JEE Main 2017 Exam Analysis by Students:

We talked to various students at the JEE Main 2017 Exam Center and this is what they have to say:

“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

Previous Year JEE Main Paper Analysis

The analysis of JEE Main last year is as given below. Candidates can have a look at it to understand the level of the upcoming examination.

Subject Wise Analysis of JEE Main

Physics was the toughest section and the easiest was chemistry. On the other hand, Mathematics, to everyone’s surprise, was a bit on the easier side.

According to the experts, the level of difficult  and easy questions in each subject and overall was as below:

Subject Easy Level Medium Level Difficult Level
No of MCQs Marks No of MCQs Marks No of MCQs Marks
Physics 13 52 12 48 5 20
Chemistry 10 40 15 60 5 20
Mathematics 14 56 13 52 3 12
Total 37 148 40 160 12 52

Topics with Most Weightage

Last year, the topics from which the maximum number of questions were asked were:

Subject Topics No of Questions Marks
Physics Modern Physics 8 32
Electrodynamics 6 24
Optics 3 12
Heat & Thermodynamics 3 12
SHM & Waves 3 12
Mathematics Coordinate Geometry 5 20
Differential Calculus 5 20
Integral Calculus 4 16
Circle 2 8
Matrix & Determinants 2 8
Co-ordinate Geometry (3-D) 2 8
Sequence & Series 2 8
Trigonometry 2 8
Chemistry Organic Chemistry-II 8 32
Inorganic Chemistry-II 6 24
Inorganic Chemistry-I 6 24
Physical Chemistry-I 4 16
Physical Chemistry-II 4 16
Hydrocarbon (Alkane, Alkene & Alkyne) 3 12

: Candidates can refer to these topics during last minute preparation but should not devote their entire time on these only. There is no guarantee that even this year the same topics will be given the most weightage.

Getting a Good Score in JEE Main 2017

A good score is that which can land a student in top institutes like NIT and IIITs. But the question is, what is a good score for JEE Main?…Well, it has been observed that if a candidate manages to score around 250 to 260 marks their chances of getting admission in desired top college and branches increases.

To secure it, candidates must score between 80 to 90 marks in each subject. Now, we know that there is no sectional cutoff in JEE Main. Yet, keeping in mind that the average accuracy level will be somewhere around 70%,   this approx score will help candidates in setting a fruitful target.

Top Score in JEE Main

A good score, as explained above, will help candidates in securing a seat in a good college. However, a top score is that which will lead the race and will leave behind a benchmark for those who will participate next year.

The highest marks last year were 345, out of 360 and the same was the score in the year 2015 as well. This is how high the top score can be.

JEE Main Paper Analysis 2016

A detailed JEE Main 2016 analysis of the question paper, its difficulty level, the JEE Main answer keys and solutions are given here. The Joint Entrance Examination (Mains) organized by CBSE, is taken by more than 10,00,000 candidates every year.

An analysis of the JEE Main 2016 indicates how easy or tough the questions were, what cut off candidates may expect, and how to plan further for engineering admissions.

How much marks to score in JEE Main 2016 to get admission in a good engineering college?

Students who take the JEE Main exam, or any engineering entrance exam, often wish to know how much they should score to get admission in a good engineering college. To answer this subjectively, one must know the following points first.

  • To be eligible for JEE Advanced, candidate must be in the top 2,00,000 JEE Main 2016. Check details of JEE Advanced eligibility criteria to know more.
  • The JEE Main 2016 All India Rank is determined by taking into account score obtained in the entrance exam (60% weightage) and performance in board exams (40% weightage). Thus, the AIR which will ultimately decide chances of admission will depend heavily on candidate’s board exam performance also. Check the details of JEE Main Rank Predictor to get an idea of your rank based on both parameters.
  • A good engineering college could mean IITs for one candidate, top NITs for another, or a specific college that provides a specific branch of science of technology for another. Cut offs for each college being different, candidate must properly analyse the past year cut offs to know chance of admission in each. Past year NITs, IIITs cut off for every college is given here, JoSAA Cut Off.
