Is CLAT a good career? Is CLAT a good career option?

Yes. Law is a great career option these days and is increasing in popularity thanks to the wide range of employment and practice opportunities that are coming up.

The NLUs are some of the best colleges for studying Law in India and CLAT is the entrance exam for these Institutions. In addition, the CLAT scores are accepted by more than fifty other Law Colleges across India, which makes CLAT a great exam for entering the field of Law.


Is CLAT an online test? Is CLAT online exam? Is CLAT online or offline 2020?

No. In 2019, the CLAT was conducted in an offline mode and went off much more smoothly than the 2018 online edition, which had a number of glitches.

While we wait for the official CLAT 2020 announcement by the CLAT Consortium, we can safely assume that this year too, the CLAT will be held in a pen-and-paper offline mode.

Whether it is online or offline, the preparation strategy for candidates will not change, so the focus should be on completing as many mock tests as possible, under test conditions.


Is CLAT coaching necessary? Is coaching necessary for CLAT?

In any good CLAT 2020 coaching program, you can expect three components.

  • The essential reference material
  • A structured study program for consistent preparation
  • Mock Tests and Previous Question papers that are the foundation to your exam prep

 

There are many Online and Offline coaching providers for CLAT 2020. You should also check out the MagicExam Online Practice Packs, which provide you with all the three aforementioned components.


Is CLAT compulsory for LLB? Is CLAT necessary for law?

No. CLAT is the entrance exam for the NLUs and other Institutions that accept the CLAT scores.

There are many other Law colleges in India which have their own entrance exams or there are also colleges which admit students on the basis of their previous academic scores alone.

As long as the College and the LLB Degree are recognized by the Bar Council of India, the holder is eligible to be employed as a Lawyer or practice as an Advocate in India.


Is CLAT Counselling fees refundable?

As per the official notification, Students who opt to withdraw from the CLAT admission process during any list will be provided with a refund of INR 40,000 after deducting an amount of INR 10,000 as processing fee.

Students who were assigned a seat in a NLU, and paid the amount and have not joined any NLU will be given a refund of INR 40,000 after deducting an amount of INR 10,000 as processing fee.


Is CLAT difficult? Is CLAT exam tough? Is it difficult to crack CLAT?

No. If you look at the syllabus for the CLAT exam and analyse the previous question papers, you will see that the CLAT exam is not particularly tough to start with. But what makes the exam difficult to crack are :

  • The limited time available to solve each question
  • The sheer amount of competition, where even a fraction of a mark can make a big difference in the Rank and the choice of NLU

 

The key to cracking the CLAT are a structured preparation program, adequate practice in the form of relevant mock tests and previous papers and time management while answering the exam.

Is CLAT 2020 negative marking?

Yes. There is a 0.25 negative mark for every wrong answer. There is no negative marking for unanswered questions.

Our suggestion has always been that candidates should answer all the questions, by eliminating the obviously wrong answer choices and guessing between the probable answers.
There is a good probability of selecting the right choice with an informed guess and earning that extra mark – which can make a significant difference.


Is crash course enough for CLAT?

The ideal study period for CLAT 2020 is three to four months. However, it is possible to score good marks with even one month of dedicated CLAT preparation – with a focused attention of at least eight hours per day, every day.

The keys to success are to solve as many relevant mock tests as possible and familiarise yourself with the expected and important questions; and to practice ‘time management’, which will help in covering all the questions with confidence.


Is it compulsory to live in hostel NLU Delhi?

Yes. As per the current information available, it is compulsory to stay in the hostel while pursuing your LLB at NLU Delhi.

Given the rigor of the academics and the fact that there can be classes even on Saturdays, staying at the hostel is more conducive.


Is it possible to crack CLAT 2020 without coaching?

Yes. Every year many students who crack the CLAT and get into the top NLUs without any formal coaching.

For effective self-study preparation, you will need the following.

  • The essential reference material – which is freely available on the internet
  • A structured study program for consistent preparation
  • Mock Tests and Previous Question papers that are the foundation to your exam
