JEE Main 2017 Trend Analysis

The number of candidates that appear for JEE Main has increased exponentially. Total 183640 candidates appeared for JEE Main 2017, 72% of which were male and rest 28% were female.

From JEE Main 2017 Question Paper Analysis, we infer that the questions asked were quite similar to the questions asked in JEE Main 2016. Most of the questions asked were time consuming, making the paper lengthy. Mathematics section was the most tricky, followed by Physics and Chemistry. The overall difficulty level of JEE Main 2017 was moderate. More questions were asked from Class XII CBSE Syllabus than Class XI.

JEE Main 2017- Physics Analysis

Physics section was easier than that in JEE Main 2016. However moderately difficult, the section was lengthier. Students who focused on more numerical based questions than application based were at an advantage as more numercials were asked in this section. 19 questions were asked from Class XII syllabus and 11 from Class XI. Here is a chapter-wise analysis of the section.

JEE Main 2017 Paper Analysis, JEE Main Paper Analysis

JEE Main 2017- Chemistry Analysis

This section was considered to be the easiest among all the three sections. It wasn’t lengthy as more theory based questions were asked which made it easy and quick to solve. 17 questions were asked from Class XII while 13 were from Class XI syllabus. The chapter-wise weightage of Chemistry is given in the graph:

JEE Main 2017- Mathematics Analysis

This section, however easier than previous year, was considered to be the most difficult one due to lengthy and time-consuming problems. 20 questions were asked from Class XII and 10 from Class XI syllabus. The chapter wise-distribution of questions in this section is mentioned below:

JEE Main 2016 Paper Analysis

Overall, the students found the paper a balanced one with a few conceptual questions that required higher analytical skills. Mathematics section was comparitively lengthier than the last year.

  • Physics section was the toughest among all the sections. The questions from chapters such as Simple Harmonic Motion, Modern Physics, Electrostatics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Work Power and Energy were comparatively difficult.
  • Other topics which were asked are Magnetics & EMI, Heat & Thermodynamics, Electrostatics & Current Electricity, Mechanics, Optics & Waves, SMH, Waves & Elasticity, Modern Physics, Semi-Conductors, EM Waves and Principles of Communication. 
  • Chemistry section fluctuated from being easy to moderately difficult. Chemistry has been one of the easiest section in JEE Main. However the students found this section a little trickier this year.
  • Mathematics section of Paper 2 which is conducted for admission in B.Arch was considered to be the toughest one. 
  • 80 questions were asked from Math & General Reasoning. Mathematics section consists of 30 questions and carries a total weightage of 120 marks.
