According to Ajay Kumar Sharma, National Academic Director (Engineering), Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the overall Physics paper was easy and out of 25 questions 20 questions were based on theory and concepts and five questions were numerical based. The difficulty level of the Physics paper was quite similar to JEE Main held in January.
The paper was however lengthy and calculation based, claimed the director. Integer type of questions were calculation based.
Physics, however, as per Goprep (Gradeup) analysis, was moderately difficult. Students associated with Goprep found this section time consuming. “Scoring well in this section will be the key to a good percentile. Number of good attempts for this section is 14-16,” said a Goprep analysis.
