JEE Main Maths Question Paper Online 2018 (16th April)

Planning to pursue engineering or architecture as a career? Then, you need to study meticulously to prepare for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). The examination is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). Paper 1 for engineering courses consists of three sections of 30 questions each – Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry.

If you think it is difficult to score high in the JEE Main Mathematics exam, you’re probably not the only one. Yes, it is a tough subject to prepare for, but it will take a lot of practice and thorough conceptual understanding to ace the Mathematics section of the JEE Main question paper. 

The Mathematics section in the JEE exam covers a wide range of topics, where you can study the basic concepts from the prescribed textbooks. However, being clear on the Mathematical concepts alone is not enough to score better. Here, you need to ensure rigorous and consistent practice so that you can minimise your mistakes and build confidence. 

Essentially, speed and accuracy are the keys to boosting your scores in the Mathematics section. And this can be achieved by solving numerous previous years’ question papers and JEE Main mock tests. Extramarks provides you with past years’ papers along with their solutions to make you more prepared for the exam than ever.

Tips to Score Well in JEE Main Mathematics

1) Concentrate on such topics which assure you of good marks in a short time frame. It is important to keep in mind that some chapters would not take much time in the preparation, and these should not be ignored in your preparation schedules. Trigonometry, Complex Numbers, Probability, Hyperbola, Parabola, Ellipse, and three-dimensional Geometry are the chapters which take less time but at the same time preparation of these chapters will boost your scoring and rank. 

2) Past years’ JEE Main paper analysis shows that more attention should be given to Vectors and 3-D in comparison to probability or indefinite integration as vectors and 3-D Geometry offer very less scope to the examiner as far as variety in the type of questions is concerned.
