ANURAG TIWARI

AIR-3, CLAT 2019

Quoting the words of a famous academic author, Douglas H. Everett “There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality, and then there are those who turn one into the other”. A boy from the City of Lakes, Bhopal, proved this statement right by bagging an All India Rank 3 in CLAT 2019. CLAT is considered to be one of the toughest examinations. Nothing is ever impossible if you are determined to do it and Anurag has definitely set an example in front of other CLAT aspirants. In an exclusive interview with Collegedunia, Anurag shared his preparation tips for CLAT aspirants and his plans for the future.

From which Coaching Centre did you prepare for CLAT?

I took coaching from LegalEdge, Bhopal. I think LegalEdge has everything that a CLAT aspirant would want, great notes, qualified faculty members and interactive classroom programmes.

What was your preparation strategy?

From the beginning, I knew that my English is weak and therefore I worked hard to improve it. I read about 14-15 novels in the whole year. Apart from it, I read editorials on a daily basis. I also used 'word power made easy' for vocab and objective English book by SP Bakshi for grammar.

For GK I used sites like Gk Today affairs cloud and study IQ, apart from my coaching compendiums. My coaching compendiums were sufficient enough to prepare for static GK, legal and logical reasoning.

For Maths, I just practiced from RS Aggarwal.

For Critical Reasoning, I referred to RS Aggarwal and MK Pandey book.

What are your top three college preferences? My preference list is

What are your future plans?

Right now am in the middle of a tough situation. I have yet to decide whether I should opt for litigation or give UPSC exam.

Why Law?

Law as a career suits my personality and furthermore, it helps us to serve our society. Studying law offers an opportunity to develop a range of skills and explore many aspects of human life. It develops one's understanding of the levels of power in our society in a way that is even more effective than political science. This is because the law is directly concerned with power and reaches into every part of life.

Any tips for future Law aspirants?

Be very much content specific. Don't waste your precious time preparing for unnecessary things. Work on your weaker section, because only your weaknesses are keeping you apart from your dream college. My key to dealing with stress is simple: just stay cool and stay focused. So, be hard working and be patient; even in times of distress. Just have faith in God and believe in yourself. Always remember your focus determines your reality. Focus and ultimately you’ll succeed.

What was your preparation strategy?

I tried to study at least three subjects each day.

For maths, it is very important to clear your basics. In the last 2 months, I used to do 20 questions from different topics within 20 minutes.

On every alternate day, I tried to do 5-6 puzzles and 20 questions on miscellaneous topics.

For legal knowledge, I referred to RSMs and classroom notes and for legal reasoning questions; I also practiced via past year papers and RSMs.

What are your future plans?

As of now, I haven’t given a thought on my future. I haven’t yet decided about which field I want to pursue.

Why law?

When I was little, I never thought of taking Law as a career. In 11th standard, my father suggested me to take law as a career and when I myself researched about it, I found it very fascinating and interesting.l think Law has a good scope. I believe that it is a very good way to learn about the legal system that runs our nation. And so I decided to opt for Law as my career.

Any tips for future Law aspirants?

For the budding lawyers, I want to say that stay focused and be content specific. Try to revise things as many times possible. Have faith in yourself and you’ll be able to achieve a good rank. Mark these words by Jim Watkins “ A river cuts through a rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence.”
