JEE Main 2016: Physics Analysis

May 27, 2016 09:30 IST

    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.

    In this article, we are going to analyse physics section of the paper. Physics section of the paper was moderate. Also, the paper had less calculations as compared to last year. Almost 18-20 questions were NCERT based and rest requires some greater knowledge.
