JEE Main 2020: Paper 1 Analysis, 8th January 2020

NTA conducted Paper 1 (BE/B.Tech) of JEE Main 2020 today, on 8th January in two sessions – Morning and Afternoon or two shifts – Shift 1 and 2. The exam was conducted across the nation, in the designated centres. The morning session was held from 9.30 AM to 12.30 PM and the afternoon session was held from 2.30 PM to 5.30 PM.

We provided the analysis for yesterday’s exam, i.e., 7th January 2020 and we have the analysis for today’s exam as well. The difficulty level was a bit higher as compared to yesterday’s exam. Let’s understand the detailed analysis and major highlights of the exam. Read on:

Morning Session – Shift 1 (9.30 AM to 12.30 PM)

As per the early analysis, the level of the morning session exam was easy to moderate. Chemistry was found to be comparatively easier than Mathematics and Physics. In Chemistry, most questions were NCERT-based and were from the Inorganic Chemistry section. For Physics, Optics & Modern Physics and Mechanics were the main topics. In Mathematics, most questions were asked from Calculus and Algebra.

Major takeaways from the morning session:

  • The exam was tougher than yesterday’s exam.
  • Chemistry was easy, Physics had a moderate difficulty level and Mathematics was lengthy.
  • In Chemistry, Organic and Inorganic questions were balanced.
  • Overall, the exam covered syllabus from class 12th.
  • Numerical Value questions were much easier than yesterday.

Following are the major subject-wise topics that were covered in the exam:

Physics Mathematics Chemistry
Current Electricity Conic Sections Atomic Radius of Elements
Semiconductors Parabola Environmental Chemistry
Logic Gates Integration Biomolecules
Modern Physics Functions Coordination Compounds
Wave Optics Probability

Major takeaways from the afternoon session:

  • Most of the Chemistry questions were from NCERT and were easier.
  • The Mathematics section was time-consuming.
  • Numerical Value questions were easy in terms of difficulty.
  • Physics was the toughest section out of the three sections.
  • The overall syllabus was balanced when it comes to questions from class 11th and 12th.

Following are the major subject-wise topics that were covered in the exam:

Conclusion

Overall, today’s exam was found a bit tougher than January 7th exam. Students were of a different opinion about the type of questions asked. We hope that those who attempted the exam today gave their best and are hoping for a great percentile.

However, there’s one thing to be remembered – JEE Main 2020 will be held in April as well. Those who couldn’t quite perform well in the January attempt can opt for taking the exam in April too.

Practise is the key to crack JEE and you can always practise by taking myPAT’s mock test to boost your preparation.
