“CLAT pattern changed for 2013! Calculus, Vectors, Theory of Relativity, Organic Chemistry, Molecular Cytogenetics, Astrology and the Theory of Monopsony are all part of the new curriculum!” Does your world comes crashing down? CLAT seems all the less achievable? Right? Yes, this is that time of the year where rumor mongers have a field day. The single most important piece of advice I can give you now is DO NOT LISTEN!
CLAT tests your aptitude, smartness and general awareness (It also tests your patience and fortitude during the G.K. preparations!). However, CLAT is neither rocket science nor there’s any beeline for it. So stop freaking out and get down to the basics. (Read this sentence again, might help!)
- To all those who think a two month crash course is enough to get through the top law colleges of the country (After all, who gives CLAT? People who don’t get through engineering and medical, right?), please reconsider. Perseverance and dedication is important to do well in CLAT as it is for every other exam.
- And all those who have already started preparing for a while and are unsure about themselves, are under confident or more freaked out than normal (I belonged to that category), loosen up! No one can predict the outcome of the exam, no matter how hard you work. Giving your best is all that matters. And if you don’t make it, blame it on the stars!
- Finally, all those who have just started preparing (and probably, this is your first visit to CLATGyan), Congratulations! You have taken the first step towards securing a place in one of the top law schools of the country. Yes, you have started at the right time with ample time left to cover all the concepts. Now, it’s all about consistency. Clutter your table, get confused and you’ll end up dropping a year. Keep it clean and you’ll be through.
Buckle up for the most topsy-turvy time of your life where G.K might seem insurmountable, Legal aptitude might take the form nightmares and Maths might seem undoable. However, at the end of the day, everything is achievable if pursued with determination, sincerity and hard work (You can safely take my word for it). So study hard, study smart and yes, do stay away from the rumor mongers!
