The National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT) for admissions to undergraduate courses at the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru this year will be held in three sessions.

In order to address possible queries regarding the conduct of the NLAT, the University has put out an FAQ section on its website.

As stated by the University in this section

"UG NLAT 2020 will be conducted in three sessions in line with other large examinations. It is possible that in spite of all efforts to maintain equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of the question papers administered in different sessions may not exactly be the same."

In light of this, the University has decided to introduce a normalisation procedure.

"To overcome this, a Normalization procedure will be used to compile law scores across batches and ensure a level playing field where candidates are neither benefitted nor disadvantaged due to the difficulty level of the exam."

The exam is scheduled to be held on September 12.

Meanwhile, petitions have been filed challenging NLSIU's decision to hold a separate entrance exam instead of considering the Common Law Entrance Test (CLAT) scores for its admissions this year.

The plea moved by five students is likely to come up before the Jharkhand High Court tomorrow.

Another plea moved by former Vice-Chancellor of NLSIU, Professor Venkata Rao and an aggrieved parent is also likely to come up before the Supreme Court this week.
