Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 22nd Feb, 2020
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.

Shareef 23rd Feb, 2020



You are eligible for CLAT PG because you will be considered as final year student. But you have to pass in all subjects atleast by the time of counselling. You should have all your documents by the time of counselling. Or else your admission will be cancelled.
