CLAT 2021 Entrance Exam: The examination date of the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) has been rescheduled to avoid a clash with CBSE Board Exams 2021. CLAT is a national level entrance exam through which candidates can take admissions to undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) law programmes. CLAT 2021 entrance exam was earlier scheduled on May 9 but it would now be conducted on June 13, 2021. The decision to postpone the exam was taken during the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Consortium of National Law Universities on January 6. “The rescheduling was considered because the date was clashing with the CBSE exams schedule which was announced last week,” the official notice read.
