Here are a few preparation tips that will help students to score well in the CUET 2024 Legal Studies exam:

Understand the Exam

The CUET exam is a bit different than any other entrance exam. Therefore, it becomes necessary for students to learn how the exam works. By 'understanding the exam' we mean the syllabus and exam pattern. If one is thorough about the syllabus and exam pattern, the next step is to prepare according to it. 

Follow a Time Table

Once the board exam starts, candidates won't get much time to prepare for CUET 2024 Legal Studies exam. A timetable must be created which allows one to prepare for both CUET and board exams simultaneously. 


Practice is the main key to scoring well in any entrance exam. To prepare for the Legal Studies section, candidates must practice mock-test papers and previous years' question papers well. Practicing them will help in a better understanding of exam patterns and the difficulty level of the CUET 2024 exam. 

Improve Time Management

CUET has a vast syllabus and a lot of time goes into preparing for all the sections. While practicing for each section, make sure to time yourself. Timing yourself will help in understanding how much time it takes to answer all the questions. Therefore, you can increase your speed and accuracy.

Other Tips

  • Improve legal vocabulary by reading magazines and newspapers.
