NTA conducted JEE Main Paper 2 exam on January 6. JEE Main Paper 2 is the entrance exam for admission to B.Arch courses at various government universities. The exams were conducted in two sessions, the forenoon session and the afternoon session.

In this article, we have provided a detailed analysis of the papers in both sessions so that students can get a better understanding of the exam.

- The papers in both the sessions were moderate to easy in their difficulty level.
- Second, questions were trickier rather than difficult.
- More questions were asked from the 11th standard syllabus.
- Lastly, numerical answer based questions are more challenging, said some candidates.

As usual, the B.Arch paper was subdivided into three sections – aptitude, mathematics and drawing.

In the aptitude section, students were tested on their mental ability rather than theoretical knowledge. There were questions regarding

- 3D images
- Symmetry between figures
- viewing of building structures from the top

In the mathematics section, questions were asked from

- Coordinate geometry
- Calculus
- Set theory
- Probability

Some students said that they found solving the numerical value questions more challenging than other questions. Since the questions in this section were a bit tricky, many students found this to be the most difficult section of the paper.

The third and last section is the drawing section. This section tests the creativity and artistic skill of students. The drawing section contains 100 marks. Students were asked to draw a gymnast and make a composition out of cylinders.

The JEE Main paper 3 is the official entrance exam conducted by the NTA for admission to B.Planning courses. The exam was conducted on January 6, 2020, at 327 **JEE Main Exam Centers **spread around the country.

The paper was subdivided into three subsections

- Mathematics- Part 1
- Aptitude test- Part 2
- Planning based objective type questions- Part 3.

The total time limit for the exam was three hours.

- Following in the trend of the shift 1 exam, students found the questions in the mathematics section to be the most difficult.
- Questions mostly tested the fundamental knowledge of the students and no advanced level questions were asked as such.
- Most questions in the mathematics section were asked from the class 11 syllabus.
- Students were tested on their knowledge in
- Probability
- Conic sections
- Set theory
- Calculus
- Coordinate geometry

An example of the questions in the mathematics section would be, “The vector equations of the sides of a parallel pipe is given along with its volume, find the coordinates of the vector equations of the sides.”

- Students also said that they found the objective type planning section questions quick to solve but required factual knowledge rather than conceptual.
- In this section, they were asked general knowledge questions, such as who is the architect of the LIC buildings.
- Ministers and government-related questions were also asked.

- The aptitude section was of easy to moderate difficulty level.
- Questions such as, what will be the side view of a building, if its top view is given or vice versa, were asked here.
- The questions in the drawing section were considered easy by most students, however, it was a bit time-consuming.

Both paper 2 and paper 3 were conducted in the CBT (computer-based test) mode. Although, the drawing questions were attempted on paper. In general, students have reacted positively to the ambience in the exam halls. The centers were peaceful and no technical glitches occurred as such.

The marking scheme is the same for all three paper types (B.Tech, B.Arch and B.Planning).

- For every correct answer, the student will be awarded 4 marks
- The candidate will lose 1 mark for an incorrect answer.
- Choosing multiple answers on the MCQ is treated as a wrong answer and marks will get deducted
- There is no negative marking in the numerical type questions.

Students are encouraged to attempt **previous year question papers** and also refer to the **JEE Main Answer Key**. This will not only strengthen their fundamental knowledge but also give them a clear idea about the pattern and difficulty level of these competitive exams.

JEE Main is one of the toughest papers and chapter wise preparation would be a smart decision. The chapter-wise analysis helps you to cover all the topics. Apart from that knowing chapter wise weightage helps students to intent wisely. JEE Main 2021 subject wise analysis will be updated here after the exam is conducted. However, inspecting previous year papers furnish students with likely important topics. So you can check the analysis of the JEE Main 2020 January paper by experts to know chapter wise weightage from each section.

- The exam will be conducted in 13 regional languages.
- There will be 30 questions and you will be required to answer 25 out of them. These 25 questions will comprise 20 MCQs and 5 numerical questions.
- All the three subjects, i.e, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry will be given equal weightage. Each question of each section will carry 4 marks. For every MCQ answered incorrectly, one mark will be deducted. There is no negative marking for numerical-based questions.
- Maths and Aptitude Tests will be common for both B.Arch and B.Plan Papers. B.Planning aspirants will have to solve a paper of 25 multiple choice questions on planning. Arch aspirants will have to sit for a Drawing test.
- The drawing test will be of 100 marks and will consist of only 2 questions instead of 3. The B.Arch Paper will consist of 77 questions instead of 81.
- B. Planning paper will carry 100 questions of 4 marks each.
- The B.Planning exam will be held separately. According to its exam pattern, it will have three sections—I, II, III. It will be Mathematics and the Aptitude test (similar to B.Arch), and Planning (multiple-choice questions).
- As the number of negative responses in the exam will be lower, students will have a better chance of securing a rank.
- The intention of holding the exam 4 times a year is to encourage more and more students to take the exam. It will also enable the students to understand the exam pattern in the first session and score better in the next one.
