JEE Advanced 2016 Paper Pattern

JEE Advanced 2016 Paper PatternThe best way to get familiar with the JEE Advanced 2016 Paper Pattern is to solve previous years’ IIT JEE and JEE Advanced question papers. It helps one form an idea about the types of questions one should expect in the exam and number of questions in each subject to be solved in the specified JEE Advanced 2016 paper duration.

JEE Advanced 2016 Exam Pattern

The JEE Advanced Paper Pattern 2016 states that the exam will have two papers:

Paper 1 and Paper 2.

Both the exams will be conducted on the same date – Last Week of May, 2016. Paper 1 will be held from 9 am to 12 noon while Paper 2 will be held from 2 pm to 5 pm.

The question papers will only be available in two languages – English and Hindi. Candidates will have to choose the medium they prefer at the time of applying for the exam.

Each paper will have three sections and exam duration of three hours:

  • Section 1 will be Physics,

  • Section 2 will be Chemistry, and

  • Section 3 will be Mathematics.

Last year, many students had not been able to solve Mathematics section completely due to time constraints. Hence, it is very important to practice time management for JEE exams.

JEE Advanced 2016 questions will be designed to test the comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of students. Questions will be objective-type and Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). There is negative marking in the exam to discourage random guessing by students.

Paper 1

  • Section 1 will have 10 MCQs. Each question will have four options with only one correct answer.

  • Section 2 will have 5 MCQs. Each question will have four options with one or more correct answer(s).

  • Section 3 will have 5 questions with answers in single digit integer ranging from 0 to 9.

  • Section 1 will have 8 MCQs. Each question will have four options with one or more correct answer(s).

  • Section 2 will have 8 MCQs. Each question will have four options with only one correct answer. This section will have four paragraphs with theory, practical aspects, data etc. 2 questions will be asked from each paragraph.

  • Section 3 will have Matching List type questions. Two lists will be given with matching options coded as a, b, c, and d. Students will have to choose options according to the given code.


Paper 2

  • The Upper sheet of the Answer booklet will be the Optical Response Sheet (ORS), which is designed in a way that machines can read your answers. It will have two pages stuck together with no carbon in between.

  • Candidates will have to mark the appropriate bubbles for each question on the front page, which will automatically be recorded in the sheet below. Hence, students must be careful that they do not disturb the alignment between these two sheets or separate them at any point of the exam.

  • Do remember that you have to use only the black ball point pen for the exam. Also, read the instructions carefully as you cannot change the answers you have marked already.

  • Apply adequate pressure on the answer sheet. The pressure should not be too much to pierce the bubbles or so light that the impressions on the second sheet are not visible properly. The invigilator will give you the copy of the sheet at the end of the exam which you can match with the JEE Advanced answer key later.
