BANGALORE: The Gujarat National Law University that conducted the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) released reconciled results of the test on Friday. The results were withheld due to ‘technical discrepancies’.
Siddharth Rajeevan from National Public School, H S R Layout, secured an all-India rank of 79. “I did expect this as I studied hard and the coaching I received was useful,” he said. He was ranked 79th even in the results announced on May 31.
The aspiring lawyer prefers National Law School of India University, Bangalore, followed by the National Academy for Legal Studies and Research, Hyderabad.
In an official clarification, the university said it received emails from several candidates expressing concern about the marks expected and the score declared.
Candidates were required to put the barcode sticker on the front of the OMR sheet while name, signature, roll number and candidate sticker were to be affixed, along with the invigilator’s signature, and later concealed on the rear of the sheet.
“The only issue the CLAT Secretariat found was that the barcode sticker affixed on the front page of the OMR answer sheet and candidate sticker affixed on the last page were not matching in a few cases. Any mismatch can cause the marks being reflected against a different roll number,” the clarification stated.
There are 1,660 Bachelor of Laws and 491 Master of Laws (LLM) seats in the 14 National Law Schools in the country.
