ANALYSIS OF JEE MAIN 2016 PAPER
The analysis done by Hindustan Times for JEE Main 2016 is very simple and of quantitative type in nature it provides with only general details regarding the the exam like number of students,number of test centers established with no insight to details of paper.
Around 12 lakh students took the JEE Main 2016 examination on Sunday in over 2000 centres in 129 cities in India and abroad.
Paper I for BE/B Tech courses in 2016 was similar to the pattern in the past years – from 2011 to 2015. It had objective type questions with multiple choice with one out of four correct answers with equal weightage to physics, chemistry and mathematics.
There were 30 questions each in physics, chemistry and mathematics with four marks for a right answer and for each incorrect response, one-fourth of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted from the total score.
The paper was balanced and set from CBSE syllabus of Class 11 and 12. However, as expected many of the questions were conceptual with some needing analytical skills. Twenty seven questions were easy, 48 were of moderate difficulty level and 15 were of relatively higher difficulty level.
As in 2015, few questions in physics were tricky and challenging but compared to last year this section was a shade tougher. Further
Q. 84 (Set F) has two answers. One or two questions in chemistry were tricky prima-facie and compared to last year it was a bit tough.
Q. 17 (Set F) appears to have no matching answer in choices given. Mathematics compared to last year is also a little tough with few lengthy questions.
Overall, the difficulty level for the paper is moderate. For a student who has been focussed and serious all through the two years in improving speed and accuracy by taking regular quizzes and mock tests on JEE pattern, must have done reasonably well. It is always relative performance which matters in such highly competitive examinations.
