JEE Mains Horror Show!

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?

NOTE-

This Note is for students who had given their exam today. Please share your views and expected score and ranking!

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. Jatin Yadav · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Jatin Yadav 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 \(\frac{4T}{R}\). Karthik Kannan · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Karthik Kannan 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 :) Jatin Yadav · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Pranav Arora 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. Anish Puthuraya · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Anish Puthuraya 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.

Log in to reply

@Anish Puthuraya 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. Sudeep Salgia · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Bala Tweakbytes 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. Anish Puthuraya · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Anish Puthuraya 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. :( Sudeep Salgia · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Sudeep Salgia 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. Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Sudeep Salgia 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??? Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 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.

@Bala Tweakbytes I really got pissed too when I realized that though they had given the paper late they were intending to collect on time.

@Aabhas Mathur 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..... Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Tanya Gupta 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.. Sudeep Salgia · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Sudeep Salgia 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 Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Tanya Gupta 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. Sudeep Salgia · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Sudeep Salgia 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?? :( Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Bala Tweakbytes 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?? Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Tanya Gupta There is very little/ no logic for many reactions. This topic is what brings down my marks every damn time. Anish Puthuraya · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Anish Puthuraya It just seems like u r going to have to memorise everything :( Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Tanya Gupta 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. Sudeep Salgia · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Sudeep Salgia Also...I'll be really grateful if u could explain the difference between a cyclic,reversible and irreversible process... Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Sudeep Salgia 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...

@Tanya Gupta Do this book- Organic Chemistry Part I and II by KS VERMA , Cengage Publications. Really good! Avineil Jain · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Avineil Jain 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!!! Tanya Gupta · 3 years, 5 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 Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Calvin David 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? Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Bala Tweakbytes 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 Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Calvin David Bro I am getting between 5K-7K as per Fiitjee. You should get in 15-20K range. Which state are you from? Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Bala Tweakbytes I am from Maharashtra and my rank is this only because my HSC percentage is 80% Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Calvin David 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. Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Bala Tweakbytes 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 Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Calvin David 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. Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

@Bala Tweakbytes 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 Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Calvin David 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. Bala Tweakbytes · 3 years, 5 months ago

I am getting a total of 221 marks,and i think that's pretty awful,considering what all you people have scored. Archit Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Archit Gupta Dude, your score is not that bad, besides there is another big exam coming up which you will definitely score better in. Calvin David · 3 years, 5 months ago

@Calvin David Yeah I know,but scoring around 250-300 marks can definitely boost confidence levels for the next exam as well! Archit Gupta · 3 years, 5 months ago
