Before starting your preparation for the TS LAWCET 2021 exam, you must make sure that you secured all of the relevant material that would be useful for you.

Evaluate and assess yourself

If you are not regularly assessing yourself, you will never know your strengths, weaknesses, and where you stand. Hence, you need to attempt previous year's question papers and mock tests which are easily available on the internet and in the market. By taking these tests, you will be able to evaluate and assess yourself, and then finally try to improve accordingly.
