Breathe, this too will pass.
As I write this, clat.ac.in stubbornly refuses to load on my laptop. Clearly they’re having issues.
They do, however, have a plan of action chalked out. I think it would be worthwhile for us to know what that is, despite possibilities of another crash-‘n’-bang landing.
You know how the master rank system works. The consolidated PDF of the nation’s CLAT takers’ scores has been ready since May 27. It is, however, not going up because of the “technical difficulties” that they are facing. Prof. M P Singh says that it will be out by Monday, latest. What you will be able to do with this list is figure out what your real standing is, because a master rank really isn’t any help in that scenario.
Next, online counselling. I can see mistrust writ large on your face. Online counselling? Oh shit. Yeah, well, I’m not quite sure how it will pan out either. These are the details, anyway. The Core Committee held a meeting on Friday, May 27 to finalise the format. As of now, it is largely fixed, except for a few suggestions that they wish to incorporate. The notification regarding online counselling will be out on June 2, in all probability. The notification will mention the date from which the counselling begins. It will, hopefully, end by June 15, at which point all the entries to each college would be known. By June 25 you’ll be expected to complete formalities in terms of payment, etc. to the college you opted for.
Is this subject to change? Sure looks like everything is subject to change. However, we do have all this information from the head of the Core Committee, so it’s veracity is presumed to be unsullied.
If you’ve got your rank, please start figuring out what interests you in each college. It will become all the more imperative after the consolidated rank sheet is released.
Please stay calm, till then.
Update: Counselling will start, tentatively, between 31st to 2nd and will go on till 25th June, in all probability. This might take more/less time. But this seems to be the framework that they have in mind. Also, please click here to visit the official explanation of the goof-ups made by the CLAT Convener.
