Questions related to CLAT
is it good to go out another city for clat preparation, because the place where I live has no facility but after I clear this exam , again I have to somewhere else for law. what to do? which city is best for clat preparation.
Well preparing for clat is also possible without coaching but it do require extra work as you will have to collect all the required materials such as notes and books by yourself, where in a coaching centre you are provided all the required materials.
However it isn't necessary to go to a different city to prepare untill and unless you are not ready. You have made a very good point here that for law college you will eventually have to go to a different city. Well if you are ready and comfortable than go for it. I will recommend you to go for delhi, as it has some of the best coaching centres and crowd is also good.
However if you are not ready to go to a different city you can also try online coaching programs. In offline coaching centres you get to interact with competitive crowd which pushes you up further to work hard however in online classes it isn't possible.
Anyways I hope you will make best decision for yourself. Hope you find it helpful.
