The first online Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main was conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on April 10. The exam was scheduled between 9:30 am and 12:30 am.
“Overall paper was of medium difficulty level. Out of the three subjects, Chemistry was relatively easy. Whereas, Physics and Maths were of medium difficulty level. There was no ambiguity found in any of the questions”, says Mr. Aakash Chaudhry, Director, AESPL (Aakash Educational Services Pvt. Ltd.)
Expected cut off:
Common Merit List (CML): 120-125
Other Backward Class (OBC): 80-85
Many candidates, however, found the entrance exam difficult as compared to the offline entrance exam, which was held on April 4.
The candidates who appeared for the online examination believe that this online mode of the examination is better as compared to the traditional offline mode.
Akshat Srivastava, a candidate who appeared for online JEE Main said, “The questions were simple but were strategically placed. The Physics section was a bit complicated and lengthy. The first 10 questions were very difficult and the rest while others were equally easy.”
Each section consisted of 30 questions. A total of 90 questions, carrying 360 marks were to be solved within the stipulated time. Four marks will be awarded for every right answer, whereas for a wrong answer, one mark will be deducted.
