MHCET Law 5 year entrance was held on 22 April from 10 AM to 12 Noon. The paper was based exactly on the structure given by DHE, Maharashtra. However, some changes stood out. The paper was easy but for the Logical Reasoning section which was dominated by Analytical Reasoning.

 

The paper had a total of 150 questions spread across five sections- English, General Knowledge, Mathematics, Legal Aptitude and Legal Reasoning and Logical and Analytical Reasoning.

English

Just like last year, the English section was easy this time. There were 4 FIBs with 2 blanks each, which were easy, followed by a single passage on RC (about 750 words) with 10 questions. The passage was about the Labour Laws in China.  Out of the 10 questions, 4 questions were vocab based, while others were based on facts and inference. There were 4 questions on phrase replacement. Spelling corrections saw 3 questions. There were 4 questions based on para jumble, however all the questions were based on the same paragraph. So, solving the sequence once would have made you answer all the 4 questions.
Choosing the grammatically correct sentence occupied the remaining 5 questions. An attempt of 27-28 should be considered a good one.

General Knowledge:

This section should have given relief to the candidates. GK was completely dominated by Current Affairs with just two questions based on static GK questions on Bihu dance, Brahmo Samaj. Questions on current affairs covered all areas one can expect. Candidates were expected to remember a substantive chunk of data on various aspects of the issues. A good attempt would be 26-27 questions.

Legal Aptitude

Like general knowledge section, this section was easy but covered most concepts from contracts and criminal law. The level of this section was very easy and maximum questions were self-explanatory and didn’t require prior legal knowledge. Law of contracts dominated the section with 21 questions coming from the area. There were 8 questions based on criminal law. A good attempt in this section would be 34-35.

Logical Reasoning

This section was difficult this time. The entire section was dominated by Analytical Reasoning. Questions from Arrangements, Directions, Blood Relations, Series, Inequalities and Syllogisms appeared in the section. Verbal Reasoning had 5 questions based on syllogisms. Questions based on Circular arrangement and Machine input output was difficult and time taking. Rest all questions were moderate. Overall it was a difficult section and an attempt of 25-30 should be considered a good one.

Mathematics

This section of the paper had 10 questions which were of moderate level difficulty.  Questions came from almost every topic, including data sufficiency, time and work, time speed and distance, average, SI and CI, boats and stream and equations. An attempt of 6-7 should see you in safe territory.

Estimated Cut-offs for GLC and ILS:

The expected cut-off for students of Maharashtra would be around 90-110 and for students of Rest of India, it can be close to 110-115 for GLC and ILS.
