# This note has been used to help create the JEE Exam Preparation wiki

For all the Class XII Students In India, today was a major day . Today, we had our JEE Mains paper that decides our admission in various different colleges!

However, the paper was way too tough especially as compared to their previous papers. The physics part was extremely lengthy and Maths was also difficult.

I checked my score with Resonance Answer sheet. I am getting 290 out of 360 considering the bonus they have given! Phy- 82 Chem-115 Maths-96

What do you think? How did your paper go?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Everyone thinks that his paper is tougher than previous years. People of 2013 would say theirs was tougher!

Chem was extremely easy. Physics was a bit better than previous year. Maths was almost of same level as last year. Overall they maintained same difficulty level.

I just had a look at the paper (I am giving the online exam). It certainly seemed tough! I also read in the newspaper that there were a few errors. By the way, Jatin didn't you find the answer to that question on the bubble escaping from the bottom of the container wrong? I got a particular option by assuming that a bubble has two surfaces in water. However according to me a bubble should have only one surface in water.A long time ago on Brilliant (when we had weekly challenges) there was a question on bubbles in water. In that question I clearly remember that the surface tension was taken as $\frac{2T}{R}$ and not $\frac{4T}{R}$.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

None of the options there is correct. Only inside surface is free , hence, we take it to be $\frac{2T}{R}$. By the way, I used forces approach, and got $R^2\sqrt{\frac{2\rho_{w}g}{3T}}$. I am sad that even those who didn't get this would get marks! Best of luck for your exam :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Thanks a lot !!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Hey Karthik....How was yours?? Expected score??

- 6 years, 10 months ago

My fault...didn't see u were giving the online exam... ALL THE BEST!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

you are correct..because we take 4T/R in the case of soap bubble which was not mentioned and yet CBSE didn't find it wrong.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

yes

- 6 years, 9 months ago

So, did you give Mains exam too? How much are you expecting?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

so all those who gave JEE-mains ----------did brilliant really helped you all in achieving you goal?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

no........ u better be away from brilliant...it's a waste of time. regarding the preparation of jee

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Im getting around 209 marks out of 360, according to Resonance Answer Key. Physics : 73, Chemistry: 75, Maths: 61...Is it good or bad? I dont think it is very good.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Erm....are you kidding us Anish? I doubt you got these less marks.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well, Im not much of a scholar Pranav. I expected about 225 or so (atleast), but it has turned out to be around 214.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I hope you didn't take me as being rude.

But I am very much shocked to see these marks from an intelligent guy like you. Me, the dumb guy, had 228 previous year, I suggest you to recheck. :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

You are a brilliant guy and I think you are heavily underestimating yourself,Pranav.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Agreed!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Not at all Pranav.You were being not rude, but merely being honest.

But believe me when I say that I wasn't shocked to see these marks. I was very much nervous before the paper. Also, the signing stuff (where you have to sign at all places, write your name, roll no. at all places), its so distracting.

Anyways, maybe I should have been more confident. I used to get about 250-260 marks in the AITS examinations, but apparently, JEE-Mains was tougher than these exams, so that might be the reason for the lesser marks.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Start preparation for jee adv and forget the main exam. Always be relaxed before any exam . I had left studies at 4th and just relaxed(watched movie, played indoor games etc.) and was chilled in the exam.

I believe you have good amount of skills and can get a good score in advanced. Keep calm!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

How much did you score, Jatin?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I get 315: Physics - 110 , Chem - 95 , Maths - 110

- 6 years, 10 months ago

My God! 110 in Physics! You really are brilliant! So, am i talking to future AIR-1 ?!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

- 6 years, 10 months ago

OMG!! That is just amazing!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

amazing you"ll be inside the top 50air

- 6 years, 10 months ago

He deserves that rank! :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

You are really a brilliant guy.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Good Job!!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Do you go to any coaching classes ? And congrats for such high marks! :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I didn't appeared for this jee,can you please tell how is its nature

- 6 years, 9 months ago

Even at our center, they disturbed us in between the exam and asked us to sign this, get thumb prints, its all so distracting! and dude, you are a big scholar and i think you will score big in JEE Advance ! I am getting around 290 and I was coming out of the hall, so sad! But after seeing that everybody suffered because of this paper, i am beginning to think that 290 is a good score! But Don't you think that this time the paper was a bit too tough? As compared to last many years the level of questions was too high!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

