CLAT 2017  Exam Analysis: By TopRankers-Legal Edge

CLAT 2017 was overall and genuinely an above average paper; just like how a National Level Entrance Test should be. Couple of questions are controversial and we need to wait for the Question Paper and the Answer Key that would be out on Tuesday, 16 May. As per the feedback of the students, please find below the analysis of each section.

Section Name

Good number of attempts for the Top 10 Law Schools

Good Score


English Language



A moderate section with a very lengthy RC and 10 questions each on Error Spotting and Fill in the blanks. A student should have attempted at least 28 questions in the paper.




The 20 questions of the section should have taken 20-25mins. It wasn’t easy but wasn’t too tough as well. Someone who is good with numbers should have attempted 15+ questions but for someone who has developed mathematics over the course of previous months should have at least 12.

General Knowledge



This section was the toughest of the lot. With most current affairs questions being asked from 2016, most kids were unprepared for the same.

Logical Reasoning



Definitely the easiest of the lot. It just seems that the section was underprepared from the CLAT authority. It was easy and questions asked were very obvious. It was difficult to get a wrong solution to any question in this section 🙂 Someone who was prepared for the section should have attempted 34+.

Legal Aptitude



15 questions on Legal Maxims surprised many. Some of them were straight forward but many weren’t. Root-word-meaning approach was used by a few to reach answers to these questions. 35 questions with twisted principles on Legal Reasoning were of moderate difficulty level. Overall a good section for well-prepared students.




A good paper for well prepared students.

  1. Paper was too hard..
    Current affairs only includes international current affairs , does not contain any questions on constitution of india and from history.
    Maths was also tricky..
    English and reasoning was slightly simple and scoring.
    i hope cut off should be go down this year..
