Common Law Entrance Examination is a centralized examination for admission to the National Law Unitversities in India. This test can be taken after the HS Examinations for admission to the undergraduate programmes in Law conducted by these universitites. The strategies to prepare for the exam are as follows:
1. Have a thorough knowledge about the CLAT Structure and the paper patterns.
2. Prepare for the following under different sections:
o Legal Section
o Logical Reasoning
3. Take Mock examinations.
4. Be up to date with current affairs: Reading is always the best way to prepare for examinations. Knowledge about the various aspects of the country shows that you are keen to know more and learn and hence newspapers, magazines, articles, follow the news etc. This will help you for the G.K component
5. Buy the books as prescribed by seniors and teachers from the market. Collect the related study material and study them first according to the syllabus and only on completion you can think of diversifying to other areas which are not specifically mentioned in the syllabus.
6. Depth Study: Always remember that no coaching and no expensive books can help you unless you have clarity. Thus for all the concepts that you study try to go for a in-depth study and analysis of the concepts so that you have clarity in what you know.
7. Follow a schedule: Always follow a schedule for your preparations. Take mock examinations and time yourself accordingly. Try to reduce your analysis times and speed up quick calculations such that you have more time to spare on the difficult questions in the examination.
8. CLAT Sample Papers: Solve previous year CLAT papers and make a note of the topics which were asked in the paper. Try to find the areas where the paper lays more stress on and study those chapters in greater detail while doing your preparations.
