JEE Main Question Paper 2017 Set A

The course you choose to pursue after 10+2 holds a lot of importance as it is the first step towards a bright career. Students aspiring to pursue engineering need to appear for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main conducted by the National Testing Agency. 

To secure a seat in India’s top engineering colleges, including IITs, you must prepare for the JEE Main with utmost dedication and hard work. Apart from studying from the recommended texts and online sources, answering the sample papers and mock tests takes your preparation to the next level.

The JEE Main question paper consists of 90 questions divided into three sections, covering concepts from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

  • Physics- The Physics section includes numerical and theoretical questions from the prescribed syllabus. Mostly, you will get questions related to graphs, detailed calculations, and derivations. Thus, it becomes essential to learn these concepts thoroughly.
  • Chemistry- The Chemistry section also includes several theoretical and numerical questions. It is a wise step to go through the JEE Main syllabus comprehensively to explore the important topics in detail.
  • Mathematics- Many students often face the most difficulty while attempting this section. So, you need to be clear with the concepts of trigonometry, mathematical theorems, integration and differentiation, geometry, and more.
