Legal was on expected lines, an all-reasoning saga which had lots of questions from past year papers. A little careful reading and perhaps a little attention to classroom teachings would have sailed everybody through most of legal reasoning and a truck load of the GK section. we are happy to concede, there were almost 25 marks from the CP mocks itself in the legal section! Minimum attempts should be 30+ to get a law school call. For top 3 law schools 38+ questions should be attempted.
English was just downright easy for the people who had read well. The language was not too high a standard but a little bit of speed reading would have come very handy for the aspirants. On this point it needs repetition that anybody who has consistently read the paper would have not only found the English section damn easy, but also found a huge bulk of the GK section which was literally from the front page of any leading English daily. To meet the minimum cut offs 30 questions should have been attempted, For top law schools 35+ questions should have been attempted.
There were around 30 questions from current events some as basic as CJI of India, CEC of India, Which Lok Sabha Election is this and a question on Arundhati Bhattacharya. 35 questions would be an average attempt whereas 40 + should be for top 2/3 law schools. The static GK was primarily from Modern India and Indian culture and Literature. There were also some miscellaneous questions Full marks to the black book of magic as usual! Cut offs should not vary much from usual since there were still a few tricky questions. NLSIU and NALSAR might shoot up a bit along with the other top 5 since there are always a couple of hundred people who have definitely read and prepared well. The lower rungs might not see too much alteration in cut-offs. So prima facie it seems that the cut offs should be in the range of 120+/- 5. For NLSIU and NALSAR the cut off should be in the range of 150+/- 5
