Numerical Type Questions 

This is the first time that JEE Main will have numerical value answer type questions. Subject experts feel that this may increase the difficulty level of the paper. However, as the time per question has increased from 2 minutes per question to 2.40 minutes per question, that will contribute to lowering the difficulty level.

MCQs will be for 4 marks. Negative marking of 1 mark will apply for MCQs. However numerical value answer type questions will not have any negative marking, the correct answer will get 4 marks like MCQs. Each of the two questions in the drawing test will be of 50 marks.

For Numerical Type Questions, Students cannot now go for substitution method or elimination method to solve these questions. As long as one has a firm grasp over the basics of all the topics, he or she can easily solve these questions without error. Numerical value answer type questions will contribute to 20% of the BE/B.Tech paper. Thus students aiming for the top ranks will have to get them right.
