Eligibilty Criteria

CLAT UG and CLAT PG eligibility requirements have been established by the Consortium of NLUs. CLAT 2022 qualifying standards include academic and age requirements, which are detailed below.

Eligibility requirements for qualifying examination candidates

Candidates who are currently enrolled in a qualifying examination (Class 12 for CLAT UG and LLB final year for CLAT LLM) are also eligible to take the exam. During CLAT counselling and seat allocation, they must present proof of passing the qualifying examination (mark sheet/certificate/provisional certificate). Regardless of CLAT scores, if a candidate fails to present documents proving his or her qualifications, he or she will be considered ineligible for admission.

Important considerations for CLAT 2022 eligibility requirements

  • Before completing the application, candidates must validate their eligibility.
  • If an applicant fails to meet the CLAT eligibility criteria for 2022, he or she may be disqualified at any point during the application process.
  • The candidate's information provided on the CLAT 2022 application form will be verified throughout the document verification procedure, which is an important element of the counselling process.
  • Application procedure: Meeting the CLAT exam eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission. CLAT 2022 merit rank will be used to determine admission or seat allocation.
Exam Pattern

The CLAT consortium has changed the exam pattern by removing the descriptive component from CLAT PG, leaving just MCQs on the postgraduate examination. MCQs will remain in the undergraduate paper. The question paper will comprise comprehension passages with 4-5 questions after each passage.


Candidates who want to take CLAT 2022 should be familiar with the exam's syllabus and structure. The CLAT 2022 syllabus is divided into five components, as shown below.

  • Current events and general knowledge
  • Understanding of English
  • Legal knowledge and ability
  • Reasoning logically
  • Quantitative skills

The CLAT paper will feature comprehension questions under each section, with 4-5 multiple choice questions after each paragraph. CLAT 2022 will have a total of 150 questions, with applicants having two hours to answer all of them. CLAT question papers included 29 comprehension passages last year, making it a lengthy and time-consuming test. Check previous year's questions for a better understanding.

CLAT 2022 Syllabus

  • Legal arguments
  • Reasoning logically
  • Quantitative methods

Exam Guidelines for CLAT 2022

According to the requirements, the candidate must arrive at the CLAT 2022 exam center at least an hour before the exam begins. Furthermore, no applicant will be allowed to enter the CLAT exam after 15 minutes have passed. A printout of the admit card, as well as valid and original picture ID evidence, is required to take the test.

CLAT 2022 Solution Key

CLAT 2022 provisional answer key will be made available online. The candidate can compute the number of questions they answered correctly by reviewing the keys provided in the provisional CLAT answer key. The candidate will be able to calculate their likely score, and hence their chances of admission, using the CLAT official grading scheme (use the previous year's cutoff data for this reason). Any candidate who has concerns about one or more of the key(s) may raise an objection. Authorities will issue the final answer key for the CLAT exam 2022 after evaluating all complaints. The keys provided in the final CLAT answer key are the final authority or proper solutions to the exam's questions.

The Consortium will announce the CLAT 2022 results online a few days after the answer key is released. By checking in with their registration/application number and date of birth, candidates can access CLAT result 2022. The exam result will include vital information such as sectional and overall grades, as well as open and category (if applicable) rank.

  • On the screen, the CLAT result 2022 would be presented.

Cutoff for CLAT 2022

All participating NLUs will release the CLAT test 2022 cut off independently. The CLAT 2022 Cutoff will be the minimal score (or lowest rank) required for admission to an NLU. The number of applications received for admission, the sanctioned seat intake, the performance of students in the entrance exam, and other factors will all influence the CLAT cutoff in 2022.


Candidates who pass the computer-based, online, centre-based exam are invited to participate in CLAT counselling, which is performed entirely online. All eligible candidates are provided CLAT 2022 counselling call letters in an online format in order to appear in CLAT 2022 counselling.
For the counselling procedure, the consortium invites candidates equal to FIVE times the seat intake in each category. Eligible candidates must register for counselling and pay a cost of Rs. 30,000 (Rs 20,000 for reserved category candidates) to select/edit NLU preferences and pay the counselling fee.
