NEW DELHI: India’s top law school, National Law School of India University today anyhow conducted its National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT) for admissions to BA LLB and LLM in different slots. As per the university, in each session, more than 94% of students have appeared. However, many students who appeared in the exam have expressed their dissatisfaction with the way the exam was conducted.

From technical glitches to verification failure, NLAT turned into a disaster for many. In the afternoon, a youtube video emerged guiding the potential lawyers how to do cheating NLAT 2020.

Meanwhile, after the NLAT UG, the university claimed that attendance in NLAT was over 94%, and compared it with CLAT 2019 where the attendance was just over 90%.

Telegram: A platform where students collaborated

NLAT was open. Questions were being shared in various Telegram groups. The students were sharing their cheating tactics with each other in order to give a helping hand to those who were yet to appear in the exam. Some of the screenshots and photos we collected from various sources are shown below.





Twitter reactions

After each session, the students who appear in the exam took to twitter to express their dissatisfaction with the exam. Many claimed that they were not even able to log in for NLAT 2020 on account of verification failure.

Those who appeared in NLAT 2020 faced difficulties in completing the test. Many were not even able to complete the test and were logged out before they could submit the test.

Log in failure and video recording

One of the most common issues was technical glitches

Many couldn't submit their test

Some are asking NLSIU to reschedule NLAT 2020

NLSIU took a bold step by pulling out from CLAT at the last moment. However, the university's decision seems to have backfired as they now have to answer so many questions.

Even after conducting NLAT 2020, the university cannot declare result and admission list. Supreme Court had made it clear that even of the university conducts NLAT 2020, the result declaration will be subject to the Court's decision in an ongoing a plea filed by former vice chancellor Professor R Venkata Rao of NLSIU and a parent of the aspirant challenging the university's decision to conduct a separate test.