This is sad to know. I wish you good luck for JEE-Advanced, do your best there! And don't panic. :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

From no angle do u seem to be a dumb guy ..(No offense intended)!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Expected Rank - Less than 10000, at least!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Hey chill!! Take some time off and relax...Dont worry...That was just one off say. I am sure u will do well in Advanced..ALL THE BEST!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah I think it is really a good score in such a paper... it was really tough and lengthy.... I'll be giving on 9th Apr online lets see what happens!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

@Arijit Banerjee So how was your paper?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

easy one but in the physics section i cudn score well.... I attempted around 14 questions ... chem was easy ...maths moderate.... I'm xpecting around 160...overall the paper was easier than offline...

- 6 years, 10 months ago

This time my profs are saying even 160 is good. You will get into some good college.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I am xpecting 90% in my boards ... can u ask ur profs whether is it possible to get in NIT durgapur or somewhere better ?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Anish, I think 214 marks are really good. This is because the paper pattern and level and type of questions were significantly different from what was expected on the basis of previous year's paper and AITS of several coaching classes. When people in the cream of the lot like you suffer the jolt( at least this is what I feel by your words) it is pretty obvious that the average score is going to suffer and go down significantly and so would the cut off marks. So, getting roughly 20 to 30 marks less than your expectations is not a bad performance provided the paper. This question paper probably just gives a hint of level of impending Advanced question paper. Hope it is not the tip of the iceberg.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I really do hope its not the tip of the iceberg. Btw, how much are you getting? Definitely around 250-260 right?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well it is around 300 to 304.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well done! What marks did you get in different sections?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Thank you! It is like: Physics -92 Chemistry- 101 Mathematics - 107

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Nice!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

My god! How do you get so many marks???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I know ..right???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Awesome Sudeep! :D

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Wow Man, those are awesome marks!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

So are yours!! Congratulations!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah, well could have crossed 300 if not for silly mistakes in Physics! But still, I am very happy with my score! and congratulations to you too!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Check with the FIITJEE one too...:D

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Can you provide me the link? I cant find it.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

- 6 years, 10 months ago

According to FIITJEE answer key, I get 214 marks. The answers differ for only one question (in physics)

How much are you getting?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

i still got 238.....how much are you getting Rohan?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

@Anish Puthuraya , @Aabhas Mathur : I am writing Mains online on 12th, since there is no offline centre here in Bangalore. I will tell you my score as soon as possible. Thanks for letting me know yours!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

ALL THE BEST!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

@Rohan Rao How was your paper?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Never mind, found it.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Vidyamandir Classes (where I study ) was first one to give solutions yesterday. You can check : Jee mains 2014 VMC solutions

- 6 years, 10 months ago

In which batch you were at vidyamandir classes?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well jatin it would be very kind of you if you could suggest me how to avoid trivial mistakes in the examination , i got 220 but could have gotten 300 at least, i did so many mistakes during the examination especially after applying the correct formula. I think its because of time stress.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well, you should analyze why did you lack time. You seem to say that you wouldn't have done mistakes if you had sufficient time. Never give much time to a problem that you are unable to solve, or which seems lengthy.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

i am a fool could have got more but satisfied with 182

- 6 years, 10 months ago

hi jatin I am also going to study in VMC classes founders batch. you were studying in which batch and what helped you to clear IIT and got wonderful marks

- 6 years, 10 months ago

i will be giving jee next year any suggestion for preparing for the exam ????

- 6 years, 10 months ago

- 6 years, 10 months ago

all the best for your exam :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Thnx

- 6 years, 10 months ago

all right thanks i just needed a students point of view too ............

- 6 years, 10 months ago

@Kavya Rawat Well i'll suggest to do all past year papers possible and all your homework at your coaching!!!......and best of luck for preparation :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

thank you :)

- 6 years, 10 months ago

good , you"ll get nit trichy easily if you get above 90 percent in board exams if you r planning for iit just see if u r quallified or not ,209 mean u r qualified in main now just try to get maximum marks in jee advanced because those marks really matter

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I'm in class 9 in India and I want to know how am i supposed to prepare for the IIT-JEE exams. Could someone please give me suggestions?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I am getting 238 TOTAL.......Maths-96, Phy-57,Chem-85

- 6 years, 10 months ago

How much time did u spend behind doing the maths paper?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Normal like between 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes

- 6 years, 10 months ago

chem was quite easy... i completed it in 35 min....and maths took 70 minutes was quite calculative that (AGP) question ....and most interesting one was to find the radius of the circle....it took time....physics was tough for me.........getting 205 out of 360...

