What Is JEE Advanced?
Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) – Advanced is an entrance exam conducted annually for admission into 23 various IITs across the country. It is mandatory for candidates to pass the JEE Main entrance exam to appear for the JEE Advanced exam. While JEE Main is conducted by the NTA to facilitate admission to various NITs, IIITs, GFTIs and other engineering colleges in the country, JEE Advanced is conducted by one of the seven zonal IITs under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board.
Passing the eligibility criteria for JEE Advanced required students to be among the top 2,50,000 rankers of the JEE Main exam, have a competitively good score in Class 12 board exams, and clear other age and category oriented criteria.

JEE Advanced demands a wellstructured study plan. It requires students to improve their academic knowledge along with other skills such as analytical skills, time management, examtaking strategy and situational intelligence. Few general tips to crack JEE Advanced 2021 are:
 Learn Formulas Thoroughly: Take note of the formulas that you find difficult to remember and practice as many questions as you can that are based on these formulas.
 Learn Derivation of The Formulas: Another way to remember the difficult formulas is by learning the derivations by understanding them.
 Concentrate on Scoring Topics: Once your basic concepts are strong, move on and concentrate on the scoring topics like Modern Physics, Wave Optics, Alternating Current, Sound waves (specifically Doppler’s effect). Pay extra attention to Thermodynamics as it is common to Physics and Chemistry.
 Diligent Practice: Solving IITJEE Practice Papers regularly is a must. While practising the previous JEE Advanced papers make sure you go through the analysis provided by Embibe at the end. This will, in turn, help you improve your final score.
