Excerpts from the edited interview:


Careers360: How should a law aspirant prepare for DU LLB entrance exam?
Dr. (H. C.) Sonal Gupta: A DU LLB aspirant needs to go through the syllabus prescribed by the Delhi University and try to cover each and every topic. Aspirants need to be logical and rational in preparing for the law entrance exam. Generally, candidates stress more on Legal Aptitude, General Knowledge and Current Affairs but they should not overlook English comprehension and Reasoning sections as they help you fetch more marks easily.

Careers360: What role do solving previous years’ question papers play in cracking DU LLB entrance exam?
Dr. (H. C.) Sonal Gupta: Aspirants need to practice previous year question papers before appearing in DU LLB entrance exam. The question papers will cover the DU LLB Syllabus. Moreover, by solving the questions, candidates will learn to manage time, which is a key factor in scoring more in DU LLB entrance exam. The previous years’ question papers will also help in getting a variety of questions and knowing the actual paper pattern. Candidates must solve as many as question papers as possible after clarifying their concepts for each section.

What kind of preparation strategy should aspirants follow in the next one month?
Dr. (H. C.) Sonal Gupta: What I suggest is that candidates must keep track of events and surroundings in the next one month and note them. Moreover, they also need to go through series of events in past one year as they will comprise a large number of questions. With a month’s time, they need to revise more and more by solving sample papers and previous year papers. Candidates should avoid taking competitive pressures rather keep calm and work on improving weak areas. Besides, they must also strengthen their strong areas, where they can fetch more marks.

Careers360: Which books would you recommend for DU LLB preparation?
Dr. (H. C.) Sonal Gupta: All I suggest is the due diligence to be given on the totality of syllabus prescribed and solutions to the last 5-10 years of question papers. Candidates must not rely on single book for preparation as there is no book compiled with complete syllabus of DU LLB 2016 which may help the law aspirants. Also, various coaching institutes provide practice papers which may be helpful somewhat but just to guide them in right direction.


Careers360: What key points would you suggest a law aspirant for cracking DU LLB?
Dr. (H. C.) Sonal Gupta: Few key points, may be repeated but are as follows-

  1. Manage time – Candidates must work efficiently on time management as they need to solve questions speedily and accurately.

  2. Don't worry and stay calm – Candidates must not stress and should focus completely on practicing mock tests.

  3. Cover the entire syllabus – All sections of DU LLB 2016 including English Language and Comprehension, General Knowledge and Current Affairs, Legal Awareness and Aptitude as well as Analytical Ability must be practiced regularly.

  4. Don't stick to any one book – There are several books covering each subject of DU LLB 2016 and should study a variety of LLB entrance exam guides especially for Legal Aptitude section.

  5. Be logical while preparing – Syllabus of DU LLB 2016 is comprehensive so candidates must prepare in a logical manner for the law entrance exam.

  6. Think wisely – Despite covering entire syllabus, candidates may overlook on some crucial aspects while preparation so candidates must keep a track of preparation and must test themselves with mock test so as to analyze their weak areas.

Siddhi Shenoy 6th Jan, 2020

Hello Ayushi,

The CLAT exam is only for the candidates who wish to pursue undergraduate or 5 year integrated LLB course. If you want LLB, you have to answer CLAT, as your admission process is based upon the merit in this entrance exam. For more information about the DU LLB exam, you can refer https://law.careers360.com/articles/du-llb-eligibility-criteria