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well Anish I just know you because of Brilliant. I am seriously shocked by knowing your marks after seeing your problem solving ability in brilliant. I expected you to get around 320 like jatin. I advice you not to spend more time in brilliant and keep your calm. Remember cracking JEE is not only good prob solving ability but also to keep ur calm and your mind and body in harmony during the exam. Speed is also important. well i got around 285 but i bet u my problem solving ability atleast in physics is not as good as yours.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Getting a damned 196[IItian Pace answer key] in exam. I am pissed. I got the paper 20 mins late, I solved my chem in 20 mins, math in 40 mins. It really got in my nerves and lost my calm. Maybe better in JEE Advanced. But what would be your board scores. I am expecting my rank to be in 8K-10K range. Last year 180+90% maharashtra board was around 6K. This year definitely it was a bit more tougher. I am really screwed this year it seems. After all the great performance and good work my luck sold me out. Really depressed. I have also counted the 2 bonuses as suggested by pace.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Im pissed as well. So, you're not alone. I expect my rank to be around 5000

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I paid for someone elses mistake. They gave us late and took at 12.30 Same happened at a nearby centre as well. Abhi lets see what happens in JEE Advanced.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I really got pissed too when I realized that though they had given the paper late they were intending to collect on time. I also got about 15 min less and as a result of which I was unable to attempt the questions which I could have easily attempted given the time. Nonetheless, hope they do not do something like this in Advanced where 15 min will matter a lot.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

At least you guys got around 300 man. My from 250-280 I slid down. I get very nervous if even a little disturbance aka deviation occurs. Cost me my paper. After the paper I thought I wont even get JEE advance. My only advantage I had a good board exam, so should get a decent rank. If by a big blunder I miss IIT I will get in some IIIT[not HYD, any other ones].

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Do u think giving the online exam would be better...?? Probably we wouldnt lose time like this...

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Tanya here are some simple advantages of online exam. 1. Lots of extra sheets. 2. Exam at a date later than offline. 3. No issues of giving the paper on time and stuff. Time starts when you click start on the exam. Disadvantage. Although JEE board touts a lot of stuff about Online exam you may get a crappy computer and a far away centre. For me for pen paper I got a centre 2 mins from my home. Local CBSE school.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Woah!! Lucky u for greeting a centre so close to if home!! What would u suggest??? Personally I was thinking that I'd rather have 15 minutes less than a crappy comp.... What do u say??

- 6 years, 10 months ago

True. Which city are you from? Some cities have no/few offline centres. Better consult with your coaching class. If you wanna take online take online exams at your coaching class. Nowadays all classes have started to provide it. On the technology front I do not trust Indian government.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

In Mumbai...Sure, Ill ask them..Thanks for the suggestion

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I JUST WANT TO TELL ALL THE STUDENTS WHO APPEARED FOR JEE MAINS 2014 THAT YOU CAN PREDICT YOUR RANK IN JEE MAINS BY FILLING IN YOUR EXPECTED MARKS. HERE IS THE LINK : http://www.fiitjee-ftre.com/RankPredictorJeeMain.aspx#.U0OpyaiSyZw

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Thanks for the link.....i got 1000-2000 expected after adding expected board scores!!! will have to work hard for advanced.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I got a rank of 5K-7K. Okay I am quite just satisfied.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

How much did you write the expected Board %? Also, which board are you in?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

90%, Maharashtra HSC Board.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Ok. But do you think the normalization is fair? Because, an increase in just 1% in Boards makes a huge difference in the rank, while an difference of 10-12 marks in Mains doesn't make as significant a difference.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Very true. Moreover the marking system in different boards is different and so are examiner's and boards' expectations regarding the way the answer is written. As a result, what we see is a very large difference between cut off percentage in different boards (about 30%) which really arises doubt about the validity and viability about such systems. To make the matter worse, getting 1% more in boards is not really difficult and can be achieved with better mugging up skills without the knowledge about the subject. However, to create an equivalent effect through the marks of JEE Main involves greater skill and knowledge. Thus the very way of incorporating this idea by forcibly bringing at par things which clearly are not and neither seem to be fairly possible in near future makes me feel disgusting. But well it is not possible to do anything regarding changing the process so just helplessly we have to obey it. :(

