Candidates are advised to read the paragraph carefully and understand the broad theme mentioned.
Give close attention to the wordings of the questions
In the legal aptitude and logical aptitude section, principle fact based questions will not be asked separately. Rather, principles will be mentioned in the paragraph. Similarly, the facts will be mentioned either in paragraphs or will be given with the questions. Identify the facts and principles and try to simplify them by breaking down into simple parts.
Words like ‘OR’ and ‘AND’ impose some conditions and can change the meaning of a statement considerably. Hence, pay close attention to such words while answering a question. Also, give close attention to the small changes to the facts and principles.
The quantitative technique section will also be based on comprehension passage and candidates will have to read the paragraph and apply the analytical ability to solve the questions. There may be some graphical information based on which candidates will have to answer the questions.

Hope you find it helpful.
is it good to go out another city for clat preparation, because the place where I live has no facility but after I clear this exam , again I have to somewhere else for law. what to do? which city is best for clat preparation.
Well preparing for clat is also possible without coaching but it do require extra work as you will have to collect all the required materials such as notes and books by yourself, where in a coaching centre you are provided all the required materials.
However it isn't necessary to go to a different city to prepare untill and unless you are not ready. You have made a very good point here that for law college you will eventually have to go to a different city. Well if you are ready and comfortable than go for it. I will recommend you to go for delhi, as it has some of the best coaching centres and crowd is also good.
However if you are not ready to go to a different city you can also try online coaching programs. In offline coaching centres you get to interact with competitive crowd which pushes you up further to work hard however in online classes it isn't possible.
Anyways I hope you will make best decision for yourself. Hope you find it helpful.
If i have appear for CLAT after 12 but dont get success can i apper again in CLAT after BA.if yes is any difference in value of degree.Please reply.
Yes you can appear for CLAT even after completing your Graduation in BA. After completing BA programme you can apply for CLAT Entrance exam. CLAT is the national level exam for the admission to Five year integrated programme & Post Graduate law ( LLM) programme and if you have already completed your Graduation programme then you can also go for 3 Years law programme.
If you want to go for five years Integrated law programme then to apply for CLAT you should have minimum 45% in your 10+2
I am in class 11th and i have opted for humanities. i want to clear clat first and then compete the upsc exam , please tell me the right path
If you wish to give CLAT then you can take BA/LLB or BBA/LLB then after graduation you can appear for upsc . UPSC basic criteria includes graduation degree in any discipline from any recognized University. Candidate must be more than 21 years of age and the upper age limit is 32 years for general candidates. Therefore as per your interest you can do graduation in law and then give upsc after completing your graduation.
