Over 6000 aspirants appeared for Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main Paper I for admission to BTech/ BE courses on Tuesday at three centres in city. The examination was conducted in two shifts.
The aspirants found the paper easy to moderate. The exam was of 300 marks and divided into three sections- physics, chemistry and mathematics – with total 75 questions. Last year, a total of 90 questions were asked.
For many candidates chemistry was easy and questions were based on National Council of Educational Research Training (NCERT) syllabus. “Chemistry had more inorganic questions as compared to organic. Chemistry in everyday life turned out to be an important chapter,” said an aspirant Bhumika Mehta.
The reactions asked in chemistry were from syllabus of NCERT only. Questions in physics were easily solvable. Numericals did not involve a lot of calculation, she added.
