Weightage of various topics in IIT JEE Main 2014 (Paper-1) Analysis

Analysis What are the important topics/chapters in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics for IIT JEE Main 2014? What will be the weightage of Organic Chemistry this year? Shall I study more Physical Chemistry than Organic Chemistry? Algebra would be asked more, compared to Trignometry in Mathematics in JEE Main 2014? Would maximum questions be asked from Optics rather than Mechanics in IIT JEE Main 2014 i.e. Paper-1? Have you ever wondered that what will be the weightage of various topics in IIT JEE Main 2014 (Paper-1) ?

  1. Nilesh Raut says

    Sir, thank you for the above weightage analysis.

    I am nios student. i was unaware of jee main. luckily dates got extended and i could take admission.

    now i dont have books and my 12th 50% portion is done. which books should i refer and at what topics should i concentrate to score, as less time is left.

    2nd problem is that my nios exams too are in april.

    3rd while filling up form i was unable to enter my roll no.( which i have already got). even after board was selected and every details was filled up. is it because of open schooling board? and it says 40% weightage of board marks so how will they get my marks when i cant enter my roll no. please explain whole process of 40:60 ratio till my admission to engg college.

  2. lokesh says

    Hi Nilesh,

    I would strongly recommend you to go by the expected weightage of the topics as per given in the post. Refer standard books alone. Moreover, as you don’t have much time, so religiously give more time to the topics with more weightage.
    Managing both the exams will be a tough task for you though, but don’t lose hope. Go with proper Time Management and study accordingly.
    Actually, for JEE Main 2014, the overall rank will be given to the students on the basis of All India Ranks calculated with the JEE main 2014 Scores and normalized marks of Class XII in the ratio 60:40. This is the crux of the this concept.

  6. mohd imran says

    sir..i m also a student belong to those student who takes more tention than doing …..i want to ask is any 1 elligible to conduct jee main if an accident occur wid him as he couldnot attend 12 class exam in march 2014 but complete it in 2015 .and what percentage should be needed in 12 to get attend in jee main.

    • Anonymous says

      If you are not able to give 2014 Boards you cannot sit in JEE mains. JEE mains requires a passing percentage in qualifying exam ( 12th boards in this case ).
      Any percentage of marks will do but your rank will improve a lot if you score atleast 90%+ in class 12th as 40% weightage is given to 12th marks also.

  7. shashi bhushan says

    the highest average marks obtained in CBSE board is almost 98% but in BSEB board it is just 84-86%.
    It means there is unequality in boards.Then how a weightage of 40% will added to the marks of mains exams.From this process of selection,the students of BSEB boards and other boards where the marks are not obtained as BSEB board will always came after the students of BSEB board.It also means that the aspirants for jee mains has to select CBSE board for better rank!
    please say something about this,i am too tensed due to this process because i am a student of bseb board and what will the safe rank for nit for a general category student if the student got 80% marks in bseb board exams of 12th.

    • N Sesha Sai Kumar says

      Dear Bhushan

      Just follow this example : The cost of a burger in US is about $1. In India it is about Rs. 50. i.e., $ 1 in US = Rs. 50 in India. If we have to spend Rs. 3000 here, US $ required are only 60. The variation is only in numericals but they are equivalent. In the same way, as per your data, 98% in CBSE is equivalent to 86% in BSEB. So 1st rank in CBSE for 98% = 1st rank in BSEB for 86%.

      Now I think you got it clear. No need to get tensed. You do your job perfectly right. Try to score a good percentage so that even after normalization you do deserve a good rank.

      I anticipate your good performance.

  8. PK says

    if any candidate scored 65 % in std 12th hsc board exams 2013-14 (Maharashtra State Board).
    so, how much he should score in Jee mains 2014 for taking admission in Computer Branch. in better colleges of pune.

    Hope U will reply me on my given Email Id

    sir plzzzz help

  9. Ashutosh says

    Sir if i get 50%+(average) in Board Exams but i fail to score 50+ in Physics or Chemistry then will i be eligible for Jee Main?

  10. neha says

    • N Sesha Sai Kumar says

      Go through the sample computer based online exams ( 4 in number ) in the link provided here


      See, every exam has its own cons and pros. According to CBSE Board, JEE Mains should carry atleast 35% of NCERT based questions. This amounts to 35/100 * 360 = 126 marks / 4 = 30 questions overall. So, 10 questions minimum from each subject will be right from NCERT books itself. So stay cool. Go through 2009 to 2013 QP’s and lol! you can observe some questions given in the same way, particularly, in chemistry like from solid state, tests for carbohydrates, isomerism both in organic and co-ord. chem, etc.,. In mathematics regarding matrices, statistics, prob., 3D, Vectors, [x] related any problems etc.,. also the same in physics.
      So, do your preparation smartly. You are done. Gettings marks in JEE Mains is rather simple now a days.
      For further guidance do ring me up 8 143 66 2012 (Vijayawada, AP ).

  11. Manisha says

    sir plz can u tell me the important chapters for jee-mains just for geting about 125-140 marks in mains as because i hav exam on 11th and there is a lot to prepare and my parents are expecting too much from me.. and I don want to let them down . hope you are understanding my problem..
    pl reply as soon as possible.. I’l b greatful for your kind help..

  12. vikash kumar sahu says

    Can anyone tell me : is there any concepts required in physics for jee mains or only formula based questions they will ask?

    • N Sesha Sai Kumar says

      Dear Sahu,

      I advice you to go through the way how the questions are asked in Physics from 2009 to 2013 QP’s, fiit jee or any other site along with solutions. You will observe that apart from 3 – 4 questions which require higher order thinking skills rest of the paper is simply the concepts asked in a different way from CBSE regular Board paper. The same concept asked in one year may differ slightly the next year but to recognise it you need to first understand the question. The questions are just like magic. Everything lies in the question. Understanding the question is very important. 40% of the questions are formula based, 40% are graph based, concept based, skill based, 20% are HOTs.

      Do prepare smartly. Avoid tension. Dont refer to too many books. HC Verma is good but not as much as your NCERT books.
