Questions asked in JEE (Main) are not very difficult rather they are different
Each question has a bit of surprise in it & student who is prepared to tackling such surprise questions is most likely to sail through.
The general conception is that the JEE (Advanced) is a difficult examination and the questions are complex and tough. That is only partially true. It is merely a different exam.
All it requires is a proper examination temperament and different approach to the subject. It requires in-depth subject knowledge and also through understating of various concepts involved.
