IIT JEE (Main) Paper-wise Analysis - January 2019

IIT JEE (Main) Paper-wise Analysis - January 2019

By Admin / Feb 13, 2019

For April 2019 Aspirants:

  IIT JEE (Main) Paper-wise Analysis - January 2019  

Joint Entrance Examination - Main (JEE-Main) is an examination organized by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in India. Introduced in the year 2002, this national level competitive test is for admission to various undergraduate engineering and architecture courses. The test is mainly for admission into one of the 31 National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and 23 Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs).

JEE Main 2019 is conducted twice before the admissions begin for the upcoming academic session. The NTA conducted the first JEE (Main) in January 2019. The exam took place on 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th January, 2019. The second JEE (Main), taking place in April 2019, may fall between 6th April 2019 and 20th April 2019. Here is an analysis of the first set of the exams.

9th January paper analysis (JEE Main) - The exam was of easy to moderate level.

1). While the difficulty level of Mathematics was moderate, Physics' level was tough in comparison to Chemistry and Mathematics.
2). There were direct questions from NCERT.
3). Previous year JEE Main questions were also repeated in the examination.

10th January paper analysis (JEE Main) - In comparison to the 9th January exam, the Physics section of this exam was tougher. Even the Mathematics section of this exam was tough, as in the 9th January exam. Many students found the Chemistry questions confusing. The questions were the combinations of many topics.

1). Both Mathematics and Physics sections were tough. Though the questions in the Chemistry section were confusing, the difficulty level was moderate.
2). There were no changes in the pattern of paper as compared to the pattern of previous year papers.
3). Equal weightage was given to chapters from class XI & XII.

11th January paper analysis (JEE Main) - While the Chemistry section was the easiest one, Physics remained the toughest and lengthiest of all sections.

1). Concept based questions were asked in Physics. In Chemistry, some questions were directly picked from NCERT. Mathematics section was a bit lengthy with moderate level of difficulty.
2).Paper pattern remained the same as that of the exam held last year..
3). Questions were not multi-application based. Separate questions were there from separate chapters.

12th January paper analysis (JEE mains) - The level of difficulty of the paper was moderate.

1). 90% of the questions in the Physics section were formula-based.
2). Mathematics section was moderate to difficult level. Some questions involved calculations and most of the questions were from probability and linear programming.
3). The questions of the Chemistry section were mostly based on Organic Chemistry.


It can be concluded that Physics section was the toughest one in all the slots, Mathematics was of moderate level and Chemistry remained the easiest. In order to prepare for JEE main(April), the first task that the candidates need to accomplish is to get familiar with the paper pattern. For this, they need to solve all the previous year papers and January slot JEE main papers. As students have two and a half month time before the next attempt, they need to focus on the topics from which direct concept based questions come in the exam. They may refer to various books to make the concepts clear and increase the chance of scoring well in the examination. Also, they must attempt mock tests and analyze the mistakes to improve the concepts that went wrong. And hence, they should try not to make the same mistakes again.

In order to score well, focused preparation is a must. Following is the list of a few important topics of each section:

Physics - Electrodynamics, Mechanics, Modern Physics, Heat & Thermodynamics, SHM & Waves, Optics

Mathematics - Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Coordinate Geometry, Co-ordinate Geometry (3D), Matrix & Determinants, Probability, Trigonometry

Chemistry - Chemical Bonding, Periodic Table, Carbonyl compound and their derivatives, Solid State, Solutions and Gases Theory, Thermochemistry and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
