In total, JEE Advanced had to 186 questions divided into two parts. Based on the students’ reaction, the JEE Advanced paper I was tougher as compared to paper II. In paper 1, chemistry and mathematics were moderately difficult, and Physics was reportedly the most difficult section. In paper II, Physics questions were more concept based and covered all chapters. In Mathematics, there were more questions from Calculus and Algebra. In Chemistry, questions from all chapters were covered and were easy.
“As per students in physics questions from all chapter of class 11 and 12 were asked. In mathematics, there were more questions from algebra and coordinate geometry. In chemistry, few questions on organic chemistry as compared to inorganic and physical chemistry,” informed Rames Batlish, head, FITJEE Noida.
According to Navin C Joshi, academic head and VP (JEE and NEET), Gradeup, “The overall difficulty level of paper 1 was moderate. The Physics section was of moderate difficulty, Maths was moderate but lengthy, while Chemistry was the easiest of the three sections. A few questions asked in Physics were based on the conceptual understanding of the topics. There were many application based questions asked on this subject.”
The overall difficulty level of JEE Advanced paper 2 was Moderate, as per Joshi. “As per the feedback received from the students, the Mathematics section was difficult, however, relatively easier than paper 1. Questions were highly conceptual and required good time management skills. The Chemistry section was easy and in line with the trend, while the Physics section was moderate and somewhat easier than Paper 1,” Joshi added.
A total of 54 questions were asked in the JEE Advanced 2019 paper I with the breakdown as follows:

Preference I: Candidates having higher positive marks will be awarded higher rank.
Preference II: Higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Mathematics.
Preference II: higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Physics.
This year, the cut-off for the unreserved category for JEE Advanced was 89.754 NTA score and for EWS and OBC students it was 78.217 and 74.316 respectively. For those from SC and ST category, a score of 74.316 and 54.012 respectively in JEE Main would make them eligible for JEE Advanced and for PwD category students the same is 0.113.
