About five lakh students appeared for the Joint Entrance Examination of Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT-JEE) across the country on Sunday. The reaction of Delhi aspirants was mixed.

While many felt that the Chemistry paper in the second part was very tough, others found it quite easy, saying that Mathematics was tough.

"The paper was easier as compared to the last time. Chemistry was easy but Mathematics was a little difficult. There was ample time to complete the paper," said Dolly Jha, whose examination centre was in Dilshad Garden.

Many students were also worried about the change in the marking scheme.

"Though negative marking has been done away with in some sections, the overall marking has become stricter. I am worried about that as I am not sure what the result will be like," said Abhishek Kiran, a student who has appeared for the examination last year as well.

A total of 4,85,262 candidates appeared for the test which was held at 1,051 centres in 131 cities. There are more than 9000 seats in the 16 IITs across the country. Results of the entrance examination will be declared on May 25.
