- Students with rank of 685 to 964 in general category called for processing

Chanakya National Law University would start the admission process from June 27. It has received the cut-off marks for its BA LLB and BBA LLB programmes.

Admission for reserved category (OBC, SC/ST) students would takes place on June 27 and 28, while for the general (unreserved) category it would be on June 30.

On Friday evening, the Chanakya National Law University (CNLU) received the cut-off marks list from Gujarat National Law University (GNLU), Gandhinagar. The Gujarat university was the organising institution for this year’s Common Law Admission Test (Clat).

According to the cut-off marks issued by the GNLU, students having all India rank of 685 to 964 under the general category have been called for admissions at CNLU. Marks wise, students securing 128.75 to 133.5 are eligible for CNLU.

Institution registrar S.P. Singh said: “The GNLU administration on Friday evening provided us the list of 120 students (60 under general category and 60 under reserved category) for admissions at CNLU this year.”

Most of the students in the general category are from Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bengal, Jharkhand and Delhi.

In the reserved category (Other Backward Class), students securing marks between 85 and 128 have been called for admission. According to the Bihar Reservation Act, students from the state falling under the reserved category can avail reservation facilities. But those from other states falling under reserved category have to fetch general category score to avail seats in the Bihar institution.

This year, the GNLU has given students a relaxation of applying for their respective law universities after the declaration of Clat results. Students were asked for three institutions of their choice based on their Clat score declared earlier this month. Till last year, students used to choose their institution during the time of filling of entrance test forms.

Registrar S.P. Singh said: “The introduction of centralised online registration as well as admission and counselling are the two most important features of CLAT-2014. The new process will save huge amount of time, money and energy of thousands of students.”
