Punam-ShantiExcerpts from the edited Interview –


Careers360: How should a law aspirant prepare for DU LLB entrance exam?
Punam Shanti:
 Candidates mainly need to emphasize on a number of subjects including General Knowledge, English, Logical Reasoning and Legal Aptitude. Candidates should have a balanced study-plan for the subjects as mentioned below:

  1. Plan a strategy: Law aspirants must schedule a study-plan. An intensive preparation strategy is needed which includes as many as 6 hours of regular studies to crack DU LLB entrance exam. Candidates must study at least two subjects every day and must practice at least one vocabulary / English and one reasoning exercise daily.

  2. Cover all previous years’ papers:  Candidates are advised to obtain previous years’ papers of all law entrance exams including DU, CLAT, AILET and LSAT India which are readily available. Solving past years’ papers and careful analyzing preparation level may help a law aspirant in knowing the type of questions in each area and the sections where you are lacking. The best way for ensuring time-management in the exam and getting right amount of confidence to crack the exam is to solve as many past papers and full-length mock papers as possible under strict time-limit and exam conditions.

Careers360:  What role do solving previous years’ question papers play in cracking DU LLB entrance exam?

Punam Shanti: Mock Tests for preparation are very helpful in scoring good marks in the entrance exams. Solving mock test papers is important but candidates must also analyze their performance each time as they progress. It helps in improving the speed and efficiency as well as helps you to identify your strength and weakness.

Careers360:  Could you share some important preparation strategies? What kind of books should aspirants refer to in the next 1 month?

Punam Shanti: For preparation in the next month aspirants must develop subject-wise strategy as mentioned below - 


Quantitative Aptitude – Candidates can choose any chapter. While revising any topic try to solve at least 10- 15 easy questions. Time-consuming questions can be kept for later after you have excelled in the easiest questions. Candidates can practice questions from ‘Quicker Maths by M. Tyra’ as the book is equipped with tips and tricks that should be adapted to solve questions speedily.


Reasoning – Candidates can score marks easily in this section as it is the easiest subject of all. This section includes questions from Coding-decoding, Direction, Blood Relation, Syllogism, Critical Reasoning, Series, Venn-Diagram, Analogy, Sitting Arrangement, Small Puzzle and Cube- Dice.  Aspirants can only score marks by practicing aggressively by solving different types of problems particularly puzzles based questions as it was included DU LLB 2015 question paper.


English – This section can be prepared as mentioned below –

  1. Candidates need to learn grammar with patience as it is a time taking subject. The best book for English grammar is wren and Martin and for those who prefer both English and Hindi language while learning ‘A mirror of common errors by Dr. Ashok Kumar Singh’ published by Students Friends

  2. Candidates are advised to read more and more books, novella or anything which interests them as I’ve seen students, not much good in grammar but they read a lot, and due to reading habit your vocabulary improves which in turn will be helpful in solving cloze  test, sentence rearrangement, fillers etc..

General Knowledge & Current Affairs – This section is very vast and includes topics from History, Geography, Indian Constitution, Economics, General Science and Current Affairs. Candidates are advised to pick topics like Modern History, Indian Geography, Basic Economics and a lot of Indian Constitution and Current Affairs for preparation. Candidates must put great emphasis on Indian Constitution and Current Affairs as it would be helpful in scoring good marks without consuming much time. Practice these topics regularly.

Besides, you are advised to read newspapers including The Hindu and The Indian Express as well as competitive exams’ magazine ‘Pratiyogita Darpan’. Moreover, you must watch news daily as it helps you catch current events effectively.

Legal Aptitude – This section includes legal reasoning as well as General Knowledge questions. Legal reasoning is not about knowledge but reasoning. Questions will be based on legal propositions (described in the paper), and a set of facts to which the said proposition has to be applied. In this section you need not apply your knowledge of law but what is written and known, if you attempt question with what your knowledge of law unreasonably, then you may end up choosing misleading and wrong options. Whereas, Legal GK/Legal Awareness section will test only on legal aptitude which is based on topics including Law of Torts, Law of Contact, and Criminal Law as well as Hindu/Muslim Marriage Act and Property Act. Basic understanding and practicing at least 10 previous years’ solved papers would be helpful.


Careers360: What are some of the keys points that an aspirant should keep in mind while preparing?

Punam Shanti:  Aspirants must refer to the facts as mentioned below -

  1. Indian Constitution, Current affairs and Reasoning sections would be helpful in scoring good marks without consuming much time, so work on these sections

  2. Practice as many as mock test paper as you could as it would be helpful in performing better on the D Day

  3. Don’t spend too much of time on single question, Time Management is very crucial factor here. If you are not able to understand a question in the first or second stance then it is wise to leave the question

  4. Work Hard and Stay Confident in your preparation phase as taking stress may take a toll on your confidence and test taking skills

  5. Be prepared to handle the unknown and the unexpected as it is important to be prepared for surprises and have the flexibility to deal with types of questions that you did not prepare for or more questions than you thought could come
