In a repetition of last year’s events, the exams of two major law entrances have been announced to be conducted on the same date. CLAT 2015, the most sought after law entrance exam is scheduled for May 10, which clashes with another major law entrance exam, Aligarh Muslim University Law Entrance Exam .

The clash of the law entrance exam dates of CLAT 2015 and AMU, which has left several aspirants confused reflects the inconsideration of the conducting bodies while setting the dates for the most important law entrance exams in the country.

While a majority of the aspirants are unsure of their next step, some are demanding that the date of one of the two exams should be rescheduled. 

An aspirant from Aligarh, Yunus says, “I will rather go for AMU as I belong here. Also, CLAT will be conducted in the online mode and I am a bit unsure about CLAT.”

Another aspirant from Delhi, Prashant Saini says, “I belong to Aligarh but I am still appearing for CLAT 2015 as it has 16 NLUs participating and I could have a chance at grabbing an NLU seat. But I don’t want to miss AMU either. I am just hoping that the date for one of the exam is changed.”


Even last year AMU had rescheduled its exam date as it clashed with CLAT. Read here the full story. The same situation has been repeated this year too.


Aligarh Muslim University had issued the notification for exam date prior to CLAT 2015 Committee. AMU Controller of Examinations, Prof. Javaid Akhtar had issued a notification, vide dated, December 5, 2014 declaring AMU BA LLB Entrance Exam to be on May 10, 2015. CLAT 2015 Committee comprising of 32 members have announced Online CLAT 2015 on December 25, 2014.


We bring you the screen-shots of notification as provided by the respective examination bodies on the said date –

AMU BA LLB 2015 Notification -

CLAT 2015 Notification -



The question that arises here is that were examination authorizes aware of the exam dates of other institutions and if so why did they schedule the exam on same date?

Last year, in an interaction with Careers360, CLAT Convener from GNLU had said that the conducting body had announced the exam date in advance to other exam dates. However, this year, AMU has announced the date before CLAT, which leaves the question of who will reschedule the exam date this year unanswered. 

Careers360 is in talk with the examination authorities and will keep you updated on the recent changes.

if two student get same score blat exam then how there rank are decided then?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020

Hello Ayushman,

Hope you are doing well.

Candidates who have secured higher marks in the BHU Law entrance examination will be ranked higher. However, candidates having a postgraduate degree in a discipline course will be ranked on the basis of their respective marks in the graduation degree. In case candidates have similar marks in graduation and in the qualifying examination then preference will be given to the candidate who has secured more marks in the relevant subject.

In case if still, the tie doesn’t break, candidates who secure higher marks in Mathematics will be preferred. If still tie continues, then higher marks secured by the student at 10+2 qualifying examination will be given preference. Moreover, students who have Mathematics as a subject will be preferred over the other one.

If a tie in marks still continues amongst the candidates, then the elder one will be taken into consideration.

Good luck
