Consortium of National Law Universities (NLUs) has declared the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2021 results a few minutes ago, around midnight of July 29, 2021. Results have been announced on the official website consortiumofnlus.ac.in. Candidates who appeared for the exam on July 23, 2021, can check their results on the portal by logging in to their accounts.
The consortium has, as of now, not published any notification announcing the results. However, candidates have shared on social media platforms that the result is out. Students are sharing their marks and ranks on facebook, telegram and other platforms.
The website crashed as soon as results were published. Still, a few candidates have reported that they have been able to check their results. While others are struggling to open the website. The website has presumably crashed due to heavy traffic, though it can also be some other technical issue. However the only way for candidates to check their ranks is to patiently wait, like they have unfortunately been doing since morning of the result date, and login.
The consortium was supposed to announce the result yesterday, on July 28, 2021, and had initially planned to make the announcement by evening. Nevertheless due to undisclosed reasons, the result announcement got delayed.
Now that the results are out, registration for the counselling process will begin from today. This year, a total of 70,277 candidates had registered for the exam out of which, 62,106 aspirants gave the national-level law exam.

Step 4: Results will appear on the screen. Either download or print a copy of the results for future use.
This year, the Consortium authorities rectified the provisional answer key and dropped one question from CLAT 2021. As per reports, 1,026 objections were received on 61 questions in the entrance exam. Ultimately, question 143 from the entrance exam has been dropped. Therefore, students have now been evaluated on the basis of 149 questions rather than 150.
CLAT 2021: What will happen next?
According to official schedule, the CLAT 2021 counselling registration process shall begin from tomorrow. The consortium will also release a list of candidates who are shortlisted for the counselling process. Candidates are permitted to complete the online registration formalities by June 30, 2021, up to 12:00 pm. Thereafter, the first counselling list shall be released on the official portal on August 01, 2021. To reserve or confirm their NLU seats, candidates have to pay an amount of Rs.50,000.
According to the published notice, candidates with allotted seats in the first to fourth counselling rounds can withdraw their “provisional admission”. However, they must do so on or before August 18, 2021, to receive a full refund of Rs.50,000. After the stated deadline, Rs.10,000 shall be deducted from the counselling fee for two reasons – 1. Blocking the seat and 2. Creating a disadvantage for waitlist students.
CLAT 2021 was conducted across the country on July 23, 2021, through the offline mode. The exam was held at 147 centres spread across 82 cities in India. This year, 88% of registered candidates appeared for the national-level undergraduate law entrance exam.
