Rajneesh Singh: Predicts trouble ahead...One wise CLAT aspirant’s first reaction the day of the exam at 5.08 pm was: “Sir, what a shit! They gave us a dam easy paper!! This is bad, very bad!!”

Screenshot 2016-04-13 15.43.19A mock Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2016 will likely be live on CLAT’s official website 3 May onward, with a new system to make the mock exam experience almost like the actual CLAT.

Law not sexy anymore?The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) experienced the slightest slump in popularity this year, for the first time since the exam was established. The clash of engineering (IIT) and medical (PMT) entrances, on 8 May, with CLAT 2016 pulled potential CLAT applicants away to the more popular entrances.

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2016 online application deadline has been extended till tonight.

This extension does not apply to candidates registering for the exam through offline payment of registration fee.

According to a notification on CLAT’s website:

“This is for the notice of aspirants for admission to Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate Courses in Law through CLAT-2016 that the last date for applying online (only through online payment) is extended upto 05 April 2016 till 11:59 pm.”

t4cqjrloCommon Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2016 convenor RGNUL Patiala has already allotted dates for taking up candidates’ question-paper error representations and to publish a revised answer key, in the CLAT 2016 calendar which was officially announced online.

The 2016 Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) will be conducted by RGNUL Patiala on 8 May 2016 from 3pm to 5pm, according to a notification on the law school’s website.

Shamnad Basheer, former NUJS Kolkata professor and founder of NGO Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access (IDIA), has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court seeking a permanent CLAT body and transparency in the exam.

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015’s committee of “experts”, in its report on alleged errors in the CLAT 2015 LLB paper, defended the answer key by reproducing dictionary definitions of words and asserting that candidates were expected to “feel the pulse” of the question paper.

RTI response: The computer says no

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 expert panel, which was formed twice to examine alleged errors in the CLAT 2015 question papers, was composed of secret members. CLAT 2015 convenor RMLNLU Lucknow rejected a right to information (RTI) request for the names of the members of the panel which had dismissed allegations that one-fifth of the CLAT 2015 LLB paper was error-ridden.

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 expert committee has found that the CLAT 2015 LLB question paper has no errors, the Punjab & Haryana high court was told yesterday in a writ filed by CLAT 2015 candidate Agrima Lailer through advocate Ravinder Malik. 

The CLAT colossus: Unstoppable?The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 admission process was closed on Tuesday before the Bombay high court order that could result in a merit list reshuffle could be fully implemented.

Experts: Hands fullThe Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 convenor will again form an expert committee to look into allegedly incorrect CLAT 2015 LLM questions and revise the LLM merit list accordingly, on the directions of the Chhattisgarh high court.

The Bombay high court judgment has been uploaded on the Bombay high court website, ordering an expert committee with the power to take a decision that could revise the “merit list of candidates if necessary”, making “the whole merit list and all subsequent process, will be subject to outcome of the Expert Panel/Comittee’s decision”.
