The other important decision related to admission in the undergraduate admission programme, taken by admission committee of AU is that the last date to submit applications for admissions through Law Faculty Admission Test (LFAT) to the LLB three years as well 5 years programme has been extended by 5 more days, which means now the interested candidates can apply till 3 May 2014. This decision was taken following a corrigendum, mentioning that according to the government of India's gazette 2013, the age bar for LLB three years and five years has been removed.
