CLAT Cutoff 2020 Vs 2019

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is the most popular law entrance exam in India with over 70,000 test-takers every year. CLAT is accepted by the 22 National Law Universities (NLUs) and several other law colleges in India for admission to UG and PG level law programmes

Now that the result of CLAT is out, all participating institutes will release their cutoff scores for admission to various courses. This year, the NLUs will have five rounds of seat allotment instead of three and the CLAT cutoff for each round and each college is different. Additionally, separate cutoff lists are generated by every institute for each category.

In this article, we have provided a comparison between the cutoff scores of CLAT 2020 and CLAT 2019. This will be quite helpful for candidates who are seeking admission thrrough CLAT 2021. Read further to know the details of CLAT 2020 vs CLAT 2019 cutoff.

What is a Good Score in CLAT 2021?

Differences Between CLAT 2020 and CLAT 2019

The conducting body of CLAT, the Consortium of NLUs, had revised the exam pattern of CLAT in November 2019. Hence, the exam pattern of CLAT 2019 was different from that of CLAT 2020 onwards. The modification in the CLAT exam pattern directly affected the cutoff scores as well. Therefore, considering the trends of CLAT 2019 cutoff will not be helpful while making an estimate of CLAT 2021 cutoff scores. 

The major changes in CLAT exam pattern from 2020 onwards have been listed below.

  • The total number of questions was reduced from 200 to 150.
  • Instead of statement-based questions, the exam comprised questions based on passages.
  • The Elementary Mathematics section was renamed to Quantitative Techniques and sets were introduced in it.
  • In the Legal Aptitude section, questions were asked in which candidates had to use their legal acumen while going through the information given instead of applying legal knowledge.
  • Earlier, just one comprehension was asked in the section of English language. However, this was changed and all the questions in this section are now passage-based, similar to the other sections of CLAT.
  • Fewer questions were asked on topics that needed to be memorised.
  • The duration of the exam remained unchanged and candidates are given 2 hours to complete the paper.

The table given below will explain the division of the number of questions in CLAT 2019 and CLAT 2020.
