Question 1. Is Physics Easy in JEE Advanced?
Answer: According to students, the Physics part in JEE Advanced is moderately difficult. Students find Maths the most difficult part followed by chemistry. 

Question 2. Are NCERT books enough for cracking JEE Advanced?
Answer: No, because JEE Advanced asks conceptual questions and it is important for students to practice with reference books, JEE Advanced Mock Tests, and JEE Advanced Previous Year's Papers. Therefore, NCERT books can be basic-level references but for advanced-level preparation, other resources are essential.

Question 3. What are the easy topics in Physics for JEE Advanced 2023?
Answer: The following topics are considered easy by students: 

  1. Modern physics
  2. Current electricity
  3. Newton's laws of motion
  4. Oscillations and sound
  5. Heat and thermodynamics

Question 4. I have given JEE Mains in 2022. Am I eligible to apply for JEE Advanced?
Answer: If you fulfill the JEE Advanced 2023 eligibility criteria and you are among the top 2,50,000 scorers in JEE Mains 2022, you can apply for JEE Advanced 2023. 

Question 5. Will JEE Advanced 2023 be easy?
Answer: Considering the level of competition in JEE Advanced, and it being a national-level engineering entrance exam and second level of the JEE exam, it will not be wrong to say that JEE Advanced is not intended to be an easy exam. It is really tough to crack but with the right preparation strategy, nothing is impossible.
