Prep Tips

It important that the candidate prepares for the exam properly since it enables them to take admission in one of the Delhi's highly coveted law schools. The Faculty of Law, University of Delhi is considered to be exceedingly prestigious for pursuing law. If the candidate is taking coaching for the DU LLB exam then they should stick to the timeline as set by the coaching institute. There are numerous coaching institutes in and around Delhi that provide for quality coaching and training.
Engaging with a coaching institute can prove to be extremely fruitful for many people who need the proper guidance to ace the test. There are several benefits of engaging a coaching institute. Due to structured teaching pattern and continuous practice tests conducted, on average the accuracy of the candidate increases. Self study combined with coaching is more effective over time because of the individual attention that can be provided in a coaching centre. The classes uplift two categories of students, ones who lack motivation and discipline to self prepare and students who struggle with basics or are from another field that like commerce and struggle with reading speed. The attention and care given by these institutes bring them to par with students who have been preparing and already have a knack for it. The instructors are usually seasoned professionals thus they bring more quality to the teaching and can promptly solve doubts.

Another important thing that coaching institutes help the candidate is the study material. Many coaching institutes provide for vetted and comprehensive study material for the DU LLB exam which can help the candidate crack the test. There are many books and articles available that help, but the study material provided by coaching centres in often recent and thoroughly vetted is according to the latest syllabus guidelines thus helping the candidate save time by not having to look at different places for the right study material.

Thus it is important the candidate chooses a coaching centre which is well known and has a good track record in terms of the previous candidates cracking the DU LLB exam and scoring well. The candidates should be clear with their concepts; they should practice regularly, keep timely goals, keep a track of their progress and revise on a regular basis. They should take ample mock tests and solve as many previous years question papers as they can since it will help them brush up on their skills and find their weaknesses. The candidates can use these mock tests to strengthen their weak points and improve their time management so that no question is left unanswered during the actual DU LLB exam.

There are a couple of things that the candidate should keep in mind for the exam day. They should make sure that they have read up on all the instructions as would have been mentioned in their Admit Card which has to be downloaded from their website. All the relevant details of the test (time, venue) are mentioned on the admit card. They should reach the test centre on time so that they do not take unnecessary stress. Along with the admit card, they should carry all their requisite documents along with the required photo ID proof as impersonation is considered to be a serious offence and may attract severe punishment. Candidates should not talk to anyone once inside the examination hall as any candidate found following any unfair means will be debarred from appearing in the DU LLB exam.

Finally the candidates should be calm and composed before the examination since they have to complete all the questions within a limited time frame. It is important to be positive and focused. A little meditation before the exam will help the candidate calm his/ her nerves and most importantly, they should not worry above their rank or score at all. The candidate should give their best and be confident in their preparation as they know that they have burnt that midnight oil to reach this stage. As long as the candidate has put in the hard work and efforts with all sincerity, the results will show.
