Law aspirants join the best of coaching institutions. They buy the best of books. They take the best of guidance. But hey! These 5 things are so ridiculously simple that if you miss them, you miss the bus.
1.) A blunt pencil
Forget the advice ‘Sharpen your pencils’ of your mom when you were a school kid. In CLAT (common law admission test) you have to shade the ‘ovals’ and the ‘circles’. A blunt pencil does the faster and easier. Make sure your pencil is blunt. Make sure you have at least three blunt pencils. Oh and do remember to take the handy erasers, lest you decide to change your answers!!
2.) A cold water bottle
Its May and its India. Its hot and its humid. The CLAT examination hall will most probably not be air conditioned. Wring an exam will be exhausting and uncomfortable. Carry a cold water bottle. Preferably a thermos. Drink water. The elixir.
3.) A wrist watch
The CLAT exmaination hall will have a big wall clock. But you don’t have to crane your neck and look at it all the time. You don’t have to keep a tab on how many minutes its fast or late. Buy a wrist watch. Save time. Do a favour to the muscles of your neck.
4.) A fruit just before
CLAT will probably start at 10 am. If you had your breakfast (a light one of course) at 8 am, you should have a small banana or some other fruit at around 9.30. Don’t be hungry for food in CLAT. Be hungry for marks. Banana quenches the hunger for food. It uplifts energy to do justice to the hunger for marks.
5.) The breath
Close your eyes. Breathe in (deep and slow). Stop. Breathe out (deep and slow). It relaxes you well. Try it. Relaxing is important in the CLAT exam. Try this every 30 minutes for a fresh, faster brain and a fresh faster body!
