CLAT 2017 has been conducted on May 14 across 63 cities of India. More than 45,000 law aspirants have appeared for the test. The number of applicants have increased by 13 per cent, possibly owing to the SC ruling of overturning age limit of CLAT applicants. With the highest number of applicants till date vying for 2312 seats in the undergraduate programmes and 604 seats in the postgraduate programmes offered by the NLUs, CLAT is undoubtedly one of the most competitive law entrance exams. Needless to say, candidates who have appeared for the test have a lot to say regarding the test and their law admission plans. Careers360 brings to you the CLAT 2017 student reactions.
