Acing the Common Law Admission Test: What not to do.
The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is increasingly becoming popular among students. With a rise in number of applications each year, the competitiveness of the exam is elevating every year.
If you want to crack the CLAT and crack it convincingly, here are things you should NOT do.
- Replicating Topper Study Methods:
The one mistake all CLAT aspirants tend to make is reading interviews of toppers and replicating their study methods. That is the most awful thing you can do! It’s good to take inspiration and guidelines but blindly copying will just frustrate you. Study according to your pace, your comfort level and your preferred time.
- Studying From A Million Books:
There is absolutely no use in ordering unnecessary books and cluttering your desk. Stick to one book, grasp all the concepts thoroughly and once you are done with that book, think about the next one. Buying a dozen books will just confuse you more!
- Sideling Your Academics:
Many students tend to completely ignore their school coursework and just study for CLAT. This is not required! Pay attention to your academics. CLAT is not an entrance exam like JEE or AIPMT which requires your undivided attention. Let the concepts be at your fingertips and you will be in an advantageous position.
Cramming should be the last thing you do if you want a shot at CLAT. Randomly mugging up the static GK portions is not going to work in your favour. Start reading a bit of GK everyday from the very beginning itself to avoid cramming and all-nighters. Nothing can beat a consistent and staggered preparation.
While these tips may work for some people, they are avoidable at best. Good luck!
