Thus, with the revised and more NCERT-friendly syllabus for JEE Mains and Advanced 2023, IIT JEE aspirants will need to formulate a new preparation strategy suitable for the more lengthy syllabus. Keeping in view the updated syllabus, students should primarily focus on the NCERT books and then go for other IIT JEE reference books. They would also need to change their learning style to adapt to the more conceptual based IIT Physics syllabus.
