While CLAT’17 came as a smooth ride for most of the aspirants, aspirants indeed faced some major bumps during the ride. We think that this year’s CLAT was slightly difficult than last year’s CLAT however it was easier than CLAT 2015 (that nightmare!). Most of the aspirants found this paper rather lengthy especially the Maths section unlike last year’s CLAT. CNLU decided to surprise all of us with the most unpredictable GK Section. While the English and Logical Reasoning sections were easy to solve, the Legal Reasoning section came out to be the easiest of all. We have prepared three categories of sectional scores which will give a better analysis of your standing in the ever-growing merit list. Continue reading “CLAT’17: The Expert Analysis”
AILET aspirants across the nation felt the same about yesterday’s paper. “It was too lengthy.” said one AILET aspirant coming out of her AILET centre, here at NLSIU, Bangalore. Overall, the paper was of a moderate-difficult difficulty level according to our analysis, with the logical reasoning section playing a major role in enhancing its difficulty level. An overall cutoff of 93-97 is expected to get aspirants into the NLU standing tall in the nation’s capital. Let us analyse the paper in detail now. Continue reading “AILET’17: The Expert Analysis”
So I was asked by these wacky friends of mine to write something to inspire young kids to take up CLAT sans all the scary nightmares. So here it goes my pals. Somewhere in this write up I have hidden the magic recipe to crack CLAT. Firstly let’s start with how to tackle the highly unpredictable, hell of an exam called CLAT. The answer is a quote from somewhere in the internet. “Do not just practice until you get it right, practice until you cannot get it wrong.” Yes, be prepared! Remember that the exam is an experience of bureaucratic slack, and do not stick only to mocks of one coaching centre. Read books from varied sources. Be ready for anything they are scheming to throw at you.
CLAT is an easy exam and to crack it all you need is a plan. If you fail to plan you plan to fail. Complete the basics and start to practice. Beginning with GK I would kill the person who sits with some random UPSC book. Come on folks, it’s CLAT! All you need to do is get a decent static GK book, finish it and you are done. For current affairs get a few good current affairs magazines, read (good) newspapers and subscribe to a good weekly magazine! Same goes for maths. Its CLAT, not CAT. I would hence suggest you to first get the exam right. Finish the basic topics in maths and practice until you lose the phobia of it and here you have 20 marks in your pocket. For English you need not be a son of a British. All you need to do is first get your grammar right-not for CLAT but for life. Same goes for vocabulary. Intimidate your friends by using sassy words in your life. Logic, whoa! If you claim to be bad at it you are insulting yourself. Okay, the only way to improve your reasoning is practice (huh! cliché again?). I know people who practice the same stuff all the time. Logical Reasoning in CLAT is not comprised of only syllogism and coding decoding. Practice a range of different problems. Remember that logic in CLAT has verbal and nonverbal components and practice for both. Practice some past LSAT papers and your verbal reasoning is done. And finally LEGAL! You have five years of law ahead, do not over dose. Go slow, memorize some rules (principles) and practice, practice and practice.
PS: Do not panic. We all have been through it. In the end, it is this that makes NLS worth being in.
All the Best.

“Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make, if you make even the tiniest mistake you can find yourself in terrible trouble.”
This quote is in itself true to a large extent, but, when it comes to the critical reasoning section of the CLAT and other law entrance examinations, you should consider it to be the Gospel truth. You are most likely to find Assumption Questions in the form of a short paragraph followed by four assumptions, with you having to choose the assumption which is essential to make in order to reach the conclusion arrived at in the passage. They appear occasionally in the CLAT and are a regular in the AILET.

I’m sure most of you must have heard Wonderwall by Oasis. Yes, it’s a popular song, but what does it have to do with CLAT? ‘Wonderwall’ means “the person you constantly find yourself thinking about”. And I’m going to tell you why CLAT should be your wonderwall.
