DU LLB Overall Analysis
- Delhi University generally conducts the DU LLB exam in the month of June of every year.
- The DU LLB entrance is a 2 hour long paper with a total of 100 objective type multiple choice questions to be answered.
- The paper includes 5 sections as mathematics, Legal aptitude, Logical Reasoning, General Knowledge, English.
- Many students feel that their Math is too weak, and they have heard that this is an important part of the DU LLB exam. So they do not have confidence while approaching the paper.
- In reality, the DU LLB exam has a very small component of Math – perhaps 9 to 10 questions out of a total of 100. These are usually simple questions based on Class X level concepts.
- In fact, if Maths is your bugbear then you can even safely consider skipping preparation for that section altogether.
- There are probably many other areas where the returns for your efforts will be much higher.
- The questions will be based on 10+2 level. The English section will comprise of questions related to jumbled words/sentences, fill in the blanks, incorrect sentences, unseen passages, essay-writing etc. This section is to evaluate the reading and writing skills of the candidate.
- Although this section is considered relatively “difficult”, the weightage of this section makes it important for you to give it special attention.
- Strong understanding of the basics and dedicated practice can help you boost your DU LLB score.
- The DU LLB exam has a strong focus on Legal Aptitude and Indian Polity, especially as it relates to the legal aspects.
- This is not surprising, and is very much to be expected – after all, it is an entrance exam for admission in one of India’s most premier 3-year LLB schools, which counts numerous Supreme Court and High Court judges as its alumni.
- This means that you should aim to develop a good understanding of the Indian Constitution, its structure, sections and schedules.
- Further, you should also have a good overview of the IPC and the CrPC. For most students, this is going to be completely new content.
- The Polity part might still be familiar for those who prepared for Civil Services or SSC exams, but for others this will require detailed and intense study.
GK and Current Affairs
- Unfortunately, there is no defined syllabus for this area of the paper.
- If you are confident of 80-85% of the questions asked in the GK/Current Affairs section, you should consider your preparation excellent.
- We have done this over the last decade, and have observed a few patterns that I will share with you. These are known to be favourite areas for the examiners and from where questions will definitely be asked. Some important things you should certainly cover are:
- Important awards each year – sports, science, literature and arts
- Major UN bodies, their functions and their locations
- You should have a good overview of Indian geography and history
- Physical geography, science and environment
- Important happenings in the area of the Indian Constitution or Justice system
- For Current Affairs, pick one or two reliable sources and sincerely follow them. This is better and more systematic than trying to cover as many sources as possible.
