Before a detailed section-wise analysis, let us take a look at the overall exam pattern of CLAT 2016.
No technical glitch was reported by the test takers. The majority of the test takers shared they stand a good chance of cracking the test as the questions were of easy to moderate difficulty level. Shubhiksha, CLAT 2016 candidate shared, “The Legal Aptitude section was the easiest section. GK and English Comprehension were of easy to moderate level. Logical Reasoning and Mathematics were tough.”
Now let us take a look at section-wise analysis of the exam based on expert inputs.
English with Comprehension
This section had 1 Reading Comprehension passage and the rest of the questions were on English Usage. The topics of the questions were Grammar (Proposition, Verb, Adjective, Adverb), Fill in the blanks, Idioms & Phrases, and Spellings. Naman Dubey, who appeared for CLAT 2016 from one of the test-centres of Delhi-NCR says, "English was the easiest of all sections. I think that a Class 10th student could have easily answered the questions without any difficulty."
According to the experts, this was easy to moderate level. The questions were divided into 2 parts, Critical Reasoning, carrying 15 questions and Analytical Reasoning carrying 25 questions. The topics of the Analytical Reasoning section were Puzzles, Blood Relations, Arrangements set based questions etc.
As mentioned before, this was the toughest and trickiest section of the exam paper. As per Gagrani, the questions were more Logic based, which were doable. The questions were from various topics including Arithmetic, including Percentage, Ratio & Proportion, Algebra, Geometry, Probability amongst others. Rajendra Khadav of CrackCLAT Tutorials said, “Most of the questions were calculation intensive, hence the candidates needed to spend time on solving questions from this section. Ideally, test takers should have left the tricky questions to escape the negative marking scheme.” Rajneesh Singh, CLAT mentor believed that Mathematics will be the deciding factor. “Those who could not maintain accuracy would have lesser chances to crack the exam,” he said.
The majority of the questions were from Current Affairs and very few were on Static GK. The Current Affairs questions were from expected area such as National and International Politics, Social and Legal affairs among others. Surprisingly, a question on Current Affairs was asked about an event which took place just last week. It is definitely an exception since the questions are framed almost a week back. Naman Dubey, the CLAT 2016 test-taker says, "Some questions on current affairs were were based on events occurring just a week ago like which Court ordered floor test in Uttarakhand?"
This section had 35 Legal Reasoning questions and 15 questions on Legal Knowledge. This was one of the easiest sections as the questions were straight forward. Khadav said that there were questions on Constitution of India, which was one of the deciding factors.
Expected CLAT 2016 Cutoff
According to the experts, the top participating colleges’ cutoff would be above 140. Gagrani says, “The cutoff for the top 3 colleges would be from 140 to 145. On the other hand, Rajendra Khadav expected the cutoff scores to range from 145 to 148.
