You’re done with your undergraduate degree in law. Whether it is 3 years or 5 years, it is a such achievement. Now what, you think to yourself? Maybe you think it is time to specialise in your favorite subject. Makes sense. The next step? To appear for the coveted CLAT PG 2022 exam, of course. The only thing better than a Bachelors in Law is a Masters in Law from an NLU.
With the CLAT 2022 registrations now close, it is time to pull up your socks and start preparing. The CLAT 2022 exam date is set for June 9 and if you’re wondering how to prepare for CLAT PG 2022, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
First things first. Acing the CLAT PG 2022 Syllabus.
Well, the good news is that the CLAT PG exam is no longer memory based. It tests you on your understanding and comprehension of law. So if you are someone who is well versed with the latest case laws, acing the CLAT PG 2022 exam is going to be a breeze.
In the previous editions of the exam, we have noticed that there is a greater tendency in the CLAT Consortium to test aspirants on their understanding of the major legal developments. This is not to say that you can overlook landmark constitutional judgements. These are equally important.
So to ensure that you get these passages right, read a lot. And focus on truly assimilating what you are reading. Students who get this right will easily feature on the top of the CLAT 2022 merit list.
Learn to correlate previous knowledge.
No doubt CLAT PG 2022 is no longer memory based. But this does not mean that you can go into the exam unprepared. That is to say, not all questions will be directly from the paragraph in the question paper.
Some questions will require you to recall your previous knowledge. For example, a passage on the critique of Euthanasia may or may not mention the Aruna Shanbaug case. But it may be asked in the questions that follow. This is because, as a graduate in law, you are expected to have previous knowledge of this landmark judgement.
So while preparing for CLAT PG 2022, also go back and revise all major legal points and cases that you studied in school.
Don’t over attempt your CLAT paper.
If you’ve seriously prepared for your CLAT PG exam, don’t fret. Sometimes, the paper is simply difficult. If you don’t know the answer, trust us, the other students don’t either.
Many a times, in just the fear of scoring scoring less marks, CLAT aspirants over attempt the paper. The result? You end up losing even more marks.
CLAT, as an exam, carries negative marking. Over attempting even a single question can cost you dearly. Making an educated guess is different, but attempting a question just for the sake of it is simply foolish.
Our advice- DON’T DO THAT. Stick to what you know and you WILL rank well.
Best of luck!
