Here is a quick section level analysis of the MAH Law CET 2017 (5 Yr. LL.B)

Legal Aptitude and Legal Reasoning

The section had 40 Legal reasoning & no Legal GK questions. Questions were not lengthy with one line each in principle & fact. The section was a fair mix of all topics under the gamut of legal reasoning. Among conventional topics, torts (5), contracts (4), IPR & property law (3), criminal laws, constitution & family law (2 each) formed 18 questions. Remaining 22 questions were spread across taxation, corporate, evidence, procedural, general, self-made & fictional laws. Out of these, around 15 questions did not need previous understanding of legal concepts. They could have been solved with general understanding & adherence to principle. A few questions needed knowledge of commonly used commercial terms, e.g. accrual, principle debtor, surety etc.

There were five difficult questions which looked obvious but were deceptive in nature. E.g. Question around joinder of parties & a few others. An intelligent guess using options was possible in these cases, since a few options were completely absurd

General Knowledge and Current Affairs

This section had a balance of 15 Static GK & 15 current affairs questions. CA was mainly made up of government & politics, awards & honours, personalities, sports, world news & forums. Static GK was based on trade terminologies, economy, Indian politics, national insignia & establishments. Overall section had a few sitters & current affairs were easier than Static GK questions. A few CA questions with ‘None of the above’ answer option annoyed a lot of students, since they could not use elimination in such cases

Logical & Analytical Reasoning

It was dominated by linear, circular & matrix arrangements (5 each). There were 5 questions on inequalities, 3 on family tree, and 2 on directions. 3 questions on data sufficiency were lengthy. There were 7 questions on coding. Within analytical reasoning, there were 5 syllogism questions. The section was lengthy & hence time consuming. Case let on 12 people sitting in 2 rows could have been avoided 

English

All questions of one type were grouped in this section. Single RC passage with 10 Q surprised a few students. The passage was about pollution in China & around 350-word long. Almost all questions were direct & fact/vocabulary based. There were 5 questions each on phrase replacement, para jumbles, grammar errors & cloze test. The section was easy-moderate

Basic Mathematics

Level of difficulty was easy-medium. Most questions were single liners & formula based. Key topics were SI-CI, equation based (2 each), percentages, profit & loss, ages, TSD, mensuration, mixtures (1 each). Knowledge of formulae would have helped
