However, candidates must pay the confirmation fee within the stipulated time to be considered for admission.

Hii There,

Yes, after completing a B.Sc. degree from any recognized university, you are eligible to apply for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) for admission to various National Law Universities (NLUs) in India for their integrated LLB programs. You can also pursue a traditional LLB program (3-year) from any university that offers it, provided you meet their specific eligibility criteria. It's important to check the individual university's or college's eligibility requirements for their LLB program.

I hope this answers your question.


Hello aspirant,

Hope you are doing great.

As per your question, NO you are not eligible to give CLAT exam this year. Because the eligibility criteria for the CLAT exam provides that, you need to complete your 12th grade and during the filling of application form for the CLAT, you need to put your marks, and without completing 12th you cannot get your marks.

Hope this helps!


you would likely give the CLAT examination in 2025. The CLAT examination is typically taken by students in their final year of high school or after completing high school, depending on the specific requirements of the universities or colleges they are applying to. Since you will be in class 12th in 2025, you would most likely take the CLAT exam in that year for admission to undergraduate law programs starting in the academic year 2026. However, it is essential to verify the specific eligibility criteria and exam dates for the CLAT exam in 2025 by checking the official CLAT website or contacting the conducting authority.

Hope this helps you,

Thank you
