The exam was held on September 28, 2020 in Online CBT mode across various centres in India. The number of centres was considerably increased not just for convenience purposes but to also maintain safety standards and social distancing norms.
The paper was lengthy but moderately easy. There is no need to consider the past trends, since the entire paper was based on the new pattern. But one thing was common. Like previous online CLATs, there were a few centres where the students faced technical issues.
CLAT 2020 had a total of 150 questions to be attempted in 120 minutes. The negative marking scheme was there; however, considering the difficulty level of the paper, which was easy, the marking scheme should not act as much of a deterrent to the students.
Given below is the section-wise breakup of the paper:
No. of Questions
Level of Difficulty
GK, including Current Affairs
Analysis of Current affairs Section:
The general feedback from the student is “weird”. Why? Well, for any student who has been reading newspapers diligently, this section would have been very easy. The timeline of the questions asked was June 2020 – September 2020. There were around 7 passages with a total of 36 questions. And it was important to read a passage before answering any of the questions. Overall, the section was moderately difficult. A score of 20+, with an ideal attempt of 29-30, could be considered good for this section. Following is the list of topics from which questions were asked in this section:
