The questions that were asked saw a tectonic shift in the pattern. CLAT 2015 was nothing but (CLAT = CAT+L), where most of the questions in English, Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning section were in verbatim with CAT 2003. Legal Aptitude turned out to be a nightmare for the students. In all, this year the question paper was completely out of the box which left even well prepared students fumbling with the questions. Total Questions: 200 Total Marks: 200 Total Duration: 120 minutes Negative Marking: 0.25 Section 1: English No. of Questions: 40 This section comprised of 1 easy passage with 10 doable questions. 5-6 questions on Antonyms and Synonyms. 3-4 questions on Idioms and Phrases. 6- 7 questions on Fill in the Blanks in a cloze test format and few questions on grammatical error. There was an additional set of questions were the best conclusion for the given passages was asked. Surprisingly there were no questions from Para Jumble and Foreign words. 7 Questions from Analogy were asked in this section. This section overall ranged from easy to moderate and an attempt of 29-33 questions can be considered a good attempt. 25+ score would be a good score for this section. Section 2: Reasoning No. of Questions: 40 This section was a mixed bag with questions being asked from all the sections except Critical Reasoning. 10 questions were asked on Puzzles. 5 questions were asked from Blood Relation.

Section 3: Legal Aptitude No. of Questions: 50 This section was a nightmare in CLAT. Legal Knowledge dominated this section with 30-35 questions.

G.K. would not have taken more than 12-14 minutes. 35+ would be considered a good score in this section. Section 5: Quantitative Aptitude No. of Questions: 20 This section was a section full of surprises with Data Interpretation of CAT level finding its place in the question paper The other topics ranged from Profit and Loss, Percentage, Speed and Distance, etc. 7 questions from Data Interpretation were found in this section in a tabular format.
