If you play in an ensemble that would be a huge issue. If you're playing by yourself, it makes it a little better. +/- 20 is still a lot, maybe try to see if you can get it to within +/- 10?

Some notes are just sharp/flat on the clarinet, and you will need to adjust your embouchure. Like throat tones (notes from G#4 to Bb4) are usually sharp, so you can actually put some extra fingers down to flatten the pitch, and make the sound better as well.
