In the words of Professor Uday Nath Mishra, “Expected cut off is 80(+-5%) marks out of 360. The paper was moderate and based on NCERT. Chemistry was the most lengthy. Organic chemistry was found more difficult, physical chemistry was more numerical based, whereas, inorganic chemistry was easy. Maths was mostly based on class 12 syllabus and physics was based on class 11 syllabus”.
In 2017, the cut-off for JEE Main was stagnant at 81. This is for the general category candidates. Students of SC, ST and OBC, enjoyed the cut-off at 32, 27 and 49 respectively.
Talking about the question papers being tough or moderate or easy, there have been mixed reactions from the candidates. If some students’ opinions are to be counted, the physics and mathematics papers were tough. Others have reacted with pleasure as the questions were relatively easier. Physics paper was pretty much tough and tiring, while questions from Mathematics were bit lengthy.
