So, if you have prepared well for this exam, then it should be a cakewalk for you!

    Coming to the overall 5 sections under CLAT-2016, The Numerical Ability section or Mathematics had the lowest weightage overall, questions were lengthy, time consuming and tricky which can consume much time. But the experts from this fields are claiming that CLAT-2016 was one of the most easy to crack paper. Therefore cutoff for this may touch all time high.

    Here is the Subject wise Analysis of CLAT-2016.

    Legal Aptitude: The questions were relatively easy compared to last year question.  Out of the 50 questions, 15 were from Legal GK, and 35 were Principle- Facts questions. All the questions from legal reasoning only had a single principle and were easy to answer. The questions were a mix from contracts, torts and criminal law. Even the options were pretty simple to pick so as to not confuse the students. Questions from Constitutional Amendments, and  Niti Aayog have been asked.

    Logical Reasoning: This section too was moderate; some of the question were lengthy also. The questions were based on Statement Assumption, Cause and Effect, Analogy, Odd Word Out, Syllogism, Logical consistency. There was one question on visual reasoning as well wherein there were a set of four squares with a pattern, we had to guess the fifth, though the official syllabus has specifically excluded that. Those who practiced from the past papers, would have find this section easy. An attempt of 30- 35 questions and an overall score of around 30 would be good.

    English: This section had 1 Reading Comprehension passage and the rest of the questions were on English Usage. The topics of the questions were Grammar (Proposition, Verb, Adjective, Adverb), Fill in the blanks, Idioms & Phrases, and Spellings. Some of the questions also asked from English meaning word, which were very easy. An attempt of 35-38 would be considered safe.

    GK: The difficulty level was easy to moderate. 90% questions mostly followed the mainstream current affairs news only. Those students, who did follow the newspapers would have performed very well in this section and would be fairly comfortable while solving this section. Most of the questions were easy and direct.
