Last minute tips to get great scores on the CLAT exams:
- Improve your reading skills – You need to focus on a well thought out approach to proofing the document. Never try three of the longest sections at the same time. It is better to choose a smaller area in the middle of the exam. For example, students might follow this sequence: English, Gk, Legal, Quantum, and Logic.
- Plan B – A student should also have a backup plan. When the student receives the questionnaire, she should spend 5-10 minutes evaluating it and modifying the plan if necessary.
- Practice more mock exams: Applicants should start taking mock exams to better understand the structure of the document that will help them manage their time. Check out CLAT articles from last year to get an idea of the complexity of the issues.
- Focus on your weaknesses: Selective study is essential to success in any competition. Emphasis should be placed on the areas that students have spent a lot of time preparing for in the last few months, not the ones that they cannot fully prepare for in the last few days. Instead of looking for other sources at the last minute, go through all your mock exams, tests and try to improve your weaknesses.
- Speed and Accuracy – Since there is a negative markup, the focus should not only be on speed but also accuracy. Both are crucial to breaking the paper.
