With CLAT exam so close, students are bound to get tensed and worried. This is accentuated by the knowledge that CLAT is the Nation’s toughest exam for clearing law. CLAT in the previous years has managed to surprise everyone with the amount of unpredictability that it brings to the field. There are five headings in the exam- legal aptitude, logical reasoning, English comprehension, General knowledge and current affairs, and mathematics for a total of 180 marks. Since the topics are vast, there is a certain amount of solid preparation that needs to come in before you attempt the exam. Therefore, here we describe some of the tips that you need to keep in mind before attempting the exam. These are divided into two categories- topic-centric and tips for general preparation.

Last minute preparation tips for Crack CLAT 2018

Topic-special tips:

  • Focus on reading comprehension for English. That is one of the most time taking elements in the exam. For that, you have to keep practising. You have about one minute per question which means you must be able to read about 350-400 words a minute to excel at this. Read a lot. This will get you updated on general awareness as well, so that’s an added perk. Keep reading articles, discourses and interpretations of various subjects and broach topics in general. This will not only develop you reading speed but give you specialised insight into several topics- legal and otherwise which is really useful
  • For new words and phrases, don’t pause for every new thing. Speed takes precedence over immediate comprehension when you’re in the learning phase. Once that’s done, you can always refer to the books to know the new words
  • There is no replacement to learning static GK the conventional manner, like learning it from books such as Manorama. This will give you the basic knowledge you need
  • Stay up to date on the basics for your mathematics. CBSE 8-10th classes mathematics basics should do the trick. Previous years’ papers and sample papers, ideally, should only come in once you’ve finished this preparation
  • As for the legal aspect, CLAT has leaned towards asking questions where you have to think logically rather than dump facts. So get you’re reasoning skills right. This will help you better understand the workings of that section and you can stand to score in this section. Ideally, this is one of the easiest sections to crack

General Tips:

  • Stick to the basics. There is nothing more important than the basics here. The better you are with mathematics, the better your chances are here. The logical reasoning also relies on how well versed and how well you understood the basics of the legal code inherent in the problem. Get your basics right
  • Stick to a timetable. Otherwise, the portion is too vast to be able to cover. Do not start a new topic this close to the exam. Work on revising what you already know. This will increase your chances of scoring in the exam
  • Focus on a balance between speed and comprehension.
