Dos and Don'ts for CLAT 2023

With just a few days left for the exam, candidates might find it difficult to remember all the important guidelines of CLAT 2023. Therefore, CollegeDekho has prepared a comprehensive list of what a candidate should do on the exam day and what all he/ she should steer away from. They must go through the list provided below to recollect the dos and don'ts of CLAT 2023.

CLAT 2023: Dos

  • The candidate must have downloaded and taken a printout of his/ her CLAT 2023 admit card at least a day before the exam. Keeping this for the last day can create unwanted hassle and stress for candidates.
  • It is best to keep aside all the items that are to be taken at the CLAT 2023 exam centre a day prior to the exam date. This will help candidates to not forget something at the last minute and have everything they require.

  • The applicants must go through all the instructions mentioned on their admit card of CLAT. The authorities at the exam centre will follow the guidelines strictly.

  • Knowing the exam day procedure properly will help candidates in saving time and they will also not be confused about what has to be done at the exam centre.

  • One of the most important things that have to be done on the CLAT 2023 exam day is reaching the exam centre on time. The student must leave for the exam centre well in advance, leaving enough margin for reaching the centre before the reporting time. Being late at the exam centre will render them anxious and that will have a poor impact on their performance. Therefore, it is highly recommended to reach the exam venue at least an hour before the exam begins.

  • Owing to the coronavirus situation, it will be better if you carry few things with you. Despite the facility of keeping your belongings at the exam centre, it is advised to opt for this only if there is no other way out. Your belongings will come in contact with those of many other candidates and thus, it will increase the risk of spreading the virus. Additionally, the exam centre does not guarantee the safety of your items.

  • Ensure that you carry your own bottle of hand sanitiser at the exam centre and keep using it frequently. The sanitizer bottle should be 50 ML only.

  • Candidates who do not wear a mask will not be allowed to enter the exam centre. Therefore, make sure you do not forget to wear a mask and keep it on for as long as you are at the centre. Since candidates will have to wear the mask for a long time at a stretch, they must pick a mask that is comfortable as well as keeps them safe.

  • The candidates can also wear gloves while entering the exam centre and they can have them on throughout the exam.

  • Candidates are allowed to carry their own water bottles to the exam centre but it must be transparent.

  • Every applicant must carry an identity card that has been issued by the government.

  • In stationery items, only one black and one blue ballpoint pens are permitted to be carried inside the exam centre.

  • No other item apart from those listed above must be with the candidate when the reporting begins at the exam centre.

  • If any candidate is sick, he/ she must have a medical declaration form stating he/ she is not suffering from COVID -19.

The exam centre will have the facility of keeping the mobile phones and other items of test-takers but it is best to be careful as there is a chance of losing your belongings in such cases.

  • Carrying any other item apart from the ones mentioned in the admit card will not only be troublesome for the candidate on the exam day but it will also lead to the wastage of his/ her time. Therefore, all applicants must carry with themselves only those items that are required.

  • If a candidate is feeling sick while giving the exam, he/ she must not keep it to himself/ herself. An examiner or authority must be informed about it immediately so that necessary steps can be taken in required.

  • The applicants must not leave his/ her seat during the exam. If he/ she has any query, he/ she can raise a hand and speak to the examiner who will approach.
