Start taking 3-hour tests: It’s not about chapter tests and concepts tests anymore. Get a feel of the real test environment by taking full tests. Another reason for you to choose myPAT because now you can take tests in the same test screen as NTA (National Testing Agency).
Study in groups: If that is your thing then why not. It always helps to discuss with like-minded aspirants to yield the best of results. Some find it a quicker way to learn. If you like to study alone then try to avoid group studies.
The Next One Month

This is where mock tests will come to your rescue. These mock tests help you get acquainted to the exam format, help you manage time efficiently and boost your confidence.
Make your weaknesses your strengths: When you take mock tests on myPAT, you get personalized feedback on concepts that are your strengths along with those that you need to work on. There is no better time to work on your weaknesses than now.

Special Tip: The exam tests your knowledge in 3 subjects. When revising, prioritize the subjects. Why? Because the exam is not about completing the entire paper but about getting the questions right. In the last month you cannot master a subject that is not your strongest pursuit, instead, aim to maximize results from the subjects you are good at. This doesn’t mean you will neglect other subjects by any means.
With the right mindset and a winning strategy nothing is impossible, be it an exam like JEE. Don’t worry! You’ve got this.
Best of luck!
