I cant understand MHT CET . Is this different from CLAT? and which is easy to prepare only in one month ? and AILET also i cant understand properly

Sanjanaleekha 15th Dec, 2019

Hi there,

If you are willing then it is not difficult to prepare for CLAT or AILET in just one month, You need to focus on current affairs and recent legal development in the country, also brush up your english language and comprehension, also study and analyse the exam pattern and previous year question papers. MH CET is a bit easy than CLAT mainly because the number of students who sit for CLAT are more than MH CET. I have attached the link to the exam pattern of CLAT and AILET for your reference,

please one month strategy for CLAT

KISHORE LOHRA 15th Dec, 2019

Dear Prachi Nema

Ready for the challenge?

Then let's do IT.

1) Devote 2 hrs daily for 5 days for any recent monthly current affairs magazine (Just go through it, don't make notes)

In 30 days you'd finish 6 months current affairs.

2) Solve 1 previous year paper on every odd day (1st, 3rd etc)

Skip the current affairs part.

In 30 days you'd solve 15 papers.

3) On even days, analyse you weaker areas and work on them.
