The Quantitative Techniques section is the decisive component of CLAT 2021 as 13-17 questions asked in the exam are from this section. Candidates preparing for CLAT 2021 can take help from the preparation tips for CLAT 2021 Quantitative Techniques given in this article.

CLAT Quantitative Techniques Section

Is the Quantitative Technique section of CLAT 2021 a matter of concern for you? Don't worry, you are not alone. A lot of CLAT aspirants are more concerned about the Quant section rather than the rest even though this section carries only around 10% weightage of the CLAT UG 2021's paper. CollegeDekho has assembled a few tips to prepare for the Quantitative Techniques section of CLAT 2021. Check it out along with the CLAT 2021 exam pattern and CLAT syllabus for the Quantitative Techniques section.

CLAT 2021 Quantitative Techniques Exam Pattern

Earlier Elementary Mathematics was the name of the section with questions based on Algebra, Number System, Geometry and Mensuration, Percentages, Simplifications, Profit & Loss, SI/CI, Ratio, Mixtures, Averages, Time Speed Distance, Time and Work, Venn Diagrams and Modern Maths. However, in 2020, the section was renamed as Quantitative Techniques wherein candidates can expect questions based only on graphs, tables, charts or a combination of graphs. The reason behind the change was to see if the candidate can reasonably deduce answers by looking at graphs, tables or charts.

The section is expected to be easier than the previous year but it could be a little more time-consuming as compared to previous CLAT question papers.

NOTE: Do not leave the Quantitative Section of CLAT 2021 unattempted.

CLAT 2021 Quantitative Techniques Syllabus

CLAT UG 2021 Quantitative Techniques Section will comprise short sets of facts or propositions, graphs, pictorial or diagrammatic, or other textual, representations of numerical information from the graphs, representations or passages. The section requires the application of mathematical operations on such information.

These questions will demand the following:

  • Deriving, inferring and manipulating numerical information given in the passages, graphs or other representations, and
  • Applying various 10th standard mathematical operations on the information, from areas like ratios and proportions, mensuration, basic algebra and statistical estimation.

Coming on to the tips to prepare for the Quantitative Techniques section of CLAT 2021, CollegeDekho has curated a few that have been mentioned below:

  • Candidates must understand that the Quantitive Techniques section is the decisive section for the top rankers of CLAT. It should be noted that candidates who seek admission to the best National Law Universities (NLUs) in India must not ignore this section because it would only have 15-17 questions divided amongst 3-4 sets of questions.

  • According to the sample paper released by the Consortium of NLUs, there were 3 questions on Time, Speed and Distance. This must be taken as an implication that candidates must prepare questions based on the same.

  • The quantitative Techniques section would be application-oriented, acing which demands more and more practice.

  • Prepare a schedule! Although this section has the least weightage, an appropriate amount of time and practice must be devoted.

  • Practice is the key, which is obvious especially for this section. Candidates must take mock tests and practise the sample questions provided by the conducting body of CLAT 2021.

  • Find the best books to practice the topics involved in CLAT 2021 Quantitive Techniques section.

  • Solve the past year papers of CAT or GMAT. Having said that, it must also be remembered that the difficulty level of GMAT or CAT is way higher than that of CLAT. Hence, scoring average in the Quant section in those papers will mean scoring well in CLAT 2021. Look only for the quant questions.

  • Watch preparation videos available on YouTube that is available for free and solve questions at the same time.
