After alleged discrepancies in CLAT 2015 examination and evaluation process, CLAT Committee is in dock yet again. This time, CLAT takers are alleging discrepancies in the seat allotment process. As the CLAT officials announced first round of seat allotment on June 16, some of the test-takers have found seat allocated to them differing from what they were eligible for. Also, a few students could not find an upgrade option after the first round of seat allotment.

For example, Careers360 has received a complaint from a candidate who had been allotted NLIU Bhopal in the first list. She, however, had locked her choices - Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Jodhpur, Bhopal, Lucknow, Raipur and so on. Now, she claims that CLAT 2015 Committee has mailed her about an inadvertent error. Consequently, after rectifying the error, she has been allotted RMLNLU as it was the next NLU of her locked choice. Furthermore, the committee gave her the option of withdrawing from the admission process but there was no option available to ‘upgrade’. 

The CLAT committee has, however, claimed that there was some inadvertent error in fist indicative allotment and the same was rectified with change in option for a few candidates. The RMLNLU, the conducting body for CLAT, also communicated the same to the affected candidates.

“In the first indicative allotment list due to some inadvertent error, candidates have been allotted seat in NLIU Bhopal. Subsequently, the error was rectified and candidates’ locked choices had been changed. Consequent upon this, candidates have been allotted the University of their next below choice, as per the preference given by them,” read its communication to the affected candidates.

In the first round of seat allotment, over 1600 candidates were allotted seats at different National Law Universities (NLUs). We publish here one of the many complaints that Careers360 has received since the first round allotment was announced.

CLAT Committee is already facing Court notices related to alleged discrepancies in the question paper of CLAT 2015.

A revised CLAT Result was announced on June 6 for over 39772 candidates who had appeared for the national level law entrance exam conducted by Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University (RMLNLU). CLAT 2015 is the basis for admission to 2164 seats of BA LLB across 16 NLUs in India.

If your query is related with doing 5-year BALLB program being offered at University Law College (ULC) I must say no. Because it has its own admission process. Basically, CLAT is an entrance exam for taking admission in NLUs. Eligibility Criteria for ULC's BALLB can be checked by following the link given:

clat ki study ke liye kitne month ka time sufficient hai...? please answer

Hello Bablu

Every other person has a different brain which works in different frequencies.

What I can study in 10 hours, maybe you can study in 2.

So this is really irrelevant.

But still to answer your question, according to some statistics, a good amount of 4–5 hours a day can help you get into a tier 1 college, but those hours should be with complete dedication and for 5-6 months.
