After much wait, Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (CET) Cell on Saturday (November 28) declared the results of MAH LLB-5 Yrs CET 2020, the entrance exam for 5-year LLB integrated courses across the state. While you can check your individual results in a consolidated sheet published by the CET Cell, it’s important to remember that it’s a competitive exam. More than how much you scored, what matters more is how are you ranked compared to other students.
You might want to find out your chances of admission to a particular college or colleges by checking their last year’s cut-off. However, the candidates’ overall performance and scores vary every year depending on the difficulty level of the question papers. As a result, the cut-offs also change every year. So, will this year’s cut-offs be more or less than last year’s, and to what extent? We are here to help!
We have compared the results of MAH LLB-5 Yrs CETs for 2019 and 2020 to assess the relative performance of candidates. We have also tried to analyse how this will impact cut-offs of law colleges. Here’s what we found.
Less Competition, Low Cut-offs
The law aspirants will likely face slightly less competition this year, as the number of total candidates who took the exam has decreased from last year’s 18,114 to 16,349. This increases your chances of getting admitted to a college high up your preference list to some extent.
Besides, compared to last year the scores have fallen considerably, especially in the top bracket. The number of students scoring above 100 out of 150 marks is merely 693, a sharp decrease from 2,017 students who scored in this range last year. The highest score this year is 131, much lower than last year’s 138. This will result in much lower cut-offs in top law colleges in the state.
There has been a drop in the number of students scoring above 50. A total of 8,265 students scored in this bracket this year, compared to 9,813 students scoring in the same range last year. This means, there will likely be a considerable drop in cut-offs in colleges across the board.
In other words, if you have scored well this year, there’s much more likelihood of getting a seat in a college of your choice.
