Hope you are doing well. As per your query the expected marks to get into an NLU or the cutoff varies each year depending on the difficulty level of the question paper. You should aim to score between 100 - 120 to get into the top NLUs. A score of 80-100 is also very good. However you should definitely score above 50 to get chance for admission in an NLU through CLAT. Please click on the link below for more recent information and updates. Hope you find this helpful.
