CLAT is a national level entrance exam for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate law courses offered by 22 National Law Universities in the country.

The CLAT 2020 exam was initially scheduled to be held on 7 September between 2-4 pm.

The exam will be held online at designated centres across the country. The admit cards issued to students can be used as movement passes to allow the candidate to move between containment zones and exam centres.

Amid demands of postponement of entrance examinations like NEET and JEE, a fake notification regarding the postponement of the exam was circulated on social media.

The Consortium of National Law Universities responsible for conducting the test had called out the notification, stating that it is false and that the date of examination remains unaltered.
