CLAT 2017 takers found the test to be of easy to moderate level of difficulty. English was the easiest section according to the candidates whereas Reasoning and Legal Aptitude were on the tougher side. Mathematics was one of the moderate areas for most of the test takers with many topics coming from Class 10 level. GK came as a shocker to many of the test takers owing to the heavy weightage of current affairs questions as compared to static GK.


Take a look at the student reactions of CLAT 2017 below.


Arunima Bisht – The exam was of moderate difficulty level. English, Maths and GK were easy, whereas Reasoning and Legal Aptitude sections were tough for me.


Shanvi Aggarwal – Legal Aptitude section was the toughest in the exam. English was easy and had topics like cloze test, jumble words, Antonyms-Synonyms, Maths was of moderate difficulty level with questions from algebra, integers, percentage, profit and loss. Reasoning questions were very easy.


Stuti – Reasoning had good set of questions. English was the easiest section. Maths was also quite easy with maximum questions from Class 10th level.


Farha – I found English to be the easiest section and Legal Aptitude was toughest. English had only one passage and fill in the blanks, similar sentence, missing words type questions. Majority of the questions from Legal Awareness section were from Legal Maxims. Rest of the questions were on principle n statement types. Reasoning had more of analytical questions.


Asmitha – The paper was very easy for me especially the Maths section. Most of the questions were from Class 10 level such as Percentage, Age, Ratio Proportion questions, Percentage and Profit and Loss etc.


Gurmeet – GK section consisted of mostly current affairs questions. English was easiest, Legal Aptitude was somewhat moderate to tough. Reasoning questions were doable with less number of logical reasoning questions.


Pragya – I am confident with my performance. This is my second CLAT attempt. I had emphasised specially on GK and Legal Aptitude sections. Hope I am successful this time.


Himanshu – This is my first attempt. I am worried about the Legal Aptitude section. But I am quite confident with my performance in Maths and English.


Tanushree – I am very happy with the SC ruling removing the age bar in CLAT. My performance was as per my expectation and I hope to get admission in one of the 18 NLUs.


CLAT 2017 was conducted from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in online mode. There were 200 objective type multiple choice questions each carrying one mark. There was negative marking of 0.25 marks.
