3.2 lakh students across the country gave the IITJEE 2008 exam today, and quite naturally, everyone’s quite anxious to know the solutions. So here you go:
It’s a zipped file, approximately 900 KB in size, containing the PDF of both the papers. The first paper is from Narayana IIT Academy, while the second paper is from dear old Career Launcher. I’d have given both from Career Launcher, in fact, but their first paper is a seems to be a scanned version which is larger in size, so for the sake of a faster download I went in for the Narayana one. Nobody else, other than Career Launcher, has got BOTH the papers out. :D
Overall, the paper was pretty OK – the paper that is, not my performance. Tougher than last year, yes. I don’t expect any fireworks with my result, none at all. I’ll be more than happy just if I somehow scrape through to extended merit list. I’m NOT going to give a final comment on my performance, in case I end up looking silly later. :P Since this year (like last year) IIT JEE subject cutoffs would be decided by the bottom 20% students’ marks; therefore, the question is not about clearing the cutoffs in each subject, but getting higher marks than others OVERALL.
It’s just started. Many more exams to go… :s
Update: In case you really really really want to view Career Launcher’s IITJEE 2008 Paper 1 solutions, but don’t want to download it either, you can view it online on Scribd by clicking here.
Update 2: The cut-off is expected to be around 160, according to this news report in the Economic Times on IIT JEE 2008. Plus, some words from the Chairman of IIT Kharagpur.
