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.

which books to prefer for reading comprehension and information deduction for clat after seeing the change in clat pattern 2020??

Sanjanaleekha 21st Nov, 2019

Hi there,

According to today's press release by NLU Consortium pattern for CLAT 2020 has been changed and now there will be 120-150 questions rather than 200 and questions from deductive reasoning and english will be  comprehension based questions, this is change from the earlier pattern of questions. Deductive reasoning is basically logical deductions made from a statement in my opinion A modern approach to logical reasoning by R.S Aggarwal cover questions on deductive reasoning which are comprehension based so you can refer this book for your deductive reasoning questions. Now coming to English, Wren and Martin and Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis will help you in this section
