The examination is only a month away, thus, this is the time you should concentrate only on the examination. If you have read Mahabharata, and know about Arjuna, be like him. Concentrate only on the eye of the bird, in your case, CLAT 2019! All things can wait but this time, if lost, cannot be compensated. So stay focused and give your 100%.

Revision -

You may have a lot to cover in this one month, but do not forget revising what has been completed. A question in the examination may come from a small piece of news that you had read a few months back, but you could not attempt it because you failed to recollect that what you have read. So, revision is important.

Mock tests -

Preparation for CLAT is incomplete without mock tests. So, mock tests are a must do for CLAT. With only 20 days left for CLAT, try to solve at least 10 mock tests. Analyse the outcome of the mock. Find out the topics that are pulling your score down in the mock.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, all play and no work makes Jack a mere toy!

Studying for 12-15 hours and going to sleep, wake up and study again, does this sound like your daily routine? Or are you someone who studies for an hour and goes to play? The “Do” here is to balance work and play. If you do not give your mind a break, it will reach a saturation point, which might affect your CLAT score. A small 15 - 30 minutes break for any recreational activity should be spared to sharpen your mind.

Solve every question from mock test -

The last must do for CLAT, is a continuation of mock test. After you analyse the result of mock test, solve the questions that you could not attempt during the mock. Also, solve those which you had incorrectly answered. Do not leave any question unattempted and solve it till you get the right answer. This will strengthen your preparation for CLAT.

Sleep is the golden chain that binds health and our bodies together - Thomas Dekker

Sleep for at least 5 hours the night before the examination. Mind needs rest to perform better on the exam day. It will improve your concentration on the exam day.

Let us now discuss the pre exam don’ts for CLAT-

Do not depend solely on test centres -

Many preparation institutes organize mock tests everyday for a month before the examination. You should not depend on these tests only. Solve question papers from various institutes, sample papers online, previous years question paper, etc. This will expose you to a variety of questions that can be asked in the examination.

Do not join multiple preparation institutes -

Many students have the tendency to join 2-3 preparation institutes, and end up coming home tired with no time or energy left for self study. Choose the institute that fulfills your requirements. Self study is a very important part of the preparation phase. Do not depend on the preparation done in the coaching institute solely.

Do not learn fancy words from the dictionary -

With only 20 days left for CLAT, no second should be wasted. Do not mug up difficult words from the dictionary.

Do not spend hours watching the news on television -

If you have a pictographic memory, and watching the news helps you retain facts better, see the super fast section of the news channel. A news channel repeats the same news for hours, plus the long ad breaks. This will be detrimental rather than being beneficial. Alternatively, you can listen to news on the radio, it is short and to the point.

Do not start new topics a day before the examination -

Avoid starting anything new a day before the examination. This day should be reserved to prepare for the battle, not to learn how to fight! So, spend the day solving a mock and revise topics that are important. Keep everything ready for the next day, so as to avoid any delays.

Let us now see the dos and don’ts for CLAT exam day. These are small pointers which will help you perform better in the examination. We have stated them in chronological order, in the sequence of occurrence.

  • Wear comfortable clothes on the day of the examination.

  • Eat light! You don’t want to feel uneasy or drowsy because of the heavy breakfast that you had.

  • Reach the exam centre at least an hour early.

  • Avoid taking part in a pre-exam discussion.

  • While solving the question paper, start with the section you find easiest. This will help you save time and will improve your score.

  • Do not hesitate to switch between sections

  • Be careful with the legal reasoning section. Tie breaker

  • Keep an eye on the questions that you have marked for review

  • Be prepared for surprises. CLAT has a history of being a notorious one sometimes. So be prepared for anything that comes in the examination. The art is to handle such surprises well.
