Why to check law entrance exams other than CLAT?

This is the most important question one should consider while someone advises for appearing in law exams other than CLAT. Foremostly, appearing in more than one entrance exam also helps you in increasing your chances of getting an undergraduate law programme seat in various other good law schools including the other two NLUs located in Delhi and Shimla. 

Besides, you also get to have a hand-on experience of different law entrance exams before you actually appear for CLAT 2019, which again may help in boosting up the confidence. Another but obvious reason to appear for various other law exams but CLAT is the increasing competition amongst the CLAT takers is huge as compared to the other national or state-level or the university level law admission tests.

The prime objective of appearing in a law entrance exam is pursuing five-year integrated law programmes. What if it’s not through an NLU! The Tier 1 law schools are at par the National Law Universities and receive as many applications of the law aspirants as the individual NLUs. Therefore the candidates are advised to appear for the law exams other than CLAT.


Law entrance exams without Maths questions

Many of the law aspirants often fear questions related to Quantitative Aptitude and Mathematics. The sections are however an important section of majority of law entrance examinations including CLAT. The weightage of Mathematics (Numerical Ability/Quantitative Aptitude) section range between 5 percent and 15 percent in a majority of the law entrance tests thus making it a mandatory section to attempt, even if with a Maths-phobia. So is there any law entrance which doesn’t test the candidates on ability to solve Mathematics questions?

The good news is there is one undergraduate law entrance exam which doesn’t test the knowledge of Maths. The Law School Admission Test for Indian law schools commonly known as LSAT India is the only law admission test which evaluate a law aspirant on the basis of his/her reasoning and writing skills.
