Rajneesh Singh, CLAT mentor and Do-Zen Director says, “We are so much accustomed to a paper based mode that it is really difficult to imagine a computer test.

Some experts also suggest adopting a daily study routine. Rajendra Khadav, Director of CrackCLAT Tutorials says, “I would suggest CLAT aspirants go for a routine study of 8-9 hours daily. However, the study hours may differ for different candidates.” The CrackCLAT Tutorials Director also suggests that aspirants of CLAT should work according to a study time-table and take gaps in between the study hours. He says, “Relaxing in between the study hours is essential as it helps your brain to memorize and revise the last round of study.”

 

Prof. Hema Raman, Director, Sri Ram Law Academy says, “It’s smart to prepare for CLAT in a systematic manner. CLAT aspirants need to have a clear concept of all the sections, know the question pattern and focus on necessary components of the law entrance exam.” She further advises, “Aspirants appearing for the first time will have only one month’s time after their boards so they need to strategise their preparation at the earliest.”

 

Prof. Raman also advises on how to make CLAT 2018 section-wise preparation. She opines, “For English, one should focus on grammar and vocabulary. For Maths, all elementary chapters such as Time and Distance, Time & Work, Profit & Loss etc., are important. For GK, both current affairs as well as static GK deserve attention. For Logical Reasoning, one should focus on critical reasoning and for Legal Aptitude; the focus should be on legal reasoning problems.”
