Jee Advanced Paper 2 Analysis: Physics Unsettles Some

Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Advanced 2017 was successfully conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on May 21, 2017, in various examination centers across the country.The level of exam this year was of moderate difficulty. Those who appeared for the exam found Physics and Chemistry sections tougher as compared to Mathematics section.

Candidates who took JEE Advanced 2017 exam must be eager to know about their performance. According to reports, 1.7 lakh students had registered for theexam this year.The paper was conducted in the second session of the day i.e. from 2 PM to 5 PM.

Students who appeared for the exam found Physics a little challenging, while Chemistry and Mathematics were comparatively easier. Tejas, who appeared for the exam for the first time said, “I found Physics difficult as compared to Chemistry and Mathematics. Physics contained questions of applications. For Mathematics, you needed to be well aware of theorems, concepts and derivations. Chemistry was quite easy.”

He adds, “The questions were equally asked from syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12. However, for better preparation it was important to refer to other books as well.”

According to research from various top institutes who prepare students for IIT, it has been found that physics section was the most time consuming, tricky and difficult from rest of the sections and paper 1 as well. Chemistry paper overall was easy to moderate and in Mathematics few questions were conceptual based.

Subject-wise analysis

Various experts have analysed that the exam pattern, concept and the level of difficulty of JEE Advanced Paper 2 was similar, as far as difficulty level is concerned, with that of previous year. But the level of the Paper 2 was found much higher than that of Paper 1. There are chances that one question in Mathematics will be bonus, since an ambiguity is expected.Physics JEE Advanced Paper 2 was tougher than that of Paper 1 and carried two to three questions which were numerical-based. The paper was a bit lengthy and time consuming. The Chemistry paper was of average difficulty level and carried questions that were quite well within the syllabus.


In JEE Advanced Paper 2, this year Physics section was observed to be slightly difficult as compared to that in Paper 1. Questions based on rotational mechanics were quite tough to crack. Experts found one question of ambiguous nature. To solve this section, applicants were required to have in-depth knowledge of concepts and analytical skills were required.


Experts and students say that chemistry section in paper 2 of JEE Advanced were moderately difficult. Candidates were required to have an in-depth knowledge of the topics covered in organic and inorganic chemistry. Out of all, 4 questions were very difficult to analyse. Organic chemistry comprised 7 questions, 5 questions were asked from inorganic chemistry while physical chemistry consisted of 6 questions.


Mathematics section was again easy to moderate. The questions were asked to test basic knowledge related to the concepts and fundamentals. Paper 2 involved rest of the topics like vector, 3D, integral calculus etc. One question in maths was ambiguous, ambiguity being, none of the given options was correct.

Brief bifurcation and pattern of JEE ADVANCED PAPER 2

  • Max marks: 183
  • Duration: 3 hours
  • The booklet had 36 printed pages and 54 questions in total.
  • There were three parts of paper-2.
