    Questions related to CLAT

    Have a question related to CLAT ?
    Hello Vanshika,
    Hope you are doing good.
    So, generally there is no such thing called syllabus for the CLAT. However, for the purpose of general knowledge section, you will have to study, Constitution, Current affairs,   Static GK, History and Geography as well.
    So it's not about topics, just read everything barely and get to know the gist of the subject. That's it. For this you remember certain important articles like articles related to fundamental rights, fundamental duties, appointment and impeachment of judges, president, etc. Appointment of election commissioners, their powers and all. Just have in your mind the articles related to them and the powers entrusted with such articles.
    Good luck!!

    Hello aspirant,

    Candidates will be asked questions in this section based on texts that are up to 450 words long each. The passages will draw from non-fiction writing, journalism, and other news sources. The questions are designed to evaluate the candidate's understanding of legal concepts or concepts linked to the passing. Candidates should be aware that there won't be any questions posed beyond the passage provided. Each of these chapters will include a series of questions that will test your general knowledge and awareness of relevant current events. The following topics have been included in this area by the Consortium of NLUs:

    Important recent happenings in India and around the globe

    Culture and the Arts

    the world's affairs

    Historical occurrences that are still important today

    A few pointers for preparing for the CLAT in current affairs

    1.Take a look at the test from last year.

    Understanding the structure of the general knowledge section of the CLAT is crucial after learning about it. 40–50 multiple-choice questions are present in this section. Verify the CLAT test questions from previous years to get a sense of the questions that were asked. Start practising using the available offline and online CLAT sample questions from previous years after you have a general idea of the format. You can get better grades by answering questions correctly and by being aware of the trend.

    2. Keep yourself updated and practise regularly

    Success in anything requires practise and consistency. If you want to ace all the general knowledge questions, be sure to stay up to date on current affairs and keep your knowledge current. By studying the topic for a few days, you cannot successfully answer general knowledge questions. The knowledge must be acquired gradually (at least for a year). Along with responding and practising questions, make sure you stay up to date with global current events. Keep up with the news and read the newspaper daily to keep current.

    3. Take CLAT practise exams

    Do you wish to understand how the CLAT test actually feels? Utilize practise tests! Attending practise exams will increase your accuracy and entrance preparation while also boosting your confidence in your ability to pass the test.

    Many centres provide test series. Numerous internet platforms offer practise examinations. Choose a mode that is convenient for you. Take practise tests for each subject so you can determine your general knowledge subject strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, try to deliver at least ten full mock exams to get a feel for the actual exam.

    4.Select your study materials carefully.

    One of the factors that will have the biggest impact on your CLAT score is the study material you choose. There is a tonne of study material available, both online and offline. By selecting the greatest and most precise study materials, you can have an idea of how the entrance exam will be. Numerous offline and online study resources make the claim to be able to assist you in passing the CLAT, but in reality they are full of inaccurate material and questions. Choose reading material that closely follows the format of the current exam and is appropriate for your level of comprehension.

    5. Eliminate speculative thinking

    The answer out of the four options would be something you would be reasonably certain of if you had done a decent job of studying for the general knowledge test. If you don't know the solution to a question, don't base your decision on conjecture. For each question you successfully respond to, you will receive one mark; if you don't, you will receive 0.25 marks less. You won't receive a point deduction for providing a negative response. Pick the correct response if you are certain. If not, your best option is to ignore the question about which you are confused.

    6.Limit Your Sources

    Attempt to limit the amount of current affairs information you consume. Candidate mistakes usually involve spending time by reading multiple newspapers. Make a choice, then utilise the internet sensibly. Use a top book for the CLAT  Current Affairs section.

    7.Pay attention to the curriculum

    Always bear in mind to concentrate on the topics covered in the CLAT UG curriculum when attempting to completely cover this section. After all, more passages should be expected for these subjects.

    8.Build your own notes

    The focus of current affairs is one-liners or, at best, three to four lines. Make your notes as simple to understand and retain the information as you can. All the important notes should be underlined using a distinct colour of ink. It is crucial to take your own notes because it has been established that writing is one of the finest ways to retain information. Remember that it would be impossible to memorise everything as well.

    9. Use online examinations or practise exams.

    Practice questions on current events and general knowledge are the greatest way to ace this section. This will also provide you a general sense of the questions that will be asked, helping you to assess your level of preparation or monitor your progress. But you shouldn't try this until you've made a few preparations.

    10.Use the Internet responsibly.

    There is enough material on the internet to cover anything, but how do you decide which link to click? A collection of General Knowledge pdfs that will certainly help you with your preparation for this subject is the most significant thing you will find. Before beginning to study something, it is always advisable to confirm its credibility.

    11. Review what you've read.

    Daily review and reading of current events are crucial because their volume increases daily. The notes will be helpful for review and for keeping in mind current affairs or recent news.

    I hope these suggestions prove to be helpful to you.
