Banaras Law Entrance Test

BLAT Overview

BLAT (Banaras Hindu University Law Admission Test) is an entrance examination conducted by Banaras Hindu University (BHU) for admission to its undergraduate law programs. This comprehensive exam provides aspiring law students with the opportunity to secure a seat in BHU's esteemed Faculty of Law.

BLAT typically assesses candidates in various areas, including English comprehension, general awareness, legal aptitude, and current affairs. It is designed to evaluate a candidate's analytical and logical reasoning skills as well as their knowledge of legal principles and concepts. Successful performance in BLAT opens doors to the highly sought-after 3-year LL.B. program (Bachelor of Laws) and the integrated 5-year B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) program.

What is BLAT? 

BLAT (BLAST-like alignment tool) is a pairwise sequence alignment algorithm that was developed by Jim Kent at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) in the early 2000s to assist in the assembly and annotation of the human genome. It was designed primarily to decrease the time needed to align millions of mouse genomic reads and expressed sequence tags against the human genome sequence. The alignment tools of the time were not capable of performing these operations in a manner that would allow a regular update of the human genome assembly.
