Entrance Corner: The JEE Main 2017 Paper I is now over, can you please share your overall analysis of the question paper?
Vinay Kumar: The Paper 1 of JEE Main 2017 was set up in a different manner compared to last two years. The Physics section of the exam was easy followed by chemistry and mathematics was the most difficult of all. The section on Maths was also a bit lengthier compared to other two. Candidates of JEE Main 2017 will score more marks in Physics and Chemistry and less in mathematics.
Entrance Corner: According to you which topics from JEE Main Syllabus dominated the JEE Main 2017 paper 1?
Vinay Kumar: The paper pattern of JEE Main was similar from the questions papers of previous years. The section of Chemistry had equal questions from all topics i.e. 10 questions from physical, 10 from Inorganic and 10 from Organic Chemistry. Even in Mathematics and Physics sections there were questions from all topics and parts of the syllabus.
Entrance Corner: How many candidates from your institute appeared for paper 1 of JEE Main 2017? What is their take on the exam?
Vinay Kumar: 5000 odd candidates have appeared for the JEE Main 2017 paper 1 from RAO IIT academy. Students were more comfortable in the Physics section. Some of the candidates who had appeared for the exam in the previous year found a shift of pattern in JEE Main exam. Previously Physics section was termed as the most difficult but this year mathematics was tough and lengthy. Candidates who attempted the mathematics section first lost out on the remaining exam as it consumed a lot of their time.
Entrance Corner: What according to your will be the expected JEE Main 2017 cutoff?
Vinay Kumar: The cutoff score of JEE Main 2017 is not expected to change much from the previous year. There will be very little variation as approximately 2,20,000 candidates are expected to be shortlisted for JEE Advanced this year. As the number of qualified candidates is increasing, the cutoff is expected to dip by 5 to 10%. The cutoff score for the general category candidates can be expected around 90 -100 whereas the cutoff for OBC will be around 70.
Entrance Corner: This year, candidates who are in the top percentile or have secured 75% marks in their class 12th boards will be eligible for admission. In your view, how will this affect the cutoff scores of JEE Main 2017?
Vinay Kumar: The new selection criteria adopted by CBSE will not affect the cutoff scores in a big way. The rank of candidates in the merit list will completely depend on the candidate’s performance in the exam. Hard work of candidates will definitely show in their results.
Entrance Corner: Were there any wrong questions in paper 1 of JEE Main 2017?
Vinay Kumar: No there was not a single wrong question in JEE Main 2017 paper 1 however there was a debatable question in the physics section in which we are expecting a bonus. One particular question from physics might have two correct answers.
Entrance Corner: Would you like to give any advice to the candidates appearing for the online JEE Main exam on April 8 and 9, 2017?
Vinay Kumar: Candidates who will appear for the exam of April 8 and 9, should not assume that the Maths section will be difficult. The candidates should analyze the complete paper first and accordingly choose the easy and difficult sections. Candidates should always attempt the easier sections first and then move on to the difficult part of JEE Main 2017 exam.
