JEE Main 2019 Question Paper 1

JEE Main 2019 Question paper 1 is basically set for students looking to pursue B.E. and B.Tech courses. After reviewing the question, our experts have suggested that the overall difficulty of the paper was moderate and had evenly balanced marking scheme for the subjects such as maths, physics and chemistry. However, as per the feedbacks physics was the most difficult section while maths was moderate and chemistry was fairly easy to solve.

Subject Difficulty Scale
Physics Was difficult with tricky questions.
Maths Was moderate to difficult with the majority of the questions based on the topic of integration.
Chemistry Comparatively easy and scoring.

Well, will look at the subject wise question below.

JEE Main 2019 Question Paper Physics Section

Physics, as usual, was the toughest section in JEE Main 2019 paper with tricky questions that further required more logical and reasoning skills. The section was allotted a total of 30 marks where 13 questions were set from electromagnetism, 8 from mechanics 2 from modern physics, 3 from optics, 3 from thermodynamics,1 from SHM and Waves. In this paper, 10 questions were quite easy, 17 were moderate and 3 questions were difficult.

JEE Main 2019 Question Paper Maths Section

The questions that were asked in the mathematics section was surprisingly on a moderate level. Candidates who appeared for the exam stated that the questions involved a few calculations which took a bit longer time to solve and attempt all the questions. There were 9 questions from algebra, 8 from coordinate geometry, 9 from calculus and 4 were based on probability, mathematical reasoning and statistics. Overall, 13 questions were fairly easy, 13 were on a moderate level and 4 questions were difficult.

JEE Main 2019 Question Paper Chemistry Section

Chemistry section was the easiest and scoring section among all the three sections. There was equal weightage given to inorganic, physical and organic chemistry. However, class 12 was given more importance as 17 questions were asked while 13 questions were asked from class 11 syllabus. There were 12 questions from physical chemistry, 10 from organic chemistry and 8 from inorganic chemistry. Out of these, 11 questions quite easy, 16 on a moderate level and 3 required a bit of thinking but was answerable. Students who have performed well in this section will surely have a greater chance to excel and advance forward.

JEE Main 2019 Paper 2 Analysis

In paper 2 the exam was conducted both in a computer-based mode as well as pen and paper-based mode. Mathematics and General Aptitude test was conducted online whereas the drawing test was conducted in offline mode.

Maths Section:

The question in the mathematics section was difficult. Majority of the questions were based on the topic of calculus. Interestingly, the questions that appeared in the April paper did not bear any similarity to the questions that were asked in the January session.

General Aptitude Section:

General Aptitude section consisted of tricky questions. There were questions based on topics such as identifying 3D objects and shapes. There were general knowledge questions as well and candidates were asked details about the location of places which had architectural importance. They were also asked the full form of important words and more. There was a total of fifty questions which carried four marks each.

Drawing Section:

As for the drawing section it consisted of easy questions. However, students were of the opinion that the questions were lengthy and required more time to solve them. There were 3 questions which carried a total of seventy marks. The questions were basically designed to test the creativity and drawing skills of the students.
