“My CLAT 2015 rank improved by 210 ranks; I am pleasantly surprised,” shared Ankit, a CLAT 2015 taker, after CLAT Committee issued revised result and ranking on June 6 late night admitting two more erroneous questions in addition to an error detected earlier in a separate question of CLAT 2015 paper. According to the CLAT officials, CLAT takers have now been awarded one more mark for an erroneous question irrespective of their attempt to the question. Further, an additional answer option to another question was found to be correct and candidates who marked that particular answer option have been awarded full marks for that question.[Click here to Know Which NLU College you will get based on your CLAT 2015 Marks or call 011-40360360]Latest - CLAT 2015 Merit List published on June 12 by RMLNLU.

But, the revised result and ranking has brought a huge change in the relative All India Ranking of CLAT takers. Ironically, those candidates who had earlier attempted both the questions correctly are at a relative loss in the ranking order. The revised marking scheme hugely benefits to those candidates who had attempted both the questions incorrectly. While the first category of candidates had zero effect on their marks, their ranking fell by over 200 ranks in some cases. So, how the revised results affected the ranking order of CLAT takers?
Careers360 dig into the revised scoring process and its subsequent effect on overall ranking order. With this analysis, we have found that relative rank changed by a margin of over 200 ranks in many cases.
Before we explain case-by-case upward or downward marks under the revised marking scheme, let us have a quick glance on the questions which affected the scores.
Question No: 186 (question ID: 1907), one mark has been given to all those candidates who have marked either option 'C' or 'D' as correct answer as both the options in this questions were identically same.
Question No: 35 (Question ID: 1744), due to typographical error in this question, question has been withdrawn and one mark has been given to all the candidates appeared in the examination.
Earlier on May 23, the CLAT Committee had analyzed a typo error in Question No. 182 of Question ID 1902. Subsequently, the CLAT Committee had withdrawn the question and awarded one bonus marks to all CLAT 2015 test-takers.

Below is the explanation of each of the cases mentioned in the table above –
Case 1 – In this case, candidate had attempted both the questions and as per the officially released answer key, both the responses were correct. Since the candidate had attempted both the questions correctly, therefore no mark have been awarded in the revised score card.
Case 2 – In this case, candidate had attempted both the questions and as per the officially released answer key, responded Question No. 35 correctly but Question No. 186 incorrectly (marked D answer option). Therefore, the candidate have now been awarded 1.25 in total as per the re-issued score card. The addition of 0.25 marks in addition to 1 mark is due to the fact that earlier 0.25 marks were deducted against Question No. 186 as per the negative marking scheme.
Case 3 – In the third case, candidate had attempted both the questions and as per the officially released answer key, responded Question No. 35 incorrectly and Question No. 186 correctly (C answer option). Therefore, the candidate have now been awarded 1.25 in total as per the revised score card. The addition of 0.25 marks in addition to 1 mark is again due to the fact that earlier 0.25 marks were deducted against Question No. 35 as per the negative marking scheme.
Case 4 – In the case, candidate had attempted both the questions and as per the officially released answer key, both the responses were found incorrect. Since the candidate had attempted both the questions incorrectly, as a result of re-evaluation, the candidate is in gain of 2.5 marks in total where he has been awarded 0.50 marks more apart from addition of 2 marks that were deducted under negative marking.
Case 5 – In this case, candidate had attempted only Question No. 35 and as per the officially released answer key, the response was correct. Therefore, no mark have been awarded in the re-issued score card for this.
Case 6 – In this case, candidate had attempted only Question No. 35 and as per the officially released answer key, the response was incorrect. Therefore, 1.25 marks have been awarded in the re-issued score card for this, with inclusion of 0.25 marks due to the negative marking deduction.
Case 7 – In this case, candidate had attempted only Question No. 186 (C answer option) and as per the officially released answer key, had correctly marked it. Therefore, 1 mark has been awarded bonus marks in the re-issued score card for the Question No. 35, which was not attempted.
Case 8 – In this case, candidate had attempted only Question No. 186 (D answer option) and as per the officially released answer key, had incorrectly marked it. Therefore, 2.25 marks have been awarded, where 1 bonus mark has been awarded for Question No. 35, which was not attempted and 1 mark again for attempting Question No. 186 incorrectly with an addition of 0.25 marks under negative marking policy.
Case 9 – In the last but not the least case, candidate who had not attempted any of the questions has been awarded 1 bonus mark for not attempting Question No. 35.
