hrithik jain 25th Feb, 2020


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.

Srishti jha 24th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant, I hope you are doing good.

It's good to know you are interested in CLAT . But yes, clearing boards with marks is more important , but now take just 1 hours extra to prepare for CLAT. But after giving 12th exam, make to get into a crash course of CLAT . This will really help you a lot.

I hope this helps.
