The last Maharashtra Health and Technology Common Entrance Examination (MHT-CET) has not only brought smile on the faces of the students but also of the state government with positive results in comparison to last year. It is to be replaced with all India common entrance examinations for both medical and engineering faculties from next year. While National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), to be conducted by Delhi-based Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), is a surety, there is still some confusion over Indian Science and Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) owing to revolt by some of the IITs.
While NEET would be conducted under the aegis of Medical Council of India (MCI), ISEET would be administered by the CBSE. MHT-CET had annually drawn over three lakh professional course aspirants from Maharashtra and other states as well. It was introduced from academic year 2004-05 following the Supreme Court's landmark verdict of August 2003 regarding fees and admissions to professional courses. In fact, the admissions for first year pharmacy, architecture, hotel management and veterinary science courses (B.V.Sc and AH) was also made through the same exam, making it one of the most popular one among the students.
Even the enrollment for the exam had gown up over the years with as many as 3.38 lakh registering for it as compared to 3.02 lakh in 2011 and 2.85 lakh in 2010. While the test was conducted by the DMER, the centralised seat-allotment process was separately conducted by DMER for medical admissions and DTE for engineering admissions. While there was tough fight for medical admissions, over 25,000 engineering seats remained vacant last year. Interestingly, the eligibility criteria were just zone-zero score for admissions to engineering degree.
