DU LLM Essential Exam Checklist

Delhi University LLM Admissions DUET 2018 Mock Tests Previous Question Papers Sample Papers

Introduction

Of all the creatively named entrance exams, we quite like the ‘DUET’ – the Delhi University Entrance Test. It is catchy, it is trendy and it is happening soon. The DU LLM entrance is part of the DUET.

We compiled this checklist for students who will be taking the DU LLM exam, but it is useful most other exams as well.  These tips may seem very basic, but it is usually the basics that get missed out and it is always helpful to have an easy checklist to cover all the essentials.

Go through this checklist at least two days before your exam and keep everything handy – i.e. take the prints etc.

First all, before we get to the list, remember – Get a Good Night’s Sleep before your exam.  Relax, have a light dinner and sleep early. You will wake up fresh and sharp on the day of the exam.

While last minute cramming and a ‘night-out’ before the exam is often the norm; a tired and sleepless brain is not a good idea. Often, students complain that they have difficulty falling asleep the night before any big exam or interview. This is absolutely natural. To accommodate for the difficulty in falling asleep, hit the bed early – It makes a lot of difference.

The Do’s

(1) Take a print out of the Admit Card – at least a day or two before the exam.
Download the admit card from the official website and take at least two prints or copies.  One can be carried along with you and one can be retained in your bag or in your vehicle – as a backup. Do not wait till the last minute to take prints.

(2) Wear comfortable and casual cotton clothes.
The exam centers may not be very comfortable and may not even have ceiling fans. So wear loose cotton clothes which will keep you comfortable during the exam. For those students who have not taken any exam recently – Remember, you have to sit in one place for two hours; so comfortable clothes make a lot of difference.

(3) Carry your official Photo ID card
Carry an approved Photo ID card with you. E.g. Aadhaar card, Passport, Driving license.
Confirm that the document you are carrying is accepted as a Photo ID proof.

(4) Carry a wrist watch
Even if you are not in the habit of wearing a wrist watch regularly, do wear one on the day of your Exam.
While there will be a timer / clock on the screen, a wrist watch is always a good bet – so wear your ‘Lucky’ watch to the exam.

(5) Carry your registration documents
For any eventualities, we recommend that you should carry a copy of your registration details, acknowledgement and the documents you had submitted at the time of registration.

Before the exam commences, you should tear / shred these papers if they are no longer necessary.

(6) Carry a handkerchief
Tissue papers may or may not be allowed into the exam center (Better avoid carrying any type of paper)

So carry a handkerchief for personal hygiene.

(7) Take a Taxi or an Auto rickshaw!
Remember, the exam center parking may be full on the day of the exam. Unless you are sure of finding a suitable parking for your own vehicle, it makes sense to arrive in a Taxi or an Auto rickshaw.

This way you will not have to worry about parking or safety of your vehicle and focus on the exam.

If you need to take your own vehicle, find a safe parking place using Google Maps or just park in a nearby Mall or Shopping complex and take an auto from there.

(8) Reach the exam center at least 30 Minutes in Advance
City traffic can be bad! And roads in India are unpredictable. Double check the exam timings and leave early. Reach well in time to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed before the exam.

If it normally takes one hour to reach the exam center, leave home at least with a one hour additional buffer. You can always do some last minute revision at the exam center.

Check your seat number / room number on the notice board. You may also need to visit the restroom before stepping into the exam hall.

(9) Consider answering all the questions – Very Important !
While there is 1/4th negative marking, make an informed guess wherever you can.

For example, if there are four questions, each with 1 mark for a right answer, but minus 1/4th mark for a wrong answer, you will have to get all the four questions wrong to lose 1 mark. However, even if you get one question right and three wrong, you will still have a +1/4th mark in your kitty.

(10) Carry a small piece of old cloth with you
A remark that we heard from some students is that the desks in the exam center were quite dusty. Carry a small piece of old cloth or a old kerchief to wipe the desk and the bench before you sit.

(11) Escalate immediately !
In the light of the challenges mentioned by the candidates who appeared in the CLAT exam (Hanging PCs, Questions not displayed correctly etc.), do not wait for too long if you are facing any difficulty with your PC or with the test screens. Call the invigilator immediately and make note of any specific time that you have lost.

The Don’ts

(1) Do Not Carry Mobiles or Other Electronic Gadgets
The DU LLM Entrance / DUET rules specify that computing devices, mobile phones and electronic gadgets are not allowed into the exam center.

There may not be any provision for safe-keeping of your phones and gadgets outside the exam hall. We recommend that you can leave all electronic devices at home or in your vehicle, for the duration of the exam.

(2) Do Not copy or help others copy in the exam.
Remember, if you fail to clear, you can always take the exam the next year or there are other exams to conquer; but if you are debarred for malpractice, you may not be able to take the exam again or at least for a few years.  Don’t risk it!

Also, the exam questions are randomized for everyone; so it is not possible to blindly copy from someone else’s screen. Don’t even try it!
