Following these important points while preparing for CLAT 2020 a week prior to the exam date can help you in enhancing your performance and getting a better score.

Last Minute Revision: Make sure you spend some time in revising the topics and syllabus at the last moment. Everything should be fresh in your memory and for that you will have to briefly go through the syllabus of CLAT 2020 at least once right before the exam.

This will also prepare you for the questions that can be asked in the exam.

Practice: When appearing for any entrance exam, there is always scopr for practising more. The more you practice, the better you get at solving the questions and scoring better. This will also help you in identifying the areas in which you need to pay more attention. Apart from increasing your accuracy, practising questions and sample papers also aid in time management while giving the exam.

Revise all Formulae: Make sure that you go through all the formulae for the Quantitative Techniques section of CLAT 2020. Be well-versed with all the important formulae and mathematical tricks so that you are able to solve all the quantitative questions easily.

Try to Improve your Accuracy: During the last few days before the CLAT exam, you must focus on improving your accuracy and assuring that you land at the correct answer with whatever approach you use. As CLAT includes negative marking for wrong answers in its marking scheme, getting the correct answer to as many questions as possible makes all the difference in the exam score. You must not hurry with the questions and and solve them properly.

Go Through the Exam Day Instructions: The Consortium has released a set of instructions that are to be followed on the CLAT 2020 exam day.
