Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET)
MHT-CET is an entrance exam conducted for admission to all private, Government, Aided & Unaided engineering universities/colleges in Maharashtra for Undergraduate Engineering courses. MHT-CET is the most important Engineering Entrance Exam for getting admission in Maharashtra Engineering Colleges.
Govt of Maharashtra shall conduct a single combined common entrance test MHT-CET for all Health Sciences, Engineering and Pharmacy degree courses.
The merit list of the above said examination will be utilized for admission in (i) Govt/Municipal corporation/govt aided colleges of Health sciences degree coruses (ii) Govt/govt. aided/university managed colleges/university departments/autonomous colleges including ICT, Mumbai and unaided private colleges (those colleges who have given consent to participate in MHT-CET-2010) of engineering and pharmacy degree courses (iii) BVSc and AH degree course.
For selection process there will be separate competent authorities. For selection to Health science degree courses, the director, medical education and research (DMER), Mumbai is the competent authority. For selection to engineering and pharmacy degree courses, the director, Technical education (DTE), Mumbai will be the competent authority. The authority for selection to BVSc and AH degree course is the Registrar, Maharashtra Animal and Fisheries science university Nagpur
The qualifying examination for appearing at MHT-CET-2010 is HSC (12th std) or equivalent examination with the conditions for eligibility as defined in the respective brochure(s). Maharashtra state candidates appearing for HSC (12th std) or equivalent examination or who have passed their qualifying examination earlier i.e. 2009 or before and desire to appear for the MHT-CET-2010 will receive their application form from their respective Jr. college/school (from where they have passed/appearing qualifying examination).
A single application form and three brochures (Health science, Engineering and Pharmacy) will be made available from 12.03.2010. The schedule and place of receiving and submission of application form is as per following
