JEE Main 2017 Trend Analysis

The number of aspirants that appear for JEE Main has increased exponentially. Total 183640 aspirants 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. 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.

JEE Main 2017- Physics Analysis

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.

JEE Main 2017- Chemistry Analysis

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.

JEE Main 2016 Paper Analysis

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.

  • Mathematics section of Paper 2 which is organized for admission in B.Arch was considered to be the toughest one. 
  • Other topics which were asked are Magnetics & EMI, Heat & Thermodynamics, Electrostatics & Present Electricity, Mechanics, Optics & Waves, SMH, Waves & Elasticity, Modern Physics, Semi-Organizers, EM Waves and Principles of Communication. 
  • 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.
  • 80 questions were asked from Math & General Reasoning. Mathematics section consists of 30 questions and carries a total weight of 120 marks. 
  • Chemistry section fluctuated from being easy to moderately difficult. Chemistry has been one of the easiest section in JEE Main. However, the students establish this section a little trickier this year.
