Syed Haider Ali, a student from Bal Bharti School, Noida appeared for JEE Main Paper 1 and reviewed the paper as follows:


JEE Main Paper 2 was conducted on January 8, in two slots, forenoon and evening. The exam was partially computer based and partially pencil-and-paper based. Mathematics and Aptitude sections were computer-based and the drawing section was pencil-and-paper based.

Students reported the paper to be between easy to moderate difficulty level. Mathematics was the toughest of all three sections and drawing was the easiest. The drawing section majorly depended on student’s imagination, so, this section was to test a student’s drawing and imagining capability.

Mathematics section did not cover topics equally from the entire syllabus of class 11th and 12th. Many students believed that the Mathematics section for B. Arch. /B. Des. Aspirants were at par with the mathematics section for B.Tech. Aspirants. Aptitude section was of easy to moderate difficulty level, having questions about 2D, 3D views, full forms, etc.
