Salient Features

All questions are now comprehension-based. In other words, multiple passages are provided in the question paper, and questions are linked to a passage. This pattern was introduced in late 2019, and CLAT 2020 was the first paper based on this pattern.

Questions are most often not linked to passages. However, there are some questions that are grouped, and have to be answered based on a common instruction/ passage.
