CLAT / AILET / SET Importance of Taking Mocks
Thousands of law aspirants make a beeline for mentorship programmes every year, but OPUS ranks as the leading institute with the highest number of placements in CLAT and other important law entrance tests. In order to make this a recurring reality, a number of strengths account for the enviable success enjoyed by OPUS and its students. We at OPUS believe that our success depends on the success achieved by our candidates. If we churn out toppers and top-scoring candidates with best-in-class mentoring, quality course materials and superb mock tests, hordes of aspirants will trust us for delivering what they look for in a reliable coaching institute.
Why OPUS mentorship
Our honest and transparent approach – with a sharp focus on bringing out the multiple strengths in candidates – is one prime reason that explains why OPUS manages to outperform year after year.

Performance during the actual exam often gets adversely affected if the candidate losing the sense of composure. OPUS guidance prepares candidates for a strong mental state that does not get ruffled by the nature of questions asked in the test.

Most candidates have a singular focus on clearing the CLAT in order to pursue a career in law. It is true that the law entrance test attracts hordes of candidates every year, and OPUS mentors several thousands of aspirants through its mentorship programmes designed with special care. But it is also important to note that apart from CLAT, All India Law Entrance test (AILET) and Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET) are the other preferred law entrance examinations.

OPUS tells them not to despair. Next year, there will be a higher number of candidates in the fray and the test will also become more difficult.
AILET and SET are reputed and highly competitive law entrance exams for which OPUS offers special mentorship to law aspirants. Being different from CLAT in content and time limits, these tests demand a slightly different strategy. As a result, mock tests and preparation for these exams also require a different approach.
