They can tell you whether you need to work on your concepts, theory part, or need more practice to solve specific type of problems.
3. What went wrong – Speed or Accuracy?
One of the benefit of a good JEE online test series is that it will tell you about the time spent on each question and section. In exam, did you take more than required time in solving questions? If yes, then you need more practice. The objective is to solve so many questions that you start anticipate which method would likely work best. With experience you’ll be able to see solution quickly.
If you got too much negative marks in paper, then you need to find out the silly mistakes you did in the exam. Did you read the question carefully? Is it about random guess? In exams like JEE, accuracy is more important than speed as a slight mistake can ruin other questions marks. Save the answer only if you’re sure it’s the correct one.
4. Identify the weak topics
Identify the questions and the topics where you faced problem in the exam. That’s where you want to give your maximum focus. It’s okay to make mistakes once, but making them again is not right. Remove all your confusion and doubts from these topics.

If your concepts are not clear, Physics and Maths will be tough for you. You will find these sections lengthy. Physics requires logical thinking, a thorough understanding of fundamental concepts and the application of mathematics to solve problems. Understand the concepts instead of memorizing them.
