CLAT exam is the most desirable exam that inspire to law exam. It is a centralized test for admission in top 21 National Law Universities in India. The exam is based on online mode. Those who want to start their preparation in CLAT exam join Top law coaching institute in Kolkata.
The English section has contained passages. It is one of the most scoring subjects to score. Therefore, follow the article of newspaper, sociology, fiction, and history. You can find the best set of RC’s question from the Law coaching institute in Kolkata. A new entrant in the paper is passage-based grammar. You must’ve seen it in our CP mocks; 24 onward. This added with vocabulary – based questions give the candidates some relief from only reading. Basic questions on ARTICLES, DETERMINERS, PREPOSITIONS, and TENSES have been asked. We can also expect some summary questions or other paragraph-based questions. What does not change is the philosophy behind the paper. Which is not rote learning type questions will be asked?
Overall, the English section was easy. A good score here will be around 25–28 marks.
METHOD OF STUDY
One should continue practicing reading and comprehension. Purple books should suffice. Old mocks and past year papers.
You can add grammar practice from the practice books. Will help in that one question set.
The passages have been taken from several opinion articles on contemporary issues. They are based either on Constitutional Law or on some general principles of law which cannot be restricted to any straitjacket field. The length of the passages is quite short. Some as small as 153 words while the largest one does not seem to be more than 400 words. The questions are playing around one or two principles of the passage. So, it is possible that
while a student may answer all the questions under a passage correctly, it is also possible that she may simply get all of them wrong by missing that one principle which was focused on all the questions. This makes these questions almost a zero-sum game.
Change in the study pattern:
There isn’t any drastic change required. The hitherto approach of focusing on the ongoing issues of legal importance and good conceptual understanding of a few basics of Constitutional Law should suffice However, given the size of the questions, it is important that students focus on concentrating on all principles given in the passage and answering questions accurately. As time is not a big challenge, it is likely that most candidates will attempt their entire paper. Hence, it is now a test of accuracy.
Scoring a 40/40 is not a difficult task. I have a couple of students in CP who have already done this in this paper. But, to be sure of a Top 100 rank, a score of 36–38 is a must, unless appropriately compensated by another section. The paper has no errors and the rationale given for each answer is quite good. It appears to have been made with a lot of effort and forethought.
CR was the same fare as the previous sample paper. A well-covered range of all question types from evidence family (weaken and assumption questions), inference and conclusion, and structure questions (role played by sentences, one on parallel reasoning). Practice the best question of reasoning from our Law coaching classes Kolkata “Edufoster Institute”. A new entrant in this paper was deductive logic. And from this paper, we can conclude that the
question, when it says to use both statements, means it. So SINGLE STATEMENT ANSWERS IN THIS CASE ARE OUT.
A good score will be 19–21 marks
WHAT TO STUDY
Here nothing changes. CR, Single statement questions, and DEDUCTIVE and Conditionals.
In paper 1 arrangements were asked, while in paper 2 they asked Blood relation, number, and letter series but the number of ques is only 6 and 4 respectively.
So, one thing is sure no questions must not be more than 8. But they can ask all variety of questions which we teach in the classroom. All questions are doable though.
Paper 1 more calculative + they have asked a caselet based on TSD concept while in paper 2 they have asked reasoning-based DI along with calculation based. Paper 2 is more analytical than paper 1. So the student must cover a variety of questions based on Calculation based DI as well as Reasoning based
DI. But both papers are easy to moderate level. A student must also cover all conceptual topics like TSD, basic algebra (only linear equations),
percentages, averages, Ratio, Work–Time, etc and even probability because on any topic they can ask caselet type questions as we have asked in mocks.
If we give 15 mins time for this section, 10–12 is a good attempt.
GK section of the latest sample paper, released by CLAT CONSORTIUM, was quite good. There was only one passage, based on ART AND CULTURE, that troubled all the students. Except that all other passages were average. The average score could have been 26 to 28 in this section and 30+ could
have been a good score. The questions are intended to test the depth of understanding of different events. Edufoster Institute is providing the Law coaching classes in India in the various zone. We provide the updated GA/GK section on a daily basis. There is also one topic mentioned in the UG CLAT SYLLABUS i.e. HISTORICAL EVENTS OF CONTINUING SIGNIFICANCE, that has not been asked in any of the two sample papers. While the focus of the passage will be on recent events, questions may test you on HISTORICAL INFORMATION related to such events. After a complete analysis of the paper, I think the score above 120-125 will be required to get into the top 3 NLU’s, 115+ could get you to top 10 NLU’s and 100+ will get you a call from CLAT universities. Reading, practicing, and testing yourself through various mocks will help you all to crack the CLAT exam.
