This is possible only through consistent practice. Solving past year papers will give you the best idea of the level of questions asked in the JEE exam.
7. Work smart, not just hard
Be smart about your goals and strategy. Know your strength and weakness. It’s okay to make mistakes but be smart enough to learn from them. [Tips to study smart for JEE]
