Strictly speaking, no definite number can be assigned to this question, as every candidate is different, as they bring different skill sets to the table. The solution to this open-ended question then is to take as many mock tests as possible until one gathers enough confidence about one’s accuracy and time management skills, and exam readiness.
Ideally one should start taking mock tests from the very start, for example after completing a topic. The candidate can solve all relevant questions to that topic. As the candidate completes more and more chapters, as the days start rolling, the candidate can solve more and more questions in the mock tests.

Also, solving CLAT 2020 mock tests will teach the candidate which section to tackle first, or what to do with an immovable question.
Mock tests can be used to identify strong and weak areas. While solving mock tests during their preparation for CLAT 2020, candidates will be confronted with sections that will challenge them. In such cases, it depends entirely on the candidate to decide whether they would like to fix their weak areas or leave them due to paucity of time or difficulty level. Nikita Garg, who bagged AIR 1 in the year 2014 has this to say, “I used to take regular mock tests to assess my progress which gave me proper direction towards SWOT (Strength Weakness Opportunity Threat) analysis.” Once she knew her weak areas, she set upon fixing the weaknesses.
Mock tests can help candidates increase their speed. Typically, the more mock tests one takes, the faster one is likely to get and thus complete the CLAT question paper with time to spare.
Saumya Singh, who bagged AIR 1 in CLAT 2019, started taking mock tests since he was in Class XI, “I solved around 30 mock tests when I was in class XI and around 50 in class XII. There is no ideal time to start taking mock tests since nobody can actually complete the CLAT preparation. There is no syllabus. One can easily start taking mock tests after one-two months of preparation. This will help you keep a check on what has been done and what is remaining.
The last week leading up to the exam should comprise extensively of CLAT 2020 mock test, may be up to 3-4 a day, which tallies to around 20-25 for the week. The success in these mock tests will stand testament to the readiness of the candidate for the CLAT 2020 exam. Alternately, if the candidate falters in any area, he/she would need to work on those areas to plug the holes. Also, along with mock tests, one must also continue revision of all important topics, update oneself on current affairs.
Rajendra Khadav, Crack CLAT Tutorials Director, while discussing the role of mock tests in the last week of preparation, quipped, “During the last week of CLAT preparation, one should start taking at least three mock tests on a daily basis, which means by the time they appear for the national-level law entrance exam, they must have gone through 20-21 full-length mock tests.” He stresses, “These tests would help candidates improve their thinking and reacting capability in the stipulated time.”
