Following are some factors upon which NLU cutoff 2020 depends:

  • Seats being offered by NLUs

  • Previous year’s cutoff data

  • Difficulty level of CLAT examination

  • Performance of applicants in the exam

How is the NLU cutoff 2020 determined?

NLU cutoff 2020 is being calculated by the examination committee. Factor like choice of NLUs and UG/PG programmes could also affect NLU 2020 cutoff.

Given below is an explanation of scenario of how selection of NLUs and UG/PG courses play an important role in affecting the NLU cutoff 2020.

For instance, NLU NALSAR is likely to get more number of applications than a lesser NLU; also mostly higher ranked candidates will apply. This will automatically push up the admission cutoff of NALSAR. Alternately however, if some other NLU receives more number of applications (especially from higher ranked candidates) than NALSAR, that institute may end up having a higher cutoff than NALSAR.

kya clat exam me govt. ne kuch changes kiye hain. aur agar changes kiye hain to kya kya? please answer

Rehan Alam Student Expert 22nd Nov, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

Following are some changes in CLAT exam:

  1. The number of questions is reduced from 200 to 120-150.
  2. The exam will remain off-line and for two hours.
  3. Comprehension based questions will be asked from quantitative techniques, English, current affairs, deductive reasoning and logical reasoning.

The idea is to get better students to national law universities who have competence in reading texts and demonstrate skills in inferential reasoning.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

Sanjanaleekha 21st Nov, 2019

Hi there,

According to today's press release by NLU Consortium pattern for CLAT 2020 has been changed and now there will be 120-150 questions rather than 200 and questions from deductive reasoning and english will be  comprehension based questions, this is change from the earlier pattern of questions. Deductive reasoning is basically logical deductions made from a statement in my opinion A modern approach to logical reasoning by R.S Aggarwal cover questions on deductive reasoning which are comprehension based so you can refer this book for your deductive reasoning questions. Now coming to English, Wren and Martin and Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis will help you in this section
