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.
