**NCERT rules the paper**

Most of the students have said that all the questions were easily answered by what they had studied in NCERT text books. This gives a definite edge to those who had focused on NCERT books. Though after JEE Main, when the top 1.5 lakh students appear in JEE Advanced in May, they will have to go beyond and study from other books also, to ace JEE Main it seems NCERT was indeed enough.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has ensured that the level of questions will remain same in the JEE Main 2014 CBTs also.
