LAT 2020 Preparation Tips

  • First, become familiar with the LAT exam pattern and syllabus. The exam pattern will tell the candidate how to prepare, for instance, since LAT 2020 will include objective type questions, so one should focus more on objective questions rather than getting stuck on subjective questions during exam preparation. Meanwhile, the syllabus will tell what to prepare and what to ignore.
  • The candidate may mark topics, say, as important, neutral and less important, as this will enable him or her to invest their energies on scoring topics. 
  • Regular practice and revision is the key, so integrate them in your process. Divide the course into a certain number of blocks, and assign a specific time period to each of the blocks. Try to follow the time-table. Also, do timely revision. 
  • Practice last years' question papers. Take mock-test sessions wherein you finish a question paper within the same time duration as that of the exam. Many candidates mistake simply skimming through the sample papers instead of practising them. But, solving these question papers will not only teach candidates how to solve tricky questions but will also habituate them to the pattern, which can aid in time managent. 

By consulting the exam pattern of LAT 2020 the applicant will get insights into the exam, like the type of questions asked, marking scheme, exam duration, sections and topics covered, etc. This information can be used for aligning one's preparation with exam requirements, which would increase the chances of success.
