Dos and Don’ts for CLAT 2020
The guidelines related to CLAT can be divided into two parts; what you must do and what you should avoid doing. So, let’s start with what you must do for an effective CLAT preparation.
Dos for CLAT 2020
The examination is only a few months 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 2020! All things can wait but this time, if lost, cannot be compensated. So stay focused and give your 100%. The best way is to make a way is to prepare a study plan for the remaining time and be consistent during the course of your preparation.
You may have a lot to cover a lot of syllabus, 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 2020. In the remaining time, mock tests are the real boosters. The comprehension based test paper of CLAT is expected to be a time consuming one, so solving the mock tests will make you accustomed to the new exam pattern and you can learn more about time management. Also, you can analyse the outcomes of the mock. Find out the topics that are pulling your score down in the mock.
A healthy mind lives in a healthy body.
The long study hours and a hectic schedule may turn detrimental for your health thus affecting the preparation negatively. So, it is very important to stay aware of the health status. Keep an eye on diet plans and take out some time for exercise and sports, it will keep you physically active and mentally healthy.
Let us now discuss the pre-exam don’ts for CLAT -
Do not depend solely on a single source for mock tests
Many preparation institutes organize mock tests every day for a month before the examination. 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 they end up coming home tired and exhausted, 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 collect too many books and study material
During the course of your preparation, try not to buy and read a variety of books; for eg, reading polity form Laxamikant and then again taking D D Basu for the same subject will not benefit you especially when you have a time crunch. Rather than looking for a variety of material, you can revise the topics from a single source and will certainly benefit you.
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, that too of some specific channels such as DD News or Rajyasdabha TV. 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.
