January 04, 2015: The engineering aspirants faced a tough Physics paper and Easy Chemistry and Mathematics paper in pen & paper based JEE Main 2015. While the standard of Physics paper was raised higher, Chemistry and Mathematics remained the same compared to last year’s paper. In this paper, an average student can score up to 180-200 marks, while a student who has prepared really well can score between 310-340 marks.
Physics: Thought-provoking paper.
Though a student is thorough with NCERT book, it would not be sufficient to score good marks. Students had to apply concepts to a few problems and we can name it as a thought provoking physics question paper. There was more number of graph based questions which is a bit unique in this year’s physics paper. The paper was moderately difficult. There were 34% of easy level questions, 40% of moderate level questions and 46% of difficult level questions. There were no out of syllabus questions and no errors too. An average student can score between 40-56 marks.
Chemistry: Easy to score!
The Chemistry paper was easy and direct. There were 70% of easy level questions, 20% of moderate level questions and only 10% of difficult level questions. An average student can score between 60-70 marks. There were no out of syllabus questions. The standard has been the same compared to last year’s.
Mathematics: Students can solve it with ease!
The Mathematics paper was easy. Students need not struggle to solve these problems, given the fact that they are well prepared. There were 45% of easy level questions, 40% of moderate level questions and 15% of difficult level questions. An average student can score between 50-60 marks. With no errors in the paper, the level of difficulty has been maintained the same compared to last year’s paper.
Samitha Hebbar, student of Deeksha Network from Hubli said, “The paper was pretty good. Chemistry was direct and easy. It did not consume a lot of time. But, Physics and Mathematics needed a lot more preparation as we had to apply short-cuts to solve few questions.”
Vishal Naik, student of Deeksha Network from Bangalore said, “The paper seemed a little difficult for me. Physics and Mathematics was pretty tough and I felt it was lengthy. Chemistry was easy and question banks helped me a lot”.
Kingfley, student of Deeksha Network from Hubli said, “The paper was moderate. Physics and Maths took a long time to complete it. Chemistry was easy and direct. Question bank helped me a lot. I am expecting somewhere around 170 to 180 marks.”
Pramod, student of Deeksha Network said, “It was a good paper. Physics was a little tough and plenty of numerical problems. Chemistry and Mathematics was easy for me.”
