Another day of JEE Main 2021 ends. The second shift of JEE Main 26 Feb exam was easy to moderate in difficulty level. Maths section was moderate but lengthy. This time, Physics was also easy, however, some students said that few questions in the section were a bit tricky and moderate in level of difficult. Chemistry paper was also easy in this session.
In physics, the questions were very conceptual. In physics, candidates said that many questions came from modern physics. Topics in maths that were the highlight of the paper were algebra, integral calculus, probability. Lastly, chemistry had many questions from organic and inorganic chemistry. There were very few questions from physical chemistry.
Now only one day is left for JEE Main to conclude. The candidates will now apply for JEE Main 2021 March session, which is from March 15 to 18, 2021. The candidates will be able to apply for the March session after the declaration of the February session result.

As for the cut off, many students have reported a good attempt of about 40 to 50 questions with 85 per cent accuracy.
The topics that were asked in shift 1 today were LCR circuits, electrostatics, Modern physics, DC circuits, motion, ray optics, rotation, thermodynamics, SHM, waves, gravitation, vernier caliper in Physics. Maths sections had probability, coordinate geometry, 3D and vector, Pv&C, calculus, trigonometry, quadratic, differential equation, mathematical reasoning, properties of a triangle. In chemistry, questions were asked from the organic basic mechanism, aldehyde ketone, polymer, S block elements, Thermo, equilibrium
There has been a turn of events this year. Until last year the general analysis of the paper used to be that physics is the most difficult section, maths moderate and lengthy and chemistry used to be the easiest. However, this year physics is seen to be the easiest of all 3 sections. Maths is the toughest and Chemistry remains to be easy. This is as per the paper 1 analysis on February 24 and 25, 2021 as per the students.
This year there has been a change in the exam pattern. While the number of questions asked in each subject will go up to 30 each, students still have to attempt 25 questions per section. There are 20 MCQs in each section and 10 Numericals. While all the MCQs are compulsory, candidates will have the option to do any 5 out of the 10 numericals. The total mars of the exam is 300.
The JEE (Main) –2021 for February (Session 1) is being held from February 23 to 26,2021 in which a total of 661776 candidates have registered. Out of this, 652627 candidates will appear for Paper 1 (B.E./B.Tech.)and 63065 candidates will appear for Paper 2A and Paper 2B(B.Arch. & B.Planning).
