CLAT Quantitative Techniques Section

Is the Quantitative Technique section of CLAT 2023 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 with 13-17 questions in CLAT UG. CLAT 2023 Quantitative Techniques section consists of elementary maths, Class 10 topics like ratio and proportion, mensuration, basic algebra and statistical estimation. So, the students who didn’t study mathematics in Class 12 need to relearn the tricks to answer the questions. This section is easy if the CLAT aspirants make a strategy to cover the whole syllabus and practice enough mock test papers. The Quant section is one of the easiest and candidates need to consistently put effort if they are not really good in this section. 

CollegeDekho has assembled a few tips to prepare for the Quantitative Techniques section of CLAT 2023. Check it out along with the CLAT 2023 exam pattern and CLAT syllabus for the Quantitative Techniques section.

CLAT 2022 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 2022 unattempted.

  • 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 2023.
  • Find the  best books to practice the topics involved in CLAT 2023 Quantitive Techniques section.
