics – Easy to Moderate.
All the chapters were covered in the question paper. Some challenging questions were asked from EM Waves, Kinematics, Heat & Thermodynamics, Electromagnetic Induction, Semiconductors, Modern Physics & Optics. There were various Numerical Based questions that can be termed easy but were time taking.
Chemistry – Easy.
Organic Chemistry & Inorganic Chemistry covered the maximum weightage. Majorly, questions were asked from the chapters of, Oxygen Containing Compounds in Organic Chemistry and General Organic Chemistry.
Physical Chemistry had tons of Numerical Based Type. In Inorganic Chemistry, the paper was filled with s-block & p- block elements, Environmental Chemistry, Ores & Metallurgy. The students who had thoroughly covered NCERTs, had an edge as all the questions were asked directly from there. Overall, Chemistry was easy.
In Physics, was relatively simpler than last year. There were 17 questions from the class XII syllabus and 13 from the class XI syllabus. Some important topics like Mechanical Waves and Sound and Uniform Circular Motion were completely missing. Most of the questions involved easy calculations.
