GK and the current affairs section are the most important in most of the law entrance exams including CLAT and AILET. It carries significant weight in the previously specified exams, consisting of 40 and 35 questions in CLAT and CLAT respectively. Getting 30+ in current affairs is the difference between a medium-level NLU and one of the top 5 NLUs. If you are doing AILET or CLAT preparation you must prepare for GK and current affairs.

Uncertainty about exam dates is a complex issue that haunted us, the first batch of lockdown entrance test-takers, how can I keep my GK preparation sharp despite the ambiguity in the exam? Every day we would wake up to the news of exams being postponed or maybe even canceled. Along with its obvious demotivating effect on the students, it also surprised us that our current affairs syllabus is getting bigger with every passing month. How do you separate important news from non-news? And most importantly, did we need to know anything and everything about the pandemic and how our government and many governments were handling it.

Here are some pointers that can help you navigate the waves of the ocean of knowledge that is current affairs (it was cringe, yes):

GK Capsules

Daily GK capsules should be avoided and you should look for monthly weekly capsules. Daily capsules fill you up with too much information which can lead to information overload. The weekly and monthly capsules highlight the more unimportant and focus on the more important news and schemes of the government. CP’s GK Perfect and Monthly GK collection with daily Hindu analysis are more than enough to keep you updated on current affairs. If you are weak in any subject, you can join CLAT online course for CLAT or AILET preparation.

Maintain Regularity

It’s okay to feel overwhelmed by the amount of ca in front of you right now and don’t hesitate to take the occasional break from it. Make sure you do a weekly assessment of your own knowledge and regularly study important information that you can come across. Regularity is key, if you are able to create a consistent pattern for your GK Prep, breaks in between should not bother you.

Spider web of information

GK is mainly based on connections and correlations. When you learn a new fact, you try to add other facts to it. Doing this helps you build a network of facts and believe me, you would be surprised how much these facts can be related. Collecting and correlating data will help you remember much more information than just hiding individual facts.

Search keywords

Sometimes, at times it is really, really hard to remember all the details about a plan or a space program. In such cases remember certain keywords that may trigger a part of that old bean and remind you of important details about a certain program or figure. These words can be anything, from the minister launching a plan to the space station from where a particular satellite is launched. These keywords will help you save a lot of time when you are struggling to remember some facts on the day of the exam. Consistent revision helps to mold them into your subconscious thought and when you read them on paper, your brain is bound to make that ding sound!

The GK section may sound tough but with smart work, you should have no problem in securing it. Take regular tests and try to get a sectional score of 25-30 in them. 25-30 in mocks (without cheating) is bound to translate into almost perfect scores in real tests. It may seem daunting at first, but every mountain feels bigger than the bottom. If you are scoring 15-20 in GK right now, don’t be alarmed, you have a lot of time to improve, alternatively, don’t be hardwired into thinking that you can pick up your GK whenever you want, this will help you further A terrible slip in mediocrity and stagnation of scores may have to rise.
