So without further ado, let’s dive in to know about the strategy for CLAT 2022 that one should follow.
Be familiar with the CLAT syllabus:
This is a crucial step that must be remembered and carried out. Given that the student will be studying at home, it is recommended that you devote as much time as necessary to familiarizing yourself with the syllabus and developing a thorough understanding of it. Students end up studying a lot of irrelevant topics that CLAT never asks because they don’t take the words written or included in the syllabus seriously and then complain that they didn’t see any questions related to the topics they studied and that the question paper was very off-beat and random. By simply reading the syllabus once with a calm mind, you can avoid the majority of these minor but significant errors.
Prepare for CLAT 2022:
A student should plan his or her preparation after learning the syllabus. The goal should be to pass CLAT on the first try and make preparations accordingly. They should be broken down into sub-plans and be attainable. Success is defined as putting sub-plans into action exactly as you designed them. Sub-plans that are unrealistic lead to a lack of self-confidence and motivation. If even one or two details of your sub plans are included without taking into account your capacity, this will cause delays in your preparation. As a result, when creating sub-plans, keep them realistic and attainable.
Understand the concepts and stay up-to-date on CLAT news:
CLAT assesses a person’s mental abilities, whereas most exams assess a person’s memory. In the latter, concepts can be compromised, and factual data will suffice to get you good marks. One must possess both conceptual and factual knowledge in order to pass the CLAT. Given that there is no standard book or source that is going to help you cover all the general knowledge or current affairs, it is necessary to improve one’s ability to strike a balance between concepts and currents. If you consistently read the newspaper for a week and then don’t read it for even one day, your chances of passing CLAT on the first attempt are drastically reduced. Students must follow the Core-Concept-Current strategy. Establish a firm grip on the core and concepts, and connect them to the current situation. Reading the newspaper will help you improve your ability to solve long-term comprehension problems.
It’s a given that you’ll base your preparations on mocks. He should, however, have a firm grasp on the month in which he will finish the revision and begin the mock. When selecting mocks, it is critical to remember that “quality” over “quantity” is the most important consideration. Your CLAT mocks should follow the current exam pattern. Many coaching institutes purposefully make practice tests difficult in order to instill in the student the belief that he or she is not studying hard enough. This is so that he or she can receive expert advice on how to pass the CLAT exam, thereby becoming a potential customer. It’s critical not to let them sway your thinking, and even two good mock tests will suffice.
Many students do not evaluate the mocks after they have completed them. It is always a good idea to do so. In terms of where your preparation stands, evaluation always serves as a mirror. Although it is a management concept, it can easily be applied to test series. SWOT Analysis is the term used to describe this concept.
Determine your strengths – these are the questions that will help you succeed. Recognize your weaknesses and work to overcome them by repeatedly practicing the same questions and topics. Look for the Opportunity in question – those that are practical and a little challenging, and you can turn them into your strengths by being present and focused.
Mark a question or a topic as a threat after you’ve done it several times and it’s still not giving you results/marks but is taking up a lot of your time.
To pass the CLAT exam on the first try, you must thoroughly review the syllabus, create realistic and achievable sub-plans, and practice with high-quality mock exams. The vast majority of mock tests from various institutes will yield no good results and will drain your time, which can be detrimental to your preparation. Maintain your motivation, which will come from attainable goals. Examine your mocks with a critical eye and concentrate on the areas where you need to improve.
Staying at home and studying for the CLAT is understandably monotonous. Breathers should be added to your schedule after every 2 hours of focused studies to help with this.
