JEE ADVANCED 2017 ANALYSIS

Well both the papers had 54 questions and maximum marks of 183. The partial marking was there this year also in multiple options correct answer type questions.

PHYSICS: Overall physics was the of medium difficulty level out of the three subjects. Paper-2 was more challenging. The new matching questions this year were easy.

CHEMISTRY: This year this should prove to be the most difficult section. Paper tested the application of concepts and scoring high in chemistry wont be easy

MATHEMATICS: It was easiest of all. Paper 1 was easier and paper 2 also was not much challenging. This should be the most scoring section this year.

Its clear that cutoff want be as low  as was in the last two years

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.

NEET 2017 ANAYSIS AND ANSWER KEY

To check the answer key please click on the links below

Physics Analysis
Paper was overall a balanced paper with almost equal number of questions from class XI (22/45)and XII (23/45)Syllabus.The paper had questions involving rigorous calculations. 
The above chart shows the break up of marks in terms of easy, medium and difficult.
In Code A , two questions Q.No. 8 and 26 had errors and none of the given options are correct.
In Q.No. 18 two options were same and both were correct.
In Q.No. 3 the ratio asked should have been the inverse of what was actually asked.
CHEMISTRY ANALYSIS
Chemistry was less calculative and more conceptual. Some questions specially in organic were way beyond the NCERT syllabus students study. Here 29/45 were from XII and 16/45 were from XI class syllabus. In terms of easy, medium and difficult the breakup is as shown below

BIOLOGY ANALYSIS
This was perhaps the easiest one and we expect students to score very well here. Paper was NCERT based though some questions were out of NCERT . Here 39/90 were from XII and 51/90 were from XI class syllabus.

NEET 2017: Last 14 Days Preparation Strategy

NEET 2017 is scheduled on 7 May. Students who aspire to become doctors are already into the last phase of their preparation.The last stage of preparation is the crucial juncture and it can make or break your performance in the exam.  Below are the few suggested guidelines from my side for your help:

1. Previous year papers: Well instead of trying the available mock tests of famous institutes or books it is wise to practice the previous year papers of actual AIPMT/NEET. Just try to attempt last five years paper in real test environment. Even you needn't attempt all papers if you have time crunch.This will help you in getting a feel of the examination, what to expect, how much to attempt, how not to waste time.

2. Identifying Your Scoring Areas(Crack the Biology Part): After practicing these papers you should have an idea about which topics you can and should focus to score marks.
Frankly speaking you don't have much time now to build up confidence over a topic which you have hardly studied till now so smartness suggests that instead of working on your weaknesses it is more wiser to work on strengths. Remember there's no sectional cutoff .Most of the students try to focus too much on Physics since they find it the most tough. If you are not scoring more than 100 in mock tests in physics, its better to give more time to biology and chemistry. Scoring 300 in biology is far easier than scoring 120 in Physics for such students

3. Work on Speed and Accuracy: NEET requires you to answer 180 questions in 180 minutes. So unlike JEE speed here is far more important. Plus you get penalized for incorrect answers so speed with accuracy is utmost needed to crack this exam. So in these last days always keep a watch on the clock while practicing questions. Don't get stuck on a question, if you don't know or can't sove it in a minute, leave that and move on. There is no negative marking for leaving a question.

4. Positive Attitude and Self Belief: Irrespective of how much you have studied and prepared till now, you have to maintain a positive attitude because worrying too much about what you haven't done won't improve your performance. 
Mostly XII appearing students because of Board examinations feel themselves not connected with objective pattern and many negative thoughts starts creeping in. Avoid all such negative thoughts and just believe in yourself. Remember these magical words "I CAN AND I WILL".

ALL THE BEST!!

JEE MAIN 2017 ANALYSIS

JEE MAIN 2017 offline paper was overall a balanced paper and was easier than the previous year's paper. Hence we expect cutoff to be higher by about 10 marks than previous year.
Last year the cutoff for ADVANCED eligibility was:
GENERAL : 100 Marks
OBC: 70 Marks
SC: 52 Marks
ST; 48 Marks

PHYSICS ANALYSIS: The paper was easy as compared to last year's paper. Paper had many direct and very less calculative questions. two questions (doppler in light and X rays) were beyond the prescribed syllabus.


Analysis of Physics Section

Physics this year was not the toughest section of the paper. The paper was easy as compared to last year's paper. Paper had many direct and very less calculative questions. two questions (doppler in light and X rays) were beyond the prescribed syllabus.So I feel a score of 80+ is a good score.

Analysis of Chemistry Section

The Physical Chemistry part was easier while the Organic part was much higher than the NCERT level.The questions from inorganic part were very few
.A score of 80+ is a good score.

Analysis of Mathematics Section

The paper was overall balanced and might be termed as the toughest section this year.Calculaus part was easy while the geometry questions involved lengthy calculations.  A score of 70+ is a good score.

(This analysis has been prepared in consultation with my colleagues at RG ACADEMY AJMER .)

CBSE CLASS XII BOARDS: HOW TO PREPARE FOR PHYSICS PAPER


CBSE class XII board examinations will be starting pretty soon and the PHYSICS paper is scheduled on 15 March. So in this special series designed to help you to prepare and score better in the Examinations, we are taking up the topic "How to prepare for Physics paper".

Students often get stressed about learning derivations and what to write, how much to write  in a given question. The problem gets aggravated because of so called preparation books which almost write complete chapter as suggested answers. To help you I am giving some suggestions based on my experiences.

 Know the Pattern
 All of you must have appeared for half yearly and pre-board examinations and most likely you are now aware of the pattern of the paper. To just be sure check the blue print and latest sample paper first. You can check them here.

Identify all the derivations and devices 
Just by looking down the syllabus and NCERT books first identify all the derivations and devices (like moving coil galvanometer, cyclotron, transistor as  amplifier,etc )working you need to remember. Just make a notes of all these in which you write only that much which is sufficient and can be written within the given time.To help you in how much to write just look at the marking schemes provided on CBSE website where each and every required details are listed out. You can  check the suggested marking schemes of previous year papers here.
This will give you tremendous confidence.

Don't write extra
Because of preparing and learning too much students tens to overwrite the answers giving unnecessary details and making answers lengthier and as a result fails to complete the paper. Many of my students have done this fault in past, so please don't write extra other than required.
For 1 mark: just write one word(if that's only asked) or 2-3 lines at max
For 2 marks: 3-4 lines at max
For 3 Marks- not more than half a page unless diagrams are involved.
For 5 Marks: 1 Page around but please check marking schemes to get an idea that what key points must be covered(Better to answer part wise and in points)

All diagrams must be drawn neatly and properly labelled.
For solving numericals please write the steps properly.Try to avoid shortcuts learnt for objective competitive examinations.

Go through Previous year papers
Go through at-least last three year papers as well as last year's compartment paper and try atleat one of them as mock test within time limit.

Good Luck!!!

460 MORE IIT SEATS THIS YEAR

SOURCE: TIMES OF INDIA

More engineering aspirants are likely to realise their dream of studying in the country's premier technology institutes this year, with the IITs readying to increase their intake by 460, taking the total number of seats to 11,032.

The seats will mostly be added in the new IITs. The IITs in Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad, Ropar, Jodhpur, Patna, Indore, Mandi and Jammu have sent proposals for an increase in intake to their respective senates and the Joint Entrance Examination Board.

The final increase in the number of seats for the 2017-18 academic year will be announced by the JEE board once the senates clear these proposals, which, say officials, is the most likely outcome.
