New Delhi: Punjab University has released new admission schedules for PU LLB 2020 and PU BA LLB 2020, with all the existing dates including those pertaining to conduct of entrance exam, application submission last date, and declaration of result being changed. The PU BA LLB 2020 entrance exam will now be conducted on October 4 (instead of July 30), whereas the PU LLB 2020 exam will be administered on October 22 (in place of July 25).

Also as per new dates, the application form of PU BA LLB 2020 can be submitted till September 19, while for PU LLB 2020 application forms applications will be accepted till October 1.

Why are PU BA LLB and PU LLB 2020 dates being changed?

The conducting authority of the two exams, Punjab University hasn’t specified any specific reasons for changes in the exam schedules. But still it is abundantly clear that the move is aimed at ensuring the safety and well being of students and exam officials, given the COVID-19 situation remains grim.

As a matter of fact, both these exams are conducted in offline centre-based mode, which in the given pandemic situation is out of the equation. So, the hands of exam officials were practically tied and they had no option but to postpone the exams, while hoping the situation will normalise by October, the new timeline for the two exams.

Is change in mode of exam a possibility?

As of now no so such plans are in the offing. Also, the fact that the exams have been pushed back to October will give exam officials enough elbow room and time to make arrangements for an offline exam.

That being said, everything will depend on how the COVID-19 situation evolves over the next few months. If the pandemic slows down, things will be back to normal. But if instead the rate of infection increases, all options, including remote proctored testing (RPT) will have to be explored.
