JEE Main Exam: Difficulty level

The level of difficulty as per feedback from students on 25th January ,2023 (Forenoon Session).

Mathematics – Moderately Tough Level. Questions were asked from all chapters with emphasis on Chapters of Algebra & Calculus. Questions asked from Matrices, Determinants, 3D Geometry, Vectors, Permutation & Combination, Probability, Binomial Theorem, Complex Numbers, Differentiation, Definite Integrals, Area under Curves, Hyperbola & Circle. The Numerical Section had lengthy calculations. Few questions in MCQs were reported as Tricky & Lengthy.

Physics – Easy. Questions were asked from Laws of Motion, Rotational Motion, Carnot Engine, Work ,Power & Energy, Simple Harmonic Motion, Ray Optics, Capacitance, Magnetism, Semi-Conductors , Communication Systems, Modern Physics, Centre of Mass, Electrostatics. Numerical based questions were easy. Overall, the students felt this section was Balanced and Easy.

Chemistry – Easy to Moderate level. Organic & Inorganic Chemistry had questions directly from NCERT Books. Less weightage given to Physical Chemistry that too in Numerical Section. In Physical Chemistry questions were asked from Electrochemistry, Ionic Equilibrium, Solutions, Ores & Metallurgy and Atomic Structure. Organic Chemistry had questions from Aldehydes & Ketones, Amines, Carboxylic Acids, Phenols and General Organic Chemistry. Inorganic had questions from Co-ordination Compounds, Chemistry in Everyday Life, Group-18. Few questions from Organic Chemistry were reported slightly tricky.

In terms of order of Difficulty – Mathematics was Moderately Tough, Chemistry was Easy to Moderate, while Physics was Easy. Overall, this paper was of Moderate level as per students.
