A JEE aspirant asked this question,
The answer is both yes and no.
It depends on how you are “solving” the problem. A question does not end with just getting the right answer. Instead, after getting the correct answer, you should ponder over how else you could have solved that problem.
For example: You solve a problem using kinematics equations. Then don’t just jump to other question, but think about, can this be solved using Work-energy theorem?
If yes, which one of the two would you have applied in the exam conditions.
If no, why? What is missing? and so on.
The “trick” is to be inquisitive throughout your IIT JEE preparation.
So in your case, if you are solving 20 “complex” questions in each subject, but if you are thinking about all the various dimensions of the questions, then “ending up consuming all the time” is totally worth it.
