Finally, the most awaited exam is over, resting the anxieties of the students all over India. On a good note, this year's CLAT exam came with minimum surprises and more on expected lines. Amidst everything, CLAT was held today on 19th June 2022 from 2-4 pm. The first impression of the exam was moderately easy. Comparatively, CLAT 2022 was near to CLAT 2021 exam in its difficulty levels. Except for the English Language which was a little lengthier, all the other sections were visibly easy-moderate.
Below is the detailed analysis of the exam discussing the individual difficulty level of the questions, sections, time and good attempts for the same.
Beginning with Quantitative techniques, all the three questions were caselets (one caselet was identical to the legal edge mock). No graph-based questions were asked this year. The section broadly included 2 topics- Ratio and proportion (one caselet) and Percentage (2 caselets). The calculation involved was not too lengthy and answers were in Integral values. All caselets were mostly calculation based where not many formulas were required. Legaledge lectures regularly focused on the given topics as well.
Difficulty level: Easy
Time: 14-15 minutes (4-5 minutes for each question)
Good attempt: 15 questions
Coming onto the Logical reasoning, all of the questions were based on critical reasoning, no analytical reasoning was included this year. All passages were at the easy-moderate level. The passages based on the Child Offences Act, and the Covid-19 outbreak were on the easier side although the passage based on Biodiversity, and Judges Humor were a little difficult to interpret none of the passages was lengthy. The questions were mostly contextual.
Time: 25-30 minutes
Good attempt: 25-30 questions
The English Language section appeared to be slightly longer in comparison to other sections. The section was standard only. 3 Reading Comprehensions out of 6 were easy based on day-to-day familiarity but another 3 were a little technical i.e. they could be a little tricky in interpretation if you're not familiar with the topics. No passages were fictional or book extracts, everything was non-fictional. Most of the questions were inference based to analyze students' thought processes. The type of questions was central idea questions, tones, contextual vocabulary, etc. A usual newspaper reader would have benefitted much in this section.
Difficulty level: Easy but slightly lengthy
Time: 30-35 minutes
Good attempt: 20-25 questions
The current affairs section was a little tricky this year. The questions were majorly direct. The questions appeared not too difficult at the onset but the options did all the trick. The topics were given at all horizontal lengths. Options were similar and out of the loop. There were some irrelevant questions as well. The passages were based on Drone rules, 2021, Science and technology, SAGAR mission, ISRO, etc.
Difficulty level: Moderate (difficult passages with moderate questions)
Time: 10-12 minutes
Lastly, the legal reasoning section was pretty easy. It was largely on predictable lines. The passages were based on Monism and dualism, Special Marriage Act, Contract Act, Bigamy and Constitution. All the passages were from the major laws and the questions were easy as well. Legaledge discussed and stressed mostly such topics only and gave thorough lectures on the same.
Time: 35-40 minutes
Good attempt: 33-37 questions
In Conclusion, the exam was easy and hope you all did a good job. Based on it, the overall good attempts would be somewhere 120-130 questions and the expected cutoff could be similar to CLAT 2021. Now that the exam is over, do not stress out about the results. The answer key will be out soon so be patient and prepare thoroughly for AILET and SLAT.
All the very best!
