Expected cut off/ Decent score/ NLU cut-off for the General Category students appearing in CLAT 2016 is approximately 125 but is this cut off enough for ensuring a seat in NLU? Definitely not.

Most of the candidates carry a perception in mind that if they achieve the cut off marks then that is enough and they usually prepare and attempt only that number of questions. But this is surely not enough. One needs to score 140+ marks to entitle a top notch NLU seat in his/her name.

Best Wishes!!
