    Have a question related to CNLU Patna ? clat air rank is 9736 and obc rank is 1256 bihar there any chance of getting into cnlu???

    Hello Aspirant,

    Based on the analysis of previous year's cut-off and keeping some other factors in mind, as per your CLAT 2022 rank and category y ou have almost no chances in CNLU Patna even for state reserved seats .

    But note that above prediction is based on previous year's data of cut-offs of different institutions and the cut-offs are bound to change every year depending upon the various factors such as

    -->> Total number of candidates appeared in the CLAT 2022 entrance exam

    -->> Difficulty level of Paper

    -->> Top score

    -->> The seat intake for the 5-year LLB / LLM program

    -->> Total candidates from reservation categories (SC, ST, etc.)

    -->> Previous year's cutoff trends

    So don't assume it as final admission call from the respected institute. You will have to appear for seat allotment process.

    And you can get all details about CLAT seat allotment process from the link given below :-
