JEE Adv last 7 years paper analysis

JEE Advanced has been constantly looking to update and enhance the level of the examinations. In general, JEE Advanced tries to test your understanding of the application of concepts and higher-order thinking. Every year they come up with some new challenges for you. So, to help you out with this, our team of subject matter experts have come up with the analysis of the last 7 years of JEE Advanced papers, wherein they have analyzed the level of the questions, the chapters of all subjects from which most questions are usually asked, and so on.

Generally, the level of questions asked in the Chemistry section is moderate and is the easiest section to do. The questions asked in the Physics section are tricky and difficult and require a deeper understanding of the concepts and their applications. So, you must have an absolute understanding of the concepts and their applications to attempt most of the questions. In the Maths section, the level of questions vary from moderately difficult to difficult almost every year.
