The JEE-2011 consisted of two papers. Here are some characteristics of this year’s paper. Paper 1 was of three parts (Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics). Each Part had 23 questions of 80 marks. Each part had 4 sections. • • • • Section I had 7 questions of 3 mark each (Total Marks: 21). This section had negative marking of -1 mark if wrong answer is marked Section II had 4 questions of 4 marks each (Total Marks: 16). There was no negative marking in this section. Section III had 5 questions of 3 marks each (Total Marks: 15). This section had negative marking of -1 mark if wrong answer is marked Section IV had 7 questions of 4 marks each (Total Marks: 28). There was no negative marking in this section.
Paper 2 was again of three parts (Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics). Each Part had 20 questions of 80 marks. Each part had 4 sections. • • • • Section I had 8 questions of 3 mark each (Total Marks: 24). This section had negative marking of -1 mark if wrong answer is marked Section II had 4 questions of 4 marks each (Total Marks: 16). There was no negative marking in this section. Section III had 6 questions of 4 marks each (Total Marks: 24). There was no negative marking in this section. Section IV had 2 questions of 8 marks each (Total Marks: 16). There was no negative marking in this section. However, a provision was made of awarding 2 marks for each row answered correctly in question, thus maximum 8 marks per question.
The distribution of topics was fair and proper weightage was given to each topic as per IIT-JEE traditions. Less negative marking than last year will push the cutoffs to the higher side however no provision for partial marking will work to push the cutoff lower. All in all, this year’s exam was easier as compared to previous year’s exam and cutoffs are expected to go up this year. Below is the subject wise analysis of exam papers
