IIT-JEE: Students say they couldn't attempt all questions

Most students had two major complaints, the length of the paper in the morning session and the weightage of marks given to some questions in the afternoon. Saketh, an IIT aspirant, said both he and several of his friends had trouble completing Paper 1 on time.

“All of a sudden, this year the number of questions were increased to 80 odd from 50 in previous years. Although the pattern of JEE papers change each year, the length was consistent,” he said. Saketh added that he found the Maths paper in particular was tough but aced Paper 2.

Ashwin Anil Kamath, a student who appeared for the entrance at Malleshwaram’s MES College seconded Saketh’s opinion and said that he was not able to complete Paper 1 on time. But, he also questioned the allotment of marks in different sections in the afternoon session (Paper 2).

“Paper 2 was predictable but the allotment of marks was too high,” Ashwin complained. Yashas, another student too complained about the weightage of marks in Paper 2 and echoed the complaints of many other students. “Overall I am happy with my performance but fell short on time for Maths,” he said.
