Careers360 brings you the CLAT 2014 analysis by Harsh Gagrani, Director, LegalEdge Tutorials.

 

Below is the excerpt of the interview –

 

Careers360What is your overall analysis of CLAT 2014?
Harsh Gagrani: According to me, the CLAT 2014 was overall easy than CLAT 2013. Most of the sections were predictable. Those who have practiced from the last year question papers and were updated with the current happenings would have done remarkably well.

 

I would like to share section wise analysis of the paper -

 

English: The English paper was quite easy. Candidates can expect a good score in this section. The questions comprised most of the fill in the blanks which came directly from Wren & Martin. There was one Reading Comprehension, foreign phrases and idioms.

 

Logical Reasoning: This year no critical reasoning questions came. The questions came only from analytical reasoning. There were two puzzles, of which one puzzle was difficult and other quite easy. Some other questions came from Blood Relations, Analogies and around seven to eight questions were from syllogisms. This section could be said a moderate one. The analytical reasoning questions have come directly from R.S. Aggarwal.

 

Legal Reasoning: This portion was also easy. There were only reasoning type questions and no legal knowledge questions. All the 50 questions were of Legal Reasoning type. The questions were easy. The questions were shorter than that of CLAT 2013.

 

General Knowledge: This portion was a mix bag of static and current general knowledge. The current affairs portion was easy. The questions were straight forward and were from past one year. The static general knowledge comprised questions from history and were easy.

 

Maths: It was also an easy one. There were around 18-19 questions from topics like Average, Number Systems. The questions were attemptable.

 

Careers360: Where there any anomalies in the paper?
Harsh Gagrani: Not many. The 50 questions from legal reasoning were some time taking and aspirants would have taken much time to attempt these.

 

Careers360: What according to you is the expected cutoff for CLAT 2014?
Harsh Gagrani: I expect that CLAT 2014 cutoff for the General category could go 145+ for Top two NLU’s.

 

In 2013, a total of 30915 registrations took place. The total number of seats for B.A., LL.B (Hons.) Degree Programme is 1660 distributed among the 14 participating NLUs.

 

You can check the answer key of the CLAT 2014, once it is available. The result for CLAT 2014 has been announced on May 31, 2014. Those who will qualify the law entrance exam and meet the CLAT 2014 cutoff can expect to be admitted to one among the participating National Law Universities.

do clat nlu merits will be based on my board marks or only clat marks

ayush mishra 19th Jan, 2020

Hey Ayushman!

In order for you to appear for the Common Law Admission Test, you would have to clear the eligibility criteria of the exam. One of the points in the eligibility criteria states that a candidate should have passed in 10+2 or an equivalent exam from a recognized board and general category students should have secured 45% in the qualifying exam while for SC and ST candidates, 40% in qualifying exam is necessary.

As long as you clear this and also the other eligibility criteria, it isn't any problem. Clat NLU results or merits are decided only on the basis of your CLAT Scores and your board marks would not have a say in it. However, it is advised to not take boards lightly as poor academic records would surely affect you in the longer run.
