Hi, Most experts recommend that students study for at least six hours a day or 42 hours a week or so (excluding the time they spend on coaching classes) to prepare adequately for the JEE. But that recommendation is only useful if you can design a timetable that suits your specific needs. For more information, please refer, JEE Main Exam.
