How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Solve previous years’ JEE Mains question papers
Solving previous years’ JEE Mains question papers is important as it would give you a real feel of the JEE Mains exam. Also, as you solve them, you’ll gain more confidence as you are solving the actual question papers that had appeared before in JEE Mains!
How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Solve JEE Main Mock Tests
Solving JEE Main mock tests is as important as solving JEE Main previous year papers because sometimes you would have already solved the questions that had previously occurred in JEE Mains even before solving the complete JEE Mains question paper; but in the case of mock tests, that might be a very rare case.
While solving the tests, make sure to solve them in time frames of three hours each, preferably according to the timings of the JEE Mains exam. Try to mimic the examination conditions as much as you can. Ask everyone at your home to not disturb you while you are solving the papers. Do not get up in between — not even for drinking water! The more you solve papers in the exam-like conditions, the better your exam temperament will get.
How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Revise Inorganic Chemistry daily
A daily revision of Inorganic Chemistry topics is very important. This is a subject, the content of which students tend to forget easily. Also, many students find this subject to be dry and boring. But, this is the subject that can really make the difference in pushing your rank up.
Revise all the Inorganic Chemistry reactions almost every day during these 15 days before the JEE Mains exam. The important topics, like Metallurgy, p-block elements etc., should be focussed upon especially.
How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Analyzing performance
Analyzing your performance in the papers that you had solved is as important as solving the papers.

How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Try to identify the pattern in which you will solve the actual JEE Mains question paper
While solving the JEE Main mock tests, you should get an idea about the order in which you should be solving the question papers. Some solve in the order: Chemistry, Physics, and then Mathematics. However, this is in no way an enforced pattern and you should try solving the paper in order of the subjects as per your level of comfort in them.
Try following the same pattern of solving question papers even in the actual JEE Mains exam. This would help you keep cool in the exam. However, you can change the pattern of paper solving in case it is required.

Making notes is an important part of your JEE preparation. Self-made notes come to rescue when time is less and you want to have a glance at all the important theory, formulae, tips, and tricks.

However, it is advisable to revise the solutions of the questions that highlight some important concept or trick. Doing so will ensure that you don’t miss a similar question in the actual exam.
How to prepare for JEE Mains in 15 days: Do not start studying any new topic
