Link between DU LLB Cutoff and Seat Intake Capacity

One of the major factors that lead to the determination of the DU LLB cutoff is the seats available in all the three DU law centres. A slight increase or decrease in the number of seats shifts the DU LLB cutoff upward or downward.

  1. An increase in the number of law seats will shift the DU LLB cutoff score downward. However, an increase in the number of applicants will neutralise the effect of the changes due to the increase in the number of seats
  2. A decrease in the number of seats will result in an increase in the cutoff marks.
  3. Even if the seat intake capacity remains the same, an increase might be witnessed due to increase in the number of candidates qualifying DU LLB

DU LLB Seat Intake Capacity Comparison

Participating Institutes Seat Intake 2020 Seat Intake 2019
Campus Law Centre (CLC) 1107 974
Law Centre 1 (LC1) 1106 974
Law Centre 2 (LC2) 1107 974
Total 3320 2922

Analysing the table above, candidates can expect a decrease in the DU LLB cut off in comparison with previous year only if the number of candidates remains the same.
