Twenty seats of bachelor of legislative law (LLB) at Patna Law College are vacant even after a two-month delay in the start of the course.
Sources attributed the delay to two entrance tests and admission-related works that had to be completed by the college. The third merit list is yet to be announced.
“The (admission) procedure should have started earlier. Most of the academic sessions are running late at the university. Examinations of several courses, such as BCom, continued till June and therefore the university could not give us time,” law college principal Rakesh Verma said.
Entrance tests to the LLB course are being conducted since 2009. This year, two entrance tests had to be conducted after the first test, which was held on August 5, was cancelled.
On how will the college administration make up for the delay, Verma said: “We will organise extra classes for those who have missed the initial ones.”
Rajesh Kumar, whose name featured in the first list, said: “We will have to suffer a lot. Not only will the examinations get delayed, we will obtain the degrees late as well.”
Another student said: “The authorities might say that they will organise extra classes but I have my doubts about it.”
