Message from CLATapult:
So that’s the competition! 29530 CLAT aspirants.
But thing is even if the number would have been 2953 or 295300 your level of preparation would have been the same.
The only yardstick is: did you give it your best shot?
Did you make the 60 seconds of the minute, the 60 minutes of the hour and the 24 hours of the day count? (And while at it, did you manage to stay healthy and awake?)
