The National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore, has released the final answer key of NLAT 2020. The exam was conducted on 12 September 2020. Another exam was held on 14 September 2020 for those candidates who couldn’t take the exam on 12 September 2020 because of technical difficulties. About 27,538 candidates had registered for the NLAT examination, out of which 26,071 candidates appeared for the exam.

- 2 marks for a correct answer
- -0.5 marks for an incorrect answer

Provisional NLAT 2020 Answer Key
On 12 September 2020, the university had released the provisional answers keys of NLAT 2020 for the UG program (Batch 1-3) and PG program (Batch 1). Following this, they released the answer key for the additional batches on 14 September 2020.
Declaration of NLAT Result 2020
In an order released earlier, the honorable Supreme Court of India had forbidden NLSIU from declaring the results of the NLAT exam. The court has directed the university not to carry out any admission process. Before it passes judgment on the pending case, NLSIU cannot proceed to admission based on NLAT scores. After NLSIU decided to pull out of CLAT 2020 and conduct its own exam, the NLU Consortium and an aggrieved parent dragged NLSIU to the apex court. The case is slated for hearing today in the Supreme Court of India.
