Law Optional 7 cleared and 271 is the top marks

Hello friends,
While certain optionals have gone upto 356, law has scored a mere 270 as top. How do we get close to even 300 considering the inflation in marks in all papers except law. Should we bring this to the attention of chairperson. Would it help so as to enable parity is maintained.

    Bhai college publicly declare karne k mann nahi karta. Haa college grad is useful. Basics are learnt from there. We have to revise and reproduce it better and in the rightful way. In college we don't structure answers well and only write what we wish to write, because we know very less. :smile: doesn't work that ways here. Structure is important. So is content.
  • Dear, Senior's, need, Suggestion.

    I myself have a two digit score in paper 1. So I wouldn't be the right person to guide you. It's important to write and practice previous years papers and revise the probables very thoroughly. Cases must necessarily be placed if the question demands it.
  • @Civils2014 toh P2 ki kar do, how much u have scored in P2

    Good coaching centres are not available .
    Moreover, what is good is subject to interpretation,need etc etc..
    Better start self study as early as possible.
    Self study will pay you.

  • Scoring in law paper 2 depends on correct orientation of writing answers. The highest in law was 304 in 2016. One should target scoring good marks in paper 2 as it is very easy to score there. Paper 1 scoring depends on one's analysis in simple legal orientation with minimum and only most apt case mentioning. Focus should be on grasping the specific articles and sections as questions these days are coming directly from them.
