Careers360: Share some last minute tips with CLAT 2014 aspirants.Ishita: Students are advised to revise static G.K and current affairs starting from May 2013 to April 2014 at least. Personal notes made by reading the newspaper themselves would be of good use at this time as students can memorise better from their own notes. Mock test are another good way to understand your weak areas. However, in these two days you should focus on the problematic portions.
Students are advised to revise legal reasoning as it is usually the tie-breaker and the most important section in CLAT. It is advisable that new topics are not be started at this point of time as it would only create confusion and distort old concepts in the student’s mind. Hence, students should restrain themselves from learning anything new and be confident about their preparation.
Also, it is important not to get demoralized by your friend's preparation/score in mocks as this could lead to complete breakdown at this crucial time. Avoid any discussion regarding the exam, if possible.
Careers360: What are the Do’s and Don’ts for the exam day?Ishita: Students should sleep well (minimum 8 Hrs) before the examination. Eat healthy. Drink enough water and stay calm. Take short breaks. Do not worry about your previous score if you appearing for the second time. Have faith in your preparation.
Most importantly, DO NOT PANIC. Take it easy!
Careers360: What strategy should CLAT aspirants adopt for the exam day?Ishita: It is advisable to wake up early in the morning and revise G.K as much as possible. Remember to carry your admit cards to avoid any last moment chaos at the examination center. If possible, appoint somebody to remind you or set a reminder in your cell phones.
Reach the center at least 45 minutes before the examination starts so that you can talk to your fellow mates and relax a bit. Leave cell phones at home if possible as there are chances of losing them at the examination center. Definitely stop studying 2 hrs before the exam.
Once you receive the Question booklet, take a deep breath and relax first. Then, fill in all the details carefully. Allot time for each section and try not to exceed it. If you get stuck with any question, do not waste your time struggling with it, skip it and move on to the next one. You can always come back to it later if you find time.
If you want to complete the paper, then, do not waste more than 2 minutes on any question.

Stay focused for just two more days. Stay concentrated. Avoid social networking. Try not to get distracted in the examination hall and give in your best in the exam.
Come out of the hall with a belief that you gave your best and you could do nothing better than this. It is better to refrain from any discussion regarding the paper. Do not sit to calculate your rank. You've worked a lot all this while, time for some fun after the examination.
