CLAT 2011 results soon-New CLAT format too lengthy, takes 2 hours time

Common Law Admission Test 2011...
The new pattern of CLAT 2011-Common Law Admission Test troubled students on Sunday, The new pattern of CLAT paper too lengthy for the 2 hours allotted to them. CLAT 2011 was held in 19 cities, holds the key to the 1,200-odd LLB and LLM seats across 11 law schools and at least seven other institutions. 24,256 candidates had applied for the fourth edition of the pan-India exam. The 200-mark examination had questions on English, general awareness, logical reasoning, legal aptitude and quants.
It was the verbal ability and legal reasoning section that took students by surprise. The paper was very lengthy, especially the verbal ability part. Most students could have missed 25-30 questions. There was hardly any vocabulary or grammar and analytical reasoning — a deviation from the usual CLAT pattern. The paper was a marked deviation from the previous CLAT papers, and students found it difficult to complete the paper on time. Not one of the mock papers I had attempted had such a pattern.
