JEE Main 2021 concludes with the final shift of the exam, ending today at 6 PM. The last shift of the February session was as per the expectations, as per the students and the paper was overall easy. As expected, the most difficult section was maths and it was lengthy too. Physics was easy to moderate, whereas, chemistry was the easiest section.
Questions mostly asked in the maths section were from calculus, integration and differentiation, vector, 3D, etc. In physics, most of the questions were from the class 12 syllabus. In chemistry, candidates have to face questions from organic chemistry. The questions from physical chemistry were mostly asked in the numerical section.
With this the overall analysis of the JEE Main 2021 Feb exam, as per the students, is that the exam was easy to moderate in all the shifts. This year surprisingly, maths was the toughest section. Physics and chemistry were easy as per the students.
Talking about the cutoff marks, as per the experts, students may need a raw score of 130+ to qualify for the JEE Advanced 2021 examination. The cut-off is likely to be around 92 percentile score. This number may change. In 2019, the raw score for the 90 percentile was in the range of 80-90. In 2020, the ranks had shifted further as more students scored above 200.
As per the previous year JEE Main exam, 99 percentile started at 151 marks. However, this year the exam pattern, total marks and questions has changes a bit. Hence, it is difficult to predict exact cut off for the exam.
