Hyderabad: Admissions into law courses through the Law Common Entrance Test (LAWCET) and PG LAWCET are expected to finally come to a logical end soon, after the results were originally announced on June 14.

The Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) on Friday announced the admission schedule for candidates who have qualified in the entrance exams for UG and PG law courses for the academic year 2018-19 after holding the LAWCET admission committee meeting here.

The certificate verification will commence from October 22 and conclude on October 25. In case of candidates belonging to NCC/CAP/PH, the certificate verification will be on October 24 and 25. Candidates who take part in the verification of certificates can exercise their choice of web options from October 23 to 27.

The entrance examination for admission into three-year, five-year and PG law courses was conducted by Osmania University on behalf of the TSCHE on May 25. Thought the results were announced on June 14, the delay in issuance list of affiliated colleges by the Bar Council of India had put admissions on hold.

For the three-year course, 12,960 candidates had appeared, out of which 89.22 per cent qualified. Similarly, in the five-year course, 64.42 per cent of the 3,727 candidates qualified. For PG LAWCET, 1,860 candidates took the test and 98.33 per cent cleared it.

A total of 2,880 seats in LLB, 968 in LLB-five year course and 553 in LLM courses in 21 law colleges, including 17 private and four universities, are up for grabs this year. A detailed notification will be made available on the web site http://lawcetadm.tsche.ac.in and http://lawcet.tsche.ac.in.
