Let us all be clear about this — CLAT requires you to be fluent in English.

While some of you may be quiet confident about your English speaking and writing skills, you may not be aware of some mistakes you have been making on all this while.

Most of us do not use formal English while conversing within our close circle. While talking, we often use incorrect grammar and we do not care to correct ourselves taking solace in the fact that the other person has understood us. This neglect can lead to incorrect spellings and wrong sentence structures.

Errors in language can wreak havoc in a lawyer’s life.

So, CLAT wants you to be very well prepared in this subject and, hence, it forms an important part of the exam which you should be careful about.
