The questions that come in the JEE Main can be put into three categories easy, moderate, and difficult. Generally, the easy ones are simple and straight forward, and the difficult ones mostly assess the analytical skills and conceptual understanding of the students. Subject wise, it has been noticed that the mathematics section is always the toughest and the chemistry section is generally the easiest, leaving physics somewhere in between. JEE Mains is comparatively easier than JEE Advanced.
