JEE Advanced: Students find math and physics quite difficult in UP’s Lucknow


Most of the students who participated in the online Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2022 held at several centers in Lucknow on Sunday said that maths and physics were quite difficult compared to chemistry. They also claimed that the document was very long. The exam was conducted in two shifts where the first test took place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and the second test took place from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“The math test was long and tricky. Physics was difficult too, having only one modern physics question. Matching the following parts in physics was also difficult,” said Piyush Gupta, a student who took the exam at a center in Kursi Road. It scored 88 percentiles in the sector but seemed uncertain about the forward results.

Echoing a similar view, fellow student Roop Verma said, “Apart from the fact that math is tricky and time-consuming, inorganic chemistry was also difficult. I couldn’t attempt a few questions.

“Most of the questions in the first article were about arithmetic and complex numbers, which is very difficult and time-consuming. I’m not sure about the results,” said Yash Gupta, another student outside an exam center, who also scored 88 percentiles in the main course held earlier this year.

The second assignment was more difficult, students say

Although the chemistry relieved most of the students, the mathematics and physics of the second assignment continued to confuse them. Many students said that the second test was more difficult than the first. They said they were worried about the negative marking.

“The math was also difficult in the second assignment and I don’t think I will be able to do it this time,” said Shailendra Kumar who took the exam at a center near Tedhi Pulia.

“The second article was much more difficult than the first. I’m not sure of the results. I’m waiting for the cut,” said Kartikesh Singh and Ujjawal Gupta, who both scored 98.7 percentiles in the sector.

“Almost 60% of the paper in the industry is formula-based. However, in JEE advanced, most of the questions are conceptual. It took me 30 minutes to answer one question. Negative marking was one of the things most students worried about,” said Arsh Khan, who scored 92 percentile in the sector.

The JEE Advanced question paper included questions designed by IIT-Bombay to test the understanding, reasoning and analytical skills of IIT aspirants. There were multiple choice questions with either one correct answer or multiple correct answers.
