How to Clear the Patent Agent Exam (with few days of preparation)

Last week in our webinar (@54:40), we were asked, what then looked like an impossible question to answer: How to study for last 20 days? The questioner, we suspect, wanted to know what an aspirant should do to maximize the chances of clearing patent agent exam in days that are left. Given the comprehensive and systematic manner in which we have prepared our video lectures, reading materials, quizzes, revisions tests and mock exams, it was difficult for us to give an answer in the webinar as to how to fast track your preparation. But that question did set us thinking. If you just have few days left for the exam what should be the most beneficial strategy, what should be the one thing that you should focus on to maximize your results.

And we have the answer. Focus on the Revisions Tests and Mock Exams. Our advice will be to do the Exam Practice Course as many times as possible. Just follow the following 4 steps:

  1. Enroll for the Exam Practice Course.
  2. Take the 25 Revision Tests and the 5 Mock Exams. On completion of each test or exam, check the answers, refer to the bare act and revise the provision.
  3. Watch the relevant videos in Paper 1 and Paper 2, to clear your doubts or to get the concept right.
  4. Repeat steps 2 to 4 over and over, till you clear all the tests and exams with over 75% marks.

That, in our opinion, should provide you with the best results in the shortest possible time.

Firstly it changed the approach of looking at the subject. At the first instance bare act seemed dry. The lecture series actually explained 'why' of the topic and statutes. Which helped in understanding the way the things are .
