Karan: How was your CLAT journey, and how did you manage to prepare for CLAT and board exams together?

Rahul: The journey was really great. I focused on all other sections except GK in the first year. I had in mind that I had to be ready for the CLAT exam within one year only. Then, I gave CLAT in 2021 and scored AIR 200, but I had in mind that I had to improve by 10-15 marks more so that I could get into NLUs. Last year, I was focusing on improving my score, and I made a lot of sacrifices in my life. According to Rahul, starting your CLAT preparation in Class 11 is the best way to secure a good rank in the entrance exam.

Karan: Why do you want to become a lawyer? What inspired you to become a lawyer?

Rahul: Since I was in 8th and 9th standards, I have been participating in many debates, and these things excite me more. I connect to society, and, at the same time, I am interested in gaining some theoretical knowledge. So, in this period of law, we can apply theoretical knowledge in a very creative manner. That is why I wanted to pursue Law as a Career. Also, I took legal studies in my 11th class just to see whether I could enjoy it or not. And I enjoyed it more than my other subjects, which motivated me further.

Karan: What all the areas did you focus on while preparing for the CLAT and what were the things that you kept in mind to crack the exam?

Rahul: Here, I would like to discuss three things I followed during my preparation without compromise and what I did daily.

  • The first thing is reading the newspaper. For the entire two years, there was no single day when I didn't read the newspaper.
  • The second important thing I followed was giving mocks. In the first year, I was giving mocks weekly once, but then I gradually increased to 2 mocks every week.
  • Attending classes. I didn't miss any of the classes for the entire two years.

Karan: Did you write the AILET Exam?

Rahul: No. I didn't fill out the AILET application form because I was very confident that I could secure a good rank in the CLAT Entrance Exam.

Karan: Have you always been into reading?

Rahul: Yes, I read a lot, especially non-fiction books, which helped me in CLAT as well. Newspaper reading and knowing about world events were my hobbies. Also, I used to attend many competitions, so I did a lot of research. I feel English, logical reasoning, and legal aptitude depend entirely on our English ability ad reading skills, and these three sections consist of 100 marks in the CLAT exam. Therefore, if we are good at these three sections, we can always do well in the exam.

Karan: What are the five things that CLAT aspirants should not do?

Rahul:

  • Some people don't analyze the mocks, which we should not do. As a CLAT aspirant, you should analyze your performance in a mock test because it will tell you your strengths and weakness.
  • Don't stress much about the exam. You should be relaxed through your preparation and in the exam.
  • Don't avoid reading the newspaper's editorial section because it is as important as studying current affairs from other sections.
  • Don't spend too much time thinking about important topics of current affairs. You should not be limited to just 10-15 topics. 
  • Don't get rejected by your mock score.

Karan: How good were you with quantitative techniques?

Rahul: I was good at quantitative techniques, but what helped me was that both in CLAT 2021 and 2022, there were no questions on time, distance, or work. They just asked the basic questions on average and ratios. But increasing calculation speed is important to score well in this section. 

Karan: What was the lowest mock score in your second year?

Rahul: There were a couple of CLAT Mock Tests where I scored between 75 and 80. When you give a mock, you aim for at least 90+ marks.

Karan: How many hours do you need to study every day for CLAT?

Rahul: In my case, if I study with a schedule, I get pressured. It doesn't justify that you get good ranks if you study more than 8-9 hours. You can score good grades if you study less time with proper focus. Parents need to have confidence in their children and not pressure them as it can ruin their preparation. I just used to give 4 hours for CLAT preparation daily, and it worked for me.

Karan: What is your advice for upcoming CLAT aspirants?

Rahul: All aspirants are different, but one method which worked for me was being relaxed all the time. I did not create any particular timetable, but I created pockets of my time. For example, 2-5 PM fixed for a particular topic and 6-8 PM for another topic. No one should be anxious about exams because they are just a part of life. You should have a good social circle, interact with them daily, spend quality time with family, and pay attention to school studies.
