What if I don't get an NLU through CLAT 2020 - Getting admission in a National Law University (NLU) is a dream for many CLAT 2020 aspirants, but what if someone doesn’t get admission in an NLU through CLAT?. Should we consider it an ultimate failure or just a part and parcel of the game? Summer Redstone rightly said, ‘Success is not built on success, it is built on failure, frustration and sometimes on catastrophe’. Failure in CLAT does not mean one cannot become a successful law professional. Given that the CLAT 2020 exam is a highly competitive and lakhs of students prepare themselves for this, so, it is not possible that everyone makes a way to NLU. Ultimately what matters is that law aspirants become successful in their respective law profile. There are many law colleges that accept CLAT scores for admissions and some also conduct their own entrance exams for LLB and LLM programmes. So, here we will discuss what other options the CLAT 2020 aspirants would have if they don’t get an NLU through CLAT 2020.

What other options a Law aspirant have?

It is said, ‘If plan ‘A’ doesn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters, so stay cool’. if you are looking for a law college, there are many entrance exams conducted by law colleges to test your knowledge and hunger, and if you are already preparing for the toughest law exam then there is no harm in looking for other law entrance exams.

sir if i got bck in last semester in llb then i am eligible for clat exam or not

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 22nd Feb, 2020
Hello.
It is not mentioned anywhere that you can be eligible for CLAT exam with having backlog in LLB if you are asking for CLAT PG for 1 year LLM course, then as it is mentioned that to be eligible you need to have minimum 50% in graduation but this percent should be without backlog in any subject you will have to clear that backlog and then you can fill the application form of CLAT.
Best of luck.
