The Engineering entrance exam for admission to Indian Institute of Technology, National Institute of Technology & ISB Dhanbad, known as IIT JEE Mains 2016, was conducted in two parts, all over the country in the offline mode. While Paper 1 was for those students who were interested in doing their B. Tech or engineering course, Paper 2 was for those who were interested in a Bachelor of Architecture degree. Around 10,632 applicants appeared for Paper 1 of JEE Mains at 20 examination centres in the morning shift in Kota while 1,099 appeared for Paper 2 in the afternoon shift at two examination centres. The two centres were Lawrence and Mayo Public School and Rajasthan Technical University, Kota.
Heaving a sigh of relief, one of the students, who wrote the exam, said, "It was definitely easier compared to Paper 1 held in the morning shift. The paper had an Aptitude Test, Logical Reasoning, Drawing and Planning as its components. The Mathematics section was relatively difficult in Paper 2 than other components."
Another candidate who appeared in both the papers today, said, "Paper 2 was easier than Paper 1 but Mathematics section was tough," adding, "The drawing component in the paper focused on bringing out the creativity of the candidate."
