Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced 2021 Physics Question Paper-2

The tips to prepare for JEE Advanced 2021 Physics Question Paper-2 are given below: 

  • Studying from NCERT textbooks will help candidates in brushing up their concepts. Once done, they can refer to other reference books as well.
  • Since there are lots of formulae and equations in Physics, maintaining a separate notebook for them is advisable.
  • Approximately 65% questions come from Mechanics and Electromagnetism, which are completely conceptual topics and do not need students to learn formulae. Thus, candidates should prepare well and have a thorough understanding of these topics.
