In a surprise to the students preparing for the LLB entrance, the University has changed the syllabus and the pattern of the entrance examination for the LLB Course. According to this change, the number of questions for the offline exams has been reduced to 100 from 175. With the test scheduled to be held on 2nd July, the news comes as a shocker to the students who had been preparing according to the previous pattern.
According to the notification which came up on Saturday from the office of Dean Law Faculty, the new pattern will consist of 100 multiple choice questions on English language comprehension, general knowledge and current affairs, reasoning and analytical abilities and legal awareness in the aptitude test. This is in contrast to the previous pattern wherein a major portion used to be on Polity and Constitution which comprised of 50 questions in a paper of 175 questions. This section has been majorly scrapped in the new pattern.
As per a report in The Indian Express, a senior law faculty official mooted centralised University examination as the cause of the change. “As it is the university (which is) conducting the entrance along with other entrance based programmes so uniform question pattern was followed. We really cannot do anything about it”, he said.
While these changes are bound to create further anxiety in the student community, with less than 7 days to go for the exam, a current student of the Law Faculty does not see this the same way. In a dialogue with our correspondent, he opines “The university should have come up with these notifications earlier. However, this should not be a cause to panic as most of the aspirants do cover these newly introduced topics in the course of their preparations.”
This news comes in the light of the fact that the University has brought down the number of seats to 1,440 against 2,310 last year after concerns raised by the Bar Council Of India.
