The more you practice tests, the more you are accustomed to sitting during that period of exam and pacing yourself.

Also, from the data given below you can notice, that the number of tests taken by AIR 7 is 62 and that too only in the month of November, this is because he was a dropper and he was acknowledged with the fact that how important it was to practice questions before GATE. 

One more strange thing that you may observe is that the number of tests taken by both AIR 5 & AIR 7 rankers is 0 in the month of February, and the reason behind this could be that both the toppers didn’t want to pressurize themselves just a few days before the exam and wanted to stay calm & composed.
