Published on 1st July, 2023, 2023 | 3:30 pm


CLAT/AILET 2024 is closing in on us. If you haven’t started preparing yet, it is late! But you don't have to worry as we have a comprehensive 5-month plan. Every month is supposed to be a different milestone if you want to make progress with your CLAT ranks. 

Start and aggressively get a conceptual understanding of the GK and Legal Aptitude section. For most aspirants, these are new topics they will be tested on, and mostly, not a lot would have been covered earlier in school. It is best to know the syllabus, and where you stand. Catch up on as much as you can by looking at previous year’s question papers. GK: Focus on history, science, UN and International organizations. Legal Aptitude: Legal jargon, Legal Maxims, law of tors, etc. By the end of the month, ensure that you are through with at least the topics in a broader sense. Also, make sure to take mocks right from the beginning. It is essential to help you gauge yourself. 

Start Maths, Verbal, and Logical Reasoning section. These are the sections that you are more likely to be familiar with. Maths: Prepare for Basic maths, age problems, ratio and proportion, speed, distance and time, etc. Reading Comprehension: Reading comprehension, Basic grammar, Direct and indirect speech, etc. Logical Reasoning: Blood relations, analogies, direction problems, logical puzzles, inference, and judgment, etc. Aggressively build your reading speed. 

Practice, Revise, and keep building. It is unlikely that you will be able to complete the syllabus in two months, and successfully retain it. Therefore, make sure to practice questions for every topic you complete, and then go back to these topics every week as a form of revision. This is the point where you should be noticing improvement in your mock scores. However, if you aren’t able to, don’t worry! Take help from our mock analysis and get personalized strategies to give your most accurate attempts. 

Solve Mocks and Revise. By now, you should be feeling comfortable with attempting the majority of sections. Every candidate is weak in certain sections and can face stagnant scores. This is completely normal. Keep practicing, and continue building on your GK, Legal Aptitude, and other sections’ concepts. Revisit all the formulae, theorems, and English vocabulary. You should also be thorough with the test paper pattern and in sync with what strategies work for you. 

Try to attempt at least 1 mock every day. This will make you comfortable with the test-taking experience, and improve your speed. Take expert recommendations if you find yourself specifically lacking in a certain area. 

At this stage, the last thing remaining is to take care of your health right before the exam, get rest, and keep all necessary documents ready for D-day. 

All the best!
