JEE Main Paper Analysis - Chemistry

Most of the Questions that were asked in Chemistry were theory-based and the maximum weightage was given to Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. Physical Chemistry forms a significant part of the question paper, however, this year had less weightage and included questions from Chemical Kinetics and the Structure of Atoms. Prominent topics like hydrocarbons, alcohol, phenol and ethers, general organic chemistry, d-block elements, and chemical bonding were asked from organic and inorganic chemistry in the morning shift.

In the evening shift, organic chemistry formed 10% of the paper, which means that only 10 questions were asked from organic chemistry and included topics such as GOC, alcohols, ether and phenols, amines, aldehydes, and ketones, aryl and alkyl halides mixed concept questions, biomolecules. Physical Chemistry included questions from the mole concept, thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, and ionic equilibrium, and inorganic chemistry had questions from coordination compounds, chemical bonding, and periodicity including some NCERT fact-based questions.
