CLAT 2022 exam analysis by LegalEdge

According to CLAT mentor Shah Nawaz Rayeen, the exam was moderately easy at the onset and comparatively near to CLAT 2021 exam. It was mostly in predictable lines and fairly on the easier side for most sections. The good attempts this year would fall somewhere 120-130 questions and the expected cutoff could be similar to CLAT 2021.
