CLAT 2024 Result: Both rank holders got the 99.99 percentile, but the student secured the second rank due to better performance in the legal section
A teacher and student duo from Bengaluru secured All India Rank of 2 and 3 in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2024. Both rank holders got the 99.99 percentile, but the student secured the second rank due to better performance in the legal section, reported Times of India.
Rahul Palakurthy who is a teacher at Career Launcher Institute in Indiranagar secured rank 3 while his student Pradhyot Shah, a class 12 student got rank 2. The teacher who has been training students for the law entrance exam, said that this was the third time he had taken the CLAT exam.
“I take exams to plan for better teaching strategies for students and be updated with the exam patterns. The competitive exams can never be predictable, and the right approach is needed to crack them in the given time. For teachers, writing such tests will also help them to introspect their teaching methods to students,” he told the publication.
