CLAT 2019 Guidelines for Day Before Exam

Careers360 presents below the CLAT Exam Day Guidelines and last minute preparation tips collected from the recommendations of exam experts and previous CLAT toppers for the benefit of candidates appearing for CLAT 2019. The tips to keep in mind a day or two before the exam day are as follows:

Remain calm and don’t take stress – The main advice given by all CLAT experts is to stay calm, relax and not take any unnecessary exam pressure. Such an attitude will help candidates remain positive, enabling them to attempt the exam in a confident manner and also to remain focused on giving the right answers to the questions.

Do not start with anything new – Candidates often make the mistake of trying to mug up as many topics as they can just before the day of the exam so as to feel that they haven’t left anything out. Experts do not recommend starting anything new a day before the examination as it can lead to confusion and panic. Instead, candidates can focus on reading newspapers or watching news channels as it will help them to absorb information and learn new vocabulary without any pressure.

Keep all documents handy in time – It is recommended that candidates keep all their important documents safely and in an easily accessible place the day before the exam so that they do not waste time searching for it on the exam morning. Candidates should definitely check whether they have safely kept and carried with them their CLAT Admit Card, a valid Identity Proof, photographs, pencil and eraser on the day of the exam.

Know the exam centre location – With CLAT 2017 being held in 40 exam centres across India, most candidates should have an exam centre in their vicinity. However they should ensure that they know the exact location of the centre a day before itself by visiting it and keeping in mind the important landmarks so that they do not get lost on the way to the exam and reach on time.

CLAT 2019 Guidelines for Exam Day

The day of the exam may lead to candidates feeling anxious and nervous about how they will perform in the paper. They should know that such feelings are completely natural and most if not all exam-givers are experiencing the same. Following the tips given below will surely help candidates to keep their exam stress at bay:

Rise early – It would be beneficial for candidates to wake up early on the day of the exam so as to clear their minds, get ready at leisure and not engage in a last-minute stressful rush.

Check documents again – While the candidates may have already kept their required documents ready as advised above, it would be useful for them to cross-verify whether they are carrying all of them before leaving for the exam hall.

Leave behind unnecessary items – The CLAT Committee has clearly specified the do’s and don’ts for all candidates including what they are allowed to carry into the exam hall. Candidates can check their admit cards to see the articles/gadgets they are not supposed to have with them while appearing for the exam. These include mobile phones, electronic watches, calculators and other such equipment. Candidates will only be allowed to carry their ID proof, Admit Card, photographs, pencil and eraser. Those carrying unauthorized items into the exam hall will be disbarred from appearing for CLAT 2019.

Report on time – Knowing the exam centre beforehand as recommended above will help candidates report on time to the exam hall as they will be familiar with the distance, route, expected traffic and time required. It is advised that candidates reach their respective exam centres at least half an hour before the reporting time.

Check seating arrangements – Candidates should immediately check the seating arrangement as soon as they arrive at the exam centre so that they are clear about where to go when entry starts. The seating arrangement should be checked along with other candidature details including name, roll number and date of birth so as to ensure the identified seat is correct and to avoid wastage of time in finding the seat after reporting time.
