MH-CET-Law-HeldThe Maharashtra Common Entrance Test for Law (MH CET Law 2017) for admissions to BA LLB courses in the state law colleges of Maharashtra was conducted by the Directorate of Higher Education, Maharashtra State, on May 20, 2017. Introduced in 2016, MH CET Law 2017 will also be held on May 21 for admissions to LLB courses in the same law colleges. On May 20, MH CET Law was conducted in online mode in different exam centres across India.

Only candidates who had cleared their Class 12 exam with a minimum of 45% aggregate marks would be considered eligible for BA LLB admissions via MH CET Law 2017. As per the MH CET Law Exam Pattern, the exam was held for a duration of two hours and the paper was provided in English and Marathi. The timing of the exam and the location of exam centres were already available to candidates via their MH CET Law 2017 Admit Cards. Candidates were required to answer as many as 150 multiple choice questions in the given time duration, with each question carrying one mark, thereby indicating that the total marks for the law exam was 150. Questions were asked primarily from the assigned MH CET Law Syllabus which covered the topics of Legal Aptitude, General Knowledge and Current Affairs, Logical Reasoning, English and Basic Mathematics, with each section carrying a different amount of marks. There was no negative marking applicable.
