JEE Main 2018 Paper Analysis

We will be covering the paper analysis by students and experts one by one.

JEE Main 2018 Paper Analysis –

  • After the exam, the candidates are searching for Kjeldahl method and Frenkel defect. Few questions in chemistry made students scratch their head.
  • Surprisingly, unlike previous years, Mathematics section made a bit difficult in the level of difficulty.
  • The most difficult section in the exam was Physics. Candidates had a tough time to solve few questions.
  • Easiest of all was Chemistry section. Candidates did not have to think out of the box to solve it.

Kjeldahl method –  is a method for the quantitative determination of nitrogen contained in organic substances plus the nitrogen in tuck ammonia and ammonium (NH3/NH4+). Without modification, other forms of inorganic nitrogen, for instance nitrate, are not included in this measurement.This method does not give accurate percentage it gives only approximate calculation. – Wiki

Frenkel defect – is a type of defect in crystalline solids wherein an atom is displaced from its lattice position to an interstitial site, creating a vacancy at the original site and an interstitial defect at the new location within the same element without any changes in chemical properties. This defect is shown by ionic solids. The smaller ion (usually cation) is dislocated from its normal site to an interstitial site. – Wiki

At the Exam Center – The boys had to take off belts, socks, shoes, whereas, the girls were asked to remove shoes and bangles. This agitated few students but most of them co-operated. Candidates carrying watches, wallets, pen, pencils, electronic devices, etc were asked to leave it outside. The Board made sure that no unfair means was carried inside by checking the student with a metal detector.

JEE Main 2018 Analysis – This might be the last JEE Main conducted by CBSE because from next year onwards National Testing Agency will conduct the national level engineering entrance exam. CBSE has added 145 more cities to the list of JEE Main 2018 exam centers. This year, the exam is begin conducted in 258 cities and out of these 10 are abroad. Apart from this, mostly the process of the exam is the same as last year.

JEE Main 2018 Exam Pattern – The pattern of the examination has also not changed. Candidates had 3 hours to solve 90 question from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. The total marks of the exam are 360, hence, each question is for 4 marks. Candidates will only get 4 marks for a question if they will choose correct answer option. If the wrong answer is submitted by the candidates, negative marking of 1 mark shall be done.

JEE Main Paper Analysis – By Students

“The question paper was easy. If anyone has prepared well for class 11 and 12 then I am sure they will be able to score above 250. Since my physics is strong I did not had any difficulty in solving the questions but mathematics section was a little difficulty.” – Akhil Sharma

“Physics was the toughest section but non of the question was out of syllabus or too mind boggling. The level of the examination was also moderate. I gave JEE last year as well and this year it was mush easier” – Rajesh Kumar
