The ambiguity surrounding the conduct of Maharashtra’s first Common Entrance Test for law continues, even as the matter is being heard by the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court. The exam is to be conducted in less than a week’s time.

Last month, a prospective law student, Kedar Warad, had filed a writ petition challenging the conduct of the exam.Varad had argued that the syllabus for the exam had not yet been published, nor has there been any information provided with respect to the paper pattern. The High Court had subsequently issued notice in the matter.

But little has happened since then.

On the last date of hearing on Friday (June 10), a bench of Justices SS Shinde and Sangitrao Patil gave the respondents until this Wednesday to file a reply. In its order, the Bench has made it clear that this would be the last opportunity for the respondents to do so.

Advocate SB Talekar is appearing for the petitioner, whereas Special Counsel RS Deshmukh and Assistant Government Pleader SK Kadam are appearing for the state.
