As per students’ reaction, Paper 2 was found tough as compared to Paper 1. Mathematics in Paper 2 was most difficult to solve while in Paper 1, Physics was the difficult one. At some centers in Bangalore, Paper 2 was postponed till 4 pm. Unlike last year, students will neither get the copy of question paper nor the copy of response sheet.
As JEE Advanced Exam Pattern is not fixed, this year too, some changes were observed in the paper pattern. This exam is considered as one of, if not the toughest to crack in India. Subject weightage, marking schemes, question formats and even total marks are unknown variables in this exam.

JEE Advanced Paper Analysis 2018

Paper 1

  • Physics was difficult while Mathematics and Chemistry were comparatively easy. 
  • The level of difficulty in Paper 1 was marked moderate with maximum weightage given to class 12 syllabus.
  • No mistakes in question paper have been reported till now.
  • Questions based on Numerical and Conic section had troubled most of the test takers.
  • Generally, in Numerical Type Answers, the answer is usually given in digits (0 – 9) but this time, applicants were asked to give answers with decimal points.
  • There were not many theoretical based questions in Chemistry. And some questions had a lot of calculations.

Paper 2

  • Mathematics was tough. Presence of Matrices based questions made it lengthy.
  • Physics and Chemistry sections were comparatively easy.
  • Questions based on Integration were more in number as compared to 2017.
  • According to experts, the CRL may go around 125.
  • Many students found the difficulty of the paper as moderate.
  • Till now, no mistake has been reported in the question paper.
  • The total number of questions in JEE Advanced Paper 2 has remained same but the maximum marks changed to 180 from 183.
  • As compared to Paper 1, Paper 2 was relatively difficult.

JEE Advanced Paper Analysis 2017

The following section defines the JEE Advanced Paper Analysis 2017. 

JEE Advanced 2017 was held on May 21, 2017 at various centers across the country. JEE Advanced 2017 is the key for admissions to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). 

  • There is no set examination pattern for JEE Advanced and most of the questions are easy towards being more subjective or analytical.
  • Negative marks are given to the candidates for an incorrect response to a question.
  • Last year, both Paper I and Paper II were of 186 marks each, this year Paper I and Paper II were conducted for a total of 183 marks each. Thus, the grand total for JEE Advanced 2017 including Paper I and Paper II is 366 marks.

Paper-1 Analysis

Paper 1 was found to be moderately difficult. The examination was conceived as easier when compared to last year.

  • Multiple-correct choice questions awards students with 4 marks for fully correct answers, 1 mark for partially correct answers and deducted 2 marks for incorrect answers.
  • Integer type questions awarded students with 3 marks for each correct answer, with no negative marking. Passage type single choice questions awarded students 3 marks for each correct answer and deducted 1 mark for each incorrect one. The paper was worth a total of 183 marks.

Thus, the exam consisted of 21 multiple correct choice questions that constituted 84 marks of the examination, 15 integer type questions made up 45 marks and 18 passage type questions made up 54 marks.

Paper-2 Analysis

  • Paper 2 was found to be relatively easy. Compared to last year, the paper was slightly easier.
  • It was comparatively easier than Paper 1. Single choice questions awarded students 3 marks for the correct answer and docked 1 mark for the incorrect one
  • Passage category single choice questions rewards the students with 3 marks for the correct choice, with no negative marks.
  • 21 single choice questions constituted 63 marks, 21 multiple correct choice questions constituted 84 marks, and 12 passage type single choice questions made up 36 marks.

Physics Analysis

Physics section of paper-1 was moderately difficult. Questions included in Physics were a mix of conceptual and formula-based. Mentioned below is chapter wise weightage of Paper-1 Physics section.

Maximum questions were asked from Electromagnetic Induction and Modern Physics.

Physics was considered to be moderate in difficult. Compared to last year though, it was relatively easier. A majority of the questions were conceptual and needed students to be strong with basics. This year, 18 questions were asked from 12 chapters. Following is the analysis of chapter wise marking scheme as well as the number of questions:
