How is CLAT Result 2021, Merit List prepared?

To prepare the clat law merit list result, the CLNU follows the steps below-

Calculation of the raw marks

The CLNU determines the scores of the candidates based on the marking scheme of the CLAT. For each correct answer, 1 mark is added and for each negative answer, -0.25 marks are deducted. Hence, the formula to calculate the CLAT total scores is as follows-
