CLAT 2017 – Rank Based Cutoff Predictions

Once the CLAT-2017 score cards are released, the next question lingering in the minds of students is ‘Which NLU will I get into?’ or ‘Will I make it to any of the NLUs?’

Here is our prediction of the cutoffs based on the pattern over the last few years. The major factor that determines the cutoffs would be the order of preference that students opt during the CLAT application process. The order is more or less consistent over the years, so the cutoffs are predicted with confidence.

Also remember that CLAT comes out with four merit lists. After each list, students are given time to pay the fees and the vacant seats are then allotted to other students. Many students opt for Symbiosis, NLU Delhi or other private colleges instead of joining an NLU which is not in their first 5-6 preferences. So these seats fall vacant.

While you are waiting for the first list to be released on 5th June, you could peruse this list to get a fair idea of where you are likely to land in, and plan accordingly.

After  completing the CLAT counselling process , if there are any vacant seats, students can approach the respective NLUs. They will allot the seats based on the ranks outside the CLAT counselling process.
