5 Tips For Selecting The Best Law Entrance Coaching

The DU LLB exam is something we’ve seen many students confused about. In this article, we hope to dispel all the common myths and misconceptions that exist in the mind of any student regarding this popular entrance exam. In addition to that, we will also offer some important preparation tips, as well as strategies that we have been very effective in the past when it comes to cracking the DU LLB entrance exam.

First of all, you should know that the DU LLB entrance exam is only for admission to the Faculty of Law of the University of Delhi. The University of Delhi offers only 3 years of LLB degrees, which means you must graduate or become a graduate to consider writing the DU LLB exam. It does not matter in which stream you graduate. The only criterion that DU has is that you must graduate from a recognized university and you should have obtained more than 50% in total in your graduate degree.

The DU LLB exam has a program concentration that is different from other entrance exams to the Law. It focuses largely on four main areas: Legal aptitude, Constitution of India (Policy with a focus on legal aspects), GK and Current affairs. We will discuss this in more detail in the tips below, but remember that for this test, the preparation style and focus topics must be different.

Below, we provide some important tips and preparation strategies that will be very useful as a student in your studies for the DU LLB 2017 entrance exam:

  • DO NOT neglect Legal Ability and the Constitution: the DU LLB exam has a strong focus on Legal Aptitude and Indian Politics, especially in regard to legal aspects. This is not surprising, and it is highly anticipated, after all, it is an admission exam to enter one of the most important graduate schools in India, which has numerous judges of the Supreme Court and the High Court as ex students. This means that you should try to develop a good understanding of the Indian Constitution, its structure, sections and schedules. In addition, you should also have a good overview of the CPI and the CrPC. For most students, this will be completely new content. The Polity part may still be familiar to those who prepared for the Civil Services or SSC exams, but for others this will require detailed and intense study.
  • GK and Current Affairs: Unfortunately, there is no defined curriculum for this area of the document. Anyone who says they will prepare him for 100% of the questions asked in the GK and Current Affairs section is lying! If you trust 80-85% of the questions asked in the GK /, you should consider that your preparation is excellent. So, what should one do? How will a student prepare for such a mysterious section? The answer is available in a careful analysis of the documents of past years. We have done this in the last decade and we have observed some patterns that I will share with you. It is known that these are the favorite areas for examiners and where questions will definitely be asked. Some important things you should cover are:
  • Important awards every year: sports, science, literature and arts
  • The principal agencies of the United Nations, their functions and their locations
  • You must have a good description of the geography and history of India
  • Physical geography, science and environment
  • Major events in the area of the Constitution of India or the justice system

For current issues, choose one or two reliable sources and follow them honestly. This is better and more systematic than trying to cover as many sources as possible.

  • Basic arithmetic: Many students feel that their math is too weak and have heard that this is an important part of the DU LLB test. Then they have no confidence when they approach the newspaper. Actually, the DU LLB exam has a very small math component, maybe 5 to 7 questions out of a total of 175. These are usually simple questions based on class X level concepts. In fact, if Maths is not your forte, then you can even consider skipping preparation for that section altogether. There are probably many other areas where the returns on your efforts will be much greater.

Books for preparation: there are a number of books commonly available in bookstores that cover the preparation for entry to DU LLB. However, I would advise a bit of caution when choosing to exclusively prepare these books. In our experience, most of the books available are not of good quality and contain several errors, especially in the very important Legal Aptitude and GK sections. This is of crucial importance,that you search for an institute offering you good subject material for your preparation.
