Careers360: What tips would you like to share when CLAT 2014 is just few days away?
Harsh Gagrani: I would like to share the tips section-wise –
English – With just a few days to go for CLAT 2014, it is advisable to revise the basic grammar rules, go through the list of idioms, foreign words, phrases etc. An aspirant should also try solving at least 20-25 Reading Comprehension passages in the last one week, more importantly in a timed manner.
Mathematics – Though the Mathematics section of all previous CLATs have had questions from an assortment of topics, a large number of questions have appeared from the chapters of Percentage and Number System. A thorough revision of these two topics is highly recommended. Also, make sure to go though all the important short-tricks, formulaes and techniques learnt for solving mathematics questions.
Logical Reasoning – There would be questions fromPuzzles, Blood Relations, Syllogisms and the basics of Critical Reasoning topics (Statement – Course of Action, Arguments, Assumptions etc). In the last week, you can revise and practice from any good book. I would suggest that MK Pandey would suffice here. The above topics have far more frequently appeared in CLAT than other topics. Moreover, they can be easily and efficiently covered in a short span of time.
General Knowledge – It is noteworthy that unlike CLAT 2011 and CLAT 2012 and like CLAT 2013, the CLAT conducting authority (GNLU, this year) has not given any bracket of months from which Current Affairs will come. Thus, it would be safe to assume that Current Affairs may come from the whole of 2013 and the first few months at least till March, 2014. In the last few days, and with very less time on hands, go through the most predictable questions of the last one year. I am suggesting some of them – Grand Slams winners, Winners of prominent prizes like Oscars, Nobel, Jnanpith, Civilian awards etc.
Legal Aptitude – Legal Aptitude, in spite of being the most sought after section by the CLAT aspirants, has predictably been the most unpredictable section of the previous years’ CLAT papers. The CLAT authorities have, on more than one occasion, given Legal Aptitude section containing only Reasoning questions. On the other hand, there has also been a CLAT with Legal Knowledge questions and barely any Reasoning questions. However, since the past three years, a general trend has been seen of paper setters preferring Reasoning over Knowledge. The strategy for this section thus should be going through the Reasoning questions of all the past years’ papers, if an aspirant has not yet done this. In addition to this, students should also revise the Legal Reasoning questions of mocks tests. For Legal Knowledge, I’d suggest going through only the Legal Knowledge questions of previous years’ CLAT, AILET and SET.
Careers360: Share some of the last minute tips with CLAT 2014 aspirants.
Harsh Gagrani: Finally these are some of the last minute tips for CLAT 2014 aspirants –
- CLAT is unpredictable. Be prepared for surprises so that they don’t catch you off guard.
- Do prepare a strategy of time to be devoted to each section in the first one minute of getting the paper. And yes, stick to the strategy till you finish it.
- Keep three (or more) black ball point pens, of varying nib widths. Also, keep a few pencils for easy rough work.
- Eat your lunch at least 2 hours before the paper commences.
- All the best! Do really really well!
