Pencil sharpened at the ready, set and go.Pencil sharpened at the ready, set and go.The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) scores for 2012 were released today and the top scorer secured 159 marks out of a total 200 in the exam. The lowest score among the top 63 ranks was 145, with only two candidates entitled to the “OBC” quota sitting among the top 63.

Anhad Singh Milhani from the general category secured the highest marks.

The topper from the “OBC” category sat at the eleventh overall rank with a score of 150, while the second highest “OBC” category scorer was at rank 25 with 148 marks.

The next 80 ranks closed at a score of 140, with 27 candidates sitting at 141 marks and 21 candidates tying at 142 marks.

There were 29 candidates below rank 140 and tied at 140 marks and 37 candidates were tied at 139 marks up to rank 203. These 63 general category candidates made the third highest scoring batch.

Last year NLSIU Bangalore – the most preferred law school among CLAT 2011 takers, admitted 58 students from the general category. The lowest scorer among these secured 147 marks out of 200, and rank 64.

If the law school’s general category intake remains 58 this year as well and all the top 58 scorers opt for it, then Shubhaang Sinha at rank 60, with 145 total marks will be the last person making it to Bangalore.

Nalsar Hyderabad – the second most preferred law school last year opened 44 places to the general category, admitting up to rank 117 with a total score of 142.

NUJS Kolkata – the last of the top three preferences last year, admitted 83 general category candidates, going up to rank 196 and a score of 137.

Kian and Prachi - please try and clean up the writing style in the article. There is a mix-up of tenses; and the meaning gets lost in the jumble of words. As this article presently stands, it is very difficult to understand what is meant. I know in part it is the problem of trying to convey numbers in words - but I'm sure you guys can do a much better job. I'm sorry if this comes across as a bit brash, but it is in your interest that I say this. I'm a huge fan and regular reader of LI, so please accept this comment in the spirit with which it is made. Thank you.

Dear NALSARite

Thank you for your feedback.

Your friendly criticism is fair enough in this case, and we have changed the structure so that it reads clearer.

We regret the confusion and will pay more attention to our structuring and clarity in the future, though sometimes time constraints take a toll on the writing.

Best wishes,
Prachi

The CLAT results for 2012 are out. Has anyone noted that the students who have given their preferred choice of universities during application have not been allotted admission as per that choice, but rather haphazardly.
Any one had that experience ??

It won't be advisable to go to NLU Ranchi. Its a new law school, at a very locationally disadvantaged place and doesn't look a strong contender to come up the ranks.

Its interesting that students ranked in the Top 150 are opting for HNLU, GNLU and RMLNLU (at least 10 such cases).. while these institutions are definitely good, I'm surprised that some students have preferred them over NUJS, NLIU and NLU-J which are much safer and better option.. I spps they have their reasons.. to each his own.!!

@ Prachi: The NUJS intake information is wrong.

NUJS admitted 78 general category students, with the last mark being 134, and the last rank being 374.

It may be relevant to note that in the case of NLIU-Bhopal, though with an intake of only 33 general category students, the last mark to secure admission is 138, and the last rank is 205.

It is therefore debatable as to which is the more preferred option.

Dear Mr PR
There were many answers wrong in CLAT 2012. If you consider that, The prediction was almost there. But to inform every one - "My article was more to educate. It helps many. And rationally speaking - predictions are predictions after all. we can not expect that to be exactly the same. when i said 174, it means some where near to that. and incidentally it was exactly correct.

Hello,
I just completed my first year at ILS Law College Pune. This time around i took clat again, and scored a rank of 466, and it seems i will be getting GNLU for sure.
Is it worth switching to GNLU?
I have not decided which field i'll be pursuing in the future, whether Corporate or Litgation. But i would like to the option of having placements at the end of the day.
I'm well settled in pune, but its just that im not satisfied with the way how college works, and i think even if i stay in ILS and put in my best and utilise the time well enough, I can extract the most out of being an ILS student.
So is it advisable to switch to GNLU?
and does the brand name matter? ILS has been known for quite a long time, and GNLU is only coming up.
Please advise :)

No. Please don't. GNLU would be a rank 6-7 college, ILS would be 8-9. Please do not waste one full year, just to shift to a slightly better college.

And trust me, Pune as a city has a lot to offer. Also consider this: The FEES DIFFERENCE between GNLU and ILS is at least 1 lakh per year. Imagine what all great opportunities and adventures you can afford with 5 lakh extra rupees (summer schools, international internships etc).

Only if you had got NLS, NALSAR or NUJS should you have shifted.

Just work harder man and stay at ILS.

Not an easy question to answer and you will get different perspectives. In terms of placements, GNLU has done extremely well. In fact, they break into top 5 law schools on that basis and have attracted tier 1 firms to their campus. In comparison, ILS has been around long time but failed to get that attention. For me, this is a big difference.

At rank 431 I am getting GNLU Gandhinagar and have a slim chance of an upgrade to NLU Jodhpur by the 4th list. On the basis of my CBSE result (96%) I am likely to get Shri Ram College of Commerce Delhi University for an Hons graduation in Commerce or Economics.

Please give your perspective on whether I should prefer any of these over SRCC (which is No 1 in India & Asia). Had it been NUJS Kolkata I wud've taken it ahead of SRCC without a dilemma but i'm confused as to how wise it would be to fore-go SRCC for GNLU or even NLU-J.

Rijul, you should go to SRCC. The SRCC brand is very highly regarded throughout the world. Trust me, it's a very elite degree that opens a lot of doors (Investment Banks, Business Schools, Law Schools, basically whatever the hell you want. Plus, as everyone knows, Delhi is a lot of fun. You get to network a lot, and meet a lot influential people. IMO, a city like Gandhinagar or Jodhpur doesn't even come close. At the end of those 2 years, if you still want to do law, DU is always there. If I were you, I'd go to SRCC in a heartbeat.

Yes SRCC is better in almost all regards..Better college, better city probably better placements...bt they r very very different courses...you need to sort this thing first into yr head as to what u want to do...if law is your ultimate aim then i wont suggest DU for the simple reason that u will end up spending an extra year...(its 3+3).

nujs sucks. the seniors here are after the new entrants everytime to rag them. they are rude and they made students do weird and offensive tasks. since it is the top 3rd law college therefore no student speaks the demerits of it. i myself am a student of 1st year here and i am fed up with the behaviour of the seniors here. they are very authoritative and made the juniors do offensive stuffs. i dont know about the other law colleges but what an irony law is being flouted in a college where they claim to produce future lawmakers.i hope my response will do something.
