Entrance examinations are a common feature in India. Candidates are selected for reputed courses like MBA, Engineering, Technology and Fashion on the basis of their performance in these tests. And, as law is another competitive field, many colleges/ universities conduct separate entrance exams to shortlist prospective candidates. The patterns and eligibility criteria for a large number of law entrance tests in India are pretty similar.
