After report, criticism, 2nd CLAT mock now tweaked to allow students move between sections, answers

Good news for CLAT hackers: You can now change your answers to questions and take sections in any order
Good news for CLAT hackers: You can now change your answers to questions and take sections in any order

Following our report on 17 July of a particularly test-taker-unfriendly format in the first mock exam, the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) has tweaked its software for the second mock exam that has been made live today.

The latest mock now allows candidates to change their answers to questions and move freely between sections, more like a paper exam, according to a notification on the CLAT mock exam landing page (see screenshot above).

It will be a welcome change, since the previous system had been heavily criticised by candidates and CLAT trainers.

We have reached out to CLAT consortium members for comment and whether they have made any other tweaks.

In our last report, one member of the consortium had said: “This is precisely why we did the mocks. We will revise and redesign iteratively.”

“We have to balance anti cheating/integrity measures and convenience” the official had added. “So review options and section order options will be based on feedback and evidence.”
