JEE Main 2015 (Paper 1) exam was held in the pen-and-paper based mode or offline mode on April 4, 2015 - from 9 am to 12:30 pm – for admission to BE and B.Tech courses in the participating colleges. This exam is conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) every year. About 13 lakh students are scheduled to take the exam this year across India.

According to the askIITians experts, the paper was of ‘moderate’ level, which means that it was neither too easy nor too difficult. The paper consists of 3 parts - Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Megha Jain, an IIT JEE 2015 aspirant, said "Mathematics paper was the easiest and Physics was the toughest". There were 90 questions in the JEE Main paper which were of 360 marks in total. Four marks are allotted for every correct answer.

This is how our students have rated different sections of JEE Main April 4 paper:

  • In Physics, there were 30 questions out of which 25 were numerical-based while only 5 questions were theory-based. So, the section was very much time consuming and arduous to solve. Many students found it quite difficult to plough through this section.

  • Mathematics section was lengthy but quite easy too. However, some students complained that there were errors in this section.

  • Chemistry was also easy this year. It was neither time-consuming nor difficult. Most of the questions were based on facts and could make a big difference to the final scores of the students.

Below is the complete analysis of JEE Main 2015 Paper by ex-IITians:

Difficulty Level of Questions in JEE Main 2015

                                  

Chemistry

This was the most scoring section in the exam. But since most JEE aspirants pay little attention to the subject, they had difficulty in solving the question.

Physics

This was the toughest section of the exam and students took much time to solve all the numericals. Those who practiced short-cut methods suggested in the askIITians study material well fared better in this section.

Mathematics

After tough CBSE Class 12 Math paper, engineering aspirants were anxious about the difficulty level of Math in the JEE Main exam (which is also conducted by the CBSE). But the section was the easiest of the 3 sections in the exam. Though, it was a bit time-consuming which was expected.
