# JEE Advanced 2016: Mathematics Analysis

May 26, 2016 09:00 IST

IIT JEE Advanced Examination – 2016 was conducted on 22 May 2016. The examination consisted of two papers – Paper -1 and Paper-2. There were three parts in each paper – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. This article talks about the detailed analysis of Mathematics part of the paper.

There were 18 questions of Mathematics in each paper. So, a total of 36 questions were asked from Mathematics. As compared to other parts of the paper, mathematics paper was lengthy and consumed more time.

A detailed analysis of the questions asked from each chapter has been provided in the table.

Approximately 70% of the paper was from Algebra and Calculus (Differential and Integral). Analytical Geometry constituted 20% while trigonometry constituted 8% of the paper.

Unit-wise break up of questions from each unit has been provided in the pie graph below:

IIT JEE Advanced 2016 was a mixture of Class 11th and Class 12th questions. Approximately 40% questions were asked from Class 11th and and  60% questions were asked from Class 12th.
