Here is a concise trend analysis of JIPMER exam of 2017 and 2018.
JIPMER EXAM ANALYSIS 2017
The JIPMER exams are in two shifts – morning and afternoon. Some questions were not from NCERT and the level of difficulty remained from moderate to tough.
Many found the Physics paper to be difficult because of its length. There were too many calculation based questions in which students had to dedicate too much time. Some topics covered were from Thermodynamics, Optics, Nature Physics, Semiconductor and mechanics. This affects the overall results because there is no negative marking. So attempting each question is very important to get good marks.
In comparison to Physics paper, the chemistry exam was easier with only few difficult questions. Many questions were on the structure of biochemistry and some questions had too many calculations.
The questions were not from NCERT and the students had to tackle some moderate to tough questions. In fact, most of the questions were theoretical. In the afternoon paper, the questions were from NCERT but were difficult to solve.
The English language and comprehension paper was very easy for students to complete well before time.
LOGICAL & QUANTITATIVE REASONING:
The questions in this paper were of moderate to hard level. There were a lot of English language questions with only 7-8 questions left for reasoning. If a student has practiced well all types of questions then solving any type of question becomes easier.
JIPMER EXAM ANALYSIS 2018
In 2018, the JIPMER exam had fewer lengthy questions. English language and comprehension was very easy to score but so was Biology as compared to other subjects. Let’s take a look at a detailed analysis of JIPMER 2018.
In this exam, 8-10 questions were specifically theorem solving questions. Question on dielectric, force dimensional formulae, electrostatics graph – were some topics that were covered. So students who had practiced solving problems quickly would have been to answer and finish Physics paper on time.
Chemistry questions came directly from NCERT but some questions were difficult. Questions on composition of cellulose, balancing and correct reaction were included. Few questions were absolutely new so students who had studied thoroughly would have been able to solve all questions correctly.
For some students, the Biology exam questions were not from NCERT and therefore they found these questions difficult. Topics that were covered were – bio molecule, Pedigree, digestion, actin filaments, etc. Students who were confident of attempting all questions said that about 50% questions were of moderate level.
English language was again the most scoring subject. Students with strong vocabulary could easily score well.
LOGICAL & QUANTITATIVE REASONING:
Logical and quantitative reasoning was another scoring subject for students of both the shifts. The level of difficulty was from easy to moderate as 8 out of 10 questions were very easy to attempt.
The previous years’ analysis proves that each subject requires thorough practice and understanding of each topic to successfully pass JIPMER 2019 exam. Attempting each question requires precise time management and focus which can only come with daily practice from good reference books.
