The best way to face any opponent is to first know what they are. In this case, the opponent is your exam and you need to know the pattern and the structure of the exam.

This will make you realize the proper way to approach the exam, that will be best suited for you.
While practising the mock papers check on how much time are you taking to solve the paper and then try to set a target so that you solve in less time when you solve for the next time.
Create a Personal Schedule
You are the only person that knows your strengths and weaknesses, so you need to prepare a good and disciplined schedule that incorporates your way of preparation. After having ascertained what sections need works, prepare a plan that divides topics to be covered and time to allot to each topic. But just creating a schedule for the sake of creating the schedule is of no use if you don't stick to it until you achieve your goal. So you need to make sure that you are strictly adhering to your schedule.
Practice like the Exam is tomorrow
Sometimes you might get bored to keep practising the sample questions. You might even stop taking them seriously. But the easiest way to avoid these things is to convince yourself that the next day is the exam and you are still a long way from learning all of those questions.
