The decision to change the exam date was taken by BHU officials on February 16. After the BLAT 2017 exam date was announced on February 3, Careers360 had written to BHU officials, apprising them of students’ concern towards the clashing of the two important exams. After official deliberations on the issue, the BHU officials have now informed Careers360 that the BA LLB entrance test of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has been rescheduled and it will now be conducted on May 17 and not on the earlier date of May 14, 2017.

 

“BLAT 2017 will be held on May 17 between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm and not on 14th May, 2017,” BHU Registrar Dr V K Singh told Careers360.

 

The Common Law Admission Test date however remains unchanged, and shall be held on May 14, 2017.

 

Earlier both the exam conducting bodies (BHU on behalf of BLAT 2017 and CNLU Patna on behalf of CLAT Committee) had announced to conduct their respective law entrance examinations on May 14, 2017. While Chanakya National Law University Patna, which is the exam conducting body for CLAT this year, had announced CLAT 2017 on December 25, 2016, BHU announced BLAT 2017 on the same date on February 2, making it impossible for law aspirants to appear for both the law entrance examinations on the same date, though scheduled in different time slots.

 

The clash of examination dates had left thousands of law aspirants confused as they landed in dilemma on choosing one of the two exams.

CLAT 2017 is being conducted on May 14 for admissions to the five-year integrated law programmes offered at 18 National Law Universities (NLUs) including Maharashtra National Law University Nagpur that joined the CLAT Committee this year.
