   Answer Type            Marking Scheme    
Correct answer +1
Incorrect answer -0.25
No response 0

 

CLAT Scores = Total numbers of Correct options x 1 - Total number of incorrect responses x 0.25

For Example: If the number of correct answers is 120 and incorrect answers are 30, then the CLAT score will be calculated as:

Total CLAT marks = (120x1) - (30X0.25) = 120-7.5

Then, the Total marks = 112.5
