Dear student, first of all, don't take so much tension and don't worry if you fail to apply for CLAT, then you can also apply for DU LL.B. This is also a good university and similar to CLAT.

It is my pleasure to help you and give your question's answer
first of all CLAT exam is 12th based exam so anyone who cleared their 12th board exam can sit for CLAT exam and as you said you are doing B.Com so you can give CLAT exam.

I'm a 12th grader for batch 2021- 2022. I would like to ask that is it suitable for me to give CLAT Exam 2023.

Hello! Sriti, Yes, right after your 12th, if you think you are prepared enough to sit in this exam, then you can go for it. As 2023 will be the next year, you can still give your 1st attempt in 2022, but if you want to give next year it's fine too.
