The current academic session has seen exam calendars go for a toss; thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic situation. At the time of writing this article, many entrance exams have been delayed, including popular ones like CLAT and AILET. There are a few exceptions like KLEE, which has managed to conduct both its exams for 3-year and 5-year LLB admission. But outside of it, there is little solace as students and parents wait with bated breath to see what might happen next.
The situation is such that many upcoming law entrance examinations are jeopardized, especially the centre-based ones. That may be a reason why exams like AILET and LSAT India have moved to remote-proctored mode to bypass the threat posed by the pandemic.
In this article, we take a look at upcoming law entrance exams and check their status.
The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 entrance exam will be conducted on August 22 in computer-based, online, centre-based mode. Previously, the exam was administered in pen-and-paper mode but has since moved to online mode as a precaution against COVID-19 pandemic.
The exam will be held at 203 test locations, up from the 67 locations announced earlier for the pen-and-paper exam.
The CLAT question paper for the UG programme will consist of 150 multiple-choice questions (MCQs), whereas for the PG programme there will be 120 MCQs. Each question will carry 1 mark, while for an incorrect attempt 0.25 mark will be deducted. Note that the Descriptive Section in CLAT 2020 for the LLM programme has been dropped.
