With the release of the CLAT results, we see panic both amongst those who get high ranks and those who don’t. This panic is inevitable, too, since students as well as we have been working hard through the year and are therefore eager to know which law school they will finally get. In an attempt to ease at least some of the stress, we’ve created a rough guide to non-NLUs that you can consider if you haven’t done well in SET, AILET or CLAT. Some of these use class XII percentages for their cutoffs, whereas others either use CLAT scores or have their own entrance exams.
