Expert analysis: JEE Main 25th July Complete Paper Analysis

A Question paper was of moderate difficulty level. Topic coverage in all three subjects was extensive. The paper contained some challenging questions.

Subject wise analysis:

Mathematics

The Mathematics part was moderate. AS usual, some questions involved lengthy calculations. There were 7 to 8 questions from calculus, not less than 6 questions from Algebra and 3 to 4 questions from Vectors, and 3 Dimensional not less than 4 questions were from Coordinate Geometry. Another noteworthy aspect was that there were 2 to 3 questions from differential equations, trigonometry and probability too in the paper. Regular practice and solving mock tests would be of great help in scoring well on such a paper.

Physics

The Physics paper was of easy to moderate difficulty level. Questions were asked from almost all chapters - not less than 6 questions from Mechanics, 2 or 3 questions from Heat and Thermodynamics, 5 or 6 questions from electromagnetics, and questions were also asked from modern physics. There were questions on Semiconductors and communications in the numerical section of the paper. There were a couple of questions taken directly from the NCERT book.

As expected, numerical type questions were more in numbers than theoretical questions and almost all numericals were simple formula-based questions. Practising a sufficient number of similar tests would keep students in good stead.

Chemistry

This paper was easy to Moderate and NCERT based. An almost equal number of questions were asked from the Physical, Inorganic, and Organic branches of Chemistry. The majority of questions in the numerical value-based section were from Physical Chemistry. The whole of the paper was NCERT based. Covering NCERT and its examples would be the key to scoring good marks. Chapters like Biomolecules, Environmental chemistry besides regular topics found due represented in the paper.

It was a moderate paper that can be solved in 3 hours.
