The offline exam of the JEE Main 2013 Paper 1 is now over. For all the engineering aspirants this was one exam that really mattered the most. We, at FaaDoOEngineers.com hope that you wrote the paper well.
Now, because the paper is over, it is time to analyze what it was all about. The earliest reports that are trickling in suggest that this year the JEE Paper 1 wasn't much different from last year's AIEEE. Last year, our team has concluded that 63% of the students found the paper difficult and only 12% found it easy. The rest found it to be moderate. Let us look at the earliest reactions that are trickling in from across the country.
Our correspondent, Vipul Chaudhary was at one of the coolest examination centers - DPS RK Puram. Anamika, a student of a top school from Delhi suggested that the paper was as easy as last year. When Vipul asked her if she expected to qualify for the JEE Advanced exam, she snapped back and said, " I am going to study Computer Science at IIT Bombay!".
But not everyone was as confident as her. Anand, a poor student from a government school was simply not happy with the way he wrote his JEE. He said that he had broken his family's dreams and was surely not going to make his way to a NIT. Not everyone is lucky enough to get the costliest coaching facilities.
There were many others who simply suggested that the next big target was the Advanced exam and that they would hopefully qualify for it. Overall, the picture in New Delhi was that of positivism.
Mumbai students have given a resounding thumbs up to this new pattern of examination. They say not long back in the past, all admissions in Maharashtra were based on the PCM marks. The inclusion of 40% weightage to board exams this year has only improved their chances of getting into the best colleges. The emphasis on board exams has always been higher in this part of the country.
Over all, the feeling is that of satisfaction. One can expect much better performance from Maharashtra students this year.
Chennai has again given a resounding thumbs up to the new pattern. Srinivasan, a student who dropped one year to prepare for IIT is confident that he will score enough marks to land in the top 30,000. This will ensure that he gets a crack at JEE Advanced. Prasanna, a class 12th student of KV, IIT Madras was sure of his success. He says, I have spent all my life in this school located right in the middle of IIT Madras. I am sure I will make it to the department of chemical engineering. JEE Mains is just a stepping stone.
There were others who had looks of dejection but those faces were far and between.
Kolkattans are never really known for their technical expertise and that was very much on display here. A lot of faces wore a look of uneasiness. Parents had stayed back for 3 hours for their children to come out of the exam rooms. Some had tears in their eyes - the pain of broken dreams while others wore expressions of joy.
Overall the mood in Kolkata seemed to be that of resigned fate. Not many expect to make the cut for the premier IITs.
That sums up our experience of how the mood is across the 4 major metros. Keep coming back to this article to see how students in other cities are reacting to this years' JEE.
We will soon come out with the detailed subject wise and topic wise analysis.
