  • Mathematics was time consuming and calculation intensive.
  • Physics was the toughest among all the 3 sections as few questions were out of syllabus.
  • In Chemistry section, many questions were not asked from some important chapters, which made it bit unpredictable.
  • Many questions in Chemistry were asked from chapters, which were not very significant or were less important.
  • In Mathematics, questions from series were very lengthy and time consuming.
  • Physics had less number of easier question and more of difficult ones.
  • In comparison with last year, the paper was a bit difficult, atleast the Physics section. Maths turned out to be time-consuming.
  • In Mathematics, approx 50% questions were from class 11 and remaining 50% from class 12.

Students who would have practiced the previous years' JEE papers had an edge as many questions were repeated in JEE Main 2018. IT WAS A MIX OF THEORY AND CALCULATIVE BASED QUESTIONS.

Detailed JEE Main Exam Analysis 2018 Paper 2

The difficulty level of the paper was higher as compared to last year .

1. Aptitude: 50 Q X 4 M = 200 M

  • Time-consuming but doable questions 
  • Someone who would have done good preparation would have had good exposure and familiarity with questions and would have been able to attempt more number of questions with higher accuracy in less time.
  • Decent attempts - 30 at an accuracy of 90% will result in 27 correct answers, and will fetch 27*4 = 108 marks, which is a very good score. 

2. Maths: 30 Q X 4M = 120 M

  • This was the toughest section and it required deep understanding of fundamentals and its application.
  • It was tricky and more difficult as compared to last year.
  • Decent attempts - 18 at an accuracy of 90% will result in 27 correct answers, and will fetch 14*4 = 56 marks, which is a very good score. 

3. Drawing: 2 Questions

  • Question 1 (Part A -  20 Marks & Part B - 20 marks) 
  • Question 2 (one question of 30 marks) 
  • Attempt of either question 1 or question 2 within a time frame of 30 minutes will fetch a score of 25 plus, which is a decent score in this section...
  • Very time consuming and required lot of practice and precision, understanding of 2 dimension and 3 dimension drawings.

Around 12 lakh engineering aspirants are appearing for the JEE Mains 2018 across various centres in India. While some students appeared for the offline version of JEE Mains exam, some will take the online version of JEE Mains exam on April 15 and 16, 2018. As soon as the exam is conducted, you will be able to check you estimated rank by using our JEE 2018 Rank Predictor.

JEE Mains, short for Joint Entrance Examination Mains, is conducted by the CBSE to select students for admission to NITs, IIITs, GFTI and some self-financed technical institutes. Its score is also used to shortlist students for taking the JEE (Advanced) exam. The score of JEE (Advanced) is further used for admission into IITs. JEE (Mains) and JEE (Advanced) are known to be the most prestigious engineering exams in India. Out of the 12 lakh students who will appear for JEE (Mains), only 2.2 lakh candidates will become eligible for taking the JEE Advanced exam.

JEE Main 2017 Exam Analysis

JEE Main 2017 was conducted on April 2 in offline mode for two slots – Paper I and Paper II. Paper I was conducted from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm for B.E/B.Tech courses while Paper II was held from 2 pm to 5 pm for B.Arch/B.Planning programmes.

A total of 90 questions were asked in the JEE Main 2017 paper. The paper was divided into Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics into three parts with 30 questions in each part. Each question carried 4 marks.

For every incorrect answer, there was a negative marking 1/4 marks of total marks. On the other, there was no penalty for leaving a question unanswered. Now, you make take a look at the detailed JEE Main 2017 analysis. In 2017, 11,98,989 engineering aspirants had registered for the exam. Each subject carried 30 questions with 120 marks allocated every section. It means students had a maximum of 360 marks to score.

As far as the analysis of JEE Main 2017 is concerned, the paper turned out to be quite similar in pattern to JEE Main 2016, Overall, the paper was easier in comparison with the JEE Main conducted in 2016.

In terms of section-wise difficulty level...

Mathematics seemed relatively tougher than last year. Most of the questions were lengthy, thus, increasing the chances of making mistakes. This section had18 questions from the 12th class syllabus and 12 from the 11th class syllabus. There were 3 questions of Probability which was quite high.

Physics, on the other hand, turned out to be relatively simpler in comparison with last year. While 17 questions were from the 12th class syllabus, 13 questions were from the 11th class syllabus. Majority of the questions asked in Physics paper were from topics generally covered for the JEE preparation. Topics like Mechanical Waves and Sound and Uniform Circular Motion, which are considered quite important, were completely missing. Some questions required calculations but they were easy.

Of all the three subjects, Chemistry was the simplest. From class XII syllabus, 18 questions were asked and 12 questions were asked from class XI syllabus. The paper covered all the topics and looked more balanced as compared to other subjects. The paper was more conceptual as compared to previous year's exam.

