CLAT stands for Common Law Admission Test. This is biggest and most significant law entrance exam in India. Firstly, it was conducted in 2008 and now more than 40,000 students appear in this exam every year after their +2 exam. Basically, this test is conducted by 19 National Universities of India one by one. As per the results of this exam, students get seats in the important Law Universities and 43 other Institutions where Law is taught in India.
What is the controversy?
Basically, the Common Law Admission Test was conducted on 13th of May this year by National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi. But there were glitches in hardware of computers in many centres and students had to suffer. 30-35 minutes are spoiled of some students. So, these students applied the plea in their concerned High Courts. Moreover, the attendance is also conducted during the exam which is expected to be taken before the exam. Further, this kind of faults in national exams is really a matter of concern for our youth. These exams should be taken seriously.
Furthermore, Students are claiming mismanagement in this exam overall. Apart from this, students wings of political parties are also doing the favour of students. The ABVP (Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad, Student wing of BJP) moved to Delhi High Court and asked that the exam should be conducted by central government or UPSC or CBSE or any other autonomous body instead of Universities. Moreover, Supreme Court asked National University of Advanced Legal Studies ( NUALS), to come up with a “wholesome solution” to redress the complaints against Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018. However, Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid appeared for petitioners.
