What is a good score in CLAT 2021?
What is a good score in CLAT 2021 - Being a highly competitive exam, clearing CLAT, that too with a good rank requires a good score in the examination. But, then the question emerges; what is a good score in CLAT 2021? To answer this question, we will need an analysis of CLAT marks vs rank for top national law universities. There has to be a score band within which all scores can be termed as good scores in CLAT. If a candidate scores well in CLAT 2021 and consequently gets a rank under 100, chances are high that he/she may end up securing a seat in India’s top NLUs; NLSIU Bangalore or in NALSAR Hyderabad. Careers360 has done an analysis of CLAT scores of the previous year and other influencing factors to predict what can be termed as a good score in CLAT 2021. Read the complete article to learn more about the good score in CLAT 2021, marks and rank analysis and other important details.
What defines a good score in CLAT?
The ultimate goal of every candidate will be to secure a seat in top national law universities. So, a good score will be anything that leads to your goal. For example, if you are from a general category without any reservation, and targeting the National Law School of India University, you will need to score as much as possible.
For the matter of fact, last year, the CLAT UG topper scored 127.25 and got a seat in NLSIU Bangalore. But, at the same time, someone who got 97 ranks with a CLAT score of 92.75 also got the same institute. So, for general category students, we can say any score above 92.75 can be termed as a good score in CLAT if he/she is aiming for NLSIU Bangalore. This can be applied to all national law universities. And, we can get a clearer picture of a CLAT good score by looking at the cut off marks and ranks of the candidates getting into the top national law universities.
CLAT Cut off Analysis of NIRF Ranked National Law Universities
The Consortium releases the cut off for all national law universities. The CLAT cut off is released in the form of rank. If we add the corresponding marks for each rank, we can get an analysis of CLAT score and rank. The last rank along with corresponding marks would tell about the good score that one should target to get a seat in a particular national law university. Refer to the table given below for details on last rank and marks for top NIRF ranked national law universities.

What is a good score in CLAT 2021 - Key Takeaways
If you are aiming to get a seat in NLSIU Bangalore, nothing is enough. You need to score at least 100 out of 150 to get a chance for admission. However, a relatively easy CLAT paper than that of last year may push the cut off higher. For the matter of fact, most of the candidates who get a rank under 100 give their first preference to NLSIU Bangalore which offers around 92 seats for general category candidates.
One has to secure a rank under 470 (approx) to ensure a seat in top 5 NLUs. Converting 460 ranks in marks means the candidate has to score more than 83 marks out of 150.
Not all national law universities are considered good. One should check the CLAT cut off of top 10 NLUs to develop a clear understanding.
Category reservation plays a crucial role in deciding seat allotment. Those getting benefits of category reservation will be at a relative advantage. For example - a general category candidate (without any horizontal reservation) had to score at least 92.75 marks (CLAT UG rank - 97) to get a seat in NLSIU Bangalore. Whereas, SC candidates could get admission in the same institute with 71.75 marks (CLAT UG rank - 1978).
CLAT Marks Vs Rank
Candidates must also check the calculation of CLAT ranks and marks. By looking at the CLAT marks and rank analysis of last year, candidates may get an idea about the rank that can be achieved by getting a particular score. For example, if we look at the last year’s data, one has to score anything above 125 in CLAT PG to get an AIR rank under 5. Refer to the analysis of CLAT marks and ranks given below.
