Preparation Strategy Shared by the Topper
Understand How to Manage Your Time
Dhanishta advised the students to prepare a timetable based on their strengths and capabilities and strictly adhere to the same. A timetable will help them to stay focus on their goal and also help them cover all key subjects in detail.
She herself followed a timetable, which included at least three sections every day. She further explained that she used to keep the least time for Mathematics, as she was good at it and instead, practised Verbal Logic as it was her weaker subject.
She further explains how she used to spend hours sitting on a single chair while studying. But now, her advice to the students is to take short breaks of 10-15 minutes to stay fresh in between.
Regular Practice and Revision
Dhanishta clarifies that their preparation will definitely reap rewards if they practice regularly. Once their theoretical concepts of Mathematics are clear, they must practice and solve as many problems as possible to excel in every chapter.
Attempt Full-Length Mock Tests:
Dhanishta explains that attempting mock tests will further give the aspirants an idea on how to manage their time while attempting the exam in reality. It also helps in building confidence and stamina of the students as they are able to get a real feel and experience of the exam. Going through previous years’ papers and sample papers is also very important. And further aspirants should follow multiple books and online blogs for covering as much syllabus as possible.
Focus More on the General Knowledge Section
Dhanishta told that during her preparation, she focused primarily on the General Knowledge section. This section is considered to be one of the toughest sections of the entrance exam.
According to an analysis of past years’ papers, most of the questions are from current affairs and very few are from static general knowledge. Therefore, reading a standard newspaper on a daily basis like Hindustan Times and magazines like Competition Success Review (CSR) is recommended.
Go Through Online Videos
According to the topper, watching lots of online videos relating to exam preparation can also help. She told how the videos of previous toppers inspired her and helped her aim for 1st position.
There are hundreds of videos on legal reasoning, legal aptitude and other topics. Students may search and find many such videos over the net. The speakers of such video lectures are usually top-class law faculty of our country.
Keep Faith in Yourself
The most important tip that Dhanishta shared is that students must keep faith in themselves. She mentioned that students will not be able to secure good marks if they lag self-confidence. Believing in themselves is the best thing they can do!
Keep All Options Open
Dhanishta suggests students attempt as much entrance exams as they can. She explains that she herself also appeared in five Law entrances – SET, AILET, CLAT, MH-CET and LSAT and finally topped in AILET, which is considered to be the toughest amongst them all.
She explains that though appearing in multiple exams will require the students to prepare differently for each exam, for instance, online mode (like in CLAT) versus offline mode, negative marking versus neutral marking, difficulty level, and other criteria, the students can increase their chances of getting selected in at least one exam. And in case you are selected in multiple of those, candidates have the liberty of choosing from options available to them.
