What's in a name?

This post will primarily aim to briefly compare National Law Universities with other private law schools. I will try to connect that with the dreamy thoughts and aspirations that all aspirants, including myself at one point of time, have for the NLU tag. Is that really worth it?

Every aspirant wants to get into a top NLU. The very mention of the names of your dream institute will light a fire in your mind and set you off day-dreaming in an instant. Indeed, that is the biggest…

Logical Reasoning (22-09-2015)

Part I

Mathematicians are assigned a number called Erdös number, (named after the famous mathematician, Paul Erdös). Only Paul Erdös himself has an Erdös number of zero. Any mathematician who has written a research paper with Erdös has an Erdös number of 1. For other mathematicians, the calculation of his/her Erdös number is illustrated below:

Suppose that a mathematician X has co-authored papers with several other mathematicians. From among them, mathematician…

Reading Comprehension II (22-09-2015)

Woodrow Wilson was referring to the liberal idea of the economic market when he said that the free enterprise system is the most efficient economic system. Maximum freedom means maximum productiveness; our “openness” is to be the measure of our stability. Fascination with this ideal has made Americans defy the “Old World” categories of settled possessiveness versus unsettling deprivation, the cupidity of retention versus the cupidity of seizure, a “status quo”…

Reading Comprehension I (22-09-2015)

Recent years have brought minority-owned businesses in the United States unprecedented opportunities—as well as new and significant risks. Civil rights activists have long argued that one of the principal reasons why Blacks, Hispanics, and other minority groups have difficulty establishing themselves in business is that they lack access to the sizable orders and subcontracts that are generated by large companies. Now Congress, in apparent agreement, has required by law that…

Mind your P's and Q's!

When it comes to CLAT, most people say that GK and Math are the proverbial killing fields you should maximize your scores in. However, usually these are accompanied with disproportionate levels of fear (more on GK later, I've already done one for Math phobia) from most aspirants. I would like to draw your attention to the untapped potential of the English section of CLAT.

English, since you've been studying it all your life, is seldom met with as much excitement in a coaching…

How to finish the CLAT paper in time

One year of being an aspirant and almost two years of being a mentor have made me face the constant worry of my friends and students - how to complete the paper on time? This is especially a problem for those who are slow, tend to waste a lot of time in one section without realising it and even those who mess up because of nervousness. Such aspirants not only have low scores in their mocks, but realize that they have sometimes missed out completely on one or more sections. This is compounded…

The CLAThacker Interview Series XX - The brilliant but laid-back Siddharth Dey on how he secured AIR 7 in AILET and what you should do to crack the top Law Schools!

• Tell us a bit about yourself.

• I am in my first year of undergraduate studies at NUJS. I have lived in Calcutta all my life, did my schooling from Hariyana Vidya Mandir here, and then a one-year stint in Presidency University before landing up in NUJS.

More than a third of the nation’s population growth over the decade-from 227…
