How to prepare for CLAT 2020 in one week - The Art of Revising

One of the reasons why revision is essential is because candidates get to analyse their strong and weak points. It helps them in recognising and acknowledging the loop holes in their preparation strategy to improve their final round of revision. With only a week to preparation, all the time should be spent in revising the course daily; going through all the content you have learnt and recalling it to keep it fresh in the memory. CLAT is not only a test of your knowledge and analytical skills but also a test of your ability to manage time and your response time. To be able to attempt questions in the examination with maximum accuracy, one needs to be able to recover information from the memory without consuming much time in the process. Revision cuts down this time.

Since a major portion of the questions are from the general knowledge and current affairs section, revision will improve the chances of scoring better in the exam.

Your can also use this time to strengthen the subjects that need work.

Moreover, the more you practise them, the better your understanding gets about CLAT and its course.

About mock tests, candidates must practise as many mock tests as possible for the same reason why solving previous years’ question papers are important. Analyse the result of each mock test and try to work on the reasons and subjects that caused negative marking.

By doing this you will work on building a strong foundation and will be prepared for all those tricky questions in the examination.

How to prepare for CLAT 2020 in one week - The importance of regular breaks

Students tend to stress themselves out because of lack of time. As they begin preparing for CLAT 2020 in seven days, their schedule is packed with no time to waste. The pressure to cover the course is such that students exhaust themselves completely before the exam day. In order to avoid this condition, CLAT aspirants must take proper intervals during their study schedule and unwind their stress by doing stress busting activities such as yoga, playing a sport, take a power nap, etc. Having a proper sleep of 7-8 hours is very important. Get up early in the morning to study, and try to take in the energy as the day starts. It has been proven time and again that studying in the morning is more effective than studying at night.

How to prepare for CLAT 2020 in one week - Believe in yourself

Do not doubt yourself or your preparation. Self doubt leads to a poor performance in the examination. Do not listen to the preparation strategies of others and feel intimidated. Believe in your preparation and try to give your 100 % during the examination.

How to prepare for CLAT 2020 in one week - Calm and focus - Two success ingredients

To perform better and to be able to give your best, you need to stay calm. Anxiety and panic during or before the examination can cause you to forget things. On the other hand, staying calm will help you recall things quickly and will help you score better.

All the Best for CLAT 2019!
