Before we proceed to the expert analysis of Online CLAT 2015, let us have an overview of the paper pattern of CLAT 2015. The below pictogram will aid you in drawing a brief idea of the pattern of the most sought after law entrance –

Careers360: How was the overall paper of CLAT as it was held in online mode for the first time?

Harsh Gagrani: CLAT 2015 in online mode brought some un-expectations with it. With no technical glitches in the online mode, CLAT 2015 came out to be a slightly difficult paper than that of the last year.

Careers360: Some un-expectations? Elaborate the un-expected part a little more.
Harsh Gagrani: With un-expectations, I do not mean to say the paper was set out of the syllabus but the trend for what CLAT has been known was not followed this time. The questions were not of the same pattern as they used to be in the last few years.

Careers360: Share the section-wise analysis of Online CLAT 2015?
Harsh Gagrani: As we know CLAT 2015 was held in online mode this year, law aspirants had the freedom to move from one section to another. Among the five sections, English was the most difficult of all the five-sections with General Knowledge and Current Affairs to be the easiest one.

Let us have a section-wise analysis of CLAT 2015 Online Paper

MathematicsMathematics came out to be slightly tougher than the last year. Most of the question covered sections like Algebra and Number System. The questions were tricky but worth doable and scoring.

Logical ReasoningThe section was easy to moderate as it had 3 puzzles of which one was extremely tough. However, the rest were feasible. Questions of the analytical reasoning including Facts, Inference & Judgment, Coding-Decoding, Blood Relations and Syllogism were encountered. Moreover, the section could be said to be a balanced one among all the five-sections.

Legal AptitudeThis section was an un-expected though scoring if attempted carefully. The un-expected portion was that a lot of Legal Knowledge did not came in few past years but this time several of the questions were from the topic. In addition to this, some assertion-reason type questions too were found in the section, making it quite un-expected. However, those who have leant a handful of legal jargons from their reference books and practiced last 5 years papers could score better than those who have practiced say from last two-three years. Overall, the questions were straight forward.

EnglishWith Online CLAT 2015, the most unacceptable and un-expected section came out to be English. Most of the law aspirants found the section to be too lengthy and time consuming therefore the most difficult of all sections. It had two Reading Comprehensions, one short and another long one. There were no direct questions and the language too was very tough. Candidates had to read between the lines to fetch answers from the comprehensions.

General Knowledge and Current AffairsThe section was of great relief to CLAT 2015 aspirants. Most of the questions came from recent happenings (current affairs) of last one year. Static General Knowledge had a few questions say 4-5 only. One, who had updated the current affairs of past one year, could easily score good marks in the section. The section could be marked as the easiest of all.

Careers360: With so moderate to difficult paper, what cutoff you expect this time for Online CLAT 2015?
Harsh Gagrani: With Online CLAT 2015 being slightly tough for law aspirants, I expect the cutoff to dip a little. CLAT 2015 Cutoff is expected to be in between 138 and 140 as the paper was tough for most of the law aspirants.
