LAT 2021 Preparation Tips

- Practice last years' question papers. Take mock-test sessions wherein you finish a question paper within the same time duration as that of the exam. Many candidates mistake simply skimming through the sample papers instead of practising them. But, solving these question papers will not only teach candidates how to solve tricky questions but will also habituate them to the pattern, which can aid in time managent.

LAT is an entrance exam conducted by the Allahabad University for admission into 3 years LLB course .According to last year cutoff if you belong to general category you need a minimum of 170+ . In case you belong to reserved categories , unless you belong to ST category, you will need a minimum score of 150 to stand a chance for admission. For ST category there is no cutoff score hence all candidates are eligible.Hence,if you are an ST candidate then yes you have a chance but otherwise it is not possible as you have scored below the cutoff score.

LAT is an entrance exam conducted by Allahabad University for the 3 year LLB program. The cutoffs vary every year based on factors like number of seats and number of candidates writing the exam.The exact admission possibility cannot be predicted by if you have scored fairly above the expected cutoff , then you will get a decent college,if you do not get in the first round,then surely you will get in the last round . Since you have not mentioned your category I will list out previous year cutoff trend for all category. If you belong to general category then you need 170-180+ to get the desired college. If you are an SC or OBC candidate then 150+ is the safe score,on the other hand for ST category there is no minimum score needed so based on seat availability and your score compared to other applicants in the category ,you will secure admission in a college ,so attend the counselling to see your options.
All the best
