Im bcom 5 th sem student can i give this exam for llb entrance

Shareef 10th Feb, 2020

You need to pass your graduate exam from University of Delhi or an equivalent University for DU LLB. General Category Students should score at least 50% marks in the qualifying exam and OBC,SC,ST students should score atleast 40%. The exam dates are between 2nd and 9th July. If you are in your 5th semester now, you still have to wait because you have still more than 6 months to complete the course. You should be able to complete the course atleast by the time of admission. But in your case, you will not be able to complete your B.Com and so you cannot write DU LLB this session.

Hii Gul!
You need not be confused about the dates of the DU LLB examination. You will be notified when the time comes. You will also get the proper details in your admit card. For now, the dates are decided as 2 June to 9 June. Your exam may fall on one of the days or may be divided into several days. You will eventually come to know. You can refer the following link for more details-

sir , this year my graduation is appearing from mjpru. And also i m qualified 12th from ALLAHBAD board. So how should i prepare for DU LLB EXAM to get good marks plz give me rgt suggestion.

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 18th Feb, 2020

There are four sections in DU LLB Entrance Examination-  English language, analytical skills, legal awareness  and aptitude, general knowledge and current affairs.

In English language section, there will be questions from grammar, unseen passage,  antonyms-synonyms, fill in the blanks etc. The best way to prepare is to refer any comprehensive grammar book and read any one english newspaper daily.

Analytical skills section includes maths, reasoning, aptitude etc. For this, you should revise maths books of class V to X. Also there will be questions from seat arrangement, blood relation, speed, time and distance, coding decoding, syllogism etc.

Universal DU LLB guide is considered very helpful for both legal awareness and legal aptitude sections. You should try to complete the entire legal aptitude section.

Reading newspapers regularly will extremely help you to be aware of the current affairs. For general knowledge section, you can refer to these books- Manorama Year book, India Year Book etc.

If possible you should make a proper study plan and do accordingly. There are many mock tests booklets available in the market, choose any one of them and start solving the mock papers. Solving previous year papers will help you to get accustomed.
