Careers360: Last year, CLAT committee had added MNLU Mumbai to its list. Is there any further addition to it?Dr. Lakshminath: As many as 18 NLUs are participating in CLAT 2017 with Maharashtra National Law University (MNLU) Nagpur, the latest entrant to the CLAT committee. CLAT 2017 aspirants will now be vying for a total of 2312 seats in five-year integrated law programmes.
Careers360: Are there any likely modifications in CLAT 2017 admission process?Dr. Lakshminath: Yes, after the BCI’s order to all universities and law institutions on age criteria, the examination committee has decided to change the eligibility criteria of CLAT 2017. Candidates should be less than 20 years of age if applying for CLAT 2017 under General category and less than 22 years if applying under OBC*/SC/ST/Specially-Abled categories.
*Note - There was confusion regarding upper age limit of OBC candidates. The BCI's official notification read 22 years as the upper age limit, whereas CLAT 2017 convenor, earlier, had shared the maximum age as 20 years, which was creating the confusion among CLAT aspirants. Careers360, on behalf of the prospective CLAT 2017 aspirants had written to the convenor regarding this after which he clarified the confusion stating that only BCI rules would be followed.

But still to answer your question, according to some statistics, a good amount of 4–5 hours a day can help you get into a tier 1 college, but those hours should be with complete dedication and for 5-6 months.
