IIT JEE Main Examination – 2016 was conducted in two modes – Online and Offline. Offline Exam was conducted on 03 Apr 2016 and online exam was conducted on 09 Apr 2016 and 10 Apr 2016.

The paper consisted of 90 questions and the maximum mark was 360. There were three parts in the question paper A, B, C consisting of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics having 30 questions in each part of equal weightage. Each question was allotted 4 (four) marks for correct response. There was also the provision of deduction of one-fourth marks for each incorrect response and no mark was deducted for unattempted question.

Out of all the parts in the question paper, students found Mathematics as most difficult part but it was easier than last year one. Most of the questions were NCERT based while some require greater knowledge.

Unit-wise break up of questions from each unit has been provided in the pie graph below: IIT JEE Main 2016 was a very good mixture of Class 11 and Class 12 syllabus. In mathematics the weightage of Class 11 and Class 12 was equal. A detailed analysis of the questions asked from each chapter has been provided in the table.
