I am appearing for 12 this year , can i apply for CLAt this year?

ayush mishra 23rd Jan, 2020

Yes, you can surely apply for the Common Law Admission Test while appearing for the board exams of class 12 for admission to UG courses. The eligibility criteria for CLAT states that the candidates who have passed their class12th Board Examination or The Senior Secondary School Examination can apply for the exam. In addition to it, the aspirants have to secure a minimum of 45% marks in the qualifying exam for General Category and for SC and ST candidates, they need to secure 40% marks in qualifying exam. However, not only the students who have passed their class 12 examination can apply but also the candidates who are appearing in their qualifying exam can appear. In the case of admission to UG courses, this qualifying exam refers to Class 12 examination and hence you have all the rights to appear for it and there is no problem in applying for the exam but you also have to ensure that you fulfill the educational (and also other) eligibility criteria for the exam.

How many people fill CLAT exam per year

ayush mishra 22nd Jan, 2020

Hey Vijay!

The actual number of applicants for the Common Law Admission Test differ every year and is usually experiencing a 8-10 % increase every year. Although the official records have many caveats attached to it but previous three year participants statistics is as follows:-

CLAT 2017:- 50,676

CLAT 2018:- close to 55000

CLAT 2019:- 60,000 approximately

So, approximately 55000 to 60000 students apply for the Clat examination every year. This number is the sum of total applicants for UG courses and the PG course. So, if you want to know about the UG course, approximately 50,000 people fill the exam every year and this year too you can expect the same trend.

However, it has to be said that many of those applicants fill the exam just to have an experience of a competitive examination after class 12 and hence if you are serious enough and have prepared well for the exam then your real competition is with probably 15000- 20000 people. Now, that is not any small number to compete against but given the stature of the examination, you will have to face such competition in order to fetch a seat in the top NLUs.

Good luck!
