HOW CLAT 2019 GOING OFFLINE CAN BENEFIT YOU ?

The announcement that CLAT 2019 is going to be conducted in the conventional paper-pencil mode has come as a shocker to many students as it sounds like a throwback to the olden days of competitive exams.

But, this could be a blessing in disguise for many of you as an offline test carries a lot of benefits as compared to an online test. Listed below are some of them:

1. EASE OF BROWSING THROUGH :
In an offline test, it is easy to move to any page and question of the test, hence enabling you to score more as compared to an online test.

2. ZERO TECHNICAL GLITCHES: CLAT 18 was a nightmare for many a student because of the technical issues it threw at them. Many deserving students lost their chances of getting into an NLU and had to waste a precious year of preparation. There is no room for technical glitches in offline papers which is heartening.

3. LESS PRESSURE DUE TO ABSENCE OF THE ONLINE TIMER:

Many students have reported that the reverse counting that goes on the online timer increases their heartbeat and creates a lot of pressure which will not be the case now.
Although this timer will be replaced by wrist watches, students are less likely to look into the watch every now and then and take unnecessary pressure on them.

4. INCREASE IN READING SPEED: Text written on a paper is easy to read and understand than that on the computer screen. Also underlining the important parts for further reference becomes easy now.
Your newspaper reading habit will now yield better results

5. ROUGH WORK BECOMES EASY:
Although, even in offline tests rough sheets are given to students, there is nothing easier than scribbling on the question paper itself which gives you supersonic speeds in the exam. This is possible now.

These were some of the benefits of an offline test over an online test and if prepared in the right way, you can ace it in style.

DOWNSIDES OF AN OFFLINE TEST:

1. INCONSISTENCY BY THE INVIGILATORS :

The timing, i.e start and end, of an offline paper is generally in hands of the invigilators and some of them give a minute or two more to a classroom whereas some distribute the papers late and hence, steal the students’ precious minutes. These inconsistencies will now recur with the adoption of the offline paper.

2. SCORCHING HEAT AND CLASSROOMS: An online test is generally conducted in air-conditioned computer labs opposed to the offline tests which are conducted generally in uncomfortable government schools and colleges which makes it difficult for students to handle the May heat.

3. CHEATING AND CENTRE RIGGING ISSUES: It has happened many a times in the past that mass copying and centre rigging issues have take place in some of the notorious states.
These issues may recur.

4. DELAY IN RESULTS: Offline paper checking is a tedious process and hence may delay the results which is never the case in online tests.

TOP LAW UNDERGRADUATE ENTRANCE EXAMS IN INDIA

TOP LAW UNDERGRADUATE ENTRANCE EXAMS IN INDIA

“It’s easy to make good decisions when there are no bad options” -  Robert Half

Law, as a career option, has gained quite a name for itself in India over the last couple of years since the introduction of the 5 year integrated law programme that awards a dual degree. With as many as 19 National Law Universities and also many other successful private law colleges established in various states over these years, a large section of Indian youth with an intellectual inclination is finding its dream vocation in law. As such, it’s crucial for any law aspirant to make themselves aware of all the options they have available for themselves from this huge pile of exams and colleges.

Let us begin with the list of exams.

Note:

(1) All of the following exams are conducted for LLB as well as LLM unless mentioned otherwise.

(2) The dates given in this article pertain to Law Entrance exams in 2018 only.


LAW EXAMS TO BE TAKEN FOR 5 YEAR INTEGRATED PROGRAMME:

CLAT

CLAT or the Common Law Admission Test is the umbrella exam, on the basis of which admissions are granted in all National Law Universities all over India except for NLU Delhi, which has its own separate selection test. In fact the responsibility of the conduction of this exam is borne by these NLUs in rotation. Additionally 43 other law schools are eligible to use the scores obtained by aspirants in CLAT making this the most important and wide ranging law exam of India.

Pattern:

For a detailed discussion of the pattern of this exam please refer to this article.

When to Apply? : Jan 1st-March 31st, 2018

Expected date/month of examination: 13th May, 2018

AILET (All India Law Entrance Test)

This exam is conducted solely for the purpose NLU Delhi admissions.

Pattern:

The pattern is almost same as CLAT but the number of questions (150 questions) and time allotted (one and a half hour) differ. Also, unlike CLAT, it is conducted offline. As CLAT, negative marking is a part of this exam.

When to apply? The 2018 AILET has already been conducted and dates are yet to be declared for 2019 LET. However, going as per the dates last time, the application process for AILET 2019 should begin in October, 2018

Expected date/month of examination: January 2019

LSAT India (Law School Admission Test India)

Conducted in India by Pearson VUE, under the aegis Law School Admission council, USA, many Indian as well as foreign universities recognise LSAT scores.

Pattern:

Aspirants are supposed to answer a total of 92-100 questions over a period of 2 hrs 20 mins. There is NO negative marking. There are a total of 4 sections (Analytical reasoning, 1st Logical Reasoning, 2nd Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension) and each section is timed (35 minutes each). This exam is quite different from the above two exams and it would be a wise idea to go through previous year papers for the same. It is an offline exam.

To understand the pattern better please visit their official site.

When to apply?

It is conducted 4 times a year, hence the different months when application process begin are: May, August/September, November and January.

Expected exam date/month:

June, September/October, December and February

SET (Symbiosis Entrance Test)

This exam is conducted only for the undergraduate course (that is LLB) in institutes of Symbiosis International University. This exam is not held for the purpose of admission into LLM.

Pattern:

The paper consists of the same 5 sections as that of CLAT with each section accounting for 30 questions and 30 marks, so there would be a total of 150 questions. It is an offline exam that spans over a period of 2 and a half hours, which gives you an average of one minute per question. There is NO negative marking.

When to Apply? Anytime between January 9th– April 15th, 2018

Expected Date/month of examination: May 5th, 2018

Delhi University Law Entrance Exam:

This exam, conducted for the renowned Delhi University, is held only in the cities of Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kolkata, Nagpur and Varanasi (the test centres declared for the exam in 2017; 2018 declarations haven’t yet been made).

Pattern:

A total of 100 questions are asked with each right answer awarding +4 marks and each wrong one awarding -1. The paper is divided in 4 sections: English (including RC), General Awareness, Logical reasoning and Legal Aptitude, with no certainty as to how many questions would be asked from each section. This makes this exam a tad unpredictable. This again is an offline exam spanning over a duration of 2 hours.

When to Apply ? The application process should start by 3rd week of April, 2018 ending sometime in May, 2018.

Expected Date/Month of Examination: June, 2018.

Other University Level Examinations:
  • AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) Law Entrance Exam
  • IPU CET for Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University
  • CUSAT (Cochin University of Science and Technology) Law Entrance exam
  • LPU NEST for Lovely Professional University
  • JMI (Jamia Milia Islamia) Law Entrance exam

Application process for most of the above universities starts in January. The way of asking questions in the exam may differ a little but the content would almost be similar to the exams listed in points 1-5. It is a good idea to go through previous year papers of these exams so as to equip yourself better with what to expect.

If you have made up your mind to pursue a career in law then you have many options. Choose well, apply in time, prepare smartly and you should sail smoothly through these turbulent times of college admissions.

May the force be with you.
