Well predicting ranks is very difficult this year. The key to success this time is the high score in paper-1. Those who have done well in paper-1 will find themselves better ranked .

The prediction from  for JEE ADVANCED 2016 are as given below
Marks                                      Rank
300                                         Under 10
250                                         Under 100
225                                         Under 250
200                                         Under 1000       
185                                         Under 2000               
165                                         Under 4000      
150                                         Under 6000
140                                         Under 8500

I expect cutoff to drop to around 27-30% in order to have sufficient number of Reserved category candidates.

Well both the papers had 54 questions and maximum marks of 186. The partial marking made a comeback this year in multiple options correct answer type questions.These two points were student friendly and as a result expressions of students coming out from examination centers were far better than those of last year.

PHYSICS: Overall physics was the toughest of the three subjects. Paper-2 was not less than a nightmare for students. I fear that many students will score net negative in physics paper-2.The news article published few days back citing Mrs. Irani that paper will be more based on NCERT appeared a cruel joke to the students who wrote the paper.Paper -1 was manageable and good students should score good marks in it.

CHEMISTRY: This year this should prove to be the most scoring section. Paper was balanced and average overall.

MATHEMATICS: Paper 1 was more challenging than the first one. Overall it appears to be on lighter side as compared to the last year.

Still need to wait for more reactions to be able to come up with an accurate prediction for this year.

Keep watching this space for  more updates.


The Answer keys are now Available

PHYSICS- PAPER-1  PAPER-2(Read Answer Q14-C,D and Q18-B)


Well Paper-1 this year was far more student friendly than the last year one. The Paper had three sections each in three subjects containing 18 questions per subject. Overall marks were 186.There was partial marking in the multiple option correct type questions. So due to lesser number of questions and also not very high difficulty student appeared far more relaxed than the same time last year.

The scenes at examination hall were surprising as many students were seen without shirts, torn sleeves which looked bad. These are students not thief or criminals.

Physics- Very well balanced paper. Three to four questions were quite new in concept and were difficult to solve. Integer questions were the easiest. A score of 45+ will be a very good score.

Chemistry- Students liked this section the most and it appears from there reactions it was easier this time.

Mathematics- The initial reactions of the students suggested that they found this to be very tough though the analysis of teachers and last year toppers suggested that it was milder than last year.

Only NEET valid says SC , also permits students who wrote NEET-1 to appear in NEET-2 if they want

The Supreme Court today ruled that the CBSE-conducted common national test would be the only valid entrance exam for undergraduate medical courses across the country, clearing the air on a three-year-long dispute involving several states and private colleges.
The far-reaching order means exams scheduled by any private college or any state, including Bengal, will not be valid.
"It is clarified that only NEET would enable students to get admission to MBBS or BDS studies," the three-judge bench said.
The bench also said those who had appeared for the May 1 phase of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) could sit for NEET-2 - scheduled to be held on July 24 - provided they gave up their claim on the NEET-1 results.
Around 6.5 lakh students had appeared for NEET-1.
The bench of Justices A.R. Dave, Shiva Kirti Singh and A.K. Goel also allowed the CBSE to reschedule NEET-2, if necessary.
The order came nearly a month after a five-judge Constitution bench had recalled a July 2013 judgment by a three-judge bench of the court that had declared the common test, introduced by the Medical Council of India and the Dental Council of India, unconstitutional.
Ahead of today's judgment, several states and private consortiums of colleges had argued that their own exams were either over or were in the process of being held and had sought NEET to be deferred till the next academic year.
But the bench said it didn't find "any merit" in the applications seeking a modification of its April 28 order directing the Centre to conduct a countrywide common entrance test for MBBS and dental courses for the 2016-17 academic year.
"Prima facie, we do not find any infirmity in the NEET regulation on the ground that it affects the rights of the states or the private institutions," the bench said, adding that special provisions for reservations of any category were not the subject matter of the NEET nor would the rights of minorities be in any manner affected by the common exam.
"NEET only provides for conducting (an) entrance test for eligibility for admission to the MBBS/BDS course. We thus do not find any merit in the applications seeking modification of (the) order dated 28th April, 2016," the bench said.
But the court made it clear that students who had applied for NEET-1 but couldn't appear or who appeared but couldn't "prepare fully" thinking there would be a "further opportunity to appear in other examinations" would be "permitted to appear in NEET-2". But that would be subject to seeking an option from the candidates concerned to "give up their candidature for NEET-1".
In other words, they cannot lay claim to their NEET-1 results in case their NEET-2 score fell short of expectations.
The court also said it would be open to the respondents - the CBSE and the Medical Council of India - to reschedule the date for NEET-2, if necessary.

Well the paper was a standard AIPMT paper with not many surprises.


Paper was overall a balanced paper with almost equal number of questions from class XI and XII Syllabus. About 18 questions were very easy, 19 almost standard questions which students practices from coaching modules and 8 questions which were actually lengthy or tough for the students.
A score of 115+ is a good score.


Chemistry was tougher than usual AIPMT papers. Both the calculative as well as questions from organic part were tough and way beyond NCERT level. Our expert found one question in paper to have 2 correct options.
A score of 120+ is a good score.

This was perhaps the easiest one and we expect students to score very well here. Almost all questions were NCERT based. Botany was very easy. Good students will be scoring 300+ here.
