Q: Please throw some light on the JEE Main 2013 question paper.
A: The JEE Main 2013 exam question paper was fairly simple and easy. Math and Chemistry areas were straightforward and candidates could solve them effortlessly. Physics on the other hand was above average in terms of toughness and quality.
Q: Was there any unexpected surprise in the questions of JEE Main 2013?
A: Though the questions were mostly within the syllabus of JEE Main and not JEE Advanced, we observed that one question from Chemistry section was out of syllabus. Some questions had erroneous options as well. While one question had all four correct options, a couple of other questions’ all the four options were wrong.
Q: What is the expected cut off according to you for the JEE Main 2013 exam?

While you can gain four marks by answering a question correctly but with each incorrect answer, you will lose a mark which can thoroughly hamper your score.

Q: What about those who have already taken the JEE Main 2013 exam in the offline format?
A: After following the answer key if you see that you will get more than 125 marks, you should continue the preparation for JEE Advanced 2013 paper. In case you don’t, you should not lose hope and start the preparation with new vigour for next year’s JEE Main exam.
