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.

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.

All the Best for CLAT 2019!

I can suggest you some tips which will help you in preparing better for the same:

1. Check out the last year questions papers: it will help you to analyze a pattern and types of questions they ask in the Paper.

2. Take all the monthly magazine for the whole year: this will help you to read the news faster.

3. Check out the current affairs website/e-paper to get bulletins or short summary of the affairs.

4. Write down notes (but it might take longer time so do it as per the time limit)

5. Make sure that you complete a good amount of reading in a day. Do not go on for reading and remembering the whole news. Look out for a pattern of reading the current affairs which will help you in the exam as you have less time and a lot of syllabus to cover.
