SET 2017 Analysis

* The difficulty level of a section is assessed as a function of both the toughness of questions as well as deviation from the expected pattern.

Sectional Analysis:

1. English & Comprehension :

There were 6 passages with 5 questions each. Majority of the questions were direct questions; around 2 questions from each paragraph were contextual vocabulary based. Though words were familiar, the options required careful observation. The size of the passages was small like always. So, overall it is an easy section.

2. Legal Reasoning:

This section was comparatively easy. There was more emphasis on legal reasoning, however, there were around 10 fact-based questions without principles. Landmark judments were touched upon. However, ALP students who are familiar with the concepts of contracts, torts, criminal and criminal law would have scored well.

3. Logical Reasoning:

The section had no major surprises. It was as student friendly as English was. With questions from Assumptions/Conclusions, Strong & weak arguments, Syllogisms, Assertion-Reason, Cause & effect, it was overall an easy section.

4. Analytical Reasoning:

As seen in previous years, this section had a few maths questions. In addition to the regular arrangement-based puzzles, blood relations, coding/decoding & series, there were a couple of data interpretation questions based on pie charts and bar charts. Students who did not get fazed by new types of questions would have done well.

5. General Knowledge:

Of all the sections, students found GK to be tough. There was a mix of Current Affairs and Static GK with a few science questions too. Students felt some of the questions were tricky as they were not direct.

Before joining Abhyaas i was unsure about CLAT but Abhyaas supported through out my preparation and gave me confidence that i could crack Clat. I personally liked the Naresh sir's current affairs classes.

I've been able to make it to NLUO in just about a months preparation thanks to Abhyaas. The teachers are extremely supportive and the material is really extensive . The best part about Abhyaas is the current affairs compendium , it's excellent and just the thing you need for quick but exhaustive preparation of current affairs. The online portal for subject tests and online mocks are really user friendly and resourceful. Most importantly, I got a sense of direction with respect to preparation after joining Abhyaas and would like to thank them for their infinite support !
