Interestingly, this is the first time two CLAT exams have been held in the same year. CLAT 2022 was held on June 19, and CLAT 2023 has already been scheduled for December 2022.

The entrance exam will be conducted in pen-paper mode for a duration of two hours (120 minutes). 150 multiple-choice questions will be included in the CLAT UG 2023 exam, and each one will be worth one mark. For each incorrect response, 0.25 marks will be deducted from the final score. The CLAT PG will have 120 multiple-choice questions with marking and deductions similar to that of the UG paper.
English Language, Current Affairs, General Knowledge, Legal Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Techniques are all included in the CLAT UG 2023 syllabus. The LLB entrance exam will put a strong emphasis on assessing students’ understanding and reasoning skills.
CLAT 2023 will be conducted for admission to 22 national law colleges. The only institution that will not take part in CLAT 2023 is National Law University Delhi, which has its own entrance test called the All India Law Entrance Test. Candidates taking CLAT 2023 also have the option to use their CLAT scores to gain admission to law schools other than NLUs.
