Cut-off marks are the minimum qualifying score you must secure to get admission to law courses offered by National Law Universities (NLUs). 

The Consortium of NLUs will release the round-wise cut-off marks for 22 participating NLUs.

CLAT Cut-off 2023 would be category-specific for the 5-year integrated LLB and one-year LLM programs. 

  • Ideally, the cut-off ranges between 95-100 if you belong to the general category, while 80-85 for those belonging to SC/ ST categories.
  • However, it may vary depending on factors like the number of students who appeared for the exam, the difficulty level of the paper, category, etc.
  • Before the consortium publishes cut-off marks, you can calculate your scores using the answer key and compare CLAT Marks vs. Rank.

Read through the post to understand the cut-off trends tabulated with the previous year's cut-off data for different categories.

Expected CLAT 2023 Cut Off

Usually, the cut-off marks are released after the post-declaration of CLAT Result 2022.

As the exam is scheduled for 18 December 2022, cut-off marks are expected to be declared tentatively in the second week of January 2023.

  • The expected cut-off for admission to the top 3 NLUs should be between 100 and 105.
  • The expected CLAT Cut Off 2022 should be 95-100 if you want to get admission to one of the top 5 NLUs.
  • To secure admission to one of the NLUs, you must score between 80 and 85 in the entrance exam. 

The Consortium of NLUs will release the CLAT Cut-Off 2023 marks separately for UG and PG programs on the official website.

Generally, the cut-off will be high for the general category compared to SC/ST/PwD categories.

Let us check the cut-off trends for different categories from the graph below.
