The exam will be conducted online and will be held in an examination centre. The full list of the exam centres will be notified by 1st July 2020. Candidates can register for the exam or withdraw their candidature by July 10th, 2020.
For LLM candidates, there will be no descriptive questions. They will have to answer 120 multiple choice questions in 2 hours. The Consortium will also conduct mock exams for all registered candidates to build familiarity with the test application and interface.
The decision to conduct the exam online was taken because of the prevailing pandemic situations. Candidates will be allowed to carry masks, 50 ml sanitizer, gloves etc inside the examination hall. The test centres will be disinfected regularly and thermo guns will be used to check the temperature of candidates. Only those candidates whose temperature is below 99.14 degrees will be allowed to enter the exam hall. Staff will be deployed for orderly movement and crowd management.
