Now, a Class 12 Cambridge student can appear for Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), for admission to any of the 11 national law schools in India.
On Thursday, the National Law Institute University in Bhopal confirmed that students affiliated to University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) are eligible to sit for CLAT. The test will be conducted on May 9.
“Cambridge students are already eligible to sit for medical and engineering entrance tests in India, and so I am delighted that the path has been opened for them to sit for CLAT,” said Ian Chambers, CIE regional manager, South Asia. “The legal profession is a popular career choice for Cambridge students, and this new ruling will open doors for them to study law in India.”
In India, more than 230 schools are registered with CIE. The Association of Indian Universities recognises Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International A-Level as equivalent to Class 10 and Class 12 level respectively.
