JEE Main 2014 Review

JEE Main 2014 paper was conducted in offline mode on April 6th, 2014
Following the usual trend, chemistry section was easier as compared to maths and physics section.
The paper was overall a bit lengthy and calculative however it was easier than JEE Main 2013.

Chemistry : This section was the easiest. There were very few difficult questions. Most questions were directly picked up from NCERT. An average student can easily score above 80-90 in this subject.

Maths : This section was slightly tough and calculation demanding. Those who are aiming for top ranks should score not less than 100 in maths. If a candidate is cautious enough to avoid silly mistakes, then he/she can even score 120/120 in maths.

Physics : This section was the toughest. Those who didn't prepare well were bowled. Paper required calculations and was indeed conceptual. There was a large portion from Mechanics.

Overall : Those who have scored above 270 are likely to do well in JEE Advanced too unless they mess the paper. 300+ is outstanding. The highest marks are expected to go down (as compared to 345 last year). However, since the paper was simpler, the cutoff might go slightly up. The inclusion of Board's marks will have a significant effect in the ranks of students.

Those students who are aiming for an under 100 rank in JEE advanced should score not less than 300. Note that if your score is less than 300, then it doesn't mean that you can't get an under 100 rank in JEE Advanced. Take it the other way, if you have scored more than 300 in JEE Main, then it doesn't mean that you will get an under 100 rank in JEE Advanced.
If you performed well, then take it as an achievement and let your confidence go sky high. However, if you couldn't perform well, then don't panic. JEE Advanced is very different from JEE Main.
Even I couldn't do well in physics in JEE Main 2013 but that does not mean that I was weak in Physics. So keep calm and continue preparing for JEE Main.
PS : Please don't post comments regarding cut-off etc. I cannot give any comments. All I can say is that cut-off might be around 125 (That's a guess)
Also, I have no idea about rank v/s marks distribution for JEE Main and lastly, no comments on rank v/s college (NIT etc)

  1. the maths section seems to have borrowed heavily from coordinate geometry(though it was easy), was it like this last year or is the weight-age given to that topic increasing?
    NCERT has shown its importance again. I saw about 3 questions picked direcly from NCERT chemistry exercise questions converted to objecive.

    2. well,like aman,i didnt study for boards.just studied for boards in march.i was already done with pcm due to jee preps.I had already solved gmp(2012-2013) by December 2013.so as soon as I got resonance package in early January,i made up a plan and decided to finish it by February. but my plan got delayed,as it was vey exhaustive,so I finished in 8days after cbse boards ended.but it helped me a lot in mains specially in physics section

    3. oh ok, so it requires a lot of focus to complete quickly, i'll try that,
      how many chapters were you able to solve a day? (rough estimate)
      thanks alot Abhijeet

    4. Can anyone tell me which test series is good fiitjee or resonance. Also tell about rtpf of fiitjee and revision package of resonance ,I already have gmp.

    5. Pick up irodov only if you feel that you are not getting that "I know this topic completely" feeling.
      Otherwise, stick to revision packages.
      It would be a good idea to go to Kota if you live in a city nearby. It will definitely help but make sure that you are ready to stay away from your parents - because it may happen that you might feel lonely and so you may not be able to concentrate on studies and end up wasting this crucial time.
      For that integration question : If you are able to get the correct substitution at once, then go ahead - don't differentiate.
      If you are not so sure about getting the correct substitution, then leave that question and ensure that you come back to it in the end and differentiate all options (option B, then C, then A, then D)
