This section will test candidate's interest towards study of law, research aptitude and problem solving ability. Questions will be framed with the help of legal propositions (described in the paper), and a set of facts to which the said proposition has to be applied. Some propositions may not be "true" in the real sense (e.g. the legal proposition may be that any person who speaks in a movie hall and disturbs others that are watching the movie will be banned from entering any movie theatre across India for one year).

Q11.How should I prepare for CLAT?

ANS. The preparation of CLAT is very exhaustive. Over the years due to the increase in the number of students opting for the exam, the level of competition has increased considerably. Due to the factors of competition and open syllabus, most students prefer to prepare under proper guidance. There are various preparation courses spanning from 2 years’ preparation to 1 year and even 1.5 months. As much as possible if a student is serious for Law as a career and desirous of joining a Top Law university it is better to do in depth preparation. Long term preparation programs are better as they help to pace oneself to do in depth preparation. Having said that it is not that the intensive course does not have students securing top ranks, it's just that the academic pressure is considerably more.

One of the main aspects that would help you to prepare for the exam is to develop a habit of maintaining notes related to current affairs. The Static General Knowledge requires relevant material in History, Geography, Economics and General Sciences, and a proper understanding of basic legal concepts and legal reasoning along with basic and advanced concepts of Analytical and critical reasoning. Quantitative aptitudes consisting of Class X level concepts are required. All the mentioned sections should be practiced keeping in mind the time constraints. The CLAT exam does not have any structured syllabi to adhere to making it all though more challenging!
