A tired mind makes more mistakes therefore it is important to keep it fresh and that is done through breaks and motivating activities.

As you've mentioned that you've scored 83 percentile in JEE main examination and assuming you're a general candidate then according to the formula


You rank is around 1,47,730-1,47,750. At this rank you won't get any government institutions in Mumbai or elsewhere through JEE main examination. You'll need to go for private institutions in Mumbai at this score.
