About CLAT

ABOUT CLAT

The one word that can be used to describe the CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) exam is ‘uncertain’. Going by the precedents no one can design a definite plan to approach the examination and that is the main problem while preparing for it. Take any other competitive exam and you will have some structure to the question paper and a few universal strategies that can be used to crack that particular exam, but it’s not the same when it comes to the nation’s prestigious Law Entrance Exam CLAT. Changes that we have seen in the past editions of CLAT range from change in medium from offline to online then back to offline to changes in the pattern of the paper itself and the tectonic shift in the pattern in CLAT 2020. Qualifying CLAT exam is the top priority for any student who cherishes a dream to become a lawyer. That is the why it is quiet essential to find the Best coaching for CLAT and other law entrance examinations. As a coaching does not only provide the study materials that are most relevant but also help in strategizing the preparation according to the student’s requirement and preventing them from losing track of their preparation. Besides that, it is helpful knowing that someone has you back even if the pattern of exam changes significantly.

 

About the changed pattern of CLAT 2020

With the advent of the consortium of National Law universities, there’s again a huge shift in the pattern of the paper for the year 2020. And with the rising cases of corona the CLAT exam also got postponed to a much later date which is still tbd. We have witnessed the entire classroom coaching getting closed and that left many students disappointed, especially the ones who had thought of joining a crash course for CLAT in some coaching. Many students are looking for the proper online substitution of the classes. Addressing this issue we at CLAT Gurukul are grateful to have an online setup in existence since way long. Our online courses including live classes are the best for online preparation of CLAT

About the Clatness OF CLAT

Many students will try to pursue their dream of getting into a National Law Institute, but it will become reality for only about a few per cent of the appearing students. It’s not about how one has prepared for the exam but it is more about the comparative advantage one has over other in the preparation for the exam given the acute competition that can be seen in the CLAT exams till now and it is only going to increase with the opening of new national universities every year. It is safe to say then that cracking CLAT is not a one man’s job. You need a team to do that given the type of paper usually comes in the exam. Best coaching for law entrance tests for understanding of the changing CLAT pattern as well as the capability to come up with relevant study material and content suitable for the new pattern in little to no time. Especially under the new changed pattern wherein, all the questions are expected to check the reading and comprehension skill of the students, it is required that an appearing student backs up his preparation with the best mocks and practice sets available. Our CLAT UG preparation material combined with the CLAT preparation strategy are few of the golden resources that helped our students dearly in the past and will hopefully do so in the coming examinations. Be it Critical reasoning for CLAT, Analytical reasoning for CLAT, Study materials for preparing legal section in CLAT, English for CLAT, Quantitative aptitude for CLAT or GK and Current Affairs for CLAT, our courses covers everything holistically and our students rarely find the need to refer to any other study material or resources, all credits to the sufficiency of the materials in the courses. While we highly encourage student to supplement the study material provided by us with  at least the news paper daily but many of our students who qualified in the CLAT EXAMS and other Law entrance exams shared with us afterwards that they never felt the need to read the newspapers even as our materials cover em all.
