Careers360: JEE Main 2015 offline mode of exam is over now. What is your overall analysis of the paper?
Anup Pandey: The JEE 2015 was moderate in terms of difficulty level as compared to the last year. More emphasis was on conceptual clarity and had a good mix of Theoretical and Numerical based questions across all the subjects.
Careers360: Please share a brief idea about the difficulty level of the exam?
Anup Pandey: The questions were of Moderate difficulty level. Many of the questions were conceptual, focusing primarily on the school curriculum - hence students who would have focused well in school would be able to do fairly well in the examination paper.
Careers360: What is your take on difficulty level of questions featured in JEE Main 2015 question paper and topics from which maximum numbers of questions were covered?
Anup Pandey: As I said, the difficulty level of questions was not too high rather most of them were on the lower side. Some of the questions were little tricky in terms of conceptual clarity. So, students who laid more focus in conceptual foundation must have done well. In Chemistry, no topic as such had any majority in their number. The questions were asked across all the topics. Similar is the case for Mathematics and Physics.
Careers360: How many students from your coaching institute have opted for the JEE Main 2015 offline mode? What is their feedback on the exam?

Careers360: Any special highlights of the exam you want to share with us?
