CLAT 2024 BA LLB Cutoff

CLAT 2024 is set to take place today i.e. December 3, 2023 via pen and paper method, across various test centres in India. Consortium of NLUs will release the CLAT 2024 BA LLB cutoff list only after the declaration of CLAT 2024 results. Candidates who will appear for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT 2024) can be admitted to the BA LLB course offered at the National Law Universities (NLUs) and other CLAT participating institutes. Before appearing for CLAT 2024, the aspirants should check out the cutoff scores for CLAT 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 for the BA LLB. By going through the CLAT cutoffs, candidates will get an idea of the score required to achieve in order to get into the top NLUs. There are other colleges as well that accept CLAT scores and students can also go through them.  

Here's essential information regarding the expected CLAT 2024 cut off:

  • For admission to the top 3 NLUs, the expected cut-off range is approximately 100 to 105.
  • If your goal is admission to the top 5 NLUs, the estimated CLAT Cut Off for 2024 may range from 95 to 100.
  • To secure admission to any NLU, it is recommended to target a score of 80 to 85 in the entrance exam.
  • Typically, students in the general category aim for scores between 95 and 100 for admission to a top NLU, while those in the SC/ ST category often target scores between 80 and 85.

Since all the National Law Universities have a fixed seat intake, it becomes crucial to generate a CLAT 2024 Cutoff list in order to offer admission to deserving candidates. This article contains all the information about the CLAT 2024 Cutoff for BA LLB. Interested students can scroll through the page to get an idea about their admission chances in NLUs.

Factors Affecting CLAT 2024 Cutoff

CLAT 2024 Cutoff is affected by numerous factors. Enlisted below are a few of them:

  • Candidates Appearing for the Exam: The total number of aspirants appearing for CLAT 2024 is one of the factors that determines the cutoff of CLAT 2024. The higher the number of candidates, the higher the competition for limited seats. It would result in a high cutoff. 
  • Reservation Category: The cutoffs for the general category candidates are higher than the cutoffs for the reserved category candidates.
  • Seat Intake: All the National Law Universities have a specific seat intake which means that thousands of candidates will have their eyes set on a finite number of seats. Colleges with higher seat intake may have a lower cutoff when compared to the ones with lesser seat intake.
  • Difficult Level of the Exam: The difficulty level of the exam can directly and hugely affect the CLAT 2024 cutoff. If the exam is very difficult, it may decrease the average score of the candidates which would decrease the CLAT cutoff.

Importance of CLAT 2024 Cutoff

The CLAT 2024 Cutoff has certain implications, which are as follows:

  • The CLAT cutoff gives law students an idea of what rank is required to gain admission.
  • Because the CLAT 2024 cutoff is based entirely on category and the programme, applicants must refer to the course for which they are applying.
  • Because the CLAT 2024 cutoff varies and is mostly determined by category and seat capacity, it is critical to keep these parameters in mind as well.
