NEW DELHI: The Consortium of National Law Universities, the body that conducts CLAT has released the schedule for post exam. As has been directed by the Supreme Court, the entire process of NLU admissions needs to be completed by mid-October. The exam will take place on September 28 while the merit list will be out on October 5. The counseling for CLAT 2020 admissions will take place from October 9 to October 15.
Meanwhile, candidates will be provided with a provisional answer key on September 28 evening and the objections can be raised against the provisional answer key until September 20, 12:00 AM. The final answer key will then be published on October 3.
Once the result is declared by the consortium on October 5, candidates can download the result and by logging onto the official website for CLAT. Having declared the results, those candidates who are shortlisted will have to pay a fee of Rs 50,000, and they will start from October 9. These sessions are likely to take place in a minimum of three rounds and merit lists may be published after every round. Thereby, by October 15, the CLAT admission process is likely to wrap up and the session is likely to kickstart soon.
