Careers360: What is your overall analysis of CLAT 2014?
Ishita: The examination went smooth for most of the students this time. It was declared as the easiest CLAT exam so far by many aspirants. Overall the paper was between easy to moderate. Most of the students were happy and satisfied by their performance.
Careers360: Can you give us a section wise analysis of the paper?
Ishita: Paper was obvious without any great surprises. There was nothing unexpected except in the General Knowledge section, which had equal shares of static G.K and current affairs questions unlike previous years where the section was dominated by current affairs. This section was similar to the AILET pattern and many students would not have been prepared as it slightly increased the difficulty level. Questions like “MalalaYousafzai is a national of which country? Who was awarded the DadasahebPhalke award this year?” were asked from current news whereas “Who was the first Jnanpith awardee? Which planet has maximum number of natural satellites? Were asked in the static G.K section although none of them were difficult or unpredictable. In total, this section can be called moderate but for serious students it was a child’s play. An ideal score would be around 38 in this section.
English section was simple and easy for many students. One reading comprehension based on higher education was asked which was followed by ten sub-questions. Para-jumbles were little tricky but students should have been easily glided through rest of the paper which consisted of grammar and vocabulary. Thus was another easy section with an average score upto 33.
Logical reasoning was simple unlike other law entrance examinations this year. Most of the questions could be answered easily in less time except certain arrangements and one blood relation question. This question took on to the nerves of most of the students as no one could solve it even after reading it several times. It can be concluded that the question was wrong and students might get the benefit of doubt here. A moderate section with a score possibility between 30-35.
Legal Reasoning was easier than expected. It consisted of all reasoning questions and no legal knowledge question was asked unlike CLAT 2012 where a heavy percentage of legal knowledge questions were seen. Questions asked on contracts were lengthy and took time. Principles stated were longer than the questions asked and took time to be understood by the students. Overall this section was a little lengthy but not so complicated. Average score here should be up to 43.
Mathematics section was easy as described by most candidates. Basic elementary mathematics were asked. Questions related to age, ratio, volume, percentage, simple interest and compound interest were asked which most students could solve effortlessly. A not-so-tricky section. Average score here would go upto 15.
Careers360: What is the expected cut for CLAT 2014?
Ishita: Since, it was an easy paper for most of the candidates, Cutoff might be high. My prediction rests between 128-133 this time.

NAAC committee which provides grades to Indian Universities as per their performance has awarded Grade ‘C’ to UPES because of its worst academic performance and this is the lowest grade awarded to any Indian university. Even a faculty of law from this caught was caught taking bribe from students for increasing their attendance is his course. But overall the faculty is fairly good. The campus is neat and clean and well maintained.
For BA LLB, BBA LLB or B com LLB , the course fees for 5 years is 16.48 lakhs.The actual fees is much more than the official tuition fees. There will also be added expenses like industrial tour, summer classes, reevaluation, direct study, corticated issue, library and other activities. Considering, the overall expenses and fees structure, this college is not at all value for money.
However, this college is at a very good location.The location of UPES is just behind Mussoorie hills. There also trekking route from UPES back gate to mussoorie with a fishing point (river) in between.
UPES Admission is based on the national level CBT entrance examination by UPES or via national level entrance exams like JEE Main, CLAT, CAT. Direct admission is also available via the board exam merit.
I hope this helps you!
First I would suggest you to join a good coaching for CLAT preferably, to ensure that you understand the concepts of legal reasoning properly, and you have a good teacher or a senior in law school, who can help you clear your doubts in reasoning. Give at least 25–30 mock tests, and analyze them properly, recognizing your weak points. For current affairs you can refer to gktoday.in, read and re read the current affairs again and again. Maths and logical reasoning is all about practice, the more you practice the more you improve. The same goes with English, for improving your word power you can refer to word power made easy by Norman Lewis. But as you only have two months you need a rigorous practice, try to devote 7–8 hours to self study for CLAT preparation. If you are talking about studying for both CLAT and AILET simultaneously, then its difficult. But try to solve papers and have a clear understanding about the concepts.
Hope this helps! All the best.
The CLAT exam syllabus has changed this year and shift to more aptitude side then remembering things.The no.of questions reduced from 200 to 120/125 but the time duration will be the same that is 2 hours.
Here are few tips for preparation you must follow to get a good score without coaching:-English: Vocabulary questions will be asked. Word Power Made Easy is the book you can use to improve your vocabulary.
High School Grammar and Composition ( by Wren and Martin)It is a book to improve the grammar skills.
GK: Question on current affairs will be asked. Read newspaper for CURRENT G.K. than trying to grasp all info at once. Some of the newspaper sources which you can use to prepare this section are The Hindu, Financial Express, and The Economist. You can also use some other apps like Inshorts etc for current affairs.Mathematics: Only Data based questions will be asked. Like you have some information and questions on basis of that information.Logical Reasoning: Data tables, Data Charts, Bar Diagrams, Pie Charts, Graphs, Data Comparison and Analysis.
