Errors Crept in CLAT Question Paper


The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is an all India entrance examination conducted by 11 National Law Universities in India for admissions into under-graduate and post graduate degree programmes (LL.B & LL.M). CLAT 2011 was organized by West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. CLAT 2011 was held yesterday, over 23000 students participated in the test.

As per sources there were some errors crept in CLAT Question Paper, errors as costly as questions with correctly underlined answer. Leading news paper The Hindu has reported as “some students claimed that a set of question papers (one among four sets), which was titled ‘B’, had the right answers underlined for a few questions in the legal and logical reasoning sections of the paper”. This incident has occurred in National Law School of India University.

However the CLAT Convener has reportedly said that he hasn’t gone through the answer papers yet and after reviewing if there are errors, all students will be given fair justice.

CLAT format has been changed from this year as per the new guidelines CLAT will be more of a test on student’s critical ability than memorizing the questions.

CLAT test takers and others, please share your experiences with CLAT 2011.

  1. I was not satisfied with the pattern of CLAT 2011.This time CLAT paper was very lengthy and the portion of english & legal was quite difficult & abberative(from the previous years).In my opinion,there should be one single committee to design the CLAT paper so that the candidate may focus on the certain pattern.Till now,the paper made by different universities is uncertain which is quite difficult to understand.In toto,the paper of this year was worst.

  2. This time around, CLAT was surprisingly lenghty and mathematics was easy, but way tougher than on expected lines. The English section needed time, which sadly has not been kept in mind while designing the paper. I guess the cutoffs will be way lower than last years.
