Changes in the Eligibility criteria

The BCI has ordered  all the law institutions and universities  to change the age parameter included in the eligibility criteria. The change states that the aspirant should not exceed  20 years of age if  the candidate is applying under General category and should not exceed 22 years if  he/she is applying under reserved categories viz OBC/SC/ST/ Differently baled categories.


Note: Candidates had some doubts regarding the upper age limit of OBC  category candidates. As per the official notification of BCI's  the upper age limit of the OBC category candidates is 22 years. In the contrary CLAT 2017 convenor- Dr. A Lakshminath earlier said that  the upper age limit for OBC candidates is 20 years, which created  the confusion among CLAT aspirants. But the confusion has  been cleared  as the Convenor himself clarified the confusion  by stating that only BCI rules are to be followed.
