Before we move to the exam analysis, let us take a quick look of the Online CLAT 2015 Paper Pattern to understand the sections and number of questions in each of them -

Section-wise students' reactions - 


English including comprehension- This was the most difficult section. It included sections like blanks, Cloze passages, Idioms and so on. “For me English was the toughest among all the sections. No direct questions were there from Reading Comprehensions”, said Sana.

“I was not too scared of the English section. But when I went through the section, i found it to be tricky as the language and vocabulary too was tough,” said Rohit.


General Knowledge/Current Affairs- This section was easiest of all. Majority of the questions were from current affairs while there were only a handful of static questions. “I did not face much difficulty in this section. I was told to keep updated with the recent happening through newspapers and channels. That paid off,” said Ravi Aggarwal.

Another candidate, Imran, who appeared for CLAT for the second time, said, “The questions were not tough for those who had brushed up their current affairs. Well, I did get stuck in a few questions but overall it was not tough.”


Mathematics (Numerical Ability)- Mathematics included questions from topics like Number Systems, Algebra, Average etc. There was a mixed reaction among students for Mathematics. While some found it to be easy others felt the numerical ability questions were a ‘bit tricky’. Says Raj, for whom this was a second attempt, “For me, some of the questions were a bit tricky and I had to give more time to such questions. I ended up losing some time for solving the other sections.”


However, Sana found Mathematics to be easy. “I am pretty happy with the way my mathematics paper went. Yes, some of them took time but if you actually analysed the question properly it became very easy.”


Another candidate, Nandini echoed Sana point. “Some of the questions took time. But overall the section was easy. It could be easily attempted.”


Legal aptitude- This section was unexpected as a lot of legal knowledge and assertion-reason questions were there this time. The pattern didi not appear in a last few years from CLAT paper trend. “I was told it is necessary to have knowledge of some legal terms for this section. That helped as there were too many questions along those lines. I was able to breeze through it,” said Rohit.

“It was alright. Not too tough, neither too easy but was unexpected as the pattern was not followed from the recent years,” Vidyut added.


Logical reasoningThere was a total of 3 puzzles of which one cam eout to be difficulat in general. But the questions could be attempted. Most of the questions were from topics like Blood Relations, Analogies and Syllogisms. “I attempted most of the questions. There were some which required critical reasoning,” said Nandini.

RMLNLU will be declaring CLAT 2015 Results on May 20, 2015.

hello iam preparing for clat 2020 I have a doubt that someone is said to me that national law institute university (NLIU) has not offering state obc domicile reservations this year if someone has know this please tell

Sanjanaleekha 18th Feb, 2020

Hi there,

NLUI, Bhopal takes admission to its 5 year BA.LLB course on the basis of CLAT scores and it has its own seat matrix and seats reserved for students having domicile of Madhya Pradesh i.e. state domicile students.

To answer your question, as per the latest admission brochure which is uploaded by the university, it is offering a total of 07 seats out of a total of 122 seats in its BA.LLB course to MP State OBC students so it is not true that the university is not offering reservation to state domicile OBC students.

You can access the detailed brochure on the provided link for your reference,


what is the procedure of getting admission after clat ranking

Sanjanaleekha 18th Feb, 2020

Hi there,

After you get your CLAT scores, you will be given an All India Rank based on that scores, after you get the rank you will need to take p-art in counselling round where all the participating National Law Universities will declare their individual cut off list and based on this cut off list you will be allotted a college after this you will have to either lock in the college you have been allotted or continue to take part in the counselling process. If you decide to lock in the seat then you will have to pay the required admission fees to that particular NLU and get your required documents physically verified.
