Unlocking Success in CLAT/AILET 2024: Mastering the GK and Current Affairs Section
While it is important to dedicate time and effort to all sections of the CLAT exam, prioritizing the GK section can be advantageous, allowing you to optimize your time for more demanding sections like legal aptitude and critical reasoning. This article aims to provide invaluable insights and tips to enhance your GK and current affairs preparation for the upcoming CLAT/AILET exam.
Recognizing the significance of the GK section, it is imperative to maintain unwavering consistency and a diligent revision routine. Begin by researching and finalizing a list of reliable sources to refer to, ensuring thoroughness and sincerity in your approach. Although the subject may appear deceptively easy, cracking this section necessitates a well-structured study schedule and preparation strategy. The GK section comprises questions from both static GK and current affairs, demanding a firm grasp of topics such as sports, history, politics, economics, and more. Analyzing past-year papers indicates that the relevance of the static portion of a topic increases when it is related to current events.
To make your preparation journey smoother, allow us to guide you through the CLAT/AILET GK Preparation Tips shared by our expert faculty at Clat Possible. Let us embark on this journey of knowledge enhancement, leaving no room for delay.

The AILET exam pattern stipulates a total of 150 questions, out of which 35 to 39 questions are allocated to the GK section. Allocating more focus to current affairs becomes crucial for scoring well in this section. The key to scoring 30+ marks lies in the power of reading the newspaper on a regular basis.
The recent reduction in CLAT's question count from 150 to 120 has sparked concerns among students regarding the difficulty level. It is crucial for them to recognize that the balance of simple, moderately challenging, and highly difficult questions remains intact. As the number of aspirants and available seats in the NLUs remain unchanged, the difficulty affects all equally. Notably, this reduction significantly decreases the likelihood of making errors. Additionally, the General Knowledge section of CLAT will now consist of approximately 30 questions.
One of the most common misconceptions about the GK section in CLAT/AILET is that it solely requires a sharp memory or rote memorization of data. While memorization does have its place, enduring success in this section heavily relies on the utilization of context clues and the practice of regular revisitation, which involves periodically reviewing and reinforcing information to solidify its retention.
Mock tests serve as invaluable resources to enhance your CLAT/AILET GK preparation. At CLAT Possible, we provide our students with brilliant mock exams that simulate the actual exam environment, offering a perspective on the types of questions that may be asked. These mock exams are designed to prepare students to attempt the exam with confidence while also allowing them to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
Designing an effective timetable for CLAT preparation sets the tone for success. Allocate at least 1–2 hours daily to GK, ensuring consistent progress. To excel in the GK section of the CLAT exam, there are several effective strategies to adopt.
Firstly, it is crucial to develop the daily habit of reading the newspaper. This not only keeps you well-informed about current events both nationally and internationally, but it also enhances your reading comprehension skills. Creating your own comprehensive notes is another valuable practice. This not only aids in retention but also serves as a valuable resource during the revision phase. By capturing the key information in your own words, you can better internalize and remember important concepts. It is equally important to focus on understanding the reasons behind significant dates or events rather than simply memorizing them.
At CLAT Possible, we provide our students with an additional advantage through our monthly GK Perfect Magazines. These magazines are thoughtfully curated to cater specifically to the needs of the CLAT and AILET exams. They cover a wide range of relevant topics, including current affairs, sports, history, art and culture, economics, government policies, science and technology, reports and indices, books, geography, awards, national and international events, and organizations. In addition to this, each magazine contains 100 MCQs to help the students apply their knowledge. By utilizing these magazines as part of your preparation, you can further enhance your knowledge and understanding of important subjects.
In summary, incorporating the habit of daily newspaper reading, dedicating time to studying recent current affairs, creating comprehensive notes, and focusing on understanding the underlying reasons behind events are key strategies for success in the GK section of the CLAT exam. Combined with the aid of our meticulously crafted GK Perfect Magazines, you will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and confidence to excel in the CLAT and AILET exams.
