The Maharashtra state government's common entrance test for MBA (MBA CET) has been postponed to March 11, 2012. It was earlier scheduled for February 26.
The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) which conducts the entrance test decided to push the exam by two weeks as the date fall within the testing window of the newly introduced pan-India entrance test - Common Management Admission Test (CMAT). The CMAT is conduced by the All India Council for Technical Education and will be held from February 20 to 28 in 61 Indian cities. Registrations for the CMAT have been on since over a month and end on January 9. This computer-based exam was borne out of the idea that students can skip taking multiple tests and merely sit for the CMAT. But most states like Maharashtra have decided to, irrespectively, continue with their own entrance exam too, defeating the purpose of the all-India CMAT and making it just one more entrance exam to the coveted business management courses. Scores in the state government entrance test, which is conducted in the paper-pencil mode, is the passport top B-schools in the financial capital JBIMS, K J Somaiya Institute of Management Studies & Research, Welingkar Education, Sydenham Institute of Management Studies, Research and Entrepreneurship Education and other institutes in Maharashtra. In 2011, 92,167 candidates took the MBA-CET, a slight drop from the previous year when 1.05 lakh students sat for the exam. DTE officials said that the recession and poor placements were leading to a drop in the number of applicants interested in business management courses. The state CET quizzes students for 200 marks. There are six sections in the exam which are quantitative aptitude, logical reasoning and visual reasoning, data interpretation and data sufficiency, verbal ability and reading comprehension.
