New Delhi: The Consortium of National Law Universities has released the final answer key for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020.
The candidates were allowed to raise objections on the preliminary answer key before the final version was released.
This year, raising objections were free of cost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Committee noted that a large number of unnecessary objections were filed because unlike NEET, JEE, NET, etc. which charge Rs. 1,000/- per objection, CLAT-2020 had made filing of objections absolutely free,” an official notification mentioned.
The applicants can check the final answer key which is available to download at consortiumofnlus.ac.in.
The committee has also dropped few questions on the basis of expert committee’s recommendations. “On the expert committee’s recommendation, 3 questions of UG Examination and one question of PG Examination have been dropped by the consortium. In addition in UG Examination, keys of four answers are being changed i.e., one each in English and Current Affairs including GK and two in Quantitative Techniques.” The committee did not recommend any change in Legal Reasoning and Logical Reasoning. Similarly, no change will be there in PG Examination key, as per the official notification.
