More than 1 lakh students will heave a sigh of relief as the state technical education directorate has decided to scrap the Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to the two year MBA/MMS programme in the state.
From 2013, admission to colleges like Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies and Sydenham Institute of Management Studies will be based on percentile scored by students in the centrally conducted Common Management Admission Test (CMAT). While the All India Council of Technical Education started CMAT from this academic year, several states will be adapting to the new testing pattern. A notification to this effect was issued by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) in Maharashtra on December 28 along with the announcement of the rescheduled dates for this year’s exam. The notification stated that the admissions to first year of two-year full time AICTE-approved MBA/ MMS/ PGDM courses from the academic year 2013-14 will be carried out through CMAT merit list only conducted by AICTE. DTE director S. K. Mahajan said, we will get a separate merit list for the state. It is for the benefit of the students. There were around 96,000 students who applied for 35,500 seats for all post-graduate management courses in the state last year. We are yet to decide on the details of the admission process once we start using CMAT scores. AICTE chairman S. S. Mantha said, most states are on board with us. The state machinery does not move at a faster pace, which is why it is taking time. Some states have agreed to give admissions on the basis of CMAT scores even this year. The universities of Kerala and Rajasthan have accepted CMAT, according to the official website. CMAT registration may be extended:Candidates may get more time to fill the online application forms for CMAT. S. S. Mantha, chairman of AICTE, said: The last date for CMAT registration was January 9. However, with elections scheduled on the same date in some of the states, we are planning to extend the deadline. There might be a grace period of 10-12 days that we can afford. A decision to this effect is yet to be taken.
