This year NTA organized JEE Mains, and it broke all the trends and pattern of previous years. The reason is simple NTA had to conduct the papers in 8 different slots. And each paper has to be different from other paper. Papers can be different on their difficulty level or the number of questions from a chapter.
I have tried to analyze the pattern of Paper 1. In this, I have used the feedback of my students who appeared in different shifts and my fellow faculties. I have summarized the analysis below.
JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 9 January – 1st Shift
When I first talked to a few students, I found that the first Paper was not so difficult. According to the expert, the difficulty level was 3.9. You will see a lot of questions from previous Year Papers. Mathematics paper was part moderate and part strenuous. Physics paper was medium level but time taking. Chemistry paper was Easy but lengthy.
JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 9 January – 2nd Shift
The difficulty level of the Paper was 3.93 as per the experts. A lot of students found this paper lengthy thus it will take 172 minutes in an ideal situation. Mathematics paper was moderate but time-consuming and took 37% time. Physics paper was Difficult and lengthy, so it will take 36% of the time. Chemistry was natural it should take 27% of your time.

JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 10 January – 1st Shift
The difficulty level of the paper was 3.8, which is moderate. In an ideal situation, it will take 157 minutes to complete the paper. Mathematics paper was most difficult of the three subjects. Physics was not very difficult but the most time-consuming section. And like most of the time, Chemistry was the easiest part.
JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 10 January – 2nd Shift
The difficulty level of the paper is 4.5. Highest among all the papers. If everything goes right, you will need 160 minutes to solve the paper. This was the most robust paper of all the shifts. The Toughest section was Physics in which my students took almost 36 % time. Mathematics was the most time taking part which took 38% of the time. The most comfortable section was Chemistry, and it took only 26% of the time.

JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 11 January – 1st Shift
The difficulty level of the Paper is 3.9. An ideal student will take around 158 minutes. Chemistry was natural and scoring, and it took about 27% of your time. Physics was challenging but not lengthy. It can take 36% of your time. Maths paper was not difficult but lengthy and time taking. It can take 37% of the total time.
JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 11 January – 2nd Shift
The difficulty level of the paper is 4 out of 5. An ideal student will take 159 minutes. Chemistry will take 33%, Physics paper will take 35%, and Mathematics will receive 32% of the total time.
Maths paper was moderate. Physics was difficult & time taking, but the chemistry was most comfortable and also very scoring.

JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 12 January – 1st Shift
An ideal student will take around 162 minutes to solve the paper. Chemistry will take about 30%, Physics paper will receive 28%, and Mathematics will take 42% of your time.
Experts are saying the difficulty level was 4.33. The difficulty level of the paper was moderate. Maths Paper was most difficult. Physics was instead time-consuming than difficult, and a most accessible section was Chemistry.
JEE Main 2019: Analysis of Paper I – 12 January – 2nd Shift
Students found the difficulty level of the paper in 2nd shift of 12th January moderate.
Experts say the difficulty level of the paper is 3.67 out of 5. An ideal student should take around 155 minutes to solve the paper.
Chemistry paper you will need 28 %, in Physics paper you will need 32% and as usual Mathematics paper will require 40 %.
In short, Maths was toughest; thus it needed more time. Physics was not difficult but, and the most accessible section was Chemistry.
What was common in all the papers?
In all these eight papers you can find questions from particular 20 chapters again and again. These are the chapters which have appeared almost every time in previous year papers.
Let’s start with Chemistry. All eight papers contain questions from Solutions and Colligative Properties, Nuclear and Surface Chemistry, General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Metals (Metallurgy) and last but not the least Practical and Environmental Chemistry
In Mathematics the recurring chapters were Binomial Theorem, Complex Numbers, Matrices and Determinants, Probability, Application of Derivatives, Indefinite Integration, Definite Integration, Point and Straight Line, Circle, Three Dimensional Geometrical System, Statistics.
Common Chapters in Physics are Electrostatics, Current Electricity, Ray Optics, Photoelectric Effect, and Electromagnetic Waves.
According to the students questions in Maths paper of JEE Mains Paper II were from Previous Year. The NTA conducted the Paper II (for B. Arch) on day 1 (January 8) in two shifts at 384 centers across the nation. Six centers were outside the country for students who are living with their guardian outside the country.

Analysis of JEE Main 2018 Paper:
JEE Main paper of the last year was not tricky but moderate level.
A lot of questions were from the previous year Papers.
Students also said that Physics was a bit difficult and Maths paper was quite comfortable. In the same time, there were a few errors in questions asked in the Physics section.
