CLAT amidst Covid

The Consortium of National Law Universities (CNLU) conducted the Common Law Admission Test or CLAT 2020 on 28th September 2020 from 2pm to 4pm. It was a computer based examination and candidates were supposed to report one hour prior.

The CLAT 2020 result will be announced on October 5. CLAT 2020 cutoff will be released by the NLU Consortium from October 9 onwards. For undergraduate or postgraduate courses, the CLAT cut off is the last rank for which the CLAT admission is offered.

The Supreme Court on Monday granted a special permission to two COVID-19 patient to take the CLAT exam. The patient sat for the exam in an isolated room.

Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah clarified that this order was only limited to the applicant and had no bearing on any other student. Though Advocate Sumit Chander urged the Court to pass similar orders for other similarly placed students, it refused to pass any such blanket order.
The permission granted by SC is only for these two coronavirus patients on certain special ground and no other such COVID positive patients were allowed to take exam. The patient will have to show courts approval before taking the exam.

Candidates took all necessary precautions like social distancing, sanitization and wearing masks during the exam.
