Practice is the key to improve on what one has studied. This is possible with constant practice with the help of past question papers, mock tests and such for JEE Main. The mock tests are available on the NTA website where one can download the same or practice online. Students can even register and book to go to the Test Practice Centres (TPCs) near to their place. Accordingly to the officials, 2,697 TPCs have been established in various schools and engineering colleges with computer centres. To avail this facility, candidates will have to do online registration and visit these TPCs as per the slot allotted to them. The TPCs have a downloaded Computer Based Test (CBT) which is similar to the actual JEE Main exam. Also, authorities have developed an app which enables candidates to choose the nearest JEE Main mock test centres.

To practice on the JEE Main Mock test on the NTA website click here 
Candidates can access the mock test without the need to login. They must simply press enter on the login button without any inputs. JEE Main Mock tests are available for both Paper I and Paper II. However, in case of Paper II, mock test for drawing section or B.planning is not available. 

NTA has released sample numerical questions of JEE Main 2020. Candidates can use these to understand the type of questions that may be asked in the actual exam.

So the first step candidates must do is to download the JEE Main question paper that is available in the candidate login. This means that they will have all the question Ids on hand. Then they must check the JEE Main provisional answer key for the questions and match them. In case of discrepancy, they must note the question ID and the answer ID to keep track of the same.
