Interview Excerpts –
Careers360: How aspirants need to prepare for online CLAT 2015?Nitesh Gupta: As CLAT has gone online candidates have developed a psychological fear. After the paper-pen based tests of what they are accustomed to, how’ll they attempt a computer-based test? I would suggest that they need not fear as the online test is all about using a mouse and a click which most of us are used to in the times of modern age of information processing.
To get success in this new format of tests, aspirants need to practice a lot of online mock tests so that they get accustomed to the test pattern and develop accuracy and speed at the same time when it comes to clicking a mouse. It’ll definitely help them in overcoming the anxiety on the exam day.
Careers360: What would be the possible advantages of online CLAT?Nitesh Gupta: CLAT 2015 is scheduled for the online mode and aspirants would have various advantages including reviewing question paper on attempts, easier switching between the questions, changing the answer multiple times, and alerts like time left, finalizing the answer card and avoiding glitches like mismatch of OMR answer card and roll number as previous year’s CLAT problem.
Careers360: What would you suggest for preparing Legal Aptitude section, which is a new section for law examination aspirants?Nitesh Gupta: The Legal Aptitude section in CLAT majorly focuses on four areas, from where the questions are framed –
The Indian Constitution
Law and Judicial system
Law of Torts
Law of Contract
Law of Crime
The questions asked on these topics can be direct questions; Principle-Facts based questions, Case based questions.
For students, this is a new section and a very challenging one. The preparation needs to be focused and knowledge of these sections though not in depth but a strong overview is needed.
Moreover, an aspirant would need to practice a lot from the books available in the market and ensure that the books are specifically for Class XII CLAT.
Careers360: Which books would you recommend for the various sections of CLAT?Nitesh Gupta: CLAT as always is the toughest entrance examination when it comes to Law Entrances after 10+2.
English – Newspapers like The Hindu, Indian Express etc. and the editorial is a must read. They also need to refer to Wren and Martin for brushing up grammar skills.
Mathematics – One can practice from competitive exams books authored by R.S.Agarwal.
General Knowledge and Current Affairs – One should read newspapers on a daily basis apart from updating oneself from books including G.K.Today, Manorama Year Book and India 2015.
Logical Reasoning – Aspirants may find it similar to what they had dealt with in PSA Exams in Class 9th and 11th standard, but difficulty level would be higher. One can practice from competitive exams books authored by R.S.Agarwal.
Besides, all these they would need to practice as much as possible from the previous year question papers and take online mock tests to brush up their skills.
Careers360: What advise would you give to the CLAT aspirants who are appearing for CLAT 2015 Online?Nitesh Gupta: My suggestions for CLAT 2015 aspirants are –
