The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 will be conducted by the Consortium of National Law Universities on 7 September 2020. It was expected to take place in May, however, the coronavirus pandemic has been delayed the examination many times. The CLAT took place last year on 26 May with an announcement of the results in June.
The law examination was planned for August recently and was postponed until further notice last week. The exam will now be conducted on 7 September, in compliance with the latest notification from the authorities.
CLAT is for undergraduates and postgraduates for entry into law courses. The NLUs have discussed the possibility of carrying out the test from their home in a proctor-based environment, but no final decision is yet made. The case had been put before the judge.
The All India Law Entrance Exam (AILET), LSAT India, ULSAT by UPES, and the BHU, which carries out UET, are also included in undergraduate-level entrance exams. The LSAT India has come online as a part of the pandemic.
CLAT is a two-hour test in which 150 questions must be answered by the applicants. All those reaching a minimum mark of 40 percent are deemed qualifying for admission into Undergraduate and Postgraduate Courses.
The pandemic moved the whole study season and the year. The new school session is also due to begin because classes for schools are being taken online. Entrance exams and admissions across channels are halted as a result of the pandemic.
