Many aspiring doctors who now stand to lose their seats in their preferred colleges after the one mark revision in MH-CET. On Monday, June 15, the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) released the final and revised merit list of MH-CET. Mumbai’s medical college can accommodate only around 250 students in the open category and students who scored less than 250 in the provisional list after the revision lost out on their merit position.
This case is the same as the students who are at the bottom end of the merit list of the top 1,300 as Maharashtra’s government medical colleges have a bit over 1,300 seats in the open category. For some students, their ranks jumped as they got additional marks. One of the DMER officials said that those who were included in the top 100 ranks whose ranks dropped after the revision of the merit list was by five to 10 ranks. These students are those who didn’t get additional marks for a disputed question in biology. Similarly, the merit position have dropped by 15 to 30 for those students who have their ranks within 500 and so on. For students to get the coveted seats in one government and four civic medical colleges in the city, they have to fall within the 400 rank in the open category.
With the addition of Cooper Hospital in Mumbai, the pool of seats has increased from 600 to 750 seats. Out of the total 750 seats, 200 seats are from the Grant Medical College which a government college and the remaining 550 are from the Civic-run colleges which are KEM, Sion, Niar and Cooper
