A lot of you might be eyeing multiple law colleges in Maharashtra to pursue 5-year integrated programmes. Since 2016, all law colleges affiliated to the Directorate of Higher Education in Maharashtra have started accepting entrance test scores of Maharashtra Law CET (5 yr) entrance exam. This means that Class XII marks will not be a factor for admission to these colleges. Hence, it is important to analyse admission process to these colleges through the Mah Law CET.
2017 was the second year of Centralised Admission Process (CAP) conducted by Mah Law CET exam authorities. Difficulty level of the exam changes every year. Hence, score cut-offs vary across years. Rank cut-offs are better indicators of possibility of admission into a particular college. We have tracked the closing rank movements along three CAP rounds in 2017 for your reference.
