CLAT Counselling 2023

Cut off score is the minimum score that the candidate needs to reach to go to the following process of CLAT Counseling 2023. Just after releasing the results, the CLAT office provides the merit lists. The seat allotment process comes in 3 rounds that give candidates a chance to get admission.

Candidates are required to deposit INR 50,000 as an admission fee. It also helps to book the allocated seat in the program.

Some steps are given below that will help the candidates know what to do after getting NLSIU Bangalore Cut Off Marks:

1st Step: During the application process, the officials release the merit list for all the candidates. Candidates can follow the merit list and take part in the counselling. 

2nd Step: As mentioned above, the candidates have to pay the fees of INR 50,000 to confirm admission and book the seat. The officials need to pay the fee on the given date; if it is not paid in time, the candidate might get replaced. They also offer the option upon paying the fees to lock the seat of candidates; it helps to lock the seat of the candidate without any issue of reallocation in the future. 

3rd Step: After the 1st round and fee payment process is finished, the candidates will get another admission round. This round comes with a waiting list filled with other candidates who might get a seat if available after the admission process. 

Just like the other candidates, all the candidates on the waitlist will also have to pay the fees money of INR 50,000.

If any candidate wants to withdraw the money from their admission process, they will only get INR 40,000, and the rest will be deducted as a nominal admission fee.

If the candidates withdraw their money after the specific date, they will not get any return. 

4th Step: All the candidates who did not get a seat from the waiting list in the 2nd round will come to the 3rd round of admission. The waitlisted candidates can replace the withdrawn candidates in this seat allotment list. This is the last admission list allotment, so there are no chances left for the remaining candidates after this round. 

5th Step: After the seat allotment and the entire round is completed. All candidates are required to visit the NLSIU for confirmation of admission. Without reporting for the other process, the final confirmation of the candidates will be cancelled. All the candidates will need to do other formalities and verifications with the help of different documents.
