CLAT 2020 to be held on May 10; NLU Consortium announces change in pattern
The next edition of the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) for admission to National Law Universities (NLUs) is expected to be held on May 10, 2020 (Sunday). A press release confirming the same has been issued by the NLU Consortium today.
The release further states that the official notification regarding CLAT 2020 will be released in the last week of December 2019. Online application forms for the exam will be made available on January 1, 2020.
Professor Balraj Chouhan, Vice-Chancellor of Dharmashastra National Law University (DNLU), Jabalpur will be the convenor for CLAT 2020.
Changes in exam pattern
During a meeting held at the Consortium's Permanent Secretariat in Bangalore, the authorities have decided that "Comprehension based questions would be asked from Quantitative Techniques, English, Current Affairs, Deductive Reasoning and Logical Reasoning."
The number of questions in the exam will now be around 120-150 instead of 200.
Talking about the development, President of the Consortium, Prof. Faizan Mustafa said, "asking students to answer 200 questions in 120 minutes is not right as it puts students under stress the idea is to get better students to National Law Universities who have competence in reading texts and demonstrate skills in inferential reasoning."
Students will be given two hours to complete the exam.
Section-wise questions distribution is given below:
|English (including Comprehension)||28-32 questions|
|GK and Current Affairs||35-39 questions|
|Elementary Mathematics||13-17 questions|
|Legal Aptitude||35-39 questions|
|Logical Reasoning||28-32 questions|
