Careers360: Tell us something about yourself and your family.

Kunal: I belong to a family of four. My father is a Lecturer in History. He has always supported me in following my pursuits. Although, I had to leave my hometown as my family and I recognised the need for a better coaching that my dream result will surely ask for, yet, my family was always there for whatever I needed, be it support or constant guidance. I consider myself determined and self motivated. I am constantly inspired by my parents, especially by my father. The love and understanding from my mother is always a big help.

 

Careers360: What motivated you to pursue law?

Kunal: I want to pursue law as a profession as I consider it to be a very giving field when it comes to financial considerations. Intellectually as well as in terms of opportunities, an individual gets to make a long list of contributions to the community.

 

Careers360: Apart from AILET 2018, which other Law entrance exams did you take? Howe was your performance in those exams?

Kunal: I appeared for MH-CET, SLAT and CLAT apart from AILET. My scores were MHCET-123, SLAT-122 and CLAT-140.50

 

Careers360: When did you start preparing for the law entrance exams and what was your section wise strategy?

Kunal: I started preparing for law entrance exams in eleventh standard itself. I had humanities so there was less burden from the CBSE side.

 

Section Wise Strategy -
GK- Consistency is the key. It was a combination of newspaper, current GK websites , and static GK books. In the later phase of preparation sound revision is the key. I kept myself updated with current case laws and judgments.


Logical Reasoning - Preparation for NTSE in class tenth helped me preparing for LR section and for CR solving inferential RC’s and LSAT papers helped me a lot.


Maths- Maths was not a hurdle for me and eliminating options helped a lot.


English- English was my weakest section in the early phase of preparation but thereafter i worked hard on the topic , solved as many question as I could, after a rigorous practice , I eventually gained confidence and started scoring well.


Legal- By solving past years papers and coaching material, I managed to have a good command over the legal section.


Careers360: Which were your strong and weak sections and how did you prepare for them?

Kunal: My weakness was English so, as I have mentioned above constant practice for 2 months and then rummaging over those in the last 2-3 months really helped me a lot in increasing marks in CLAT and AILET. My Strengths were GK and LR, so that really gave me an advantage over others in mock tests.


Careers360: What was your exam day experience? What strategy did you follow?

Kunal: I had an accident on the 1st of May and AILET was on 6th, it was really a tough job to sit there and concentrate over the CR and the Legal Reasoning questions but somehow I managed to complete the paper on time. The main thing that gave me an edge was, I didn’t freakout on the D-day and kept myself calm and later on it paid off.

 

Careers360: This was the first time AILET introduced negative marking. Were you aware of this? How did you tackle the paper?

Kunal: I always had a tendency to attempt each and every question in CLAT where there was already negative marking. So, the introduction of negative marking didn’t really affect me.

 

Careers360: How did you balance the board exam preparations with AILET and other law entrance tests?

Kunal: I was a Humanities student and I didn’t have much pressure from CBSE side as subjects were easier in comparison to other streams. In the penultimate week of February, I started preparing for my boards and I got ample of gap between two exams that I covered the entire syllabus in time.

 

Careers360: Did you take up any coaching? How important was coaching for you?

Kunal: Yes, I took coaching from CLAT PREP, Jaipur.
It indeed, was important for me as it gave me a competitive environment and regular mocks provided, helped me gaining confidence over my prep. I discussed my weaknesses with my faculty and worked upon that and eventually gained confidence over those topics.

 

Careers360: When did you begin taking mock tests? How may mock tests did you take before taking the exam? How did mock test help you in law exams?

Kunal: I started giving mocks in August, 2017.
I gave 75-80 mocks before CLAT and AILET.
It really helped in time management and assessing my virtual All India Ranks before the main exam. Analyzing mocks made sure that I won’t miss out on the topics that are weak or consuming a lot of time and next mock scoring good in same section/topic helped me overcome my fears.

 

Careers360: Tell us something about your hobbies. Did you get time for them during the preparation phase?

Kunal: As I mentioned before, I am a big fan of Sci-fi movies, Stand-up comedy and T.V. Shows but during the preparation phase, it was tough to get time for all that but I managed to simultaneously watch all that so that I don’t feel stressed out and get refreshed during the prep phase.

 

Careers360: What are your suggestions for AILET aspirants who will appear for the test next year?

Kunal: For AILET, keep a note on current issues and case laws/current judgment, as it has a lot of weightage in AILET. One must not be carried away by Past Year Papers in AILET and not stick to any pattern as you’ll get bouncers in the exam. Don’t get stressed by your low mock scores.
