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

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 22nd Feb, 2020
Hello.
It is not mentioned anywhere that you can be eligible for CLAT exam with having backlog in LLB if you are asking for CLAT PG for 1 year LLM course, then as it is mentioned that to be eligible you need to have minimum 50% in graduation but this percent should be without backlog in any subject you will have to clear that backlog and then you can fill the application form of CLAT.
Best of luck.
