The Latur Pattern of study was developed by principal Aniruddha Jadhav of Rajarishi Shahu College in Latur, India.[1] Latur is a mechanical methodology of continuous study designed to help students in providing point-to-point answers to questions which could be expected in the examination.[1] It became the standard for secondary, higher secondary, and university education in the Maharashtra state of India.[2] This educational technique has become widely adopted in other parts of the state due to the success of student's in Maharashtra on the standardized College Entrance Examinations (CET).[2]

This methodology, has been criticized by many educators in India, who consider it a tool to gain temporary advantage, that does not prepare them for advanced learning.[1][2][3]
