    From the view of academics the college is very good as the faculty members are serious about completing the course and go through the depth of course. As the course is updated at the end of every year.

    Have a question related to NLU Shimla ?

    Is there any chance of getting NLU Shimla or NLU Assam with a rank of 4517 in general category through vacant seats? Please reply ASAP.


    You haven't mentioned whether your query us regarding UG or PG course. As per the information available in your profile we consider that you are seeking admission in to UG course. The cut off in 2019 in round 3 for general category was as follows

    • NLU, Guwahati:1471
    • NLU, Shimla:1299

    Looking at the cut off it is very difficult to get seat in these NLUs considering your rank. However, cut off is subjected to change depending on number of candidates appeared, difficulty of the exam and number of seats available for admission etc.

    To know the possible colleges in which you may get seat you can use our CLAT college predictor 

    I have sociology(hons) in miranda house (1st year). i also gave clat this year, got a seat in nlu shimla in the 1st round. will opt for revise option but what would be better? continuing in miranda house or leaving it for nlu?

    Dear Akansha,

    Going by reputation, Miranda House is more reputable than HPNLU, Shimla which is a lower ranked NLU.

    However, HPNLU will probably give you better employment opportunities through BALLB which has better placement opportunities than a sociology (Hons) degree.

    Since you have applied for upgradation option in the counselling, if you get a better ranked NLU then you should definitely go for it.

    Best of luck!

    I secured 91.5 marks in clat 2019 can i get nlu shimla or jabalpur in gen category

    With the score you're mentioning you'll get a rank somewhere near 10000-15000. So in general category you can definitely expect NLUs Shimla and Jabalpur. In general category they require a rank below 10000 in general category and also they have some seats reserved for the people belonging from the respective states so if you belong to those states you can definitely expect or else it would be a little difficult. But don't loose hope since you've a decent score. 

    All the very best
