How to calculate marks through CLAT Answer Key?

As per the CLAT UG Exam Pattern, every correct answer is awarded 1 mark and every incorrect answer will deduct 0.25 marks, one can use the formula given below.

CLAT Scores = Total numbers of Correct options (1) - Total number of incorrect responses (0.25)

For example -

If the number of correct answers is 105 and incorrect answers are 20 and the rest 5 are dropped, then the total marks will be calculated as-

Total CLAT Marks = (105*1) - (20*0.25) - (5*0)

Therefore, Total marks = 105 - 5 = 100

To calculate probable scores in CLAT 2021, the candidate needs to follow the instructions given in the table below.
