Mangaluru boy, Mysuru girl ranked 10th, 11th in CLAT

Bengaluru: Two students from Karnataka have made the state proud in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2017 examination, by securing ranks 10 and 11 in the country in the undergraduate category.

Dhrishaj Suresh from Mangaluru scored 146.5 out of 200 to secure all-India rank 10 and Ananya H S from Mysuru secured 11th rank with a score of 146.

The overall first rank was secured by Rajat Maloo from Jaipur with a score of 154.25 out of 200.

Dhrishaj, an 18-year-old who has just completed his II PU from Sharada PU College in Mangaluru, used to travel on weekends to Bengaluru for coaching classes because his father thought that the institutes in Mangaluru were not good enough.

“I want to join the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru, and later, I want to join the Indian Foreign Service,” he said. His father was in the Indian Army and his mother is a professor at St Aloysius College, Mangaluru.

Ananya H S, who secured 11th place, also cracked CLAT in her very first attempt. She is getting the news of her achievement only a day after her class 12 CBSE results were announced.

The student of National Public School, Mysuru, scored 95.4% in the commerce stream.

“I have been preparing for CLAT since the end of class 10. I was inspired to do law because of the many legal and crime TV shows that I used to watch,” she said. Ananya, too, used to travel to Bengaluru on weekends for coaching classes. She also wants to get a seat in NLSIU.

PG category

In the postgraduate category, Pranav Tripathi from Uttar Pradesh got the first rank with a score of 125 out of 150. All the top seven ranks were secured by students from UP.

The examination this year was conducted by Chanakya National Law University, Patna, on May 14.

The test is a gateway for students to get a seat in any of the top 18 participating institutions. The test was attempted by 47,108 students in the country, of which 1,333 were from Karnataka.
