The Andhra Pradesh government clarified that there will be no upper age limit for Andhra Pradesh LAWCET (AP LAWCET) 2018 examination. Earlier, Bar Council of India (BCI) announced that the upper age limit for the candidates applying for three-year LLB course is 30 and five-year LLB course is 20 years.
However, the government of Andhra Pradesh was not satisfied with the decision of BCI and filed a petition in High Court seeking the roll-back of the age limit. On the other hand, the High Court also supported the state government and clarified that imposing an age limit for LLB course is not correct.
The government of Andhra Pradesh decided that there will be no age limit for AP LAWCET 2018. One of the officials associated with AP LAWCET explained that if the judgement of Supreme Court is not in favour of AP government, the admission process will be carried out as per the directions of Supreme Court.
As of now, all the eligible candidates, irrespective of age, can apply for AP LAWCET 2018. The decision of Andhra Pradesh government did not go well with most of the law aspirants. One of the students expressed that the students have to pay the examination fee which will go waste if the decision of Supreme Court is not favorable.
