Excerpts of Interview –

Careers360: As CLAT 2015 will be conducted online, how aspirants need to prepare for the new mode?
Harsh Gagrani:Once, Winston S. Churchillsaid, A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty’’.

Yes, I understand that change from a paper and pen based mode to online mode is scary! While this was in pipeline for a while now, the decision has been taken and CLAT will now be in an online mode forever.

CLAT aspirants should now start planning their strategy for the online exam.They should read news and magazine articles daily. Also, they should start taking as many as online mock tests and practice sets. This will prepare them efficiently for online reading without a pen and paper.

Careers360: What are the possible advantages of the online exams?
Harsh Gagrani:From a student’s perspective, there are two major advantages of CLAT being online. Firstly, the student can now change his answer comfortably. Every student has faced this problem with offline tests when he wishes to change his answer as the original one was marked in haste. This can be done without any hassles now.

Another advantage is time management. Now that answers are not to be marked on paper but clicked online, any student would get 5-6 minutes extra for solving the paper, owing to the time saved in filling up each of the OMR circle. Depending on how judiciously an aspirant uses this time, this can be a big boon for CLAT aspirants.

Careers360: What do you think,which mode is better-online or offline?
Harsh Gagrani: Each mode has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Offline mode putsevery aspirant on an even ground, and isn’t very different from how students have been attempting their regular papers, barring the marking of the OMR. Also, chances of unexpected goof-ups from the side of students/authorities/invigilators are comparatively low in an offline mode.

However, online mode also has its own share of advantages. As already discussed, online mode will help in managing time. Also, the fact that student can review his responses and make the required change wherever needed is a big advantage, which wasn’t available in the offline version.

Careers360: What tips you have for aspirants taking CLAT 2015?
Harsh Gagrani: In addition to the tips I’ve shared earlier, here are a few more –

  • Take a lot of online Mocks and Practice Tests.

  • In addition to giving you an extra practice, this will also show you whether or not you are facing problems like headache or Epiphora (excessive water coming out of eyes) on staring continuously at the computer screen. It is advised to consult a doctor immediately in case of such problems.

  • Follow the 20/20 rule. After staring at the screen continually for 20 minutes, stare at some distant object for 20 seconds. This way you can give rest to your eyes and will also help in increasing your concentration.

  • Do not leave offline practice totally. Other law entrance examinations are still offline. Also, a vast majority of practice material like reference books are easily available offline. Make sure you make full use of your offline material also.


Careers360: What is your message to CLAT 2015 aspirants?

Harsh Gagrani: As,Randy Paushsaid, “We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand,’’ so here are some tricks that you should remember and follow –

  • Switch some part of your preparations from offline to online mode

  • Make a habit of practicing Mock Tests and offline too

  • Ask doubts, however silly they may appear, regarding the platform from your mentors

  • Prepare a strategic schedule for the next 4months, incorporating online practice sets and stick to the schedule rigorously

  • Increase your study hours and ignore the distractions

All the Best!
