I believe preparation is key. You have to prepare right from now and I also think in the exam time management will make or break it. A few pointers are given below on how CLAT aspirants can start preparation:

Read newspaper articles because by definition a news paper covers all recent “events of significance” just like the CLAT expects you to!
Read newspaper editorials because
I believe the pattern change is in the best interest for the future of the legal profession. CLAT aspirants both 12th pass students as well as graduates must focus on English language comprehension, critical reasoning and decision making because the paper as a whole focuses on skills required in a lawyer.

If you have seen the sample questions released by CLAT, the legal section is very inter
Yes, there is Economically Weaker Section Quota in 5 NLUs under CLAT with 32 seats.

The West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata (WBNUJS) NUJS KOLKATA 4 seats
Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai (MNLU) MNLU MUMBAI 15 seats
Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University, Visakhapatnam (DSNLU) DSNLU VISHAKAPATNAM 6 seats
Maharashtra National Law Universi
All National Law Schools offer scholarships for deserving students, NLU DELHI is also among the participating universities.

The Scope: between 4 to 8 seats in each NLU (only the NLUs given below) :

National Law School of India University, Bangalore (NLSIU) 4 seats
National Academy of Legal Study and Research University of Law, Hyderabad (NALSAR) 5 seats
The National Law Institute
Yes, the order of exams given are more or less the correct order in terms of difficulty. However this doesn't mean that the preparation is same for all.

Take the time to check syllabus and exam pattern for each and you will understand how to tweak your preparation. For example, you will focus on certain topics for CLAT vs some other topics for SLAT, MH-CET.

The AILET is known to be easie
The CLAT2020 pattern change was recently announced with total marks being 150 reduced from what was previously 200.

The top 5 National Law Schools NLUs have always taken the best 350–400 ranks from the top students, in GS / unreserved category and many lower rank holders for state domicile, SC, OBC, etc. This inspite of difficult and unpredictable papers for eg. 2011.

In my opinion,
Getting admission in a reputed/top-tier institute or university will help you secure an education loan.

Meritorious students are offered financial help to study in NLUs by many national banks. However Banks in India are very strict in assessing the eligibility of the candidates. The admission to NLUs will open new doors for you, like a reputed Bank but there is no extreme change i.e. processi
Yes, you can. The CLAT does not have an age limit.

The reason age limit is removed as an entry barrier is because the legal field needs people from diverse backgrounds.

You are welcome to attempt the CLAT exam and on securing the cut-off, participate in the counselling for seat allotment in NLUs.

As a 30yr old here are some things you may want to consider before taking the plunge.
If you apply under NRI sponsored quota, you are still in the race under general category too.
When you fill the CLAT 2020 application form, in the online form you will see the fifth tab “reservation” which will show both General, NRI/NRI Sponsored seats below your name.
This will show once you have opted in for NRI/NRI Sponsored seats.

The NRI/NRI Sponsored seats under CLAT
For any student, working towards getting an admission in the top 5 National Law Schools is nothing short of the most difficult thing in the world!
With 6 months in hand, I would say you are at a good place to begin CLAT preparation provided you stick to a study schedule and use good study materials. If possible attend a 40 days crash course with us, as a final brush up. Put in sincere efforts
Let's consider how big a role numbers will play in your practice of Law. Take a look at any bare Act: they have chapters, sections and second level headings with its own set of sections!
GOOD NEWS: You are not expected to memorize any of that! You will probably draft contracts and agreements which may involve several numbers but again number crunching will be done by the software. You are n
There is no upper age limit for CLAT.
The NIOS is treated as equivalent examination so it does not prevent you from sitting for the CLAT.
As regards minimum percentage of marks in the qualifying examination (i.e., 10+2 or an equivalent examination), the candidates must have secured:
Forty five percent (45%) marks or its equivalent grade in case of candidates belonging to General / OBC
It is not necessary to appear for CLAT or any other from a certain place to prove state domicile.

If fact, a lot of students opt for a center in the same city for all exams so they do not have to travel too many times.
You can appear for CLAT, AILET, SLAT etc all law entrance exams from a single city/town which is also an exam center for the Law Entrance Exams.
