I am 28 now. Can i get admission in basis of CLAT ot LSAT Score

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020
There is no age limit for appearing in CLAT 2020 for UG program as well as in CLAT PG exam. So if you are able to fetch decent score, then you can get admission on the basis of that score. There is also no upper age limit for appearing in LSAT India Examination. But you can check the age limit specified by individual colleges wherein you want to seek admission.
