Well, I did something different
Was in a good mood and didnt do proper prep till the time Mains results were declared. Seriously, dont do that.
After results, I wanted to revise each chapter by solving problems pertaining to that chapter from various references. I got through 3 days and got damn bored. I stopped doing that and just started spamming JEE adv papers..
My schedule during the break between mains result and advanced was like this:
6:00: Wake up and review mistakes of previous paper and do detailed analysis of paper.
8:00: Breakfast and chill till 9:30
9:30 - 12:30 : Solve paper 1 of some advanced mock exam
12:30-12:45: Compute scores of paper 1 and think about how much better the paper would have been if I hadnt made silly mistakes
12:45 - 2:00 : Eat lunch and chill
2:00 - 5:00: Solve paper 2 of same advanced mock exam
5:00 - 5:15: Do the same thing as 12:30 - 12:45
7:30 - 8:00: Eat dinner
8:00 - 10:30: Review and analyze mistakes of todays paper. If there is spare time, solve problems from random reference book (Basically studied what I felt like, sometimes revised inorganic)
10:30 - 11:00 : Waste time on YT.
As you can probably see, I didnt do ANY "study". It was more of a review and fix holes exercise for more than a month.
At this point, there is no use of studying something new and unknown. In fact, I had only a rudimentary idea about many (read few) chapters, and never made an attempt to read them during the time between mains and adv. I did that because I knew that it would be a very inefficient use of time.
I would definitely recommend everyone to solve as many papers as you can in the same timings as the actual exam. It makes you habituated to solving JEE level problems during the 9:30-12:30, 2-5 time slots. This helps a lot, especially if you get a bad test centre ( I got one with no A/C, fans not working, in the middle of a deserted area where temperatures were around 38 degrees in a humid city).
As the exam progresses, I'd recommend to solve easier papers. It boosts your confidence and makes you take the exam chill. I did the very same thing and reduced difficulty to such a low extent that I'd solve the exam in 80% of the duration of the exam while still getting a good score!
