From JEE Main 2017 Question Paper Analysis, we infer that the questions asked were quite similar to the questions asked in JEE Main 2016. More questions were asked from Class XII CBSE Syllabus than Class XI. Mathematics section was the most tricky, followed by Physics and Chemistry. The overall difficulty level of JEE Main 2017 was moderate. Most of the questions asked were time-consuming, making the paper lengthy.
Physics section was easier than that in JEE Main 2016. Students who focused on more numerical based questions than application based were at an advantage as more numerals were asked in this section. However moderately difficult, the section was lengthier. Here is a chapter-wise analysis of the section. 19 questions were asked from Class XII syllabus and 11 from Class XI.
This section was considered to be the easiest among all the three sections. It wasn’t long 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.
This section, however easier than earlier 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.
Overall, the students establish the paper a balanced one with a few conceptual questions that need higher analytical skills. Mathematics section was comparatively lengthier than the last year.
Aspirants can check the overall difficulty level of JEE Main Paper 1 below.
