How to prepare for online CLAT 2017?


As CLAT 2017 is all set to be held in online mode, experts advice aspirants to prepare for the exam before-hand so that they don’t panic on the exam day. Rajneesh Singh, CLAT mentor and Do-Zen Director says, “We are so much accustomed to paper based mode that it is really difficult to imagine a computer test. The solution to this is practice as many online mock tests as possible. Solution is to get tortured many times till you feel the comfort.”

 

Harsh Gagrani, Director, LegalEdge Tutorials advices CLAT aspirants to prepare strategically and get accustomed to the online pattern by spending more time with computers. He says, “Adjust your strategy, starting right now! Read the online materials. Read newspaper articles, magazine articles etc. You can also subscribe to online mock tests and solve as many tests as possible. This will boost your preparation and help you efficiently for the online exam without using a pencil.”

How can I strategize my section-wise preparation?


Experts advise the aspirants to strategize their preparations. They say that candidates need to plan their CLAT 2017 preparation based on various sections of the national-level law exam. Aakanksha Nath, a law exam expert says, “Section-wise preparation is necessary. One needs to work thoroughly on the subjects in which s/he is weak in apart from taking the online mock tests. Mock tests will help law aspirants to assess their preparation level.”

 

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 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 advices, “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 advices on how to make CLAT 2017 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; focus should be on legal reasoning problems.”
