JEE Advanced exam paper contains two papers with questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics order.

JEE aspirants felt tough to answer the Mathematics questions in examination.

"Considering the fact that quantitative skills are an extremely important component of the testing process, it is proposed to change this order to mathematics, followed by physics and then chemistry," said the IIT-JEE (advanced) 2013 report.

"We have noticed that most students start attempting the paper with chemistry or physics. We have suggested that mathematics be given more importance," said JEE-2013 convener H C Gupta.

According to the reports, only 23 students managed to score 300 out of 360. Over 326 students scored above 250 marks.

According to the sources, board planning to provide some easy questions, that students can easily answer the questions in the examination.

"The competition thickens as one travels down along the rank list," said an IIT-JEE Chairman.

About 96.6% freshers took the exam in 2013, as compared to 80% in 2012.

About 30-45% students allotted seats at the older IITs were successful on their second attempt. At IIT-Roorkee, 44.6% of the candidates cracked the JEE on second attempt. That percentage stood at 32.7 at IIT-Delhi, 29.6 at IIT-Bombay and 38.6 at IIT-Kanpur. Over half the students allotted seat in IIT-Jodhpur and ISM Dhanbad were also trying their hand the second time.

"This could be due to the choice of branches of the candidates," said JEE-2013 convener Gupta.

For the year 2014, JEE Main examination will be held on 6th April, and JEE Advanced examination will be held on 25 May.
