can a disable student with open board in 10th 83% percent and regular +2 in pseb with 85% marks can get admission into ba llb in panjab univ

Mahima Student Expert 7th Aug, 2019


Admission in Panjab University is not only done based on your marks in Class 12th boards. For admission to the BA LLB course marks for both entrance exam and 12th marks are to be considered. The final merit list had been based on the combined score. Hence your 12th marks seem decent and rest would depend on the entrance score. As the combined ranks are also out you can let me know that for a better estimate.

Best of luck
