On January 25, 2023, the National Testing Agency conducted JEE Main Paper 1 at 290 centres across India and 18 international locations. A booklet for rough work was given to the students, which was to be returned after the exam. There was tight supervision by the invigilators and no problems with the question papers were reported. Adherence to social distancing was maintained at the exam centres. The Mathematics section was of Moderate difficulty, Chemistry was of Easy to Moderate difficulty, and Physics was Easy. According to the students, the paper was easier than the previous year.

Physics: The physics portion of the exam featured 30 questions, with half from the XI grade curriculum and the other half from the XII grade program. The topics covered included mechanics, waves, optics, and modern physics and the difficulty of the questions was easy, as well as the numerical value-based ones.

Chemistry: The chemistry portion of the exam had 30 questions, half from 11th grade and half from 12th grade. They covered physical chemistry, organic chemistry, and inorganic chemistry, with a range of difficulty from easy to moderate and an adequate number of both easy and complicated questions.

The JEE Main Paper 1 exam consisted of 90 questions and a total of 300 marks. It was split into two parts – Section A with 60 MCQs and Section B with 10 questions each from Maths, Physics and Chemistry, of which five had to be attempted.
