MHT CET 2020 exam date: Exam likely from 1 to 15 October, says Maharashtra education minister Uday Samant

The Maharashtra administration is making efforts to conduct the MHT CET (Maharashtra Common Entrance Test) 2020 for various professional courses between 1 and 15 October. The state minister for higher and technical education Uday Samant made this announcement on Twitter on Wednesday

"A revised schedule of the exam will be announced soon. Students should continue their studies," Samant tweeted in Marathi.

The admit cards, or hall tickets, of the examination will be released soon.

A report by The Times of India said more than 5 lakh students have registered for MHT CET this year.

As for the pending final year university exams in the state, Samant said that Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has asked the government to conduct the exams using simple methods and without causing mental stress to students.

Samant, Koshiyari and vice-chancellors of 13 public universities will be meeting on Thursday to discuss the schedule and mode of the exam.

On 24 August, the Supreme Court of India had dismissed a plea seeking the postponement of MHT CET 2020. The apex court said to the petitioner, "We have allowed conducting of NEET and JEE, how can we now stop exams in one state? You should have checked our orders."

The exam was earlier scheduled to be held in July and August but has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Maharashtra CET is held for admission to engineering and pharmacy programmes offered by the colleges of the state.
