Can i Join any Clat coching online or offline as now I am in class 11th and I am thinking about for clearing clat so can anyone help me to if I am right to have coaching right now or after 12th because I think that wasting time is not good . so so please suggest me to if I join online coaching ??
I suggest preparing for CLAT examination from class 11th onwards will be most suitable since you will get acquainted with the concepts earlier and you will have comparatively much more practice as compared to if you start studying for it in or after class 12th. If you start now, there are more chances of you clearing the CLAT exam and getting enrolled in top National Law Universities. Also, you need not require very good grades in 12th for the CLAT eligibility. So, you need to decide which one will you give priority to, that is, 12th class or your CLAT. If it's CLAT that is your priority, then start it's preparation now as one needs to score really good marks for getting in NLUs and amid all the competition there is for getting in those few seats. And about coaching, it is not that necessary, it depends on your individual capability. If it's any topic you need to know about, you can always search for it and do with the self guide books. But taking a good coaching will surely help you. It's more about practice. If you practice with dedication daily then you need no coaching.
- To start with, you must be familiar with the test format and syllabus.
- To edify learning and enhance problem solving abilities, practice enough mock exams and sample papers.
- CLAT applicants are also urged to stick to a strict preparation schedule.
- To prepare for the test, candidates should pick books that are easy to understand, satisfy quality standards, and provide plenty of practice material.

All the best!
I want to prepare for CLAT along with neet. what can I do to prepare for CLAT with limited time available
Here is the overview of plan on how you can manage time for clat preparation section wise:
- General Knowledge and current affairs are subjects which the candidate must do self-study as there is nothing conceptual that requires a guide or a teacher. So give it atleast half an hour per day.
- Logical Reasoning can seem to be tricky, but if you put your mind to it you can decipher it without much effort. It is all about using some common sense and logic, but you will need lots of practice to master the section. The logical section would include questions on blood relations, analogies, syllogism, and logical sequences. So make sure you have good materials to prepare for it and try to complete or practice a topic per day rather than going for time.
- To prepare for questions in this section, one should pick up quantitative aptitude questions for practice. Questions in this section will be from a variety of topics like Number systems, Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Geometry, Trigonometry, Mensuration, Statistics, and Probability. Give minimum an hour for mathematics.
- The legal aptitude section is an important section in CLAT 2021. The section would consist of two parts: Legal Reasoning and Legal Knowledge. To answer questions from the Legal Reasoning section, one must be able to carefully read and understand what it is asking before proceeding to answer it. For the Legal Knowledge section, the candidate must be aware of the Legal Maxims to accurately use relevant legal terminologies. So you can give flexible time to it but make sure you're constantly practice questions.
- For English make sure your vocabulary is strong and try the previous year questions sets per week. Daily read newspapers and add new words with their meaning, synonyms , antonyms to your dictionary.
Hope it helps!!

I want to prepare for CLAT but I have maths as a sunject and am taking coaching classes for jee(my parents suggested to take them till 12th) should I drop out of the coaching as I do not want to maje a career in engineering or should I continue?
If you're not at all interested in pursuing a career in engineering, then you have to make efforts to understand your parents regarding your specific areas of interest, see in this day and age engineering and medical aren't only sole options , I understand that these two have been considered great career options since long time but if you're not even interested in having a career then there is no point in going through strenuous hours of coaching, further followed by your academics, exam preparation etc, whether you choose law or engineering, you are going to spend some four to five years of your life in college, hence it's of utmost importance that you enroll in a course that you feel interested enough, because if that's not there the entire academics journey ahead will become tough to deal with, may be you're a brilliant student, you will do well in engineering also, but what about your fulfillment of pursuing a career of your choice, that fits in with your skills, aptitude, and areas of interest, you have to discuss all this with your parents, you have to make them understand that law as a career too has great options, for example we have various options in integrated law, there is BA-LLB which is arts with law, BSc-LLB which is combination of science and law, BCA-LLB which is combination of computer application that of law, BBA-LLB is amalgamation of law with management, BCom is commerce with law, etc, so as per your inclination towards specific subject you can go ahead with any of these choices, there are equally good job profiles available as well after becoming a law graduate, hence you have to try to make your parents see your point of view, you can also give examples of various people who have settled well in life after pursuing law, and it really holds great scope even in the time to come.
