The CLAT cutoff usually depends on the following factors:
The total number of applicants
The performance of candidates in CLAT exam
Number of sanctioned seats
The category of the candidate
If any of these parameters change the cutoff would also change. For example, if the seat intake is increased, the cutoff score (or rank) would go down and vice versa.
Now let’s take a look at how how many marks a candidate needs to score a particular rank by referring to the table below:
Number of students
150 - 200
1 - 2
130 - 150
3 - 148
110 - 130
149 - 1211
90 - 110
1212 - 4609
70 - 90
4610 - 11683
50 - 70
11684 - 22834
30 - 50
22825 - 34649
1 - 30
34650 - 41468
If you score in the 150-200, you most probably can take admission in any law college you choose that accept CLAT scores.
A score in the 130-150 range, you are still within reach of the top NLUs. But don’t bet against it, as your category will also have a role to play, especially if you want to get into any of the top 3 NLUs.
If you fall in the 90-110 marks bracket, you chances of a top NLU may get slimmer. But if you are from a reserved category, you have better chances.
If the candidate scores 70 - 90 marks, chances of admission get dimmer as such candidates will be ranked around 4610 - 11683. Remember there are only around 2500 undergraduate seats in NLUs. Such candidates can however apply to private colleges that accept CLAT scores.
Candidates with scores below 50 marks range are effectively out of the NLU admission process, give or take a few exceptions. Also, few chances that exist are only for reserved categories.
The takeaway then is general category candidates must target a score of 110 and above to have any chance of admission.
Please note that the NLU Consortium has made key changes to CLAT 2020 exam pattern including reduction in the number of questions for the UG course. Now the question paper will include 150 MCQs, instead of 200 that were asked earlier. Also, comprehension-based questions will be asked from each section.
As the number of questions decreases, the total marks for CLAT 2020 might also decrease.
And if the total marks is lowered, the cutoff would come down naturally.
Consequently, the scores given in the table (marks vs score) has to be adjusted.
The college-wise cutoff data for all the participating NLUs have been given below so that candidates knows the rank they need to get to have a fair chance of admission.
