Question Attempting Insights to Clear JEE Main Cut off
Candidates appearing for JEE Main must have certain strategies for time management, selection of questions and accuracy. All these factors are interdependent on each other and essential for a successful attempt. Candidates should have clarity on how many questions they aim to attempt. They should also have a rough picture on what topics they can or can not attempt.
With the increasing competition in JEE Main, it is a must for the candidates to set specific targets. Here are some section-wise tips which can assist you in finding the accurate paper attempting approach:
Mathematics: Mathematics level has been easy to moderate since 3 years and topics like Matrices, Vector 3D, Determinants are some of the high scoring topics. Questions from Height and Distance and Trigonometry have not been asked from these chapters in recent years.
A person is likely to score 45-50 marks if he/she attempts 20 questions in Mathematics with 60% accuracy provided the candidate attempts all integer questions(non-negative questions). More emphasis should be laid on attempting integer questions rather than single choice questions.
Physics: For the last 5 years, Physics has been the toughest section of all which includes a lot of lengthy questions. The numerical part of the paper is generally asked from 11th standard whereas the conceptual part is mostly from 12th standard. One must concentrate more on the latter as it is a comparatively scoring part.
With a 70% accuracy, if a candidate attempts 15 questions of Physics section, he/she can score more than 30 marks.
Chemistry: The Chemistry section is believed to be the easiest one where organic and inorganic questions are more of conceptual type. These questions should be given more focus due to direct correspondence with respective options.
If a candidate is able to attempt 22 Chemistry questions with 80% accuracy, he/she can score more than 60 marks.

JEE Main 2017- Chemistry Analysis
- This section was considered to be the easiest among all the three sections.
- In Chemistry, the maximum questions were asked from Organic Chemistry – 8 questions, for a total of 32 marks.
- It wasn’t lengthy 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.
