JEE Main 2019 Shift 1 exam ends that was scheduled for April 12, 2019. After the exam as per the initial student analysis, it came up that the overall difficulty level of the exam was moderate. The shift 2 exam will begin at 2:30 PM and end at 5:30 PM. In the overall paper, the weightage of class 12 questions were more. From the January session, no questions were repeated in the April attempt.
Following trend today, Physics is again the most difficult section. There were equal weightages of questions from all the chapters. there were many questions from Optics in this shift too. There were a few questions from electrostatics, thermodynamics, semiconductors, 2D too. There were questions from the photoelectric effect. Practical based questions related to conversion galvanometer into the voltmeter were asked. There were questions based on mirror formula and wave optics.
There were questions from current electricity and magnetic effect. In physics, maximum questions were from class 11 and there were many questions thermodynamics and mechanics, that were comparatively much difficult.
Mathematics this time came up with lengthy questions. the questions were a bit tricky and took a lot of time slove. The questions from calculus and coordinate geometry were easy. However, there were difficult questions from Algebra. There were many questions asked from Integration. There were no questions from probability, permutation, and combination in this shift. Major questions were from AY, Binomial Theorem and Sequences and series,
Chemistry, as usual, came up with basic and direct questions. There were questions from froth floatation. there were balanced questions from organic and inorganic. The candidates who had prepared from NCERT only too can crack the paper easily. There were a few questions from Equilibrium.
In this shift too, the candidates have said that the overall difficulty level of the paper was easier as compared to the January attempt. This is because the candidates say that they were better prepared this time as they have given their boards. However many felt that the difficulty level was the same as the paper in both the attempts.
As the exam ends today, candidates can now look forward to the declaration of the result by April 30, 2019, for paper 1 and for paper 2 the result will be out by May 15, 2019.
However, before the declaration of the result, the candidates can check their raw scores based on the official answer key that is expected by April 15, 2019. In the January session, NTA has released the official answer key 3 days after the exam was over. Therefore in this attempt too, we can expect NTA to upload the answer keys by April 15, 2019, 3 days after the exam is over.
Similarly one can expect the uploading of question paper and response sheet by April 14, 2019, by NTA. Response sheet, question paper and answer keys will be all available under the login of the candidates at jeemain.nic.in.
The candidates can get an idea of their raw scores using the answer keys. However, note that in the result that will be declared by NTA. the percentile scores of the candidates will be made available for all the 3 sections separately and the overall percentile score of the exam.
In addition to the result, the candidates will also get their All India Ranks this time on their scorecard. the AIR will be based on the best percentile score of the candidates who have given both the attempts. For all the candidates who have attempted anyone attempt, will have their AIR based on the percentile of that attempt.
NTA is going to prepare the AIR that will be based on the candidate’s percentile scores and not the raw scores. However, the experts have analyzed the cutoffs based on the raw marks of the candidates and as per their analysis, this time the cutoff might shoot up. The expected range of the cutoff for the general category is 80 – 85 marks.
