Factors affecting CLAT Cut Off 2021

The examination of CLAT 2021 was held on the specified centres by the CLAT Consortium on 23rd July 2021 between 2 pm to 4 pm on Friday. After the exam, it was inferred that the paper was overall quite lengthy; however, the section of Legal Reasoning was found to be the easiest among all the other areas. There was an immense change in the Paper Pattern of the examination and because of which we would now witness a significant difference in the cut off for this year. 

The CLAT Cutoff 2021 depends on various different factors such as 

  • The difficulty level of the exam
  • The number of applicants 
  • Total number of seats available
  • Previous year cutoff trend
