JEE (Advanced) 2016 Paper 1
Pattern of JEE (Advanced) 2016 Paper-1 was similar to that of 2015 test paper. It contained single answer correct type multiple choice questions (MCQs), multiple answer correct type MCQs and integer answer type MCQs. Some minor changes are , partial marking for multiple answer correct type MCQs was reintroduced . Secondly, the paper was more based on commonsense rather than calculative.
Paper I Section-wise analysis
In Chemistry, the overall difficulty level was moderate. There were at least four tough questions that could be easily misinterpreted. There were five questions from organic Chemistry, six from inorganic and seven from physical Chemistry.
In Mathematics, the paper was as tough as per the usual JEE standard. There were about five questions with lengthy solutions. Scoring in this paper seems to be a tough task.
The Physics paper was the easiest in comparison. All questions were standard and had clarity, reducing chances of students misunderstanding or struggling with the paper. The average score is expected to be between 45% and 65%.
JEE (Advanced) 2016 Paper 2
The format of the JEE (Advanced) 2016 Paper-2 is totally different from the previous years. There were more single option correct questions as compared to last year. The matrix match questions were also missing. Paragraph-based questions were given single correct options whereas in previous year, they were given multiple correct options.
Paper 2 -Section-wise analysis
The Chemistry paper was moderately difficult. At least four questions were difficult for students to analyse. There were five questions under inorganic Chemistry, seven under organic and six from physical Chemistry.
In Mathematics, Paper-2 was comparatively easier than Paper-1. Overall, the examination was balanced. There were no tricky questions. A large portion of the paper was from calculus and co-ordinate geometry. There were more question from 12th standard than 11th.
Unlike the JEE Paper 1, the Physics section was the most difficult of the three sciences. It contained two tricky questions that were hard to comprehend. The mechanics portion was also quite tough to answer. The average score is expected to be around 35%.
All the Best and Good Luck !
