- Share your views on this Year’s CLAT LLM Paper.
This year quality of questions were quite good. There were only few questions which were straight. This time Clat tried giving surprises to the candidates by asking questions from Companies Act, Partnership Act and NI Act. Moreover, the new add-on this year IPR helped by just contributing only one question. In Constitution, questions ranged from newly given judgements to bare-text provisions .Jurisprudence has followed the old convention as most of the questions were quite straight but ranging from different areas. In my view the third part was quite difficult as it included different spheres of law unlike last year question paper. QUICK REVISION OF SUBJECTS FOR CLAT PG
so, over all this time CLAT PG exam was not as easy as it was last year. 1-2 months study will not help you getting a good college this time.
- What is your strategy For the Exam?
CLAT is getting tougher with every passing day. New aspirants are joining this club in huge numbers with every passing year. so, in order to get admission in good NLUs you have no other option except working very hard.
I had a very simple stategy, Indepth analysis of the subjects and solving as many Mcqs is the real key. Going through last year question papers is also important and at last taking as much many mock papers as possible.
- According to you, when is the perfect time for a final year student to start the preparation for CLAT LLM?
4-5 months before the exam is an idle time for getting good rank in CLAT LLM Exam and if somebody is targeting PSU’s then one has to be on his toes. You need to cover all subjects properly as no one can predict as which question will come from which part.
- Do you think that one month is enough for preparing CLAT LLM?
One month study is not sufficient to get good rank in CLAT LLM. One has to keep some months in his pocket to get good rank.
- How have you conquered the Jurisprudence?
To conquer jurisprudence, you need to refer good books and solve as many MCQs as possible. Jurisprudence is like a never ending subject considering the kind of questions asked in the exam you have to brush up the things on daily basis. 1-2 week gap and you have to start afresh. I refer Garima Tiwari and Paranjape for my prepartion and later solved questions from different sources available in the market.
- How have you dealt with the Constitution?
I referred to the books of VN Shukla and JN Pandey. Moreover, you have to do careful reading of Bare Text provisions as nearly 50% of questions straightly comes from Bare text. apart from that you also have list down some important landmark cases which have higher probabilities of coming in exam. making note of newly given judgements by SC and HC sometimes also help in increasing your marks.
- Is the information provided by Jurisedge Portal helpful for LLM exam aspirants?
Jurisedge was of great help. It contains large number of questions which cannot be ignored considering the pattern of CLAT LLM Exam. Moreover, solving mock tests paper available on the website also helps in boosting confidence in the aspirants before the exam.
