Clat (PG) score of preceding year is being made applicable wef APR 2023 onwards. Candidates applying for SSC (JAG)-30 course (APR 2023) and SSC (JAG)-31 course (OCT 2023) will be required to provide Clat (PG) 2022 score.
All candidates applying for SSC JAG Entry need to register and appear for Clat (PG) exam of preceding year.
Clat 2022 exam will be held on 08 May 2022 and Clat 2023 exam will be held on 18 Dec 2022.
It’s a good move. Otherwise much more candidates used to apply for so few seats (in single digit). Many used to qualify (SSB) but used to get merit out.
