General Knowledge (GK) is a crucial section in both the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) and the All India Law Entrance Test (AILET). This section assesses a candidate's awareness of current affairs & general knowledge. It is also crucial from the perspective of a career in law. A lawyer should be well informed of the events happening around them. In this blog, we will discuss valuable tips to enhance your GK preparation.
> Stay Updated with Current Affairs
Focus on national and international news, political developments, legal and constitutional issues, scientific advancements, and major events in various fields. Get a conceptual understanding of events related to history, geography, economics, art, culture, awards, etc, and note down important facts, dates, and figures that may be relevant to the exams.
> Follow Reliable News Sources
Choose reliable sources for gathering information, such as reputable newspapers, news channels, and government websites. Avoid relying solely on social media platforms, as they may not always provide accurate and verified information. Cross-reference information from multiple sources to ensure its authenticity.
> Develop a Habit of Reading
Cultivate a habit of reading books, magazines, and articles on diverse topics, and make sure to do so for at least an hour every day. Reading is the key to getting 30+ marks in CLAT/AILET. Read books on history, geography, politics, science, and other relevant subjects to enhance your understanding of various topics covered in GK. Besides GK, reading can help you get accustomed to any passage given in any section of the paper.
> Practice with Mock Tests

> Group Discussions and Debates

> Revise Regularly


Utilize online resources, such as websites, apps, and e-learning platforms, to access quizzes, current affairs capsules, and study materials.
