When the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main 2022 of the previous day’s morning shift concluded, students said they were quite satisfied with the chemistry paper. While the physics exam was fairly easy, the math paper remained difficult. “The numerical section had long calculations, while a few questions were reported long and inconvenient,” said Ramesh Batlish, Head-FIITJEE Noida, adding that questions came from nearly all chapters of the Class 11 and 12 CBSE board.
In mathematics, questions were asked from all chapters with an emphasis on conic sections and algebra chapters. Some good questions were asked from chapters like binomial theorem, statistics, mathematical reasoning, probability, matrices, progressions, circle, parabola, ellipse, 3D geometry, definite integrals, area under curves, differential equations.
The physics exam, which was an easy to intermediate level, consisted of questions from Kinematics, Laws of Motion, Heat and Thermodynamics, Electrostatics, Magnetism, AC Circuits, Current Electricity, Modern Physics, Beam and Wave Optics, Semiconductors, and SHM. “There were few numerical questions that were simple. Overall, this section was balanced according to the students,” Batlish added.
The easiest of all sections – chemistry – saw more focus on inorganic and organic chemistry. “Numerical based questions mostly came from physical chemistry including electrochemistry, mole concept, ionic equilibrium. Questions covered chemistry in everyday life, environmental chemistry, d-block, aldehydes and ketones, alcohols, phenols, biomolecules, chemical bonding, solutions, and atomic structure. Fact-based questions from NCERT were easy,” he added.
For session 1 of the JEE Main, which concludes today, the math issue has been repeatedly labeled as ‘difficult’ by several students. Many have experienced various calculation items as ‘long’. The physics and chemistry paper was relatively simpler.
Like the previous papers, there were a total of 90 questions and the total points of JEE Main Paper-1 was 300. Each of the sections had 30 MCQ-type questions. While four are awarded to the students for each correct answer, NTA deducts one point for each incorrect answer. The questions that have not been attempted will not be marked.
