Q:   How are MH CET Law exam centres allotted?


The allotment of MH CET Law exam centers is typically based on the choices made by candidates during the application process. Here's how the process generally works:

1. Choice Filling: During the application process, candidates are asked to select their preferred exam centers from a list of available options. They can usually choose multiple centers in order of preference.

2. Availability: Exam center allotment is subject to availability. Popular or high-demand centers may fill up quickly, so it's essential to make your choices early.

3. Random Allocation: If there are multiple candidates choosing the same exam center as their first preference, the allocation may be done randomly among those candidates.

4. Admit Card: After the application process is complete, candidates receive their admit cards, which include information about their allotted exam center. This is typically available for download a few weeks before the exam.

5. No Changes After Submission: Once you've submitted your application, you generally cannot change your exam center. Therefore, it's crucial to choose your preferred center carefully during the application process.

6. Consider Travel and Logistics: Candidates should plan their travel and logistics to reach the assigned exam center on the exam day. Make sure you're familiar with the location and have ample time to arrive before the reporting time.

7. Adherence to Rules: On the exam day, candidates must follow all the rules and guidelines set by the exam authorities at their allocated exam center, including the reporting time and permissible items.

It's important to note that the exact process and policies related to exam center allotment may vary from year to year, so candidates should always refer to the official MH CET Law website and notifications for the most up-to-date and specific information regarding exam center allocation.


Q:   How can I select an exam centre for MH CET Law?

1. Fill out the MH CET Law application form: To book a test centre for MH CET Law, candidates first need to fill out the required personal information, educational details, candidature types, category details, and address for communication.

2. Go to the Exam Preference Centre section: After filling out the required details, candidates need to go to the "MAH-L.L.B.5/3Yrs. –CET (Year) Examination Details" section.

3. Select Exam Centres: Now, select three exam centres for the MH CET Law exam, and then save and submit the details.

Proceed further with the form filling process.


Q:   Can I get the first city of preference as my MH CET Law exam centre?


There is no guarantee that candidates will get the first city of preference as their MH CET Law exam centre. The allocation of test centres depends on various factors, such as the number of candidates that selected a particular centre, the infrastructure capacity of the centre to allow all candidates to appear in the test, and security and safety criteria. Thus, these factors will decide whether you get the exam centre of your choice or not.
The CET Cell Maharashtra allows candidates to select three cities as their exam centre options for the MH CET Law exam. If you do not get the first city of your choice as your exam centre, the exam authority will allot you the second city of your choice as your exam centre. Moreover, if you do not get the second city of your preference as your MH CET Law exam centre, the exam centre of your third preference will be allotted to you. Here, candidates need to know that the exam authority sometimes allocates exam centres randomly.
