Major changes as per JEE Advanced Paper Analysis 2018


The students’ review of JEE Advanced 2018 exam states that there were some major changes in the JEE Advanced question paper. Let’s discuss them below.


This year rather than the integer type questions, the students faced some Numerical Type questions. They were 8 in each section.


The answer to these questions should be rounded off to nearest second decimal place.


The marking scheme for these questions was: +3 marks for each correct answer and there was no negative marking.


The student attempted the question as there was no fear of negative marking but the 2nd point made all of them getting worried. The reason was the answers to be marked in the form of a decimal.


For example – If the answer to a question is 3 then they had to mark 3.00 instead of 3. It made many candidates tensed about their marked answers.
