The students of National Law School India, Bangalore, and along with other NLU student's bodies, have come together to help the students who are appearing for NLAT online examinations and who don't have an access to computer systems, laptops, and the basic internet facility or any other technical equipment which are a necessary and most basic requirement for online examination.
This step was taken because the decision of NLSUI to conduct its own entrance examination that is NLAT for this year for the process of admissions has drawn various criticism by the applicants and students because there are many aspirants who do not have the necessary technical requirements which would be needed to conduct and to write the online examination and because of the multiple concerns raised by the students which are regarding the accessibility of NLAT especially in the concern given to the technical requirements; students body have made an email id which students could reach out for help and also have generated a Google form regarding the same. Aspirants can reach out to authorities for help and access to the help which is provided by the students' body and the authorities.
The concerns were raised because many students live in areas where there is no internet facility but still want to appear for the examination. It has been decided to keep the test online because the pandemic across the globe mainly online examinations are being conducted, else they would have travel to the respective examination centers.
Many students' bodies have already started this initiative to ensure that every student is having technical equipment which would be helpful for the students for study basis and to conduct extracurricular activities which would be beneficial for the student as well as the college and the students are requested to reach the authority as soon as possible because it may take a little long time to process the logistics. This step was taken because NLAT shall be a 'home-based' examination and for the conduction of the same examination there would be a basic necessity of laptop and internet services and many do not have these services and hence these students will not be able to conduct the examination.
