NCHMCT JEE 2021 Exam Analysis 

Last year, NCHMCT JEE was conducted in online mode where students had to answer 200 questions, each carrying 4 marks. The Numerical Ability & Quantitative Aptitude section was the most challenging of the 5 sections for the majority of students. The rest were moderately easy. Most students stated that they could answer around 160-180 questions accurately with ease. Thus, as per the analysis, the overall difficulty level of the NCHMCT JEE 2021 exam was easy to moderate. 

Students also shared having a smooth, glitch-free online test experience. However, only a few faced minor inconveniences, like screen freezing and blacking out, server error, login time expiration, and similar problems while appearing for NCHMCT JEE online exam. There were mixed reactions from the candidates who appear for the NCHMCT JEE exam last year.
