Further, the General Knowledge section of 50 questions had as many as 27 questions copied from question bank of a particular website.

The experts have claimed that majority of errors pointed to the CLAT officials after the release of question paper has been ignored. “We had pointed errors in about 30 questions, but CLAT officials have ignored most of the errors,” said a CLAT coaching expert.

Experts and candidates are also demanding re-testing of CLAT 2015.

What CLAT officials say?

With the new revelation, experts and students have blamed RMLNLU officials for their “casual approach towards CLAT exam process”. The CLAT 2015 officials, however, said that collecting questions from open knowledge sources is not wrong and it should not be related to the performance of students in CLAT 2015 paper.


“There is nothing wrong in collecting the questions from different sources. Also, this is no way related to the performance of CLAT takers,” Dr J. D. Gangwar, CLAT 2015 Convener told Careers360.  He also set aside any possibility of re-testing of CLAT.


Dr. Gangwar added that the question paper had been set by subject experts entrusted by CLAT Committee and the issue of copying of questions will be discussed internally by the CLAT Committee.
