Best time to prepare for CLAT 2021
Best Time to Prepare for CLAT 2021 - If you want to prepare for CLAT, you need to get a reality check because it is like no other law exam. To begin with, with close to 80, 000 every year, it is easily the most competitive. Then, the CLAT question paper is typically considered to be one of the toughest, designed to test the CLAT aspirant’s readiness to study law. So, you need to overhaul your CLAT 2021 preparation plan completely, if it is not up to the mark. When discussing exam preparation, one question frequently asked by students is when is the best time to prepare for CLAT 2021. The answer to the question “best time to prepare for CLAT 2020” is tricky, because every student is different and also is in a different stage of exam preparation. That being the case, we take a very pragmatic approach to figure out what is the best time to prepare for CLAT 2021.
The Consortium of NLUs will conduct the CLAT 2021. The exam will be conducted in online based mode, continuing the trend of last year given the pandemic is still not over. CLAT 2021 application form will open tentatively in the 2nd week of January.
Answering the million dollar question: What is the Best Time to Prepare for CLAT 2021?
If one goes through the syllabus of CLAT, one would see that questions for the 5-year integrated law program are asked from five sections; refer to the syllabus section below.
The CLAT syllabus covers a gamut of topics from English to aptitude to general mathematics.
To get a good score in CLAT 2021, the candidate must do well in all the sections, or else there will be tremendous pressure to get optimum marks in a few sections.
If you are good in all of the sections that will be asked in CLAT 2021, you can easily complete the syllabus and in little time. This means even if you are late to start CLAT 2021 preparation, you are likely to catch up. But that being said, why take a chance?
Alternatively, if the candidate is weak in any of the sections, say Mathematics, in that case the candidate may need more time to complete the syllabus. In fact, the more the number of weak areas, more time will be needed to complete the CLAT 2021 syllabus.
Generally speaking, one should ideally have a year's time to prepare for CLAT 2020. This way the candidate will have enough time to do deep reading of all the important topics.
As part of one’s preparation, one must solve sample and previous years’ question papers of CLAT. This way you will be able to identify weak areas which have to be strengthened.
CLAT mock tests are also a rage these days, as they give an exam-like situation for the candidate to do a dry run before the D-day.
As for what is the best time to prepare for CLAT, morning hours are considered the most productive. So the candidate, unless a night owl, might consider not staying up until late in the night.
