Tamil Nadu National Law School V-C had written to the CEOs of all districts
There has been a considerable increase in the number of students from Tamil Nadu who had appeared for CLAT (Combined Law Admission Test) 2018 held on Sunday.

Ninety per cent of the 2,347 registered candidates appeared for the examination at 12 centres across Tamil Nadu, signifying an overall increase in 250 to 300 aspirants over last year, according to sources in Tamil Nadu National Law School(TNNLS).

The entrance test was conducted at five centres in Chennai, two each in Coimbatore and Madurai districts and three in Tiruchi district.

To create awareness about CLAT 2018, TNNLS Vice-Chancellor Kamala Sankaran wrote to the Chief Educational Officers of all districts in the State during the course of 2017-18 academic year requesting them to convey the importance of the test among Plus Two students.

The communication was made since a section of parents was ignorant about the online application process, and were under the impression that a high score in Plus Two alone would suffice.

The TNNLS admits students from home State to 50% seats for its two programs: B.A.,LL.B (Hons.) and B.Com., LL.B (Hons.) programs, with an intake of 55 students each.

Score in CLAT is the basis for admission to 19 national law universities.

This year, the organising university was The National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi.

There was no upper age limit for UG Programme in CLAT 2018.

The candidates were eligible for the exam on the basis of 45% score in Plus Two in the case of Unreserved/OBC/Specially Abled Persons (SAP) and other categories, and 40% marks in case of candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe (SC/ST) categories.

Score in CLAT is also the basis for selection of candidates by some deemed to be universities.
