The Consortium of National Law Universities has issued revised guidelines in accordance with COVID-19 safety measures, stating that candidates who have tested positive for the coronavirus will not be permitted to appear for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 – the main exam that facilitates admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Law.
An official notice stated that “All candidates who have been tested positive and are under medical surveillance or in isolation will not be permitted to take the CLAT 2020 examination scheduled to be held on 28th September 2020”.
According to news reports, the guidelines stipulate that candidates need to provide a self-health declaration form to the exam hall without which entry will be denied. Students also need to bring their own masks, gloves, and personal hand sanitisers to the exam centre.
The exam will also be held observing social distancing norms in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
