It always feels good to be back to normal. CLAT 2016 just did a “Ghar Wapsi” by toning down the level of difficulty and using standard pattern of questions. By giving clear instructions for ‘Principle-Fact’ based questions in Legal Reasoning section, CLAT authorities reduced the scope of ambiguity. On a lighter note, this would surely reduce the number of cases that are filed against authorities after exam. There was one visible formatting error in Mathematics section. In a quadratic equation, the superscript of power 2 was seen as normal 2. No other errors have been reported so far. Overall the test ended with a very positive note.

Section: Elementary Mathematics
No. Of questions: 20
As compared to last year, this year the section was more comprehensive in break-up of questions. Last year there were no questions on Number system while this year there was 4 questions. Two questions did surprise students, one on Stocks and one on Trigo. Question on clock was slightly time consuming. Otherwise most of the questions could have been solved in less than 1 minute per question. Overall the section can be classified as Moderate. Good score in this section could be 12+.
Section: English & Comprehension
No. Of questions: 40
This was probably the easiest section of all. Entire focus was on Grammar and vocabulary. Surprisingly there were 5 questions on identifying correct spelling. Most of the questions were easy and could have been attempted in 20 sections per question. Idioms and phrases had two legal maxims but both were simple enough. There was only 1 passage in comprehension carrying 10 marks and that too was easy. Overall time spent could not have been more than 30 minutes. Student, who has good command over vocabulary, would have attempted 37+ questions with 90% accuracy. Good score in this section could be 33+.
Section: Logical Reasoning
No. Of questions: 40
Compared to last year, Logical Reasoning section was such a relief this year. With standard break-up of questions like Statement & Assumption, Cause & Effect, Series, Blood Relation, Puzzles, Syllogism, Analogies and Misc logic based questions, the section could have attracted almost full attempts. Overall a well prepared student could have easily attempted 36+ questions with 90% accuracy. Good score in this section could be 30+.
Section: General Awareness and Current Affairs
No. Of questions: 50
G. K. Was again on expected lines. This section had most questions on current affairs. There were few ambiguous questions. This section would have given advantage to students preparing for the whole year. Overall, this section can be considered Moderate. Thus GK is going to be the differentiator. Good attempts in this section could be 38+ while good score could be 33+.
Section: Legal Aptitude
No. Of questions: 50
Legal aptitude section was a mixed bag of legal reasoning & legal knowledge questions. Legal aptitude had more of PRINCIPLE based questions(35) and the remaining 15 were knowledge based. Most of the principle based questions were from standard areas torts, contract, crime, constitution etc… Overall the section can be considered Easy. Student with average skills would have attempted 42+ questions in 35 minutes. Good score in this section could be 36+
Overall level: Easy-Moderate
Cut-offs: General aspirants may consider the score in the range of 122 to 126.
We wish all the students good luck for their result.