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I really liked the normalization of SAT exams far better than what is in JEE. Yes for ex AP board has a 95% cutoff while Maha board has just a meager 70% cut off. So it is not very fair actually. You ask keep only board exam and admit on basis of it or else only keep AIEEE exam forgetting the board. Instead of simplifying things they have complicated. They thought this was a genius idea but it has been an utter flop.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I haven't understood the normalisation process.... The only thing I concluded was that I am going to have to mug up stuff and nail the boards( like get above 90-95%,apart from doing well in mains)... Is that the gist???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Exactly. As far as the mathematics of the normalisation is concerned, it is extremely weird, complicated and it is really better off knowing the gist.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Ha ha... Thanx for telling me that... Makes me feel much better. How were your boards???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Pretty good.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah very true bro. I from Pace Anish.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

K bro just found CBSE guys from Mumbai are getting lower ranks even though they have the same percentage. Dont know why. Normalization shayaad may make a lot of issues. Just chill we will meet in IIT.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

We sure will meet. btw, which coaching insti are you from?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah its true...

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I am getting a total of 221 marks,and i think that's pretty awful,considering what all you people have scored.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Dude, your score is not that bad, besides there is another big exam coming up which you will definitely score better in.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah I know,but scoring around 250-300 marks can definitely boost confidence levels for the next exam as well!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Hey I too, gave my JEE Main paper on Sunday and honestly, I didn't find it to be too tough, though I am only getting 133 out of 360, but that is because I only attempted less than 20 questions in each subject and well got only 3 questions wrong in each one of them. However , thank you all for sharing your thoughts about this years paper and if smartpeople like you'll find it tough, then I am confident that my score will be enough to propel me to JEE Advanced, where hopefully I will be abl;e to hold my own against you'll guys.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how did you'll evaluate the problem based on the magnetic force where the induction varied with the exponenetial constant

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Bro dont worry this time even 133 seems decent. I am not saying great but at least not down right atrocious. We will give our best in JEE Advanced. At least I know I would get a great job wherever I go because I am good in computers. I was depressed for a few days but came over it. How did you manage to score 133 though, even you got the paper late?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

No, actually I got really flustered just looking at some questions without even trying to calm down and understand, had I done that I would have definitely got around 180, Anyway hope my state ranking is good enough, besides I am expecting a rank less than 70,000 even with this score. So its not that bad

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Bro I am getting between 5K-7K as per Fiitjee. You should get in 15-20K range. Which state are you from?

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I am from Maharashtra and my rank is this only because my HSC percentage is 80%

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Same here HSC Board. You should still get 30K around. Do you have any reservation OBC/SC/ST? If Gen then you may get VJTI.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I am actually tryin for sies , if i dont do well in bits. Its too soon to say which state institute one can get with JEE Main score since this is the first year there is going to be admission only on the basis of JEE Main rank.

So I'll wait and see which colleges my state rank will give me. Fiungers crossed theyt are good ones

- 6 years, 10 months ago

If you are a south indian you are already into SIES. Fr. Agnel has a good rep in Mumbai/Navi-Mumbai. But if you did study/work hard it will be disappointing to get into a local college.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Dude, there is nothing wrong with local colleges, if you work hard eventually one might get all the benefits one from IIT might get, though it will take a longer while:), but putting efforts in the nest 4-5 years will definitely make one equal to any IITian. Besides with a 0.6% acceptance rate, in any given year, one is more likely to find oneself in a local college than a premier institute

- 6 years, 10 months ago

I will try for IIT though, but with the computer field I am already aware so I expect to be the top student of the class wherever I am. I have already learnt much of Web dev and progressing to learn more.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Guys...Can u give suggestions as to how to revise previous topics??? I have one year left and the topics are being covered at a really fast pace...such that I am unable to devote time to revise previous topics...So how do u it???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well from the starting( atleast now in 12th) you should mark the revision questions suggested( or your choice) which should consist of questions of a particular type or explaining a particular concept and then revise those questions.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Sure... Will do that... Any suggestion on how to revise organic chem...???

