Paper was balanced and was set from CBSE syllabus of Classes XI and XII.

In D-Set, question No. 34 and 54 of Physics were tough and needed analytical ability beyond NCERT book.

JEE Main 2017 Exam Pattern

The pattern was same as the previous year. There was a slight change as this year Physics was a bit tougher than Math. Chemistry was way easy, as someone who has prepared for the boards thoroughly. There were 90 questions carrying 4 marks each. All the questions were objective in nature with only one correct answer. The table below provides the distribution of marks among all the three sections.

In this Section, there were few question which were made by clubbing two different topics. This is a new change which can be seen in many questions. In Physics, 19 were easy 10 were medium whereas in Mathematics 17 were of easy level. One question each was tough in both Physics & Mathematics.

Unlike every year there was a change in trend. The weightage of Inorganic was less than other two parts of Chemistry which was completely different in previous two year JEE Main papers. The weightage of Inorganic was always more than other two sections.

In Chemistry, two out of three questions required deep conceptual understanding and application.

JEE Main 2017 Mathematics Analysis

Mathematics was considered by most to be the most difficult of the three subjects, purely due to its lengthiness, despite being comparatively easier than last year. This year there were few questions which were made by combining two topics. Like there was a question of Permutations in which the variance was asked at the end of question.

In Mathematics, Set-D Q 28 was controversial and few questions were lengthy. However, serious students found paper relatively easy compared to last year.
