Around 1.5 lakh students had appeared for the JEE Advanced 2014 exam in 99 centres across the country.
According to R L Trikha, Director, FIITJEE, like last year, this year also Paper 2 was of 3 hours and had 60 questions. There were 3 passages each having 2 questions - multiple choices single correct answer. Last year there were 4 passages, each having 2 questions - multiple choices single correct answer.
"The paper 1 was lengthy and paper 2 had tough questions. But we were surprised to know that there was no negative marking for either the MAMCQs or the integer type questions in paper 1," said Durgesh Mangeshkar, director of IITian's Prashikshan Kendra.
"This time the examination was difficult as compared to previous year's. The Physics question paper was lengthy whereas Chemistry paper had questions based on uncommon factual questions. Though students have done well, in general they found it difficult. This year the cut off will be less," said P K Daksh of FIITJEE, Pune.
"In MAMCQs, if a student marks two right answers and doesn't mark the third one, he will get a zero. The only respite is that there is no negative marking," said Nikhil Bhatnagar, manager of FIITJEE.
A student from Bangalore, Ravi said, "The exam was not so difficult for me. The second paper of JEE Advanced 2014 was easy and the first paper was average in difficulty level. For me, Chemistry was the easiest section, while Maths was the toughest. There was no repetition of questions from previous years."
Sandhya said that paper 1 was average and paser 2 was difficult.
Narayan said that Chemistry paper was tough and Mathematics and Physics were average in difficulty.
