Therefore, it is absolutely important for you to have at your disposal all necessary resources that could potentially help in your preparations. Collect quality books and study materials.

Evaluate yourself consistently
Even though you may be attempting a lot of mock tests in your coaching institute or private tuitions, it is important that you frequently evaluate your preparations with the help of several mock tests a week.
Here’s an excerpt from one of our articles on How to balance between Boards and JEE Preparation:
In order to make that possible, spend at least one hour to 90 minutes every day for solving these objective type questions. While doing so, ensure that you solve at least 20 questions from two minimum subjects. For example, if you solve 20 questions from Physics and Mathematics each on Monday, spend the next day solving 20+20 questions from, let’s say – Chemistry and Physics.”
In the same article, we mentioned how it is of the utmost importance that you regularly analyze your performance in these mock tests so as to find strong and weak points of your preparation.
Spend another hour or so analyzing your performances on these mock tests. It is important that you do this step very carefully because without properly analyzing your strengths and weaknesses, you won’t be able to progress much in your preparations. The more you are familiar with your weaknesses and strengths, the better you will be able to streamline your preparations for the boards to eliminate those.

Don’t refer to many books initially:
You should not be in a mad rush to complete books after books. The NCERTs are the best to understand concepts. You can go for one extra book for practice. Books like H.C Verma for physics, R D Sharma for Mathematics, etc. are sufficient. It is important to learn the variety of questions that can be asked.
Take care of your physical and mental health:
It is an essential factor in life. There is no point in studying continuously and getting exhausted. One has to eat right, exercise, play games, and socialize a bit.
This will help you tackle the future better. So, to keep yourself healthy follow the following steps:
- Add fruits in your diet
- Avoid junk food
- Increase water intake
