If you feel overwhelmed or stressed during JEE Advanced preparation, then here are a few tips for you to avoid exam stress to perform well in the exam:
Focus and recall your goal whenever you feel low or worried during IIT-JEE preparation. Always remember the purpose behind applying for JEE Advanced and keep following your aim. Remind yourself of the meaning of becoming an engineer; it will encourage you to study harder.
Always practice with the right study material that is suitable and precise for JEE Advanced preparation. Access the best study material that is the right mixture of all the options based on your priorities. You have multiple good options available offline and online. Try to collect the best and appropriate study material from online digital coaching or regular coaching in a single place. Learning with the best study material will lower your stress and anxiety, and you do not need to hustle for collecting notes, question banks, previous year's question papers etc.
Your friends or teachers, or seniors might have told you to study for 8-10 hours in one go. Study according to your pace, ease and focus. Simply sitting and learning will not add any value to your preparation until it is productive and focused. Do not study for a longer time, but study efficiently.

Lastly, always believe in yourself and be self-motivated. Don't lose hope, and don't compare yourself with anyone because success is a gradual process and takes time. Recall that you are prepared for the exam, and you can crack it. Exam stress is a natural process, and everyone has to face it.
