CLAT 2023: The common mistakes while filling the CLAT Application Form

√ Filling the name incorrectly. It is mentioned to fill the full name as per the Class 12th or Class 10th certificate. Don't miss out on the middle name (if given in the certificate).

√ Mention the correct category especially in the case of NRI or NRI Sponsored category. You can claim a seat in a better college with this choice if you really have some NRI relative ready to pay for your education at an NLU.

√ Ignoring the test centre preference list by just mentioning the hometown in the first preference. You must make sure the other 2 preferences are closer to your hometown for minimum traveling in case don't get the exam centre as per your first choice.

√ Missing the state-specific reservation you're eligible for. In the hurry to fill the form, we miss out on checking the category reservations we can claim at the college from our state. For example, if I belong to Kolkata, I am eligible to claim seat reservations at WBNUJS, Kolkata. (Check carefully before filling the "Reservation" Tab)

*Note: We've highlighted the above points to make sure there isn't any scope of anxiety or cancellation of candidature on behalf of such mere information.
