JEE Advanced 2016 Analysis
The question paper was balanced and was based on CBSE syllabus of Class XI and XII. Many of the questions were conceptual which needed analytical skills to solve.
- Physics section had a blend of easy, medium and difficult level questions. This section was conceptual and tight. Some of the questions involved lengthy calculations.
Students should prepare well Electromagnetism, Kinematics, Modern Physics and Optics for JEE Advanced 2017. Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma would be a good textbook for these topics.
- Chemistry was relatively easier in comparison with Physics and Mathematics. This section had more medium level questions. Few questions were tricky, but students who were strong with fundamentals could easily solve the questions in Chemistry section. The majority of the questions from organic chemistry were conceptual and required a detailed knowledge of named reactions.
JEE Advance 2017 is expected to have questions on the similar pattern. Candidates should pay special attention to the named reactions in organic chemistry, mole concept and titrations. For inorganic chemistry, a thorough study of NCERT textbooks would be sufficient.
- Regarding difficulty, Mathematics and Physics were necks to neck. Mathematics section was complicated and bit lengthy rather than difficult. So, candidates who knew the shortcuts for various problems would have worked well. There were no ambiguous questions. Questions from coordinate geometry, vectors and 3-D geometry were relatively simple compared to questions from probability and integral calculus.
Students can expect medium to moderately difficult questions in JEE Advanced 2017 in the mathematics section. Proper practice and coverage of the syllabus are important. Algebra is generally on the difficult side, practising problems from the book Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight would help a lot. Calculus and Coordinate too require regular practice as questions from these topics are frequently asked.
