I wrote CLAT 2015 and managed to obtain rank 59. Like many others I had to balance a hectic schedule of school, board exams and CLAT, a juggling act doomed to fail without perseverance and most importantly smart studying and planning. I never put in 20 hour study days, I was lucky if I managed to do a 10 hour day of work but in the time I did study I made sure that it was efficient studying, where I quickly analyzed my weak points and worked at it pointedly till it was mastered. I also focused on getting as much practice as possible, doing mock tests and sample questions before the final CLAT paper. When the CLAT paper came, I managed to stay calm enough to attempt the paper, having enough time to spare to check my answers and choose the right options. Getting into one of the best law colleges in India has shown me just how important the test was and how beneficial it is to me to have done well in the paper.
