Paper analysis and reviews for the attempt
“The maths section was kind of challenging and much tougher even on Thursday, similar to the first day,” Atil Arora, JEE mentor, said. He added among all subjects, students felt the Physics section and Chemistry section was easy. However, Maths was found to be "tough".
“The questions were from the syllabus, but very twisted in Maths,” Simran Sukheja, an aspirant, said. She added that Physics was surprisingly easy with direct questions.
“I am so happy with the examination, because I feared Physics section the most, but it was much easier than I expected!” exclaimed Kanak Patel. She further added that Maths was challenging but manageable for her.
“Maths being challenging is not something new for any of us, so it was cool,” Himanshu Rao, an aspirant, said. He was among the students who went in fearful and came out with a grin spread across his face.
