BH Ramakrishna Aspirants from the state faced grueling moments while answering tough questions in JEE Advanced, that was held on Sunday. Many questions were said to be excruciating and complex and beyond the comprehending levels. JEE Advanced is the key exam for admission into first year engineering courses in the prestigious IITs and ISM-Dhanbad. A total of 1,50,000 selected students have appeared for the exam and out of them more than 18,000 were from our state. A little over 7,000 students have taken the exam from the twin cities. "Mathematics paper II was tougher than all other papers. Physics paper I was unusually simple but some of the questions in Chemistry appeared rather hard" Harshita Vemulapalli, who wrote the exam in Nellore said. But experts said both Physics and Chemistry were balanced and questions were asked from all the lessons in the typical IIT way. "Most of our guys concentrate only on Organic Chemistry presuming that it would be set tough. In fact, questions were given from Inorganic and Physical Chemistry in equal measure" Shankar, senior faculty at Sri Chaitanya Institutes told The Hans India. But Maths is likely to thwart the chances of many from the students. "Questions on Differential Calculus, 3-D Vectors, Probability were flinty and very much difficult to crack. The questions were also not straight. Our students can answer the questions which are straight and having numbers quickly. If they are lengthy, they can't" Dr Krishna Chaitanya, Director of Nano Academy told the Hans India. 'The paper was also slightly confusing in a sense that the Hindi version of questions were also clubbed with English version. The look was rather confusing' he added. "In a nutshell, students with CBSE syllabus will have a slightly advantage over our students. Their methodology is somewhat different. They can do maths in a better way" Krishna Chaitanya added. "Negative marking may also spell doom for our aspirants. Nearly 65-75 per cent questions were with negative marking whereas it was just around 35 per cent last year and in 2011. This will definitely hit hard on our students and the rankings may go beyond expected levels" Madhusudhan of IIT Academy analyzed. With the two-tier exam process that has been announced, students who were among 1,50,000 candidates in JEE (Main) will be eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) provided they fall in the Top 20 percentile in their respective boards' exams. Currently there are 9647 undergraduate seats in 15 IITs, IT-BHU and ISM Dhanbad while the number of undergraduate seats in the 30 NITs of the country is 15,678 including the seats in the new ones. The results of the JEE Advanced exam will be declared on June 23.
