AIR 98 CLAT 2016

SRIRAM LAW ACADEMY interacted with ROHIT IYENGAR who secured a top rank in CLAT 2016.

Here’s the interview:

SLA : You have achieved a top rank in CLAT 2016.  How does it feel?

ROHIT  : It feels brilliant and it is a huge weight off my shoulders, now that the exam is finally over. The past year was extremely strenuous but it's nice to see the hard work pay off.

SLA : What / who inspired you to consider law as a career option?

ROHIT  :  The biggest influences for me to choose law as a career have been John Grisham's books and TV shows like 'Suits' and 'The Practice'. Apart from that, I have always enjoyed debating and other public speaking activities so Law seems like an appealing choice.

SLA : Describe the role played by Sriram Law Academy in your success.

ROHIT  :  I enrolled in the Sriram Rapid course and the Sriram Achiever course. Through the Achiever course I was able to get an introduction and a firm base in the concepts of the various subjects. In the Rapid course, the intensive teaching helped in tackling all the various kinds of questions that could appear in the examination.

SLA :How did you manage to tackle "negative marking" in CLAT?

ROHIT: I did not let the possibility of negative marking affect the number of questions I attempted. If I had a reasonable assumption, I went with it. If you focus on the negative marking too much then you will end up attempting only around 160 or 170 questions which would not be very helpful.

SLA : GK is a vast area.  Given that you had to work on both Current Affairs and Static GK, how did you go about it?

ROHIT  : For the static GK part I went through the A to Z on GK

book which was given. As far as current affairs was concerned, I went through which was extremely helpful, especially the MCQ questions whichespecially the MCQ questions which are updated daily.

SLA : Would you like to share some tips with our students who are gearing up for the 2016 examination?

ROHIT  :  As far as the CLAT and AILET go, it's a lot of hard work. You will need to study a lot in order to do well, which is true for all examinations. But in the midst of all the studying, don't forget to relax and just de-stress yourself for a while. Listening to music, playing a sport or watching a TV show could help ease your mind.
Best of Luck,
