How to calculate the marks through CLAT Answer Key

Since every correct answer is awarded 1 marks and every incorrect answer will deduct 0.25 marks, one can use the formula given below.

CLAT Scores = Total numbers of Correct options*1 - Total number of incorrect responses*0.25

For e.g.

If the number of correct answers is 130 and incorrect answers is 30 then the total marks will be calculated as-

Total CLAT Marks = (130*1) - (30*0.25)

Therefore; Total marks = 130 - 7.5 = 122.5

Is CLAT entrance exam is sufficient to get seat in LLB banglore university?

Alok Mishra 19th Nov, 2019

Hi,

If your query is related with doing 5-year BALLB program being offered at University Law College (ULC) I must say no. Because it has its own admission process. Basically, CLAT is an entrance exam for taking admission in NLUs. Eligibility Criteria for ULC's BALLB can be checked by following the link given: https://eng.bangaloreuniversity.ac.in/university-law-college/

I hope it helps!

clat ki study ke liye kitne month ka time sufficient hai...? please answer

Aman Raj Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Hello Bablu

Every other person has a different brain which works in different frequencies.

What I can study in 10 hours, maybe you can study in 2.

So this is really irrelevant.


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.

I score 56% in BA graduation degree and i am in general category. Now i am able to give CLAT exam and get admission in NLU?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

CLAT is for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes. For CLAT PG, you should possess a Bachelor's degree in Law. But because your highest qualification is BA and that is not a law degree, you are not eligible for CLAT PG. But now talking about CLAT UG, you need to have completed your 10+2 with a minimum aggregate of 45%. It is 45% for General Category and 40% for Reserved Categories. As there is no upper age limit for CLAT, you can appear for CLAT UG. Not based on your BA qualification but based on your 12th qualification.
