Mathematics – What to expect in JEE (main) 2015


“The best preparation for tomorrow is to do today’s work superbly well.” – William Osler


Before preparing of any entrance test, it is wise to have a look at the previous year papers and check if there are any indicators on what we should be expecting in the next edition of the test.  This gives us the opportunity to plan our preparation.

For this purpose, DoPrep has come out with an exhaustive exam analysis of JEE (main) based on JEE (main) 2013 and JEE (main) 2014 papers.


The above pie-chart indicates the most probable number of questions from a particular branch that can be asked in JEE (main) 2015.

We all know that segregation of each question to a particular branch or chapter or concept is practically impossible as there are numerous number of questions which employ applications of multiple concepts across different chapters and branch. Taking this into account, we say that permissible error in the number of questions for each branch is ±2.

These numbers indicate that almost 37% to 50% of the question paper is comprised of Algebra questions and equal weightage of almost 20% to 30% is given to Calculus and Analytical Geometry. The remaining 3% to 10% questions belong to Trigonometry.

So plan your preparation accordingly.
