JEE Advanced 2021, which is a gateway to the prestigious IITs, IISc and other engineering colleges of our country, was held on Sunday, 3rd October, 2021. In this article, you will find the analysis of both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of JEE Advanced 2021. The exam was conducted on October 3rd in two shifts with paper 1 concluded at 12:00 noon and paper 2 at 5:30 pm. Students were allotted 3 hours for each paper (PwD candidates were given 4 hours). Below you will find the detailed analysis of both the papers of JEE Advanced, 2021.
JEE Advanced 2021 Paper 1 Analysis:
There were 57 in all in paper 1 having 19 questions in each of the 3 sections i.e., Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics. The maximum marks for each section were 60 and the overall total marks were 180. Overall student reaction for the paper was moderate to difficult. A section of students found Chemistry to be moderate while some found Physics to be easy to moderate. But questions from Mathematics were found relatively difficult. A slight change was observed as the total number of questions in Paper 1 were reduced from 57 to 54 compared to the previous year. This also resulted in changing to total marks from 198 to 180.
Chemistry: It was a balanced paper covering almost all the topics equally from both class 11th and 12th. Questions from NCERT were seen as in Inorganic Chemistry direct questions were found from NCERT. Hence, a thorough study of NCERT will help to score good marks in this section. While Physical chemistry saw topics like Electrochemistry, Thermodynamics, and Titration, in organic chemistry the questions were mostly asked from Amines and Biomolecules.
Physics: This section saw a good number of questions from Class 11th topics. Some good questions were asked from topics like Optics, Current Electricity, Rotation, and Modern Physics. However, this section was easier for most of the students in comparison to the other two sections.
Mathematics: This section was found relatively difficult from the other sections. It was found difficult by students and there were a lot of tricky questions asked from the topics like Coordinate Geometry, Trigonometry, Circles, and Parabola. Some good questions were also seen from topics like Probability, 3-D Geometry, and Complex Numbers.
JEE Advanced 2021 Paper 2 Analysis:
Similar to Paper 1, this paper also had 57 questions in all with 19 questions in each of the 3 sections i.e., Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics. It also had the maximum marks for each section to be 60 and resulting the total marks to be 180. However, the overall difficulty level of paper 2 was higher than paper one as questions were found to be difficult as well as lengthy. The subject wise analysis for paper 2 is mentioned below.
Chemistry: This section was considered tricky by some students while some reported to be easy to moderate in terms of difficulty level. The overall weightage to this section was balanced covering all the topics majorly. Also, there were no direct questions asked from Inorganic Chemistry as it was seen in paper 1.
Physics: This section had some conceptual questions and had balanced weightage similar to the other sections of paper 2. The questions from this section were found moderate in terms of difficulty level. Some of the questions from the section were time consuming as they used application of multiple concepts.
Mathematics: It was considered toughest among all the other sections. Students found the questions to be lengthy in calculation. Also, it was a balanced section covering almost all the topics.
The official answer key for the exam is expected to be released on 10th October and the results will be declared on 15th October, 2021 on the official website of JEE Advanced 2021.
