Clearing the CLAT Cut Off is very important because unless a certain minimum score is achieved, the chances of getting a counseling call from Top NLUs diminish significantly. So, it is very important to score well in each section of the test. Post the written exam, the applicants are screened based on their CLAT score and called for the counseling round by the institutes they indicated in their choice in the online form.
