CLAT-15 first list published

After repeated delays, the CLAT-15 seat allotment process got underway with the release of the first indicative list on Tuesday, though more objections with regard to the accuracy of the questions have surfaced.

The Implementation Committee, CLAT-2015 said in a communiqué on Tuesday that the candidates can check their allotment status by logging through their personal login account created at the time of CLAT registration.

“Utmost care has been taken to ensure complete accuracy in the preparation of the allotment list...in case of any inadvertent errors, the CLAT convener reserves the right to rectify such errors,” it said.

The CLAT committee clarified that ‘no claim shall lie against such rectification of errors even if it results in degradation of a candidate in the comparative merit list’.
Meanwhile, a group of students has raised fresh objections over the accuracy of questions, as it questioned the answer key released by the CLAT committee a few days back.

The group claimed that there were as many as 22 “genuine errors” in the question paper. It also claimed that 135 out of 150 questions in English, General Knowledge, Maths and Logical Reasoning were copied from one source or the other.

Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University which had conducted the CLAT-15, rejected the allegations and said that the panel of experts had found only two UG questions incorrect and had rectified them. The CLAT-15 merit list for both UG and PG programmes were revised after the panel of experts re-evaluated the response sheets in the wake of incorrect answers to a few questions.

CLAT-15 had been mired in controversies after the students raised objections not only on the accuracy of the questions but also on the way the test was conducted. The controversies resulted in the delay in finalising the seat allotment. A petition was also filed in the court seeking cancellation of the test.
