CLAT Rescheduled 7th September

The Consortium of National Law Universities has once again rescheduled the date of CLAT for 7th September 2020 which is Monday. The time for the exam will be 2 pm to 4 pm. CLAT is a National Level Examination for admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate law programs offered by the National Law Universities across the country. 

This decision was taken by the General Body of CLAT Consortium in a virtual meeting held on August 11, 2020. The Consortium has been continuously rescheduling the dates because of COVID-19 Pandemic, to fix a suitable date to conduct the examination, but due to increasing Corona Virus cases day by day, the dates to conduct the examination have to go under reconsideration and the dates keep on fluctuating because of the Pandemic. 

The mode to conduct the examination is decided to be online across the country. Students can download their respective Admit Card on 24th August from www.consortiumofnlus.ac.in and the admit card will contain every detail regarding their Roll No and Examination Center, etc.

Also, The Consortium is in a process of securing further permissions, so that Admit Cards of the registered candidates shall be considered as Movement Passes by local authorities to allow candidates to move between Containment zones and travel to their designated examination centers. The candidates are requested to keep themselves updated with all the guidelines which will be issued by the Consortium regarding all the necessary things from the official website—   www.consortiumofnlus.ac.in 

The Consortium will take care of everything which will be needed for the safety and security of the candidates. The plea seeking for the candidates to be able to appear for the examination from home will now not be maintainable, the Consortium told the Delhi HC. So, the candidates have to proceed to the examination centers and then only they will be able to take the test. 

All of this chaos is happening because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, or else the candidate would have appeared for the examination on May 10, 2020. Till now, this is the first time that CLAT Consortium is facing such issues. 


  • The revised date for the exam is the 7th of September.
  • The mode of examination will be Online.
  • The candidates have to appear in the examination centers for the exam.
  • The Admit Cards will be available on the website from 24th August on the official website of Consortium, which is www.consortiumofnlus.ac.in 
  • To get all the updates and notifications regarding examination, stay connected to the official website of Consortium.
