In the April 12 exam, Physics was considered the easiest portion, while Mathematics was rated as the toughest. The exam was largely based on the NCERT textbooks and previous years’ question papers.
Students are not allowed to carry anything inside the examination hall except a transparent ballpoint pen, admit card and Aadhaar card. Transparent water bottles are also permitted in the exam hall. Personal masks are not allowed, as every student will be given a fresh surgical mask upon entry.
Best NTA Scores and Merit List Preparation
For candidates appearing in both sessions of JEE Main 2023, the best of their NTA scores will be considered for the preparation of the merit list and ranking.
OCI Candidates and JEE Main 2023 Session 2 Exam
The NTA has announced that Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) will not take the JEE Main 2023 exam and will no longer be considered as foreign national candidates. Instead, they will be included in the common merit list for general category seats during the process of seat allocations. Previously, 10% of supernumerary seats were reserved for foreign nationals.
