Viraj Ananth of Bengaluru is a swimmer and playing football is a stress-buster for him. The year 2016 has been extraordinary for Viraj, for he has topped the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) after obtaining 174.5 marks.

The 18-year-old, who has also set up a start-up called Intermind Global with his friends, says, “It was a dream come true. I’m just delighted. I was expecting good marks but never thought I would top in CLAT.”

The announcement of CLAT 2016 results was scheduled for Monday (23rd May, 2016) but the statement of marks for candidates who had taken the exam was published a day earlier.

The results of CLAT 2016 were therefore declared on Sunday (22nd May, 2016).

CLAT is a national-level exam for admission to under-graduate and post-graduate law degree programmes (LLB and LLM).

Delhi’s Vansh Aggarwal, who scored 172.75 marks and came second, says he can’t wait to join National Law School of India University, Bangalore (NLSIU).

This year, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab conducted the test.

For the UG law entrance test, a total of 39,495 candidates registered and 37,175 took the exam.

For the PG law entrance exam, 5,580 students registered and 5,042 appeared for the test.

In all, 42,217 candidates sat for the competitive exam.

Last year, Aakash Jain from Madhya Pradesh had topped the CLAT examination with 141.25 marks.
