Panel finds errors in CLAT paper

The expert committee formed by Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMLNLU), which had organised the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) this year, has found that answers to a few questions were incorrect.

The committee is likely to release the first allotment list on or before Sunday, sources said.

Sources said the expert committee had found that answers to a few questions were incorrect. “It was found that a couple of answers were incorrect,” said a varsity official.

The varsity officials, however, rejected allegations of irregularities in CLAT 2015. “The tests were conducted on-line in a transparent manner....there was no report of any irregularity from anywhere,” they added.

The varsity had formed a committee to look into the “representations” received from candidates questioning the accuracy of answers to certain questions and take a “final view” on them.

“On uploading of question papers with answer keys on the CLAT website, representations have been received from some candidates wherein they have questioned the accuracy of answers to certain questions. Taking into cognisance these representations, an expert committee has been constituted to look into the matter. Publication of the proposed first indicative allotment list is, therefore, withheld till a final view is taken on these representations. Candidates shall be informed about the next date of publication of first indicative allotment list in due course,” the convener, implementation committee CLAT 2015, said.

Varsity officials did not comment on whether the test would be conducted again as demanded by some candidates, who had complained of  irregularities in the conduct of the test as well.

The varsity had published the answer keys following a directive by the Allahabad High Court, which was approached by some candidates.
