1. Less than six months are left for CLAT UG 2014, what should be the preparation strategy and focus area of the aspirants?
Most students at this point in time will be juggling their preparation for Board Exam as well as the CLAT, so it is important for them to balance the two, without neglecting either. The focus should be on studying all components of CLAT right now, as they will have only one month’s time after the Boards.
2. What are the key areas/important topics that a student should focus on in each subject area (English including comprehension, General Knowledge/Current Affairs, Mathematics, Legal Aptitude, Logical Reasoning)
For English, one should focus on grammar and vocabulary. For Math, one should work on all elementary chapters such as Time and Distance, Time & Work, Profit & Loss etc. For GK, both current affairs as well as static GK deserve attention. For logical reasoning, one should focus on critical reasoning and for Legal, focus should be on legal reasoning problems.

4. Is there any change expected in the exam pattern of CLAT UG 2014?
No new change has been so far announced by the CLAT authorities.
5. Which are the books that you highly recommend for the preparation of CLAT UG 2014?
The market is full of new books and students have to carefully choose. First and foremost, getting hold of the past year question papers is a must for students to get a hang of the type of questions asked in CLAT.
6. So far how has been difficulty level of the exam in the past few years? What is it expected to be like in CLAT 2014?
The difficulty level of CLAT has always ranged from simple to moderate and 2014 CLAT paper is going to be no different.
7. How would you advise students to prepare for subjects like Legal Aptitude which is not taught to UG students?
Legal Reasoning section of CLAT calls for no specific preparation, as students have to merely apply the given principle to the factual situation and choose the most appropriate option. It tests their ability to apply a given principle to a situation rather than a test of knowledge of the subject.
8. Which topics would you advise non-math students to prepare for and what should be their overall preparation strategy for mathematics?
The level of math questions in CLAT is confined to elementary math which every student studies between classes VII up to class X. So non- math students are not at any disadvantage. Sheer practice coupled with knowledge of short cuts will help them to crack this section.
9. What are the other major important undergraduate law exams that you would advise students to take up?
National Law University, Delhi’s AILET exam, Symbiosis Law School’s entrance ‘SET’ and LSAT are other popular entrance tests for students seeking to pursue UG in Law.
10. Majority of undergraduate students take engineering or medicine as their future career path. Law is less popular among students. We would like to know career prospects for those who wish to take up law after 12th.
Apart from thriving legal practice in areas such as Intellectual Property Rights, Taxation, Arbitration, Corporate Law etc., law graduates are in demand by top Legal firms, LPO’s, Banking and Public Sector Organizations. Media Houses, NGO’s, Government Departments, Judicial Services are other avenues open to law graduates.
