Now, the question arises as to which entrance exam to appear. For example, those seeking admission to National Law Universities will have to appear in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). However, if you are planning to secure a seat in NLU Delhi, CLAT wouldn’t be the right choice as the university doesn’t accept CLAT scores.
