This year, the JEE main paper has got mixed reactions from the students although a few of the questions were found repeated. In the year 2017, 11,98,989 candidates have registered for appearing in the entrance examination.
Analysing the pen and paper-based offline JEE paper city-based IIT JEE physics expert Kunal Singh said, “ With six repeated questions in physics section, four in chemistry and four in mathematics from the previous year JEE papers, JEE Main examination 2017 can be termed as ‘reasonably moderate’ to “competent “ for serious JEE Aspirants.
“Although many questions were challenging which is quite expected in JEE examination, a few questions were found repetitive, straightforward, conceptually efficient and quite factual” in nature which will definitely lead to the rise in the score of candidates. Conceptual but easy physics followed by straightforward chemistry will shadow a bit calculative mathematics section which will help aspirants to secure a good score,” added Kunal.
Rohit Singh, who appeared for JEE in the Sector 37 centre, said, “I found physics questions as expected but mathematics section a bit lengthy and tough. Chemistry was tougher than last year.”
Arshdeep, who appeared in the Sector 7 centre, said, “The paper was certainly above NCERT level. I missed some questions due to the paucity of time but I am expecting to score 210 marks and hope to get admission in an elite college.”
“Maths section in the JEE examination is more or less always bit lengthy and aspirants must understand that accuracy is the key. The overall difficulty of JEE Main 2017 paper was average. Five questions were of the IIT-JEE Advanced level, 10 questions were NCERT level, and remaining 14-15 were good questions. It was a calculative and balanced paper.” said Rajat Garg, IIT alumni and JEE mathematics expert.
The results, score and the all-India ranks for the JEE Main will be announced by the CBSE on April 27. Around 2.2 lakh candidates, who will clear the cutoff and declared qualified will be eligible to appear for IIT-JEE advanced examination which is scheduled on May 21, 2017.
