No, it is actually not important to clear the minimum CLAT cut off for the proceedings of the admission. If any student who fails this step, it will make them uneligible to get admitted in any law school that only accept candidates on the basis of CLAT score.

When shall I get my admit card and how for CLAT 2020?

Candidates will receive their admit cards 8-10 days before the exam day is scheduled. This year, the admit card is scheduled to be released in the second week of May 2020. The students can easily download the hall ticket on the official website once the link has been active.
