Marks Distribution In JEE Mains Syllabus for Paper 1 & 2:
JEE consists of two papers, both allowing them to pursue the field of their interests. While Paper-1 helps the students to walk down the road to prestigious engineering institutions to pursue B.Tech/ B.E., Paper-2 is for those who aspire to take up the courses of B.Arch/ B. Planning. Both the tests are mostly held in two shifts per day, giving an option to the students to appear for both the exams to widen the horizon of opportunities. Both the exams, even though, belonging to the same field of engineering, differ a lot in their constitution and pattern. Students need to carefully review the designing of the papers in order to prepare for them in the best way possible.
JEE Mains Paper-1:
Following a computer-based test mode, students aspiring for courses of B.Tech and B.E. have to appear for this 3-hour test as a pre-requisite. The test contains 90 questions with 30 questions pertaining to physics, chemistry and Mathematics each. Since the questions are objective type, there is one correct option in each question. For every correct answer, the students are awarded with 4 marks while every wrong answer costs them 1 mark. With a totality of 360 marks, each subject experiences equal mark distribution.
JEE Mains Paper-2:
This test has a different pattern considering the courses it offers after its clearance. Those aspiring for B.Arch or B.Planning appear for this paper. While Mathematics and Aptitude tests are computer-based, drawing test has to be conducted in the pen-and-paper mode. The main subjects of the test being Mathematical, General Aptitude, and Drawing skills, there are a total of 83 questions.
JEE Marks Distribtion:
Distribution of Marks in JEE Mains Paper 1:
JEE PHYSICS: Modern physics contains 20 marks as compared to the topic of Heat and Thermodynamics which covers 12 marks. The topics of Optics, Current Electricity and Electrostatistics have been assigned 12 marks each. Magnetics, Unit, Dimension and vector, Kinematics, Laws of motion and Work, Power and Energy hold 8, 4, 4, 4 and 4 respectively. Centre of Mass, Impulse and Momentum, Rotation, Gravitation, Simple Harmonic Motion and Solids and Fluids behold 4 marks each in the test. The concepts of Waves and Electromagnetics Induction/ AC also have an equivalent say in the exam with the embracement of 4 marks each.
JEE MATHEMATICS: The concept of coordinate Geometry holds a big chunk by covering 20 marks in the exam. Limits, Continuity, and Differentiability cover 3 questions in the test and hence, 12 marks. Integral Calculus also beholds 12 marks in the JEE Mains. The complex number and Quadratic Equation carry 8 marks. Matrices and Determinants, Statistics and Probability, Three Dimensional Geometry and Vector algebra contain 8 marks each. Sets, Relation and Function, Permutation and Combinations, Binomial Theorem and Its Application, Sequences and Series, Trigonometry, Mathematical reasoning, Differential Equation, Statics and Dynamics and Differential Calculus carry 4 marks each and thus hold equivalent significance in the exam.
CHEMISTRY: The fields of Transition elements and Coordination Chemistry and Periodic Table and Representative Elements hold 12 marks in the test, making them the most score-containing concepts. Thermodynamics and Gaseous State, Atomic Structure and Chemical Bonding carry 8 marks each. Chemical and Ionic Equilibrium, Solid State and Surface Chemistry and, Nuclear Chemistry and Environment also constitute to 8 marks each. Other topics of Mole Concept, Redox Reaction, Electrochemistry and Chemical Kinetics are the topics containing 4 marks each. Solution and Colligative Properties, general Organic Chemistry, Stereochemistry, Hydrocarbon and Alkyl Halides all offer equal marks to the students (4 marks each). Carbohydrates, Amino acid and Polymers, and Aromatic Compounds also contain significance worth 4 marks each.
Distribution of Marks in JEE Mains Paper 2:
Mathematics covers 30 questions while Aptitude and Drawing cover 50 and 3 questions, respectively. JEE Paper 2 is of 390 marks in total with 70 marks devoted to the Drawing section. Mathematics and Aptitude tests involve objective questions. Every correct answer gives 4 marks to the student, and there exists negative marking for every wrong answer worth 1 mark.
Thus, there is a clear distribution of marks in these exams giving students a vivid idea as to how the preparation is to be commenced. The students can make a clear strategy to focus on selected topics. These patterns are prepared by NTA (National Testing Agency) and thus needs to be paid heed to. A clue regarding the marking scheme and duration can come in handy for all the JEE aspiring students.
