The CLAT 2022 cutoffs for LL.B and LL.M courses are given in the article below. Law aspirants must check the CLAT cutoff to get an idea of the exam and the difficulty level of the examination. 

CLAT Cutoff Round 1

CLAT is held every year for admissions to  undergraduate and postgraduate law courses offered by 22  NLUs across the country. The CLAT 2022 cutoff i.e., the opening and the closing ranks for General, OBC, SC and ST category students are now out. CLAT 2022 was conducted on June 19, 2022, from 2 pm to 4 pm. The Consortium of NLUs has released the first round of seat allotment for both LL.B and LL.M courses. 

CLAT Cut-Off is determined by factors like the number of seats available, number of candidates who appeared in the exam, cutoff of the previous year, number of qualifying candidates, and the difficulty level of the exam. Candidates who qualify for the cutoff will be considered for the further CLAT Admission Process.

Check the previous year's  CLAT Exam and Question Paper Analysis, Answer Key, and Solutions to get detailed reviews from experts on the law exam! Since 2020, there has been a significant  change in the CLAT Exam Pattern which has altered the cut-off trends.

NLU admissions are based on the candidate's CLAT rank and after the CLAT result announcement, students often look for the CLAT opening and closing ranks. Several other  law colleges in India also accept CLAT scores for shortlisting students for their courses.

The CLAT cutoffs are now released in five rounds for all the NLUs. According to the CLAT experts, the CLAT 2022 cutoff after the end of the 5th round will likely be similar to CLAT 2021 cutoff. 

The CLAT 2022 cutoff for round 1 counselling has been released for both integrated LL.B and LL.M courses for each participating NLU category-wise.
