please tell.me 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.

BEST OF LUCK!
