Here are few tips for preparation you must follow to get a good score without coaching:-English: Vocabulary questions will be asked. Word Power Made Easy is the book you can use to improve your vocabulary.
High School Grammar and Composition ( by Wren and Martin)It is a book to improve the grammar skills.
GK: Question on current affairs will be asked. Read newspaper for CURRENT G.K. than trying to grasp all info at once. Some of the newspaper sources which you can use to prepare this section are The Hindu, Financial Express, and The Economist. You can also use some other apps like Inshorts etc for current affairs.Mathematics: Only Data based questions will be asked. Like you have some information and questions on basis of that information.Logical Reasoning: Data tables, Data Charts, Bar Diagrams, Pie Charts, Graphs, Data Comparison and Analysis. These are some of the topics on which you can expect questions.
Here are some links for you:-
NAAC committee which provides grades to Indian Universities as per their performance has awarded Grade ‘C’ to UPES because of its worst academic performance and this is the lowest grade awarded to any Indian university. Even a faculty of law from this caught was caught taking bribe from students for increasing their attendance is his course. But overall the faculty is fairly good. The campus is neat and clean and well maintained.
For BA LLB, BBA LLB or B com LLB , the course fees for 5 years is 16.48 lakhs.The actual fees is much more than the official tuition fees. There will also be added expenses like industrial tour, summer classes, reevaluation, direct study, corticated issue, library and other activities. Considering, the overall expenses and fees structure, this college is not at all value for money.
However, this college is at a very good location.The location of UPES is just behind Mussoorie hills. There also trekking route from UPES back gate to mussoorie with a fishing point (river) in between.
UPES Admission is based on the national level CBT entrance examination by UPES or via national level entrance exams like JEE Main, CLAT, CAT. Direct admission is also available via the board exam merit.
I hope this helps you!
First I would suggest you to join a good coaching for CLAT preferably, to ensure that you understand the concepts of legal reasoning properly, and you have a good teacher or a senior in law school, who can help you clear your doubts in reasoning. Give at least 25–30 mock tests, and analyze them properly, recognizing your weak points. For current affairs you can refer to gktoday.in, read and re read the current affairs again and again. Maths and logical reasoning is all about practice, the more you practice the more you improve. The same goes with English, for improving your word power you can refer to word power made easy by Norman Lewis. But as you only have two months you need a rigorous practice, try to devote 7–8 hours to self study for CLAT preparation. If you are talking about studying for both CLAT and AILET simultaneously, then its difficult. But try to solve papers and have a clear understanding about the concepts.
Hope this helps! All the best.
