  1. is it confirmed that it’s june or is there a possibility of it being on 19th may?????
    because instead of a detailed notification all they have let out now is a ticker,,,,june is gonna be way too late

  2. NLUO has no domicile seats . NLUO for last two years has come with brilliant question papers last two years . NLUO question papers were far more better than clat papers for last two years . compare them and know for yourself .
