Overall Analysis

overall analysis

  • Physics paper -1 is easy but paper -2 is difficult.
  • Chemistry- Physical chemistry is of difficult level, inorganic is having unconventional questions and organic is of easy type with 2 questions of moderate difficulty level.
  • Mathematics- Paper one is moderate and paper two is moderate to difficult.
  • Two questions in chemistry and one in mathematics will be bonus.
  • Cut off will go up in comparison to last year. 255 plus top 100. 294 plus top 10 and 90 marks will be the cut off in comparison to 75 last years.
  • ” Students who were not comfortable in paper-2, should not be discouraged as that will be a common phenomenon pan India, Also I expect IITs will reward bonus credits for the 3 questions, 2- chemistry and 1- mathematics, both in paper-2, “
