CLAT is all set to become paperless – CLAT Exam may goes Online


CLAT 2015 may be an Online Test

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), the entry point to prominent law universities in India, might now be conducted online. The Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMNLNU), which will organize the exam for the academic session 2015, is considering for a paperless test. The exam is taken by about 4000 law aspirants every year.

Gurdip Singh, vice chancellor, RMNLNU confirmed that the university is proposing to go completely online, right from the stage of applying to the end process of counseling. The chancellor further added that the time is ripe to go global and embrace advanced technologies.

“We have viewed presentations from agencies like Prometric and TCS. We are yet to hear from Pearson, another agency to be considered for conducting the online exam”, Singh said.

The university will put forth the final proposal before the CLAT committee in the end of September or the first week of October, which will have the ultimate say.

It is also worth noting that Prometric has the experience of conducting online entrance exam for admissions to the Indian Institutes of Managements (IIMs) and TCS has been roped in to conduct entrance test for the Indian Institutes of Technologies (IITs).

This year, the CLAT committee had to with held the results, 24 hours after its declaration due to technical goof ups. The Gujarat Law University conducted the exam and it claimed that a mismatch between the bar code stickers and the candidates’ stickers resulted in marks discrepancies.
