SET law Entrance exam - Tips on English preparation 

SET law Entrance exam

Dear Readers,

In this post, we have compiled the tips and strategy on English Section of SET LAW Entrance Exam. Generally, English Subject is considered as one of the toughest to score in the SET Exam. The English section of SET LAW Entrance Exam consists of questions worth 30 marks. There are three English sub-sections for which you have to prepare. The three sub-sections for which you have to prepare are as follows:
  • ·         Reading and comprehension
  • ·         Vocabulary
  • ·         English grammar
The first section you should prepare for is reading comprehension. You should read a lot of editorials from reputed English newspapers to practice for this section. I would suggest that you read newspapers such as "The Times of India" or "The Hindu".
Keep a track of time you take to read one long editorial paragraph and that should give you a rough idea of time you will take to read the comprehension.
Plus, read the previous year exam papers and try solving the questions. Do not take more than 20 minutes to solve the whole section of English. Out of these 20 minutes one should spend no more than 7 minutes for reading comprehension.
Keep a track of your strengths and weaknesses and improve upon your weaknesses and sharpen your strong areas.
I suggest you finish the easy questions first because that will help you save time and also give your confidence. The difficult questions should be left for in case there is time left in the end.
Coming to vocabulary what one should do is go through the book Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis and add as many words as one can to the vocabulary every day. Since this is a law entrance one should also add Latin maxims to the list of words already known. French and legal words should be added to this list as well.
You should take practice tests where you can polish your skills related to finding out the synonyms and antonyms for a given word.
Now comes grammar. Here one should have practice of correcting the incorrect sentences and finding out the group of words that would make a particular sentence sound correct.
Plus, one should know the one word substitution for a long sentence. This means one knows the meaning of long phrases. Basically, you should know definitions of different words so that you can correctly substitute a long sentence with a word or phrase.
Grammar books such as Wren and Martin should be kept handy and there you can go for topic wise study for improving your grammar. Look at the index first and identify topics about which you have no or little idea and then prepare accordingly.
Some websites have what we call word-lists and these contain word-meanings and antonyms and synonyms. These could turn out to be helpful in your preparation. These websites will also have reading passages given and you should practice the same to get a hang of how to attempt the reading comprehension on the actual day of the exam.
You should also go to websites which emphasize how important it is to know the correct spellings of big words.
Finally, no matter which means you use to improve your English but at the end you should be confident that you have learnt enough synonyms and antonyms, you are confident about how to complete a given sentence in a way that the sentence is grammatically correct, you should know the definitions of words so that you can use one word substitutions, you should be confident about the correct voice and tenses, and last of all one should know how to use correct prepositions and punctuations.
Overall I would like to say that one should read up all good material that comes one's way. This could be newspapers, journals, novels, poetry and then find out the meanings of words and phrases which are new to you.
