IITJEE 2010 Exam Analysis

Yesterday on 11th April, 2010, around 4.5 lakh students appeared for IITJEE 2010 entrance exam all over the nation. There were some major changes in the pattern of the examination.

Change in Pattern

Change of pattern of exam is very important to select the good talent. The change in pattern of the exam brings unpredictability and students who can think on the fly and has good IQ perform better as compared to those who slog a lot.

In last few years equal weight age was given to paper-1 and paper-2 but this year the trend has been broken. Paper-1 was for 252 marks where as paper-2 was only 237 marks with physics, chemistry and mathematics combined together. Also in paper-1 there was more number of questions in paper-2.

Paper-1 had 84 questions in all whereas paper-2 had only 57 questions. It means paper-1 had 47% more questions than paper-1. Why IIT would have done this? IMO, generally students get tired in paper-  and find it difficult to perform up to their abilities.

Another change was the partial marking in more than one choice correct type of questions. It was never there in IIT but this year you can get marks even if you could not tick all correct choice. [..]
