CLAT Cut-Off 2018

CLAT 2018 Cut-Off – CLAT or the Common Law Admission Test is a national level law examination conducted on a rotational basis by the 18 National Law Universities. CLAT 2018 will be conducted by the National University for Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) Kochi on May 13, 2018. The CLAT application forms will be released in December 2017/January 2018.

CLAT 2018 Cut-Off will be the minimum score required by a candidate to qualify the exam and get shortlisted for further selection rounds. The cut-off for CLAT will be different for each counselling round. Also, the ranks would vary with the category of candidates. Seeing the trend in the last three years, the CLAT cut-off has increased for most National Law Universities (NLUs). Each NLU will release their own cut-off for CLAT and the same will be released before each counselling round begins. There will be four counselling sessions in total. The CLAT result is expected to be released in the third week of May 2018 and the CLAT cut-off 2018 will be released soon after that.
