How to Approach JEE Main 2022 Question Paper? Section-wise Ideal Attempts

With the increasing competition in JEE Main, it is a must for the candidates to set specific targets. Here are some section-wise tips which can assist you in finding the accurate paper attempting approach:

  • Mathematics: Mathematics level has been easy to moderate for 3 years and topics like Matrices, Vector 3D, and Determinants are some of the high-scoring topics.
    • A person is likely to score 45-50 marks if he/she attempts 20 questions in Mathematics with 60% accuracy provided the candidate attempts all integer questions(non-negative questions).
    • More emphasis should be laid on attempting integer questions rather than single-choice questions.
  • Physics: For the last 5 years, Physics has been the toughest section. The section includes a lot of lengthy questions. The numerical part of the paper is generally asked from the 11th standard whereas the conceptual part is mostly from the 12th standard.
    • With a 70% accuracy, if a candidate attempts 15 questions of the Physics section, he/she can score more than 30 marks.
  • Chemistry: The Chemistry section is believed to be the easiest one where organic and inorganic questions are more of a conceptual type. These questions should be given more focus due to direct correspondence with respective options.
    • If a candidate is able to attempt 22 Chemistry questions with 80% accuracy, he/she can score more than 60 marks.

Difference Between JEE Main and JEE Advanced

JEE Main is the eligibility test for appearing in JEE Advanced examination. Some of the highlights with respect to how the two exams differ from each other have been tabulated below:

Particulars JEE Main JEE Advanced
Number of Sessions/ Phases 2 (June and July) 1
Number of Attempts 3 (Attempting both the sessions [June and July] of the same year is counted as 1 attempt) 2
Candidates Appearing (2021) 9,39,008 (all sessions) 2,50,000

Eligibility Qualified Class XII from a recognized Government Organization Ranked among top 2,50,000 JEE Main rank holders
Number of Papers 3 (B.E./B.Tech/ B.Arch/ B.Planning) 2 [Paper 1 & Paper 2]
Conducting Authority JEE Apex Board (JAB) Indian Institute of Technology (on rotational basis)
  • Conducting Body: For 2022 and 2023, JEE Main will be conducted by JEE Apex Board (JAB) and JEE Advanced by JAB-IIT. Earlier, JEE Main was conducted by NTA and JEE Advanced is held by one of the seven Zonal Coordinating (ZC) IITs on a rotational basis, under the guidance of JAB every year.
  • Eligibility: Top 2.50 Lakh JEE Main qualifying candidates are eligible to appear for the test. NTA defines the JEE Main eligibility on specific criteria such as qualifying exams, passing marks, etc.
  • Number of Attempts: A student can appear for JEE Main for 3 consecutive years while for JEE Advanced, he/she can appear for only 2 consecutive times.
  • Exam Pattern: NTA defines the exam pattern for JEE Main, whereas there is no fixed pattern for JEE Advanced.
  • Syllabus: Unlike JEE Main, JEE Advanced includes a few extra topics apart from Class XII syllabus. JEE Main does not include some of the topics of JEE Advanced, For e.g. Thermal Physics is included in JEE Advanced but is not asked in JEE Main. Similarly, Electrochemistry is included in JEE Advanced but not in JEE Main.
  • Difficulty Level: JEE Main is considered to be easier than JEE Advanced as it only tests the candidates on the syllabus of Class XI and XII. But the competition is very high in JEE Main. However, good marks are required in JEE Main so that one can be in the top 2,50,000 rank holders in order to appear for JEE Advanced.
