Sumit Vyas, a student from Mumbai said the Mathematics section was the lengthiest. “Most of us could not attempt the full section as most questions were time consuming. Algebra was given more importance than calculus in the paper,” he said. Many students are planning to challenge such questions with the CBSE that conducted the exam.
Manya Goel, another candidate thought the problems in most sections were solvable but time was a problem. “Except for a couple of questions in the Chemistry section, I found all other questions of medium difficulty level. However, it was difficult to solve the paper in three hours,” she said.

Candidates who took the JEE Mains in Lucknow were of the view that question paper in the first shift was quite lengthy and many of them could not answer all questions. They also found the question paper to be tricky.
Both Riya and Aditi from Lucknow were of the view that they had to race against time as the question paper of the first shift was lengthy. “We had to struggle to complete the paper. Some of the questions were tricky too,” one of them said, while the other agreed.
Priyanshu of Ambedkar Nagar too said he is worried as JEE has negative marking, so a wrong answer leads to deduction of one mark. Shivang and Priyanshi, both from Lucknow said, “We never expected that difficulty level of the question paper will be high.”

According to Rwit Panda, a student of DPS R.K.Puram, the exam was a bit difficult and quite lengthy as compared to last year. He said, ” Maths took a lot of time so it was the toughest section for me. On the other hand, Chemistry as usual, was the easiest and Physics was of moderate level. Out of 90 questions, I could solve around 84 questions”.
Vikas Chaudhary who took the exam for the second time said, “Maths is my weakest point and I found it to be tough and lengthy. The exam was neither very easy nor very tough. Chemistry was the easiest while Physics was of moderate level. I was able to solve 80% of the questions though. Let’s hope for the best”.
