Rajendra Khadav: There were five sections and the analysis is as follows –

English: The English section was very easy. The questions comprised general topics like fill in the blanks, Cloze passages, Idioms, Foreign words which had the legal references and reading comprehension. The reading comprehension consisted just one passage of 10 marks.

Logical Reasoning: CLAT 2016 had no critical reasoning questions. The analytical reasoning questions comprised Analogy, Odd Word Out, Syllogism, Statement Assumption, Logical consistency, Cause and Effect. This was an easy section.

Legal Reasoning: This portion was also easy. There were 15 Questions of Legal Awareness. The rest were on Legal Reasoning. The questions were easy as compared to previous years.


Maths: This was the toughest and trickiest section of CLAT 2016 paper. The questions were from various topics including Arithmetic, Percentage, Ratio & Proportion, Algebra, Geometry, Probability etc.


General Knowledge: This section had lots of current affairs questions and some of the static questions. The current affairs comprised past one year happenings. Interestingly there were questions on recently happened event like recent decision of Supreme Court on Uttarakhand emergency.  Those who have read the newspaper daily and were in habit of news channels would have performed very well in this section and would have bagged full marks.


Careers360: What according to you is the expected cutoff for CLAT 2016?
Rajendra Khadav: I expect that CLAT 2016 cutoff would reach 128+ for General category. The expected cutoff for the top 3 colleges would be from 145 to 148.

CLAT 2016 Results will be announced on May 23 as the official answer key will be released RGNUL Patiala on May 12.

There is no age limit for appearing in CLAT 2020 for UG program as well as in CLAT PG exam. So if you are able to fetch decent score, then you can get admission on the basis of that score. There is also no upper age limit for appearing in LSAT India Examination. But you can check the age limit specified by individual colleges wherein you want to seek admission.
