Here is a quick section level analysis of MAH Law CET 2019

Legal Aptitude and Legal Reasoning

The Legal Aptitude section was regarded, across the slots, to be the easiest section of the lot. The section had 30 Legal Reasoning questions and no Legal General Knowledge or Legal Maxims based questions. The pattern remained the same from the past year. The section was a judicious mix of Torts, Contracts and Criminal Law. Miscellaneous topics like Family Law, Procedural Law, Intellectual Property Law, Company Law were also present. The questions were mostly brief and uncomplicated. l

General Knowledge and Current Affairs

The General Knowledge section was a difficult section. The surprise element was that static GK questions (Legal GK, Indian History, Historical figures and Geography) took upto 40-50% of the questions. In the static GK questions, it was noticed that while they were not identical the questions were similar across the slots. For eg: In the morning slot the question was regarding the place of origin of Sabarmati River, and in the afternoon slot the question was regarding the origin of Mahi River. The current GK question types included defence and aerospace, government, science and technology, indian and world geography, business and finance. There were anywhere between 5-8 questions based on LGK, most of which were static and constitutional law based.

The current and static GK varied within the range of moderate to difficult across the slots. The LGK question difficulty level varied, the afternoon slot LGK were straightforward whereas the morning slot LGK were tough and obscure.

Logical & Analytical Reasoning

This section was moderately difficult, but it was made significantly more difficult because it was lengthy. There some questions sets which were time consuming. Question type included square arrangement, linear arrangement and matrix arrangement, coding and syllogisms (4-5 questions each), statement and course of actions, fill the blanks, and paragraph based question (1-2) each..

The set based questions were particularly time consuming, thus making it a lengthy section.


The English Section was lengthy in all the slots. The reading comprehension passages were around 800 -1000 words long across the slots. The passages and the related questions, aside from being lengthy were moderately difficult too. Conventional question types like reading comprehension, identification of grammatically correct sentences, identification of grammatically correct word, sentence completion, fill in the blanks, parajumbles, cloze test filled most of the 50 question section. However there were certain surprises like  questions where single sentence had to be formed from three sentences without changing the meaning, two synonyms were given as an option and individually each had to be contextually and grammatically correct for a single blank and a sequence of questions on a single parajumble. This section had easy questions in the midst of moderate to difficult sets and new question types, making it a challenging one.
