All India Entrance Test and Rank List
The ET will carry a maximum of 200 marks. It seeks to asses the candidateâ€™s aptitude to pursue law as a profession or a discipline, capacity to express in English language and give descriptive and analytical answers to questions, and breadth of general knowledge. A Rank List will be prepared, based on the candidatesâ€™ performance in the ET, and in cases of equality the rank will be resolved on the basis of +2 examination results failing which by draw of lots.
The candidates selected through the test will have to undergo an interview. The interview panel shall have full discretion to adjudge the general suitability of a candidate for admission.
Subject to further review by University authorities, the University proposes to admit up to and not exceeding 160 students this year. However it has the discretion to determine a lower intake level depending on the comparative merits of available candidates or for any other operational reasons. 15% of the seats will be reserved for S.C. candidates, 7.5% for S.T. candidates, 3% for physically disabled candidates and 10% for candidates belonging to the State of Gujarat. A horizontal reservation of 30% of seats has also been made in favour of girl students, cutting across all the above categories (There will be no special reservation for foreign candidates or NRI candidates). Should any of these quotas stand unfilled, the seats so unfilled will then be available for candidates from the Wait List.
The Wait List shall be part of the general Rank List that stays in place after the regular selection process. It shall lapse 15 days after the last date prescribed for admission through regular selection process.
The University reserves the right not to offer any one stream of (B.A./B.Sc./B.Com.) LL.B. (Honours) Programme if a sufficient number of students have not been found qualified for the stream. Allocation of streams will be strictly based on the performance of students in the first two semesters. Thus a candidateâ€™s preference for a stream expressed in the Application Form will not bind the University to offer admission into the preferred stream.
