City students see change in their CLAT rankings

The rankings of candidates who gave the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), 2015 have been revised following corrections made by a committee formed to look into some discrepancies found in the question papers.

A number of candidates from the City who gave their exam saw great changes in the ranks in the revised list. 

Charu Jagadish, a student from the City, had secured an All India Rank of 370. After the revision, her rank improved a great deal to 359. However, skeptical about how it would impact her future prospects, she said: “I do not know if this change will make a difference at all,” she said.

For another student, Shilpa (name changed), who secured a rank of around 5,000, the rank changed for the worse after the revision.

Her rank was 6,200 in the revised list. “As it is, I had little chance to qualify earlier, now I simply don’t have any chance of getting into any of the institutes under CLAT,” she said. This is the second time she has given the test and she is already studying in a law college in the City.

Another student Deepthi, got revised ranking of 4,570. “My rank has definitely changed. However, it is more or less the same from the earlier rank,” she said.

Much to the relief of candidates, a statement in the CLAT website said that seat allotments according to the revised list is ‘likely’ to be done by Monday. It was originally supposed to be announced on May 31.
