  1. what about pattern ?

    Kunal: As the saying goes slow and steady wins the race. Unlike notifications & admission news, this (Academic Inputs such as pattern etc) is not a game of who delivers the first blow, but who hits the nail, gets closest to the target. So unlike some other people we aren’t rushing up to tell you what the pattern will be. As you know law schools never reveal the pattern, and they aren’t planning to make an exception this year.
    Our academic team is already working intensively on chalking out format for CLAT, a predicted pattern to the best of our judgement. Just like life there are no gurantees, (this isn’t about buying a pressure cooker). Very soon you will hear from us on this, not that we are using it as an excuse to twiddle thumbs. We just want to be sure and don’t want to take any chances. When it comes to giving you information especially when they are academic in nature, I’d rather be the guy coming second in the race, than give you an incorrect one. I don’t want to be part of a rat race, the problem with them is that even if you win, you are still a RAT

  2. Sir could you please tell me that while filling the OMR sheet do we’ve to write with a black ball point pen or blue boll pen in the boxes given there??
