JEE Main 2018 Paper Pattern

The JEE Main 2018 exam was a three-hour long exam. The offline exam was held between 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at various centres across the country. The online exam will be held on the 15th and 16th of April, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

The offline exam had a total of 90 questions worth 4 marks each. It consisted of 3 sections – Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Each section had equal weightage, i.e. each section consisted of 30 questions worth 120 marks. All questions were objective, multiple choice questions. Answering a question correctly fetches you 4 marks. JEE has negative marking, so a wrong answer results in a deduction of 1 mark. Questions that have not been attempted do not face negative marking.

What did our experts think about JEE Main 2018?

In terms of difficulty level, this year’s paper was similar to the last two years’ papers. According to our experts, the paper was moderately easy. A student should not have had much trouble completing the paper as well. They found similarities between the weightage of marks in this paper and the 12th standard syllabus.

Physics

Surprisingly, Physics was the toughest paper amongst the three. The questions were a mix of theory-based and calculative. This section was not lengthy. There were 17 questions asked from the 12th standard syllabus and 13 questions from the 11th standard syllabus. This section had 4 difficult questions, 20 moderate questions and 6 easy questions.

Initial assessment suspects none of the options of Q.6 Set B was correct. This was the question based on Pulley where minimum mass was required.

This is a breakup of chapters which had the toughest and easiest questions:

Tough Questions Easy questions (11th standard) Easy questions (12th standard)
Capacitors
Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation
Electromagnetic Waves
Electrostatics
Kinematics
Measurement and Errors
Electromagnetic Induction
Electronic Devices
Magnetic Effect of Current and Magnetism

This is the breakup of marks between different topics of the Physics section:

Topic Marks Allotted
Mechanics 44
Electrodynamics 48
Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory 8
Optics and Wave Optics 8
Modern Physics and Nuclear Physics 12

This distribution of marks ensured that the overall paper was moderately easy.

Chemistry

Chemistry was moderately easy amongst the three. The questions were a mix of theory and calculations, which ensured that students saved time for the other two sections. This section was lengthy in comparison to the other sections. There were 14 questions asked from the 12th standard syllabus and 16 questions from the 11th standard syllabus. This section had 3 difficult questions, 17 moderate questions, and 10 easy questions. Initial assessment suspects students may find 2 options of Q.63 Set B could be correct, however, we think the answer should be option 1. This was a question of Alcohol phenol and ether, on a reaction of Phenol

This is a breakup of chapters which had the toughest and easiest questions:

Tough Questions (Standard 12 only) Easy questions Standard 11 Easy questions Standard 11
Alcohols Chemical Bonding Biomolecules
Phenols and Ethers Chemical Thermodynamics Chemistry in Everyday Life
Coordination Compounds Hydrocarbons Electrochemistry
P-block Elements Solid State Solutions
Purification and Characteristics of Organic Compounds

This is the breakup of marks between different topics of the Chemistry section:

Topic Marks Allotted
Organic Chemistry 44
Inorganic Chemistry 28
Physical Chemistry 48

This distribution of marks ensured that the overall paper was easy.

Mathematics

Surprisingly, Mathematics was the easiest paper amongst the three. Most questions were calculative. There were 10 questions asked from the class 12th  syllabus and 20 questions from the 11th standard syllabus. This section had 3 difficult questions, 14 moderate questions and 13 easy questions.

This is a breakup of chapters which had the toughest and easiest questions:

Tough Questions Easy questions (11th Standard) Easy questions (12th Standard)
Hyperbola
Parabola
Sets
Relations and Functions
Mathematical Induction and Reasoning
Parabola
Permutations and Combinations
Quadratic Equations
Sequences and Series
Statistics
Trigonometry
3D Geometry
Determinants
Differential Equations

This is the breakup of marks between different topics of the Maths section:

Topic Marks Allotted
Algebra 56
Calculus 28
Trigonometry 8
Conics 16
Vector Algebra 12

This distribution of marks ensured that the overall paper was tough.
