The examination had evoked mixed reaction from students across the country.

Mahendra Patel, a resident of Madhya Padesh, who appeared in the exam at YMCA Centenary School and College, Allahabad said: “The JEE Main paper cannot be described as easy or tough. I attempted all questions but the Mathematics part was exhausting due to complex nature of questions.”

“The Physics portion of the paper, though was in accordance to class 11 and class 12 syllabus, was tough compared to questions of Mathematics and Chemistry,” said Adarsh Kumar, a resident of Faizabad district of Uttar Pradesh.

“Physics questions were tough. I attempted all questions pertaining to Mathematics and Chemistry,” said Saurabh Shukla, a resident of Allahabad who appeared in the exam.

Candidates who took the JEE Mains in Lucknow were of the view that question paper in the first shift was quite lengthy and many of them could not answer all questions. They also found the question paper to be tricky.

Both Riya and Aditi from Lucknow were of the view that they had to race against time as the question paper of the first shift was lengthy. “We had to struggle to complete the paper. Some of the questions were tricky too,” one of them said, while the other agreed.

A teacher of a reputed institutein Bhopal, who is not authorised to comment, said, “Overall the paper was of moderate difficulty level. The Chemistry’s questions were lengthy. A few students found difficulty in answering questions of organic chemistry. The cut-off will be similar to that of last year.”
