will ews certificate help me with the cut off scores, will the cut. off be less for ews category students in MH cet Law...?? does mh law cet accept ews certificate??

anurag khanna 3rd May, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Central government started the reservation quota for Economically Weaker Section of General category. According to this quota every authorized institution in India will reserve some seats for EWS candidates.

Cut-offs are also slightly less in comparison to General category. MH Law CET also accepts EWS certificate.

I hope this answer helps you.

Good Luck!!


Can anyone kindly suggest me apps and YouTube videos for mh cet law 5 yrs to pursue good marks. Thank you

Shareef 17th Apr, 2020
There's no video or app which will have full syllabus in one thing. You need to refer many of the video's to understand the concept. So, first make yourself clear with that syllabus that you will have for examination. Then go for books if you have or search for each particular topic you aren't understanding to make yourself clear. Here below you will get the syllabus of the examination.

which book is suitable for mhcet law 3 years?

rajaman9300_7946061 Student Expert 15th Apr, 2020

For Legal Aptitude, just follow "Indian Polity" by Laxmikant and Previous Year CLAT Papers.

For English: Verbal and Non verbal Ability by TMH PUB.(Arun Sharma).

For General Knowledge you can read NCERT books of History, Geography and Polity and Economics. Start Reading "Hindu" or "Indian Express".