According to experts, a student should have done Physics and Chemistry quickly and used the saved time for Mathematics in order to score well in the paper.

The section-wise difficulty level of the paper is as follows:

Subjects Difficult Moderate Easy
Physics 2 17 11
Chemistry 3 9 18
Mathematics 7 16 7
Total 12 42 12

JEE Main 2019 Inter–Se Merit List

While NTA will release the JEE Main 2019 Result determining the marks of the candidates scored in the examination, they will also have to look after the candidates scoring same marks in JEE Main 2019. This is identified when the rank list of the passed candidates is prepared. The list for Paper 1 (B.Tech and B.E) and Paper 2 (B.Arch and B.Planning) will be prepared separately and then if the score of two or more candidates is same, an inter-se merit list will be determined based on parameters defined by the exam conducting authority. Candidates must also know that these parameters will be different for both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of JEE Main 2019. Let’s check out the inter-se merit list factors planned out for the candidates with the same score in JEE Main 2019.

Paper 1 (B.Tech and B.E)

  • The first parameter will be the marks scored in the Mathematics section of the paper. Candidate with a higher score in Mathematics will be ranked up in the list.

  • If there is a tie again, then, the marks of the Physics section will be considered as a tiebreaker. Higher the marks in Physics, higher will be the rank of the candidate.

  • In case if the candidates manage to match up all the marks, then the board will then consider the number of positive and negative marks obtained by the candidates. The one with the higher positive marks or absolute value will rank up then the other with less number of positive marks.

  • If this parameter also fails, then both the candidates will be awarded the same rank in the inter-se merit list.

Paper 2 (B.Arch and B.Planning)

  • First consideration will be the marks scored by the comparing candidates in the Aptitude Section of Paper 2. Test taker scoring higher marks in Aptitude section will be marked up in the inter-se merit list.

  • If this determinant fails to clarify the tie, then the marks of the Drawing section will be considered and the one scoring more in this section will be ranked up in the list.

  • The ratio of the positive and negative marks will be the third consideration in case the top two factors fall to be the same. The one with higher absolute value will be ranked up in the inter-se merit list.

  • If all of the above parameters are same, then both the candidates will be given equal rank on the list.

Post JEE Main 2019 Result Declaration

After the JEE Main 2019 Result Declaration, National Testing Agency (NTA) will release the cut-off list for the candidates who have cleared the examination. This list will help candidates to identify their position in the exam conducted. It will also help them to take admission in the recognised engineering institution of India. Candidates can then check the marks and compare their ranks released by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA). Other than these ranks and cut-offs, the participating colleges of JEE Main 2019 will also release cut-off lists for the purpose of admission into their various engineering courses. Once the list of candidates are finalized, the JEE Main 2019 Counselling Process followed by the admission process will start.

JEE Main 2019 Counselling Process

The Joint Seat Allocation Authority or JoSAA is responsible for the counselling process and seat allotment for JEE Main candidates. The seat allotment process is based on AIR (All India Ranks).

The candidates have to make their choices online for branches/programmes and institutes within the stipulated time. The verification of documents is done at the time of counselling/admission. The purpose is to verify a variety of records related to identification, age, qualifying examination, category, state of eligibility of the candidate. If a candidate fails to produce any of the authentic documents, their candidature is not considered valid for admission. 

SC, ST, OBC and PwD candidates have to produce original certificate issued by the competent authority at the time of counselling. All the participating institutes that do not use the centralised counselling procedure usually prepare their own ranking based on the performance in JEE (Mains) and other criteria.

There are 3 counselling processes for JEE Main 15% All India Quota seats:

  • Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) manages combined counselling and seat allotment procedure for all the IITs (short for Indian Institutes of Technology), IIITs, (short for Indian Institutes of Information Technology) NITs (short for National Institutes of Technology) and other central Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs).
  • CSAB SFTI is conducted for admission in Self-Funded Technical Institutes.
  • CSAB NEUT is conducted for seats reserved in AICTE approved Institutes in India that are not covered under CSAB for the North Eastern States & Union Territories (NEUT).

JEE Main 2019 Counselling and Allotment of Seats

The Counselling Process of JEE Main 2019 has been divided into 6 stages defining the steps that must be followed by the candidates in order to clear the counselling process successfully. No candidate can skip these stages and stand for the confirmation of the admission in their desired institution. Let’s look at the steps of counselling procedures in details.

Registration Process

The first step towards a successful JEE Main 2019 Counselling Process is to get the online registration done. For this, the candidates can register themselves on the official website of Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) or Self-Funded Technical Institutes or AICTE approved Institutes respectively, as per the preferences of the candidates. Credentials asked by the concerned site are to be filled in by the candidates and submit it in order to register for the counselling and seat allotment procedure. It is very important for candidates to enter correct information before confirming registration for the counselling process.

