Will MH CET Law 2021 be Postponed?
Even though there’s no official statement announced by any institute regarding the postponement of the exams, but, considering the country’s situation, the exams are likely to be postponed.
Earlier this year, the State CET Cell Maharashtra announced that MH CET exam will be delayed this year because of the delay in the previous session.

Take this as an opportunity to boost your chances of securing seats in the desired law colleges.
