“CLAT is done and all you can do now is wait!” is what you must have heard for the past two days. However, the CLAT Committee has decided to release the questions along with the individual student’s answer key. If you still haven’t figured out what to do to view your answer key, click here.
I know most of you rushed to read this article solely for the purpose of figuring out whether you’ve made the cut to your dream law school or missed out by a minuscule .5 margin. We’ve already started receiving mails about our opinion on the cut-offs and “will I get into top 5 with xyz marks?” kind of questions. The answer to all of these is we don’t know and trust us, nobody does.
It would be best to say that CLAT 2017 was a moderately tough paper (Source: CG kids) but trying to figure out what ten thousands of people have scored on the examination written two days ago is a daunting task. We’ve earlier had posts on our Facebook group, where people attempted to tabulate the results score-wise. Yaar, itna time hai toh kuch constructive hi karlo? Or better, go watch Baahubali 2.
Also, another reason why we stress on not wasting time over cut-offs or worse, comparing previous years’ scores with this year’s is that it is pointless. With every passing year, CLAT has been an examination that has earned the reputation of being unpredictable.
Lastly, I will sign off by saying that believing in “estimated cut-offs” is like inviting trouble over. It will just lead to you getting more stressed. And if you blindly believe them and you’ve made the mark according to them, you really don’t want to be jolted if you don’t make it. If you’re on a vacation, the last thing you want is panicking over what your rank might be (speaking from experience, I almost ruined my vacation in Shimla back in 2014 because I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And guess what I have? Regrets.)
It’s upto you – The Sweet Hereafter or the Bitter Aftertaste. Yes, that’s a Riverdale reference. Go watch the season finale!
May the force (and the patience) be with you :))
