CLAT Exam Pattern Change

The Consortium of National Law Universities has introduced some changes in the exam pattern of CLAT 2022. The CLAT new exam pattern includes the reduction in the number of questions in the paper, the introduction of comprehensive- type questions, and adjusting the standards of the syllabus to that of Class 12. The additional changes to the CLAT exam pattern 2022 are as follows:

  • Testing Criteria: Prior to 2022, the CLAT exam was used to mainly test the knowledge of the candidates on the various subjects and topics as prescribed by the syllabus. For CLAT 2022, the candidates will be tested on their critical thinking and analytical skills.

  • Question Type: As of 2022, the questions that will be asked in the CLAT exam will be comprehension-based. Each section will have passages of about 350 to 400 words each. The passages will be followed by multiple-choice queries (MCQ) where candidates will have to choose the right answer. It is not necessary for candidates to know the topics beforehand but having prior knowledge of the subject matter will definitely give an edge to the candidate.

  • Total Marks: The CLAT exam was previously for 200 marks. However, as per the CLAT exam pattern 2022, the total marks of the CLAT exam have been set to 150 marks.
