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.

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. Some universities are even better than many NLUs in terms of their academic curriculum and other facilities. Symbiosis Law School, Pune is one such example which is ranked as the 7th best law college of India by NIRF 2019 ranking of MHRD. There are many state-level entrance exams and also, many law colleges conduct their own entrance exam separately. One can consider appearing in these exams and get a seat in a law college.

CLAT is for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes. For CLAT PG, you should possess a Bachelor's degree in Law. But because your highest qualification is BA and that is not a law degree, you are not eligible for CLAT PG. But now talking about CLAT UG, you need to have completed your 10+2 with a minimum aggregate of 45%. It is 45% for General Category and 40% for Reserved Categories.
