Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. What is the CLAT course?

A. CLAT stands for Common Law Admissions Test. It is an all India entrance examination conducted by the National Law Schools/Universities for admissions to their under-graduate and post-graduate degree programmes (LL.B & LL.M).

Q. Why is CLAT important?

A. Importance of CLAT Preparation Like every other competitive exam, CLAT has a remarkably high demand. Moreover, with the desire to get admission to one of the best NLUs, students work very hard. The determination power is in full charge and they are willing to compromise on anything for their seat.

Q. Who can give CLAT exam?

A. CLAT Eligibility. Candidates should have passed the Higher Secondary School/Intermediate Examination (10+2) or its equivalent examination with not less than 50% marks in aggregate (45% in case of SC/ST/OBC and persons with Disability). Candidates appearing in the qualifying examination can also appear provisionally.

Q. Can I give CLAT exam after the 12th?

A. Yes, you can give CLAT UG after your 12 class exams. The CLAT or Common Law Admission Test is a National Level Law Entrance Exam held each year for the law aspirants of the country to get admissions and start their careers with the top and most prestigious law institutes of the country.
