First Shift – JEE Main Paper Analysis
As per the feedback received on ALLEN C-SAT app from the students who appeared for the first shift of exam, calculations in Math were too lengthy and some questions in Physics were difficult. In Physics, there were more questions from Class XI. Questions from Biomolecule and F-Block in Chemistry were seen for the first time in September, JEE-Main.
In organic, there were Chiral center numerical based on separation technique related and product formed after reaction order. In Physical Chemistry, there was more weightage of Electrochemistry and Surface Chemistry. Under Inorganic Chemistry, questions were asked on Isomeric, VBT, P-Block, and Chemical Bonding.
In Physics, questions from Dimension Analysis and Compound Microscope were difficult. Questions were even asked from Semiconductor and Magnetic Dipole.
