JEE Main Previous Year Paper Analysis

  • Mathematics section was the toughest and lengthiest last year.
  • Chemistry was the easiest as the questions were more theoretical in nature.
  • Level of difficulty was moderate for Physics portion. Questions were more calculative than theory-based.
  • The over-all difficulty was somewhere between moderate and tough. The paper cannot be called to tough, nor can it be called too moderate.
