JEE ADVANCED Paper-1 and Paper-2 Analysis

JEE (Advanced) 2016: Analysis of Paper 1 and Paper 2

This year’s JEE (Advanced) Paper-1 was similar to those prior to 2015 – it contained single answer correct type multiple choice questions (MCQs), multiple answer correct type MCQs and integer answer type MCQs

There were two key changes though.

Firstly, partial marking for multiple answer correct type MCQs was reintroduced. Secondly, the paper was more logical than calculative.

Section-wise analysis

In Chemistry, the overall difficulty level was moderate. There were at least four tough questions that could be easily misinterpreted. There were five questions from organic Chemistry, six from inorganic and seven from physical Chemistry.

Given the difficulty level of the paper, scoring 80% would be a task.

In Mathematics, the paper was as tough as per the usual JEE standard. There were about five questions with lengthy solutions. Scoring in this paper will also be difficult.

The Physics paper was the easiest in comparison. All questions were standard and had clarity, reducing chances of students misunderstanding or struggling with the paper.

The average score is expected to be between 40% and 60%

JEE (Advanced) Paper 2

The format of the JEE (Advanced) 2016 Paper-2 drastically differed from the previous years. There were more single option correct questions as compared to last year. The matrix match questions were also missing. Paragraph-based questions were given single correct options whereas in previous year, they were given multiple correct options.

Section-wise analysis

The Chemistry paper was moderately difficult. At least four questions were difficult for students to analyse.

There were five questions under inorganic Chemistry, seven under organic and six from physical Chemistry. Scoring 85% in this paper will be tough.

In Mathematics, Paper-2 was comparatively easier than Paper-1. Overall, the examination was balanced.

There were no tricky questions. A large portion of the paper was from calculus and co-ordinate geometry. There were more question from 12th standard than 11th.

Unlike the JEE Paper 1, the Physics section was the most difficult of the three sciences. It contained two tricky questions that were hard to comprehend. The mechanics portion was also quite tough to answer. The average score is expected to be around 33%.

For an average student, the test would have been difficult to handle.

JEE Advanced: No Change in Pattern


Students preparing for JEE 2017 may not have to give an aptitude test as there may not be any change in the existing two-tier pattern of JEE main and advanced, sources said.
The JEE is a national common entrance examination conducted to provide admissions to several engineering courses, including the prestigious Indian Institutes of Engineering (IITs).
In October last year, the human resources development (HRD) ministry had formed a committee to suggest changes to the present joint entrance exam, which recommended introducing an aptitude test. But it is learnt that the ministry, after studying the committee’s suggestion, remains undecided. A section of stakeholders feels that any new aptitude exam, which is online, may be against the interests of the rural and socially backward students.
Ministry sources said that in search of a consensus, there may not be any change from the existing pattern.
The report was prepared by a group of experts led by academician Ashok Mishra to test “the scientific thinking”. The committee had recommended that a National Authority for Testing (NAT) be formed that would hold tests on the basis of which around four lakh students would be shortlisted for JEE.
The committee held JEE itself will be along the lines of current JEE (advanced), designed to test knowledge in physics, chemistry and mathematics, and conducted by IITs. The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) currently conducts JEE-Main while IITs conduct JEE-Advanced.
Also, designing a cognitive test is bound to be a time-consuming exercise — it seems unlikely the ministry will be able to implement the committee’s suggestions soon.
The committee had also suggested that no weightage be given to board exams for National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other centrally funded technical institutions (CFTIs). Currently, 40% weight is given to Class 12 board marks for admission into NITs and CFTIs. The committee had recommended that the 40% weightage given to the marks at the JEE (Main) level be discontinued.
“But it was pointed out that when weightage has been given to the class 12 boards, the girls and rural students could do better. Keeping these equity issues in mind, the ministry is contemplating not to change this system for 2017,” said a senior official.

JEE Mains 2017 to be Held Outside Too in 8 Countries, Foreign Students Welcome


In a relief for Indian and foreign students who study in the Gulf and adjoining Asian countries, the entrance exam to IITs will be held in 8 countries from the year 2017 onwards, said a statement. The countries include Singapore, UAE, Ethiopia and 5 SAARC nations, including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.While the centres in these countries will be administered by the CBSE as part of the ongoing JEE-Mains and JEE-Advanced exams, the seats to be allocated for foreigners under this quota will not affect the already existing quota for Indian students, it clarified.The entrance exam for IITs will be administered in these centres with the help of Indian embassies or high-commissions. Currently, there are 18 IITs/NITs in the country and the seats number more than 10,000. The fee for foreign students will not be subsidised, said the statement.The students selected for IITs/NITs will be given research visa for the full study period instead of annual visas given to foreign students, said the statement.

IIT-JEE Advanced 2016-No Changes In Boards Marks Weightage

Putting an end to the confusion of students amid the speculation of major changes, IIT to continue with their existing pattern of the two-tier selection process. IIT JEE Advanced is going to be held on May 22, 2016.  However, this time the 2 lakh students will be able to sit for the exam as against 1.5 lakh for the upcoming year. IIT Guwahati will be conducting the JEE Advanced 2016.
The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has decided to continue with the existing pattern of boards marks as well. Like every year, 40 per cent weight will be given to board marks and 60 per cent to the JEE-Main score. The eligibility criteria will also remain same for the students, although, those students who have already accepted any of the seats in any of the IITs or ISM in 2015 will not be allowed for the JEE Advanced in 2016. 
IIT Council had been mulling major changes in the examination pattern such as single entrance test and weightage of boards marks, however, Committee of Eminent Persons (CEP) constituted by the IIT Council decided not to make any changes for 2016. The changes, if accepted, will be applicable from 2017. 
The changes being mulled in the selection of students is multiple online tests to select top 4 lakh students who would be eligible to appear for JEE. The panel has recommended National Testing Service which is likely to be set up in 2016. The idea is to test the students'  scientific ability and discourage the culture of coaching. The IIT aspirants need to give two-tier entrance tests namely, JEE Mains followed by JEE Advanced to get admission in IITs. Pitching the National Institute of Technology (NIT) admission procedure, IIT had asked for single entrance test for admissions. For NIT, clearing only JEE Mains is required for admissions.
