IITs have always had a knack of setting unexpected and surprising question papers. By not revealing the exam pattern in brochure, like other conventional engineering entrance exams, they at least keep students wondering about what they may meet in the exam hall.
As 21st May 2017 came and elapsed, the JEE Advanced 2017 took place across centers in India. The question paper pattern was fresh, but question types remained similar to that of last year.
There were single answer correct, multiple answer correct, integer answer type questions. Of course the sequence of type of questions (divided as per sections) was different from last year. But any student who had a look at old JEE Advanced or IIT JEE question papers was prepared for it.
Now that the exam is over various coaching institutes have published JEE Advanced 2017 Answer Keys. They have also published question papers. Aspirants of IIT JEE (Adv) can go through set-wise answer keys.
It will be observed that answer key by one coaching center may differ from that of another. In other words there are variations in some answers of various educational institutes. In such a scenario one must exercise best judgment and decide which answer key to refer. A compilation of all answer keys, question papers, and even solutions can be found here in one place.
Official answer keys will be available on 4th June. Exactly one week after that JEE Advanced 2017 Result will be declared on 11th June.
With the answer key in hand, student can see which answers they marked correctly, and which not. Then using marking scheme, expected marks can be arrived at. So indirectly, JEE Advanced 2017 Answer Key helps in calculating marks of exam apart from just conveying correct answers.
