In a first, Delhi University will be conducting DU LLB 2016 Entrance Exam in as many as 5 cities of India, besides national capital where the central university is located, thus bringing convenience to DU law aspirants from far southern, western and eastern regions of India. Earlier, DU law aspirants had to appear for the entrance exam in Delhi only. The test cities outside Delhi include Ahmedabad, Chennai, Jammu, Kolkata and Varanasi.

The decision has been taken by a standing committee of DU Admission Council comprising 18 members. “The other five centres are Ahmedabad, Chennai, Jammu, Kolkata and Varanasi,” said one of the committee members.

Moreover, this year the standing committee has also nodded to offer the OBC candidates, a 10% relaxation as compared to General category candidates in the cut-off marks of DU LLB 2016 Exam. One of the committee members said, “The cut-off marks for OBC candidates will be upto 10 percent lower than that for General category. If the cut-off is 60% for General category candidates, the OBC candidates will need to secure at least 54%.”

The University admission committee also plans to finalize the registrations by May 15, 2016 and DU LLB 2016 Entrance Exam along with other PG entrances will be conducted in the first week of June. However, there is no official announcement over beginning date of the applications. Aspirants will have to fill DU LLB 2016 Applications in online mode only. The application fee for DU LLB 2016 Entrance Exam as well as other PG programmes will be Rs. 500 for General and OBC candidates and Rs. 250 for SC/ST and other reserved categories including PwD.

Is it necessary to give clat exam to get admission in DU colleges or can we get admission only by giving DU enterance exam?

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

Ameya Narendra Parkar 5th Jan, 2020
Dear Tanmay,
Yes Delhi University offers Sports Quota.
Under Sports and ECA quota, University of Delhi offers not more than 5% reservation. Further, Delhi University (DU) gives colleges the freedom to decide the actual number of seats that are to be filled under sports quota (not more than 5%).
These seats are determined on the basis of facilities available, requirement of the College as well as other relevant factors. Information regarding sports quota seats alongwith requirement of sportspersons in different Games/ Sports with the respective Position/ Event / Weight Category are provided by DU colleges on their official website as well as their notice board.

I hope this information helps you
All the best
