The majority of JEE Advanced aspirants consider Physics as one of the most difficult sections. Additionally, the paper analysis of JEE Advanced 2019 and other stats of the exams suggests that the Physics section was comparatively difficult to solve for many students. Therefore to excel in the physics section this year, all the aspirants need to work harder and put some extra effort. Apart from developing strong conceptual knowledge, they not only need to master the theoretical portion but also get a good command at the application of the involved concepts. Fast and accurate problem-solving capacity combined with a skill of good time management in the paper would be an important factor to score more in the exam. Thus, it is quite evident that it would be important to know how to master physics for JEE Advanced 2020.
A brief overview of the JEE Advanced exam pattern
Before we look at the various factors to master physics for JEE Advanced 2020, let us take a brief overview of the exam pattern as mentioned below:-
- The examination paper of JEE Advanced 2020 will have two question papers, namely paper 1 and paper 2.
- Both these papers will be compulsory and have a time limit of three hours for each paper. Each paper will have three separate sections for Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
- The JEE Advanced question papers will have objective type questions further segregated into multiple choice and/or numerical answer type questions and will test your comprehension, reasoning, and analytical abilities.
- Talking of the JEE Advanced 2020 Physics section, it will have approximately 20 objective type questions.
- There would be negative marking for incorrect answers as usual. However, the students should go through the “Instructions to Candidates” portion mentioned in the outermost page of the question paper to get assured about the details of the marking scheme. Additionally, you should also adhere to the other aspects of the instructions as mentioned in the question papers during the examination.
