How to Crack CLAT 2021 in First Attempt - Easy Tips
A big part of the success in CLAT will be determined by the quality of preparation and execution of things. The CLAT preparation should be effective, covering the entire syllabus and other gamuts of the preparation such as solving mock tests, sample papers, revision etc. Candidates should chart out a plan that helps in covering all aspects of the CLAT preparation in a time-bound manner. Check the preparation tips for CLAT 2021 given below.
Follow a Study Routine
CLAT preparation takes around 6-7 months or sometimes even longer. Candidates should utilise their time to optimum. The study plan should be divided into days, hours. Daily routine for CLAT should cover each subject while also reserving some time for solving mock tests and revision.
Complete CLAT Syllabus in a Timely Manner
It is a prerequisite for cracking CLAT 2021 to cover the syllabus well before the exam day. Completing the syllabus early gives an advantage as the remaining time can be invested in analysing and solving mock tests.
Solve a Good Number CLAT Mock Tests
With a comprehensive based test, CLAT 2021 would test the reading and analytical skills of the candidates. Such skills are usually developed during school days. However, to shape such skills as per the requirements of CLAT 2021, one should solve a good number of sample papers and previous year question papers of CLAT. Solving sample papers would make the preparation more exam oriented and thus more effective. On the importance of the CLAT mock tests, Shaija Beria says “I solved more than 50 mocks and CLAT sample papers throughout the preparation and I used to score between 100 to 120 in CLAT mocks on an average”. Similarly, for Anand Kumar CLAT 2020, AIR 5, the sample papers became a tool to understand the new pattern.
Read Daily Newspaper
With the new exam pattern, CLAT mentor, Rajneesh Singh believes that those who clear the entrance exam will be able to read the exhaustive and meaningful texts fast but with an accuracy of 70-85%. Newspapers play an important role in improving reading skills. Thus, candidates should read a good daily English language newspaper such as The Hindu or The Indian Express. The articles and editorials along with the legal news are very important. The CLAT paper will be based on paragraphs which are framed from various articles that are published in the newspaper.
Preparation Tips for Legal Reasoning
The legal reasoning section will largely be based on the current affairs most relevant to the legal fraternity. Less focus will be given on prior knowledge of the laws. Reading newspaper articles, legal journals and tracking important developments in the legal arena will help the candidates to get a hold of this section. Candidates are advised to study the legal issues of the past one year and develop familiarity with such issues. In addition, candidates should solve sectional mock tests for CLAT legal aptitude. Due care should be given to the time management because reading convoluted texts on legal issues may eat up a big chunk of your limited time.
Prepare Well for Quantitative Techniques
Only 13 to 17 questions will be asked from quantitative techniques. However, from this section, candidates may collect some good marks. It is also noticed that the quantitative section which carries relatively less weightage draws less attention from the students who like to focus more on GK, legal aptitude and current affairs. However, this section becomes an important factor in determining the candidate’s success. Candidates should try to get 8-9 marks from this section.

IPM Exam for management studies, that is integrated management course BBA+MBA and on the other hand CLAT is for integrated law course, both the courses are for a duration of five years, they both belong to different field, one is management and other one is law, but the best thing about both the exam is there is no such specific subject combinations requirements, so even if you decide to pursue humanities stream you're still eligible to appear for IPMAT if you have 60% aggregate in 10th and 12th , in case of reserved categories there is relaxation of 5%, and for CLAT you need to pass 10+2 with 45% aggregate from a recognized board, in law you can also consider the option of BBA-LLB or BCom-LLB, this course are great if you want to work in corporate world, so to answer your question there is no barrier to belong to specific stream, it all depends on your choice, if you want to go for commerce then you can do that, and in future you can appear for IPMAT and simultaneously you can also consider BBA-LLB/BCom-LLB if any of it interests you.
