Careers360: What is your overall analysis of CLAT 2016?
Rajendra Khadav: CLAT 2016 was overall an easy to moderate one. This paper was very similar to the CLAT 2014 paper. Those who were updated with the current affairs and have followed and practiced last years’ question papers would have done well.
Careers360: Share section wise analysis of the paper.
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.
