To be qualified for the CLAT 2023 exam, candidates must have a minimum 10+2 academic record of 45% for undergraduate programmes and a graduation GPA of 50% for postgraduate programmes.

Legal reasoning, logical reasoning, English language, and current affairs make up the majority of the CLAT 2023 syllabus. There are 150 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) in the CLAT 2023 exam. One mark will be awarded for each correctly answered question, while 0.25 marks will be deducted for each incorrectly answered question.

The NLUs have a total of about 3,000 undergraduate seats and 1,000 places for the LLM programme. Only 19 of the 22 participating NLUs offer the five-year LLM programme, while all 22 offer the five-year LLB degree.
