A systematic preparation is one of the keys to cracking CLAT 2019.

CLAT 2019 Study Timetable - Important points and expert tips

  • Overstressing oneself hardly does any good to any one. It is always advised that candidates take breaks in between their study sessions to refresh their minds. Supporting this, Rajendra Khadav, Director of CrackCLAT Tutorials, also says that aspirants of CLAT should work according to a study timetable and take gaps in between. He says, “Relaxing in between the study hours is essential as it helps your brain to memorize and revise the last round of study.” 
    Ashwin Madhavan, Co-founder and director of Enhelion, focuses on General Studies as one of the key sections to focus on while preparing for CLAT 2019. While talking about time management during CLAT preparation, he says that candidates should finish off with General Studies and legal aptitude sections. Candidates who particularly find technical areas difficult can structure their study timetable for CLAT in such a way that they get to finish and strengthen General studies and legal aptitude sections.

  • Strengthening each section and gaining fair amount of expertise in each of them is the key to crack the test. As the study timetable of CLAT 2019 highlights the importance of each section and the amount of time candidates should devote to them, their preparation and time management plans must accommodate all sections. 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.” To master this, she necessitates strategic preparation. She says, “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.”

Upon qualifying one of the most coveted law entrance tests of India, the candidate becomes eligible to secure a seat for himself/herself amongst 2600 seats offered by the 21 participating institutes under the university. CLAT 2019 is set to be conducted on May 12, 2019.
