More than 60,000 students gave Common Law Admission Test 2018 (CLAT 2018) at various test centers across India.  This year CLAT was organised by The National University of Advanced Legal Studies Kochi, Kerala, India

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), is an all India common entrance examination, conducted on rotational basis by 19 National Law Universities (NLUs) for admissions to their UG and PG degree programmes.

The UG Exam was comparatively easy but PG was medium-hard.

Adding to the ruckus created last year, this year was not better off with reports of mismanagement, server crashes, loss of time and much more, from around the country. Various students turned to Social Media Sites expressing their anguish over the whole management of CLAT.

Reports from around the country confirms that there were a lot of technical glitches due to which a lot of time of the students was wasted.

One of the student reported that “The exam started on time but the questions were not being displayed properly. The invigilators had no answer to that. Everyone was worried as time was loosing out. The supervisors said that they are trying to resolve. For more than 10-15 minutes the students sat without an answer. Is it just for students to resume exam after this confusion and commotion?”

The issue will continue aggravating in future too unless there are guidelines on how technical issues have to be dealt by the IT experts. Even students have to be informed that in case of technical glitch they have a right to claim extra time. This confusion and lack of information about such issues (both people conducting and students) has resulted in such inefficient management of the exam. While demand is surging for reconducting the exam as thousands of students career are at stake, reply from CLAT is awaited.

As per the sources this time the exams was conducted by SIFY Technologies for NUALS Kochi. Whereas it is also reported that extra time was given to the aggrieved students whose time was deducted due to there technical glitches. In many centers the exams extended to 30 minutes due to this.

Some students and parents have reported the mismanagement to the extent of no provision of Air Conditioners even charging 20 rupees for keeping the bags.

More updates awaited…
