JEE Main 2019 Question Paper Analysis

The first session of JEE Main 2019 successfully concluded in the month of January. The second session is yet to be conducted in the month of April. While aspirants are looking forward to the second exam, our subject experts have reviewed and provided in-depth analysis of the JEE Main 2019 Question papers. Feedbacks from the candidates have also been taken into account.

Let us understand how the papers were set, including the difficulty level, number of questions from each subject as well as the weightage of marks.

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.

Expectations from JEE Main 2019 April Exam

The second shift of JEE Main 2019 is going to be held in the month of April exam and will mainly begin on the 7th. However, the exam should be pretty much similar to the January session with similar question pattern with few changes here and there. There are chances that that new papers that will be set could be a bit longer while the weightage of marks and the distribution of the questions may vary between class 11 and 12.

As for the sections, maths could again be the lengthiest but on a moderate difficulty level. Physics section should be from moderate to a difficult level as the question could be tricky and we can’t say anything about the calculations based questions as it could be anything. The chemistry section should again be the easiest with more of theory-based questions. Students with a good base in the subject should be able to easily solve all the questions and score higher marks.
