However, there is no doubt that DU has churned out some of the brightest and most famous lawyers of India, and also boasts of one of the best faculty in the country, easily comparable on this parameter with any national law university.

There is also negative marking, with each wrong answer resulting in a deduction of 1 mark. The exam comprises of questions that cover English language comprehension, analytical skills, legal education, legal awareness and general knowledge. Maximum weightage is carried by the section on general knowledge, specifically by questions on current affairs. With the paper in total being for 700 marks, the cut-offs usually fall between 300-450 marks.
