The Common Law Admission goes paperless. The test is taken by 40,000 students every year and from this year onwards it will be conducted online with Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMLNLU).
According to Gurdip Singh, Director of RMLNLU, They plan to go completely online from the application stage to the counselling stage. Online exam will ensure that it is hassle-free. It’s time we went global and adopted technological advances.
Prometric, TCS and Pearson are the agencies to be considered while conducting online exam. The University has viewed presentations from Prometric and TCS while Pearson is yet to be approached. While Prometric has been conducting online entrance exam for admissions to IIMs, TCS was roped in to hold online entrance test for IITs.
Prof Singh said that the final decision will be taken by committee of CLAT. Once the University finalizes the decision, a proposal will be forwarded to the Committee for approval around September-end or mid-October.
This year, less than 24 hours of the results being declared, the CLAT core committee withheld them, citing technical discrepancies. Gujarat National Law University, which had conducted the test, claimed that the bar code stickers of some of the answer sheets did not match the candidates’ stickers, leading to hundreds of candidates complaining of discrepancy in marks.
