There were no surprises in store for students appearing for the IIT-Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) 2012 on Sunday 8th April. All three sections of the exam were said to be moderately difficult, as most found certain sections simple but others lengthy and tricky. "It was a mixed bag”, was the near-unanimous opinion. "The first paper was quite easy compared to previous year. The Mathematics section of the second paper was a bit lengthy and tricky although we could arrive at the right answer at the end.
All questions in Physics in the second paper rigorously tested our concepts," Lakshminarayan Seshadri, a student of CMR National Public School, said. As many as 5.06 lakh students appeared for the exam at 1,067 centres across the country for close to 9,590 seats in 15 IITs of the country. "The first paper was easy and simple. The second one was also not much difficult either, but the Mathematics section was a bit lengthy," said Kushal M. B., Vijaya Composite PU College. Experts, who evaluated the paper, seconded students opinion. "Physics section was easier than Mathematics. Some of the questions were interlinked and numerical were lengthy. There was no change in the pattern and the paper was easier than last year's”, said Chidanand M. N., physics professor.
As per the rulebook:
This year, the IITs have mandated that general category students get a minimum aggregate score of 35% and at least 10% in each of the individual sections for making it to the rank list. Similarly, OBC students must get at least 9% in individual sections and 31.5% in the overall score; for SC/STs, the minimum to be bagged in each section is 5% and 17.5% must be the minimum aggregate to be on the rank-list.
