Structure of the DU LLB Entrance Exam :
1.Legal Aptitude and Constitution
2.General Awareness and Current Affairs
3.English including comprehension
Legal Aptitude and Constitution- As the exam is related to the legal aspect, its main focus is on the Legal Aptitude and Indian Polity. You should a strong understanding of the Indian Constitution, its structure, sections and schedules. Along with this, you need to have knowledge of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as well as Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC)
General Awareness and Current Affairs- This section is so vast that it is almost impossible to cover all the topics so you have to focus on some of the main topics that are:
-News relating to polity and legal system
English- This section covers the grammar and reading comprehension. This is one of the sections where you can save time as each question takes around 10 to 15 seconds. You could utilise the time saved in this section in the legal aptitude section.
Logical Reasoning- This section has coding-decoding, blood relation, direction, seating arrangement, venn diagram, critical reasoning etc. Most students can solve these questions easily but the main thing is the timing, the fast you are the better you’ll perform.
Elementary Arithmetic- This section constitutes only of 5% (5–7 questions) of the entire paper and it isn’t very tough. You should attempt this part at the last.
Strategy For Attempting The Paper: This may vary as per your preparation as most of the students attempt sections that they are strong at first and then move on to the other sections likewise. A general trick is to go for the GK section first. Then move on to the english section. After that tackle the legal section and at last finish the math section.
A lot of Students start their paper with the legal section, do this only if you are confident enough. Try to complete the GK and English section as fast as you can so that you can devote maximum time to the legal section. If you get stuck then go to the next question immediately.
Try to stay focused on the exam day, and have a proper sleep.
All the best
