When time is less, more time should be dedicated for practice rather than covering the syllabus, that is because when you solve mock papers,
Firstly, you come across a lot of different kinds of questions which prepares you better for the exam.
Secondly, it increases the speed and accuracy as with everyday practice, certain tricks start coming handy.
Thirdly, psychologically, it makes you feel more calm and composed during the examination and remember, sometimes, nervousness can ruin your examination even when you are fully prepared.
Fourthly, you get to know your weaknesses and work on them. When the benefits are these many, ignoring practice will harm none other but only delay your success.
