The entrance exam for the Bachelor of Law (LLB) at the Delhi University is scheduled on July 2 and just a week before the exam, the university changed the exam pattern which left the students, who are preparing for the exam in shock.
The students were informed about the change in the syllabus through a notification released by the Dean Law Faculty. According to the new pattern, there will now be 100 multiple choice questions from English language comprehension, general knowledge and current affairs, reasoning and analytical abilities, legal awareness, and aptitude in the test.
Originally under the old pattern there were 175 questions and major part of it was from polity and constitution, which comprises of 200 marks and approximately 50 questions. Now university has completely removed the section.
A senior law faculty, who did not wish to be named, said "As it is the university conducting the entrance along with other entrance based programs so uniform question pattern was followed. We really cannot do anything about it".
Students on the other hand are in fix and said that university could have notified them about the change sooner. .“There is already so much competition, and now the change of exam pattern is making me anxious. I am worried what reasoning and analytical ability is going to be about,” said Sana Seth, an applicant to the LLB program. .“There is already so much competition, and now the change of exam pattern is making me anxious.

According to the students who have appeared for the test earlier said that polity and constitution section was the most scoring part of the test. “It is not a wise step by the authorities to change pattern at this stage,” said Tarun Narang, who graduated from the Campus Law Centre this year.
