IIT JEE (Main) 2015 Paper (1): Analysis

The paper based test for Joint Entrance Exam (Main) 2015 was held on April 4. Lakhs of students from various Boards came to sit for the test. Paper (1), held for admissions to BE and B.Tech courses kicked off at 9:30 am and concluded at 12:30 pm.

The paper was moderate in terms of difficulty level. Neither it was too hard to solve, nor too easy. The paper consisted of three sections: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics

Physics: It was the toughest amongst the three; the questions that were included in this section were a little tricky. Out of the 30 questions from Physics, only five questions were theory based, the rest 25 were numerical based questions. It was a time consuming section. Some experts also believe that the questions in this section were ambiguous, which increased the difficulty level.

Mathematics: This section, however, not difficult, was found a little lengthy by the examinees. It had a good mix of questions. Also, some students complained of the errors in the Maths section.

Chemistry: It was a comparatively easy section to solve. The questions were all fact based. This section was not very time consuming.

For every correct answer, four marks will be allotted. The paper had 90 questions, carrying 360 marks. The online exam is slated to be held on April 10 and 11.

This exam, held by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a national level engineering entrance exam that opens the doors for admission to Centrally-funded institutions such as National Institute of Technology (NIT) and others. Besides, it is the first screening test for the IITs.
