Carry a government-issued photo ID card

Do not bring a student ID card. Only a photo ID card issued by the Government of India will be accepted for verification.

In addition to the valid ID card, candidates must also carry the CLAT 2021 admit card issued by NLU Consortium.

Read the instructions carefully at least five times before attempting the test

Last year many candidates marked several questions for review. But it was clearly written in the instructions that questions marked for review will not be evaluated. Thus, candidates are advised to read the instructions given in the question booklet carefully before attempting the questions.

Read fast

Candidates will have to answer 150 questions within 120 minutes, which means, there will be less than one minute to answer a question. So, read fast in order to complete the CLAT 2021 within the given time.

Negative marking

Don’t take any chances as there will be a negative marking of 0.25 marks for each incorrect answer.

Report at the exam centre at 1 pm

Reach the CLAT exam centre ideally by 1 pm. No candidate will be allowed entry after 2:15 pm.

The exam starts at 2 pm. Question paper and OMR sheets in a sealed envelope will be distributed at 1:50 pm. The test will be over by 4 pm after which candidates will not be allowed to write anything on the OMR sheet.

Do not use pencil to encircle in OMR sheet

A Blue or black pen should be used to encircle the OMR sheet. Do not encircle two options for one answer.

Rough space in question booklet

Rough space will be given at the end of the question booklet. So, do not write anything in the question booklet, except in the given space.

Also, check all pages in the CLAT 2021 question paper and OMR sheet carefully. In case of any damage or wear-tear in the question paper, the candidates must inform the invigilator and get a new question booklet and OMR sheet.

Take question booklet and a carbon copy of OMR sheet after exam

Candidates can take their CLAT question booklet and carbonised copy of the OMR sheet with them after the completion of the exam. The OMR copy can be used later to match the answers with the CLAT answer key.

Follow COVID-19 protocols

Candidates should wear masks or face shields. In case a candidate has a temperature of more than 99.14, he/she will be taken to a separate room.
