If you missed out on giving the MAH CET 2015 for admission to MBA/MMS courses in Maharashtra, don’t be disheartened! For you can still get admission in the state’s management institutes through a new Common Entrance Test (CET).

The Association of Management of MBA/MMS Institutes (AMMI) has decided to hold its own Common Entrance Test (CET) in August to fill the increasingly vacant seats in Maharashtra state management colleges.

The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has also agreed to provide admission to students through the exam, which is going to be your gateway to more than 300 B-schools in the state.

The seats that will remain vacant after the last Common Admission Process (CAP) round will be filled via the CET. Currently, registration for the CAP round is underway and it will continue into June.

In 2014, over 50,000 seats in management colleges remained vacant after the final admission round. The state also had given permission to convert all minority seats lying vacant into open category seats.

EB Khedkar, president of the association, says those who missed out on giving the MAH CET, could appear for this entrance test on August 2, 2015.

“We have received all the necessary permissions to conduct the test from the state government as well as the Bombay high court,” he said.

Last month, state education minister Vinod Tawde had announced that private institutes will not be able to conduct the Common Entrance Test (CET) at the individual level from this academic year.

However, the association stated that the entrance test is for 300 approved institutions and not for a single private MBA college.

While the association says that the test is for those who missed the MAH CET, there is no clarity on whether students who have appeared for the state-level MAH CET can appear for the new CET again.

Some students, however, want to appear for this test.

Sujit Agarwal, an MBA aspirant, says “Owing to the problems in the MAH CET, I did not score well. I hope we can appear for the new CET.”
