As per your question, NO you are not eligible to give CLAT exam this year.

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,
