I have given the paper twice, former for fun, and later as a backup.
- Taking the examination lightly.
- Not revising the whole syllabus as started enjoying after JEE Advanced and BITSAT
- Self-doubts about clearing the paper. (which is obvious after taking the examination lightly :P)
To all the aspirants giving the exam this year, the lesson to take away is –
Do. Not. Give. Up.
Sure, there are only 40 seats, but it is easy to get in if you have prepared well for JEE Main/Advanced.
Be consistent, revise the syllabus everyday, solve some reasoning questions in your free time, and stay chill while giving the paper.
