  • The number of candidates appearing for the examination

  • Difficulty level of the question paper

  • Total number of seats available for admission

  • Reserved seats (if applicable)

  • Past years cutoff trends

Now lets see how these factors are influencing the cutoff for CLAT 2019.

Every year about 50,000 students write the CLAT examination. This year they will be competing for approximately 2300 seats offered by 21 NLUs, which gives us a ratio of 22:1. When 22 candidates fight for a single seat, the difficulty level obviously increases. Keeping this in mind let us move forward and see the cutoff trends for the past four years.
