Sectionwise preparation for CLAT 2016
English: Revise the basic grammar rules, go through list of idioms, foreign words, phrases etc. solve atleast 30 − 50 Reading Comprehension passages towards the approach of exam and most importantly in a timed manner.
Mathematics: Percentage and Number System forms the most substantial topic and requires a detailed analysis. Revise all the important short-tricks, formulaes and techniques learnt for solving mathematics questions.
Logical Reasoning: Includes Puzzles, Blood Relations, Syllogisms and Critical Reasoning topics (Statement: Course of Action, Arguments, Assumptions etc). Topics can easily and efficiently covered in a short span of time.
General Knowledge: It is best to consider that Current Affairs may come from the whole of the year and the first few months at least till the next year of exam (so for exam in 2016, you must have current affairs completed for whole of 2015 and the first few months of 2016). In the last few days, and with very less time on hands, go through the most predictable questions like Grand Slams winners, Winners of prominent prizes like Oscars, Nobel, Jnanpith, Civilian awards etc, Famous books and authors, noted personalities, terminations and appointments.
Legal Aptitude: Legal Aptitude has a close knit with the reasoning questions. However, since the past three years, a general trend has been seen of paper setters preferring Reasoning over Knowledge. The strategy for this section thus should be going through the Reasoning questions of all the past years ‘papers, if an aspirant has not yet done this. Also revise the Legal Reasoning questions of mocks and model papers available. For Legal Knowledge, cover Legal Knowledge questions of previous years’ CLAT, AILET and SET.
