JEE Advanced 2016 Exam Analysis

JEE Advanced 2016 – Paper 1 – Analysis

CBSE conducted JEE Advanced Exam on 22 May 2016 for those who qualified JEE Main Examination. Nearly two lakhs students appeared for JEE Advanced 2016. The exam was held in two shifts, featuring Paper – 1 and Paper – 2 respectively.

The question paper for JEE Advanced 2016 featured 186 questions for which the students were given 3 hours. The detailed analysis of the JEE Advanced 2016 – Paper 1 is compiled below.

Section Wise Analysis

Chemistry

The Chemistry section featured almost 50% questions from Moderate difficulty level. Only 16 out of 62 questions of this section could be counted as difficult.

Mathematics

The questions of Mathematics section were more on the easy to moderate level. The section was well balanced having the number of easy questions almost equal to the number of difficult questions.

Physics

In the Physics section, the questions were primarily easy; making the candidates more comfortable. Eight questions were difficult enough to trouble the students. Rest of the section saw questions from easy to moderate level.

Section wise difficulty level

Types of Questions – Paper 1

There are mainly three types of questions asked in JEE Advanced viz Single Answer Correct Type, Multiple Answer Correct Type, Numerical Grid Type. The number of each type of questions asked in each section is tabulated below.

Type of Questions No. of ques per subject Marks per question Negative Marks Marks per subject Total questions
Single Answer Correct Type 5 3 -1 15 15
Multiple Answer Correct Type 8 4 -2 32 24
Numerical Grid Type 5 3 0 15 15

JEE Advanced 2015 Exam Analysis

The first point to be noted is the change in pattern. Last year, parts Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics in the Paper I were divided into three sections of 10 questions, 5 questions, and 5 questions respectively. This year, each part had only two sections of 10 questions each.

Difficulty Level

The number of easy, medium, difficult questions in paper 1 are as given below.

Mathematics Section 1 – One or more than options Easy 3

Section 2 – One integer value correct Easy 1
Medium 7
Difficult 2

There were 20 questions for each subject. On an average, candidate could devote 3 minutes to each question. This time there were no single option correct type questions at all. Half of the questions were of multiple option correct type, and half were single integer answer type.

Multiple option correct type questions – Although the questions of multiple option correct type were not largely difficult, but students tend to be uncomfortable about such questions. If for example, the question has two correct answers, but candidate could identify only one option, then no marks is awarded to that answer. In such a case, candidate loses valuable time and marks.

Single integer correct answer – Again, this genre of questions is not liked by students who prefer to arrive at answers by eliminating options. The answer options are 0-9, so a candidate can hardly guess the answer. The probability of marking answer correctly, purely by guess is almost nil.

Chemistry Analysis

Chemistry Class XI Class XII Total
Easy Medium Difficult Easy Medium Difficult
Physical Chemistry 1 4 0 1 0 1 7
Organic Chemistry 1 0 0 0 2 3 6
Inorganic Chemistry 0 0 2 1 2 2 7
Total 2 4 2 2 4 6 20

The paper can be termed as tricky and more towards the difficult range.

Last year’s paper was comparatively easier. It could be said that IIT JEE Advanced has become tougher than before.

  •  The paper was moderate in difficulty level.
  • There were certain questions that had lengthier calculations.
  • Class XIIth questions were 45% and rest were from class XIth syllabus.

The IIT JEE Advanced Exam Analysis is being updated at the moment. The analysis for Paper 2 will be updated shortly.

IIT JEE Advanced Paper 2 Exam

The paper 2 of JEE Advanced is also tougher as compared to last year. The questions were calculations based, and eliminating options to get to the correct answer was not recommended.

The JEE Advanced exam analysis for paper 2 can be said to be that it was easier than paper 1. This paper had 60 questions, 20 each from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. It was favorable for students as it had single option correct type questions.

Students generally prefer to attempt, and are more comfortable with attempting single option correct type questions, as they have faced such problems during preparation, as well as in mock tests, other engineering entrance exams.

Match the following type questions – Like last year, this year too questions where match the options was given. It was expected that such questions will be asked, and thus it did not hold many surprises for the students.

Paper 2 was a sigh of relief for the students, who were quite flustered by Paper 1 that had all multiple options correct type questions.

OVERALL ANALYSIS

  • Total questions – 120 (60 in paper 1 and 60 in paper 2)
  • Easy questions – 40
  • Moderately difficult questions – 40
  • Difficult questions – 40
