Hello all respected members,

Actually  my friend has a P.G. Degree with 60% but his graduation percentage is below 45%. In this situation can he take admission in LLB on the basis of his Post - Graduation?

Is he eligible for LLB.

Some universities allowing students with 40% for admission into LL.B .  However, your friend has been completed her/his PG degree.  So she/he should have completed 21 years of age.  The bar council of India has put age limit of 21 years for admission into LL.B course.  You are advised to look at this initially.

 For appearing in judicial service examination one should be graduate with law degree. I think no percentage of marks obtained is prescribed. To my knowledge even no percentage is prescribed for IAS exam though age limit is.

Recently, an old lady in her eighties appeared for SSC exam. There is no time limit for acquiring knowledge. Why should there be restriction of age and percentage? What is sought to be achieved by these restrictions. At the most, an entrance test can be held. Is the legal profession overflowing with lawyers that BCI wants restrictions? It is the caliber that matters not age and percentage.
