Key lesson from analysis of JEE Mains 2016 Paper is that students should not leave modern physics, simple hydrocarbons, binomial theorem, vector algebra and complex numbers.
JEE (Main) 2016 were conducted on 3^{rd} April 2016 for students choosing to take this exam by offline mode at centers in 129 cities by Central Board of Secondary Education. This is the fourth edition of this Exam after wide ranging changes introduced in year 2013 by CBSE and Ministry of HRD. Around 12 Lakh students have taken this exam in offline and online modes.
JEE (Main) 2016 were conducted in two parts (Paper 1 and Paper 2).

Paper 1 was conducted from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm (for engineering)

Paper 2 for B. Arch. Candidates was conducted from 2 pm to 5 pm. (for B. Arch degrees)
Analysis of Paper 1
The paper pattern was same as last year and as last year there were 90 objective type questions with 4 marks weightage. Subject wise each subject had 30 questions of 120 marks and more detail of marks is described below:
Subject  XI  XII  Total Count of Question  No. Total Sum of Marks  
Number of Questions  Sum of Marks  Number of Questions  Sum of Marks
