For the CLAT (LLM)PG , minimum requirement is LLB with 55%. This 55% is the aggregate of all 3 /5 years course or 55% in last year will do ?

Mahima Student Expert 22nd Aug, 2019
As per the eligibility criteria laid out for admission in the course of LLM through CLAT PG you need to score a minimum aggregate of 55% in your 3 year LLB degree or 5 year integrated law course from an institute recognised by the Bar council of India. This means that your aggregate for this is calculated considering your marks in all the total 3/5 years which should be more than 55%. Only the last year's/ semesters aggregate is NOT considered. Your overall aggregate for all 5 or 3 years will be.
Best of luck

Clat PG Score card is valid for one year, Does it means I can take admission in that particular year or Next year ,Please clarify

Mahima Student Expert 17th Aug, 2019
Hey Vaibhav.
Your scores in CLAT PG will be valid for 1 year only. Which means it you take CLAT in 2019 then you can take admission using this score in the session beginning in 2019 only. In the next session of 2020 these scores will not be accepted, then admissions will be based on scores of 2020 only. So with 2019 scores you can appear in CLAT counselling of 2019 for admission in NLUs however it is scheduled. And other Private colleges that would accept those ranks for admission in that particular year only. These scores will not be valid for admision in 2020.
Best of luck