Online Filling and Locking of the Choices

Candidates in this step needs to search for the desired engineering college and fill in their choices in the form given on the official website of the concerned authority. The choices are to be filled according to the order given for the colleges and engineering programmes. Once all the choices are filled, candidates must lock and submit their choices. It is very important to lock the choices and preferences before the last date ends. Based on the choices made by the candidates, seats of the colleges will be locked for them. Candidates must also know that this process can be repeated after the completion of one round of the counselling process after the first round of counselling process is over.

Allotment of Seats

It is very important for the aspirants of JEE Main 2019 to know that the seats will be allotted based on the availability of the seats in the concerned institution. The choices filled in and locked by the candidates will be kept in consideration while allotting seats to them. Before making the final seat allocation, two rounds of mock allotment will be conducted for the eligible candidates. Mock Rounds will help candidates in understanding the seat allotment procedure in detail and will also allow them to make changes if they wish to, before the counselling round starts.

Acceptance of Seats and Payment of Fee

Once the Seat Allotment process is over, JEE Main 2019 Counselling aspirants can proceed further for payment stage. For this candidates will have to choose among the options to make a confirmation of the stage they want to enter after the completion of the Seat Allotment Process. These categories are – Freeze, Slide, Float and Withdraw. All these categories symbolize different meaning for the seat allocation and payment mode. To Freeze is to mark that the candidates do not want to make any changes in the seat allotted to them and want to proceed with the same. If a candidate selects Slide then it means that the candidate does not wish to change the seat but wants to make an upgradation in the course he/she has selected. Selecting Float section means to keep the allotted seat and request for an upgradation of the seat to the concerned authority assigned for the admission process. Lastly, the Withdraw section of the Seat Acceptance Procedure defines that the candidates who want withdraw their allotted seats can do so before the final seat allotment procedure is done. The concerned authority is to be informed by the candidates opting for withdrawal procedure.

After the confirming any of the above-mentioned section and doing the needful actions candidates will be asked to make the fee payment. The fee payment will confirm their candidature and will forward them for the final round of admission process. To make the payment, candidates can opt for Net Banking or E-Challan Powered by State Bank of India.

JEE Main 2019 Cut-off

The qualifying cut-off for JEE Main 2019 will be announced soon after the declaration of JEE Main Result 2019 for January Session (first attempt) on 31st January 2019. Also, the cut-off for JEE Main 2019 will be released separately for each session – January, and April.  Based on the JEE Main cut-off 2019, candidates will be able to apply for admission to the NITs, IIITs, IIITM & IIITDM and other Central Government/State Government Funded Institutions.  With the announcement of JEE Main Result and AIR (short for All India Rank), authorities will also publish the list of qualified candidates eligible for taking JEE Advanced 2019.

Candidates must secure a rank or cut-off, which is above the closing rank, in order to get admission in the NITs, IIITs, IIITM & IIITDM and other Central Government/State Government Funded Institutions. Having a lower rank than the cut-off of JEE Main 2019 (for a particular programme/institute) means the candidate will not be eligible for admission.

The JEE Main cut-off 2019 will be released category-wise, branch-wise and institution-wise. The cut-offs will vary from candidate to candidate as per the institution/course/category. Candidates must also know that the Cut-Off of JEE Main 2019 has been categorised under two different types. These two distinctive categories are Qualifying Cut-Off and Admission Cut-Off. It is important for candidates to know about these two cut-offs as it will help them in understanding the whole cut-off system in a clear and better way, highlighting the usage of these two cut-offs.

Qualifying Cut–Off: National Testing Agency (NTA) announces and publishes this cut-off to start a new session. Mainly the qualifying cut-off list is used to extract the candidates eligible for JEE Advance. Those who want to sit for the JEE Advance will have to mark their place in this list and achieve the qualifying marks. Candidates will be able to check this cut-off list on the official website of NTA and can download it for future references. It is very important for aspirants to know that the Qualifying Cut-Off list is not the list that can be used for the purpose of admission in the JEE Main Participating Colleges.

Admission Cut–Off: Admission Cut-Off is the list published by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) to help candidates to take admission in the participating colleges of JEE Main 2019. The candidates who successfully get their names placed in this cut-off list will become eligible to proceed with the admission process of any of the selected participating colleges of JEE Main 2019. Candidates can find the Admission Cut-Off list on the official website of JoSAA. They can download the list and keep it for future references. The list will also help candidates to see the colleges with which they proceed further in the admission process. In order to make a remarkable place in any of these list candidates need to clear the JEE Main 2019 with explicit marks.

For now, candidates may go through cut-offs of previous years to get an idea about the previous trends. Through the JEE Main cut-offs of previous years, the candidates will also understand what score they would need to qualify the entrance examination.
