50% fewer candidates secured 150 or more compared to 2010
Mumbai: Each year, a couple of engineering aspirants crack
the Maharashtra - Common Entrance Test (MHTCET) and score a perfect 200 on 200. This
time, not a single candidate managed that feat. Pritesh Vinod Chhajed from Nashiks
JDC Bytco College grabbed the top spot with an astonishing 199 in the engineering
CET. About 50% fewer candidates secured 150 or more compared to 2010.
In the medical stream, apart from a few toppers, students across Maharashtra put
up a poor show. Only 19 candidates scored between 190 and 200 in 2011 compared to
79 last year. This year's question paper quizzed students on fundamental concepts
in the sciences and mathematics. The performance shows that they have been practicing
on a set format designed by coaching classes, said a senior DMER official.
