National Testing Agency (NTA) successfully conducted the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 session 4 shift 2 today, August 27, 2021, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. With this, Day 2 of the national-level entrance exam got concluded. Several coaching institutes have already released their answer keys online for the second shift. While these answer keys may differ from the official one (to be released later by NTA), they can still calculate their tentative scores. With these tentative scores, candidates can easily predict their chances of getting qualified for the JEE Advanced 2021.
While waiting for the official JEE Main 2021 session 4 answer keys, here’s a detailed analysis of Day 2 shift 2 exam –
According to shift 2 students, the Mathematics section was not too difficult to solve. However, the questions asked were lengthy to solve within the time limit of 3 hours. However, the Physics and chemistry sections were easy in terms of level of difficult. Thus, the overall paper was of easy to moderate level.
Much to the relief and surprise of candidates, the Physics section was considerably easy to solve compared to the remaining two sections. Another relief was that most questions in the Chemistry section were in the MCQ format. Integer-based questions were mostly asked from the Physical Chemistry syllabus. However, due to more calculations involved, candidates found the Chemistry section trickier. Inorganic questions were a saviour for most students as they were straight-forward and fact-based.
In terms of the Chemistry section, more weightage was given to the Organic portion compared to Inorganic and Physical syllabi. Usually, topics such as Polymer, Biomolecules and Chemistry in Everyday Life are given considerable importance in a JEE Main exam. As per students, several questions were asked from the Polymer chapter. However, questions from remaining two topics were also covered in the paper.
Usually, in case of Physics, topics such as Gravitation and Practical Physics are given considerable importance. In the second shift of August 27, 2021, more questions were asked based on Gravitation and Pulley Concept.
Apart from this, roughly 3-4 questions were asked from Modern Physics while 1 question was asked from the Alpha-beta concept in Semiconductors. Most students found the Physics section to be easy, covering easier topics and formulae from all chapters. Due to the straight-forward nature of questions, candidates could easily get extra time to solve other sections.
When it comes to the Mathematics section, Reasoning questions were predominantly asked in the second shift. Around 5-6 questions were lengthy, and 2-3 questions were tricky. However, candidates could solve around 10-12 questions easily.
Thus, overall, the paper was only challenging in terms of Mathematics and Physical Chemistry. The remaining sections, if solved correctly, can easily help candidates get a good rank in the JEE Main 2021 examination.
