I failed in Maths in science stream, but passed overall with 70%. So am I eligible for CLAT & AILET exams. plzz reply!!!

Ashish pal Student Expert 3rd Oct, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

As of now you will be facing a great problem at the time of admission because they can't allow a failed candidate. Yes in eligibility criteria you will find that only +2 passed is required. But it will be not sufficient when you go for admission.

Hope you get it.

Good luck.


how much extra time is given to pwd students in CLAT and AILET?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 1st Oct, 2019

Dear Sonu, Candidates with PWD can opt for Scribes. Scribes are those who assist PWD Candidates in writing the exam. The scribe will read out the question for the Candidate and the Candidate will give the answer and the scribe has to mention that as the answer. These scribes are used for visually imparied, Candidates with cerebral palsy, with locomotor disabilities and whose speed or writing or using a mouse is affected. And there is a compensatory time of 20 minutes allotted in additional for every 1 hour of exam duration. So for CLAT, there is 40 minutes of additional time that is allotted.
