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.
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.
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:
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:
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.
Candidates can check the overall difficulty level of JEE Main Paper 1 below.
|Level of Difficulty||Number of Questions|
The table below is an analysis of mathematics section of JEE Main from past years and lists the number of questions asked from each chapter.
