8 Dec 2023  Read 3252 Views

The Common Law Admission Test for post-graduate studies (CLAT LLM) was conducted on 3 December 2023, and a record 93.92% of registered students appeared for the exam. The exam was for the academic year 2024-25, and these students are appearing for approximately 1300 seats.*

What was different in the CLAT PG 2024 Exam was the increased number of passages, resulting in a time-consuming test. Some students also said that lengthier options made it difficult to attempt the whole paper. 

Let's now have a look at the paper of CLAT PG 2024!

Overview of CLAT PG 2024 Question Paper

No. of passage


No. of questions per passage


Total question


Negative marking

0.25 for every wrong answer

Following is a paragraph-wise analysis of passages asked in CLAT PG - 2024 

Some passages have been marked difficult because while the questions were of moderate level, the options were so lengthy that it became difficult to answer them timely.

As we can understand from the analysis above, questions from international law, transfer of property and Specific Relief Act were more complex. Whereas questions from criminal or constitutional law were mainly more straightforward. All these questions tested the students on the following:

  1. Time management

  2. Basic understanding of the law

  3. Legal Awareness

The CLAT PG 2024 paper was relatively easy if only the time provided to attempt 24 passages had been more than 120 minutes.
