The Countdown has Begun: CLAT 2011 dates and format announced.
The WB NUJS has announced that CLAT 2011 shall be held on the 15th May, 2011. So, all aspirants need to gear up and set their house in order. The battle has begun and the culmination of it on D-Day is near in sight.
It has been announced that Legal Aptitude will have more importance and not Legal Knowledge. It seems that our predictions have come true. CLATGyan has come to know the Prof. MP Singh, VC, NUJS has indicated that General Knowledge would mainly be Current Affairs based. Static GK obviously thus loses its importance for the next edition of the Common Law Admission Test. Critical Reasoning and Logical Reasoning will have prominence. “We want to judge the student’s analytical ability, and not knowledge alone,” Prof. Singh said.
The five sections remain the same: English, Mathematics, Legal Aptitude, Logical Reasoning and General Knowledge.
With current affairs and legal knowledge being stressed upon aspirants will need to read the newspapers more carefully and practice reasoning based questions.
Also this year the forms will be available from post offices and not bank branches such that CLAT can reach out to remote and distant areas, thus increasing the access and diversity of legal education.
We shall channelize all our materials on CLATGyan keeping in mind the pattern that has been talked of by Prof. Singh. CLATGyan is all geared up to provide you with the relevant materials taking into account the new pattern and shall surely aid you in the right direction towards CLAT 2011.
May the lady luck smile upon you.
Law and Behold!!!
