Panel revises CLAT rank list for UG, PG

The Common Law Admission Test-2015 (CLAT-15) merit list for both undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) programmes were revised after a panel of experts re-evaluated the response sheets in the wake of emergence of “incorrect” answers to a few questions.

The CLAT-15 Committee, after being bombarded by RTI applications, has decided to provide individual question papers along with the response sheets to all candidates who appeared for the test.

A communiqué from the panel said one mark had been given to all candidates who marked either option “C” or “D” in UG test the Question No 186 (question ID: 1907) as the options were identical.

It added that Question No 35 (question ID: 1744) in the UG programme was withdrawn due to a typographical error, and one mark given to all candidates who appeared in the examination.

Prior to publication of the earlier rank list, Question No 182 (question ID: 1902) had been withdrawn from the question paper due to a typographical error, and one mark awarded to all candidates who appeared in the examination.

Therefore, the revised rank list reflects the impact of changes on only two questions in the UG test.

In the PG programme, the answer keys of as many as six questions—numbers 11, 59, 64, 69, 119 and 131—has been changed. 

The CLAT-15 Committee said that the seat allotment in accordance with these rank lists is likely to take place by Monday.

“Furthermore, considering a substantial number of RTI applications, it has been decided to provide individual question papers along with the response sheets to all candidates who have appeared in CLAT-15. Now any candidate can view/download his/her individual question paper by logging in to his/her personal account,” said the communiqué.

Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University, which had conducted CLAT-15, had formed a committee to look into the “representations” received and take a final view on them.

According to varsity officials, a number of representations had been received from the candidates questioning the accuracy of the answers of certain questions.

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