As we have glanced through Online CLAT 2015 overall, let us have the expert take on the law entrance exam.
Careers360: How was the overall Online CLAT 2015?Rajneesh Singh: The law entrance paper was relatively tougher than the last year’s paper. The paper had some anomalies too.
Careers360: What anomalies had the Online CLAT 2015?Rajneesh Singh: The paper came out to be difficult primarily because of the non-familiar questions as compared to last years’ papers. One Logical Reasoning question had two similar choices. Moreover, some of the CLAT 2015 aspirants also faced technical problems, which resulted in loss of the valuable time. In addition to these, CLAT aspirants were asked to report to their respective centres two hours prior to the commencement of the exam which proved out to be of no use.
Careers360: What is your take on the five-section of CLAT 2015?Rajneesh Singh: CLAT 2015 Paper consisted of 200 multiple-choice objective type questions from the five-sections including English (including Comprehension), General Knowledge & Current Affairs, Elementary Mathematics (Numerical Ability), Legal Aptitude and Logical Reasoning. Below is the section-wise analysis of CLAT 2015 –
English (including Comprehension) – The section was above average and can be analyzed as one of the toughest sections. There were eight questions from Reading Comprehensions, which were very lengthy and thoughtful. The Grammar based questions covered topics like Para Jumbles, Sentence Correction, Analogies, Vocabulary, Best fit supplement word, Fill in the Blanks, etc.
General Knowledge & Current Affairs – The section was average and easy among all sections. Around 35-40 questions were from Current Affairs, rest was from Static GK. There were very few numbers of questions from Sports and more from Politics and Government. CLAT 2015 aspirants who had kept a good track of current affairs will be on the brighter side.
Elementary Mathematics (Numerical Ability) – The questions of this section were not of the same pattern, what it used to be in the last years, which scales this section on a tougher side. Five questions were from Data Interpretation. While there was not a single question from topics like Time, Distance and Speed, Percentage, Profit & Loss, most questions covered Numerical Ability topic. Few questions were also from Probability and Permutation and Combination.
Legal Aptitude – There were around 15 questions based on Principle and Facts. A large number of questions also came from Legal GK, Acts and Amendments and Head of Legal Institutions. The section came out to be an easy one.
Logical Reasoning – The section was quite tough and lengthy. Most number of questions was from various topics including Symbol based Logical Reasoning, Data Sufficiency, Venn Diagram, Puzzles, Conditionality, Series and Family Tree. Several questions were tricky and were highly no-familiar.
Careers360: What cutoff do you expect this year for CLAT?Rajneesh Singh: As Online CLAT 2015 was tough than the last year’s paper, I assume the following cutoff for CLAT –
Expected CLAT 2015 Cutoff
Top 3 NLUs
Top 6 NLUs
Top 9 NLUs
At least 1 NLU

Every other person has a different brain which works in different frequencies.
What I can study in 10 hours, maybe you can study in 2.
So this is really irrelevant.
But still to answer your question, according to some statistics, a good amount of 4–5 hours a day can help you get into a tier 1 college, but those hours should be with complete dedication and for 5-6 months.
It depends upon the Reservation Category and all. Considering General, you must need a rank of 120-140 for the admission. These were the last year cutoffs.

CLAT is for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes. For CLAT PG, you should possess a Bachelor's degree in Law. But because your highest qualification is BA and that is not a law degree, you are not eligible for CLAT PG. But now talking about CLAT UG, you need to have completed your 10+2 with a minimum aggregate of 45%. It is 45% for General Category and 40% for Reserved Categories. As there is no upper age limit for CLAT, you can appear for CLAT UG. Not based on your BA qualification but based on your 12th qualification. For more information, please visit our page at:
