The Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MH-CET) for admissions to Health Science courses including MBBS and BDS took place on May 7, Thursday. Around 1.89 lakh students appeared for the same. 5,000 students remained absent out of the 1.94 lakh that had registered for the exam.
Like the JEE (Main) 2015 Exam, students found the Physics section to be on the tougher side. The exams were conducted across 507 sub-centres in 35 districts in the state.
The Directorate of Medical Education and Research will publish the answer key within 15 days. It will contain the students’ OMR sheets and question papers for them to verify their answers.
The results will be declared in the first week of June. This year, the state government scrapped the negative marking policy. Previously, one mark was deducted for every wrong answer. This test was based on the state board syllabus this year after a decision taken by the state government.
The online application form was made available on the MH-CET website on March 5. The last date of filling online application forms was March 24. Offline applications had to be submitted by March 27.
