No negative marking in JEE Advanced paper-I

The IITs are known for throwing surprises. This year, after a long time, there was no negative marking for wrong answers in paper-I for the Joint Entrance Exam (Advanced) conducted on Sunday. This was balanced out by setting an easier paper-II, but with negative marks.

Earlier, it was easier to arrive at the answer by eliminating the wrong ones. Paper-I was reminiscent of the old JEE subjective
question papers in terms of difficulty level. It was tricky and lengthy.
