JEE Main 2024 Session 1 Paper Analysis: The JEE Main Exam for the 2024 Session 1 was conducted from 27th January to 1st February in Computer-based Test mode (CBT) across various cities worldwide. This year, the exam took place in 291 cities in India and 21 cities outside India. After the completion of the exam, the NTA will release the JEE Main Session 1 Provisional Answer Key and the candidate’s response sheet, which will help the students calculate their marks. The JEE Main 2024 Session 1 paper analysis and difficulty level of each paper have been provided below for the reference of the JEE Main 2024 candidates. The subject-matter experts of ALLEN Overseas have curated the JEE Main Session 1 detailed paper analysis of all three subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

JEE Main 2024 Session 1 Paper Analysis:

1. Mathematics: 

Math paper was more on the moderate. Topics like Sequence & Series, Co-ordinate Geometry (straight line, conic section, circle), Binomial Theorem, Function & Inverse Trigonometric Functions, Limit, Continuity & Differentiation, Indefinite & Definite Integration, Vector-3D, Probability have high weightage. At the same time, Trigonometric Equations, Determinants, and Quadratic Equations have a lower weightage. Class-wise, topics from both classes 11 & 12 have equal weightage. Overall, the level of the paper is moderate to difficult type, with lengthy calculations.

2. Physics:

The Physics paper was of moderate level for all the shifts. Questions were asked from all the chapters that are covered in the syllabus. As expected, current electricity, EMI, EM Waves, unit & dimensions, and NLM have higher weightage. Class-wise, the class 12 topics’ weight is higher than the class 11 topics’ weight. Overall, the paper was well structured, containing all questions (easy & difficult). This time, in all the shifts, the paper was easy to moderate in difficulty level and contained fact-based questions from NCERT to check the students’ knowledge.

3. Chemistry:

Topic-wise Analysis of Organic Chemistry:

The organic chemistry paper was mostly NCERT-based. The weightage for organic chemistry in every shift was higher than for physical and inorganic chemistry. Questions were asked from aromatic compounds, GOC, Amines, Aldehydes & Ketones, Biomolecules, Phenol & Ethers, Aryl & Alkyl Halides mixed concept questions. Overall, the paper level was moderate to easy level, covering all the chapters.

Topic-wise Analysis of Inorganic Chemistry

A slight change has been seen this time in the inorganic chemistry, very few questions from coordination compounds, metallurgy, p-block elements were asked in the exam. There were more questions from the periodic table, chemical bonding, and salt analysis. Fact-based questions are directly asked from the NCERT. Talking about the entire shift paper on inorganic chemistry the paper was theoretical.
