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.

CLAT 2018 Analysis | Topic wise Distribution | Level of Difficulty

Finally the wait is over. This year’s CLAT was finally conducted with lot of technical glitches & haphazard. Many of the students are complaining regarding the mismanagement of this year’s exam.

Our review of CLAT – 2018 :

In English section, the level of difficulty was moderate. But RC & cloze passage section was slightly tough which shows that examiners went to check the comprehending knowledge of students.Rest was simple.

In General Knowledge section,majority of questions were from national & International Current Affairs questions were also from Sports, Awards, Books & Authors, Economics Development etc.

Logical Reasoning was slightly tougher than the previous year paper. Maximum number of questions were from analytical reasoning.There was one set of arrangement that was best left.

Legal Aptitude was very much conventional. Questions were from Contracts, Torts, Basic legal knowledge.

Maths section was really tough, were was no point in asking questions from simplification to the future lawyers.

Overall any attempt between 140-150 is a very good attempt. Also this year we are expecting less cutoff than the previous year as the pape was tough and due to technical glitches lot of students have lost time.

For topic-wise distribution please watch our CLAT 2018 Analysis on youtube.
