Delhi Univesity has announced a change in test pattern of Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at a time when not only a week is left in the entrance exam. The exam of LLB will be conducted on July 2 and the sudden announcement by the University has left students in confusion as they were preparing for the exam as per the previous pattern.
As per a report in The Indian Express, a senior official on the change in the entrance exam said that entrance test this year is being conducted by the University. “As it is the university conducting the entrance along with other entrance based programmes so uniform question pattern was followed. We really cannot do anything about it”.
The students were informed about the change through a notification issued by the Dean Law Faculty on Saturday. The new pattern will consist of 100 multiple choice questions on English language comprehension, general knowledge, current affairs, reasoning and analytical abilities, legal awareness, aptitude in the test.
The old pattern had a total of 175 questions and the majority of the questions used to be on polity and constitution and as per the new pattern now no question will be asked from this section.
Law aspirants who were preparing for the exam with the old pattern said that if University had to make changes it could have been done earlier not just a week before the examination. Sana Seth, an applicant to the LLB programme, “There is already so much competition, and now the change of exam pattern is making me anxious. I am worried what reasoning and analytical ability is going to be about”.
DU will likely to cut down the number of seats as earlier the Bar Council of India (BCI) had said that University cannot admit more than 1,440 students at its three centres. Last year as many 2310 students were admitted in this course.
