SLAT 2024: Preparation Tips

Candidates can use the tips listed below to help them perform well in the SLAT 2024 exam.

Set up a schedule

To manage your time between studying and other activities, you must first create a timetable for all the sections, including the ones that require extra attention. This will help you to improve your score and ranking.

This program must be followed for at least 6-7 months. Additionally, spend at least an hour each day answering as many questions from prior years as you can for the SLAT Exam.

Use reliable sources

Ensure that you make use of reliable sources and identify the ones you will utilize to aid in your preparation rather than cause confusion.

You can do this by asking your seniors or anyone else who has taken the SLAT Exam for books and study materials.

Note and re-evaluate

A well-written note cuts the work involved in studying by half. Therefore, it is advised that you take notes (short notes containing major points) and then update them.

This can help you remember the knowledge more easily by keeping it fresh in your mind and allowing you to quickly go over it whenever required.

Read a newspaper

If you attempt to study everything at once, compiling news of global and national interest may prove to be a difficult task.

Therefore, it is advised that you read the newspaper every day, follow Current Affairs, and take notes on the relevant news so that you may review it later.

Practice mock exams

Attempting mocks regularly allows you to decrease your chances of making mistakes during the test, and improve your speed. A detailed analysis of your attempt can help evaluate your preparation so you can focus on the areas where you scored lower.

Familiarize yourself with the format

Knowing the questions frequently asked in the SLAT exam pattern is the first step toward victory. You can identify the topics that require more improvement by reviewing the questions from the previous five years, which will aid in this process.
