To JEE aspirants
“Before preparing for any exams, there should be proper aim. Many entrance exams are being held simultaneously. Whichever you want, focus only on that. If focus is divided onto many, it will affect performance. Concentrate on one exam at a time. Try and do as many mock tests as possible. As the number of tests increases, so do results. During the final days, mock tests and online tests are critical”.
