CLAT 2023 Cutoff

CLAT 2023 Cutoff is released after the CLAT Result Declaration and the CLAT 2023 Counselling and CLAT 2023 Seat Allotment rounds are held separately for 5-year integrated LLB and Master of Law - LLM. The cutoff for CLAT 2023 is usually released in 5 rounds.

The cutoff is category-specific and is available for all CLAT 2023 Participating Colleges. All 22 National Law Universities (NLUs) offer 5-year LLB and 19 participating NLUs offer LLM. Provided below is the CLAT cutoff for all the previous years:

CLAT Round 1 Cutoff 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 - Check Opening and Closing Ranks for General, OBC, SC, ST

CLAT Round 2 Cutoff 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 - Check Opening and Closing Ranks for General, OBC, SC, ST

CLAT Round 3 Cutoff 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 - Check Opening and Closing Ranks for General, OBC, SC, ST

The cutoff scores signify the CLAT score or CLAT rank at which law aspirants are offered admission in different colleges accepting CLAT scores/ ranks for admission. Since CLAT counselling may include 5 seat allotment rounds this year, there will be a cutoff for each round. The CLAT cutoff will be the last rank for which admission is offered in that round. If a candidate scores below that, he/ she will not get admission. Scroll through the page to find the expected CLAT Cutoff 2023 and also the CLAT previous year's cutoff.
