NTA has recently announced the syllabus and pattern of the JEE MAIN January paper. Here I am going to discuss and analyze it.
- In the new pattern total 75 questions will be asked(25 per subject) among which 20 questions will be single correct type MCQs and 5 questions will be of numerical integer type(not sure about single digit/double digit or decimal)
- In MCQs 4 marks would be awarded for each correct answer and -1 is the negative marking while in integer type it is also +4 without negative marking. This means that out of 75 questions, 15 questions would be of no negative marking and mostly everyone would attempt it.
- Since the number of questions has been decreased, the difficulty level would surely increase but then too it is beneficial as 2019 was literally blunder due to marks inflation and all those stuffs.
- One should expect a paper of difficulty level of that of 2018 but any more predictions on difficulty is just waste.
- One more very important point is that solid state and communication systems which are not in board syllabus is still in Jee main’s syllabus so don’t forget it and also remember to work on questions based on practical skills like that of vernier calliper,travelling microscope etc.
At last, all the honest and hardworking students would be tension free and least concerned about all these pattern stuffs (this is nothing if you are familiar with that of advanced).
