JEE Advanced Paper 1 Analysis
The first letter of JEE Advanced 2021 was successfully conducted today from 9am to 12pm. After talking to a cross-section of students about patterns, difficulty levels, and marking schemes, we came to the conclusion that there was a slight change in the pattern, with 57 questions, 19 from each of the three subjects. It was a paper numbered 180. Each subject had four sections A, B, C and D. Details are given below:
Pattern:
Chapter |
I |
2 |
III |
IV |
Making scheme |
4 questions of single correct type +3, -1 |
Type 3 paragraphs with two questions each, numeric value answer in second decimal place +2, 0 |
6 questions multiple choice correct type +4, -2 with partial symbols |
3 questions with non-negative integer type answers +4, 0 |
The students further commented that the coverage of the subject was full of physics, more or less complete in chemistry, where there were very few questions from calculus. There was significant mention of probability (4) matrices and determinants (4). Overall, it was a simple paper with M> C> P as the level of difficulty according to the subject.
JEE Advanced Paper 2
JEE Advanced 2021 was conducted with Paper 2 management. It was again a paper with a maximum of 180 marks with significant changes in pattern from paper-1. The pattern of the paper is given in the matrix below.
Pattern:
Chapter |
I |
2 |
III |
IV |
Making scheme and type |
6 multiple choice correct type questions +4, -2 with partial symbols |
3 paragraphs up to 2 decimal places each with two numbered questions, one numeric value answer +2,0 |
2 paragraph 2 The correct type of single choice for each of the questions +3, -1 |
3 questions with answers as a non-negative integer +4.0 |
Physics
The physics part was considered easy to be moderated by a majority of the students. There were 6 questions from mechanics, 6 questions from electrodynamics, 3 questions from modern physics, 2 questions from optics and heat and thermodynamics. About 7 questions were observed as easy, 9 as moderate and the remaining 3 as difficult.
Chemistry
This section was difficult for some students. Subject coverage was complete. There were about 7 questions from Physical Chemistry, 6 from Inorganic Chemistry and the remaining six questions from Organic Chemistry, the students found these sections to be moderate to difficult. About 5 questions could be categorized a simple 12 questions were medium and two questions were difficult.
Math
Parts of mathematics were the two largest of all subjects where there were about 5 questions from algebra, 7 questions from calculus and 5 co-ordinate geometry questions were also asked from vector and trigonometry.
There were very few easy picks among the students in this part of the open that only two questions were easy 13 questions were medium where the order of difficulty for the difficult section question words according to the overall difficulty level is M> C> P.