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Well u can make short notes consisting of all the important reactions and the same thing as above......You can also make short notes in maths like this which can also consist of your common mistakes in coaching tests!!!

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Okay....Do u know which book to refer for theory relating to organic chemistry??Mostly the mistake I make is that I don't read the question properly.....

- 6 years, 10 months ago

The idea with organic chemistry is that the variety of questions that can be formed is very large. But the common thread is the mechanism. The only way to crack organic chemistry is to have a deep understanding of mechanisms and the ability to apply to different reactions and different compounds behaving similarly. One must also understand that mechanisms and reagents and not like functions giving definite outputs for definite inputs, they rather change depending upon substrate and conditions.
As far as theory of organic chemistry is concerned, I would suggest to stick to your professor's notes and booklets. If you really want theory textbook, a lot of people go for Morrison-Boyd (for organic chemistry , in general) and for examination purposes, it is better if you practice questions of a large variety..

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Thanks for the advice...Point is that JKCH Sir has just started teaching us Reaction Mechanism....so I needed to know how to approach it. Does brilliant help in preparing ?? I was probably not clear in my previous question...but I meant to ask you how much u r expecting in boards....(I don't mean to sound too inquisitive) :D

- 6 years, 10 months ago

The way to approach Reaction Mechanism is to understand as to why certain reagents behave in certain specific manner with certain class of substrates. For example, a nucleophile will attack $\delta+$ center in a compound which I believe is effortless to reason. But what takes effort is to realize the feasibility of such an attack. The approach is thus to develop a sense of judgement as to which compound will attack or get attacked and where etc. through the study of four basic kinds of mechanisms. As far as JKCH Sir is concerned, he is really a good teacher and explains the finest nuances regarding reactions and mechanisms which would be beneficial for you in the examination. Unfortunately, Brilliant does not have a well developed and popular Chemistry section as of now. Nonetheless, you can use it as a platform to have your questions answered by the Chemistry lovers out there which are quite a lot of them. Well for boards I'm expecting around 95% or so.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

That's just amazing!!! With 95% in boards and 304 in mains, u r obviously getting a good rank...!!! The thing is that JKCH sir doesn't make us write notes....u r supposed to hear him and keep writing at the same time...making my writing totally illegible(I can't refer to that again)....so I write class notes in rough and fair it out at home....which is time consuming. If he has taught u....did u face the same problem?? If yes, how did u counter it?? And if not..any suggestion on how I should counter it?? :(

- 6 years, 10 months ago

You are from PACE? For us SCH taught organic and he is super good. Thanks to him and Solomons my organic is good. I worry about inorganic.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Yeah.....I am frm Pace(Borivali). We haven't started inorganic yet....so don't know anything about it. Btw, frm what I have heard u r supposed to keep memorizing stuff(exceptions!!) in inorganic, right??

- 6 years, 10 months ago

There is very little/ no logic for many reactions. This topic is what brings down my marks every damn time.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

It just seems like u r going to have to memorise everything :(

Firstly Tanya, JKCH taught us complete organic chemistry and generally he gave us time to note down everything that was important like the mechanism of reactions etc. though I have to agree it was quite often insufficient especially when a lot things regarding a reaction had to be noted down. I would strictly suggest you not to rewrite notes at home which would waste a lot of your time which you are short of. One of the obvious suggestions is to write fast. Secondly, I'm quite certain that no professor would expect the students to write for entire lecture while hearing him simultaneously, atleast not JKCH sir. So what you could try is that just write in short or outline what you need to note down, I mean the specific points while he is explaining(speaking) and then expand upon them when you have some time or rather whenever you get time. Be sure of memorizing and understanding the point correctly to avoid any error.

Well, Sudeep.... I think it was actually my fault... In the first 2-3 lectures of his my mood was probably a bit off or something(dunno for sure)...or it could just have been the fact that I find organic chem boring...which could have contributed to me writing in an illegible handwriting.. Today's lecture was pretty interesting and so I didn't have to rewrite the notes...though thank u for reverting back with the suggestion of noting down the important points and elaborating them later...I'll be sure to do that the next time...

Also...I'll be really grateful if u could explain the difference between a cyclic,reversible and irreversible process...

Thanks for the advice....4 different people having suggested 4 different books puts me in a big dilemma as to which book should i refer to... Give me a week so as to issue each one of them from our library and figure out which one I am comfortable with.... Again..Thanks!!!
