Overall analysis of the Paper

The questions of physics and chemistry were easy and most of the questions were from the concepts which are discussed in NCERT textbook but mathematics was typical for students as questions were lengthy and calculative enough to confuse the students, he said


Level of difficulty and Comparisons with previous year exams

He also told us that there has been a lot of similarities between paper pattern and syllabus distribution from the previous years. JEE Main, 2017 was overall moderate in difficulty level but it was lengthy. The class 12th syllabus was given slightly more weightage this year than the previous year.

He even stated that many of the questions in the paper were straight forward which can answer by sincere students who have prepared in disciplined manner. But few vwere very tricky and can prove to be crucial in deciding toppers.


Which subject and topic were tough and easy?

  2. In physics, maximum weightage was modern physics with weightage of 24 marks and 5 questions being asked.
  3. 11questions from mechanics, 3 from thermodynamics and KTG, and 2 were from optics and 6 from modern and nuclear physics
  4. Out of all 30 questions, 14 questions were average and 10 were very easy.



  1. Chemistry was considered the easiest of all three papers, with a difficulty level similar to last year and most questions asked, were from NCERT.
  2. The syllabus was also almost divided fairly with 8 questions from organic chemistry 11 from inorganic and 11 from physical.
  3. A major portion of the paper was of theoretical type.



  1. Mathematics was considered by most to be the most difficult of the three subjects, purely due to its lengthiness, despite being comparatively easier than last year.
  2. 15 questions were from algebra, 6 from calculus, 3 from vectors and 3 from conic section
  3. Questions from both coordinate geometry and differential calculus were challenging and student found it difficult to attempt.
