With new facets brought to all the aspirants this year, the entire schedule of the board examinations and entrance exams got shifted in order to finish the board exams well before the stipulated time. Another major change that has baffled the aspirants preparing for Law as a career is that almost all the major universities and colleges have announced the dates to conduct the entrance exam. And with hardly a window of 35 days left between the boards and the entrance exams, studying at the eleventh hour is never a fruitful exercise.

This brings us to a situation where a student should start preparing for these entrance exams right after class 10th or with the board class 12th as the time after the board exam is very limited. Students have understood the need for preparing themselves for these entrance exams, and also about the competitiveness among the students.

Striving to enter into the reputed colleges, aspirants usually take a lot of pressure of board exams in order to score good marks and get admissions to one of the best colleges. It does not fetch the students much benefit, but if they make it a regular routine to prepare for a paper which is a multiple-choice question-based exam with a disciplined outlook, they are sure to achieve their goals. It’s always good to have a path and vision from an early age.
