There is no such criteria of passing or failing . The cut off every year changes and it helps you decide which National Law University you are eligible to get into.
There are 17 National Law universities in India and One National Law University Delhi whcih takes admission Through AILET (All India Law Entrance Test ).
If say, I sit for CLAT this year and the admissions for NLS, Bangalore close at 145. So if I score well within that range, I get the college. As rightly pointed out in other answers, it is affected by your rank and percentile.
If you want to get into any NLU in the country your rank should be within 1000 or so. If you wish to get into one of the top 3 colleges in the country it should be within 200 or so. All this is for a general category seat.
On particular achieving marks, one earns eligibility to clear the cutoffs of Law colleges across country.

CLAT isn't about passing or failing. The cut off for the year you sit for the exam is what decides which NLU you will get into. (There are 17 NLUs in India, as well as NLUD where you get into through AILET)
Let's say I sit for CLAT this year and the admissions for NLS, Bangalore close at 145. So if I score well within that range, I get the college. As rightly pointed out in other answers, it is affected by your rank and percentile.
There are other factors such as reservation also which come into play.
