The country's largest engineering entrance exam, the JEE Main Paper 1 (BE/BTech) was conducted in offline mode, i.e in paper and pencil format today, i.e. April 2. Some students were happy with the question paper and some found it a bit difficult.
"The exam was easy and direct. I solved the questions very quickly and most of the questions were asked from the syllabus. Chemistry and Physics questions were directly asked from NCERT book, but Mathematics section was a bit lengthy," says a student Yash Panwar
"The exam was of moderate level. I would not say too difficult also, but I would say some part of Mathematics questions were too lengthy to solve and it took a lot of time. I was failed to give much of time to Physics and Chemistry," says another student.
There were three parts in the question paper A, B and C consisting of physics, chemistry and mathematics having 30 questions each in each part of the equal weightage. Each question was allotted four marks for correct response. The test was held for a duration of three hours.
More than 12 lakh students will be competing to secure a seat in their dream engineering college. Top 2.2 Lakhs students will qualify for JEE Advanced which is conducted by the Joint Admission Board of the IIT's. Whereas, CBSE will publish a separate merit list comprising All India Rank and Home State Rank based on JEE Main score basis which can be opted by the students for their desired engineering college viz NIT, IIIT, Central Funded Technical Institutes.
Wishing good luck to candidates for their results.
