MHT CET 2021: Students anxious about entrance exam schedule seek quick action


PUNE: Students’ unions in the city have written to the state common entrance test (CET) cell to declare details at the earliest and begin the tendering process so that there is no delay like last year.

Students said the cell conducts nearly 15 entrance tests for undergraduate and postgraduate courses and yet there is no clarity regarding any.

The Student Helping Hand, a non-governmental organisation, has approached the CET cell to publish the cancelled tender for conducting the test so that students can find some relief.

Kuldeep Ambekar of the organisation said, “Lakhs of students from Maharashtra and other states in the country are waiting for updates regarding the tests conducted by this cell as they are the thresholds to professional courses. There was an immense delay last year in conducting the CET, but this year knowing the situation, the cell should be prepared and schedule the tests accordingly.”

Almost five lakh students from Maharashtra appear for the CET exams for professional courses such as engineering, law, architecture, management, hotel management and catering technology among others.

Ambekar said the tendering process was online and since three months there was no procedure initiated by the CET cell regarding republishing the previous tender that had some technical errors and hence was cancelled.

Asma Palkar, a Std XII student, said there is a section of students completely dependent on the CET scores for further admissions. So whether Std XII exams happen or not, we know the entrance test will definitely take place.

“So the authorities should initiate the process and ensure the time required for the admission is reduced as much as possible.”

Commissioner of CET Cell, Chintamani Joshi, said they will publish the tender on Tuesday. “The CET is yet to be scheduled. There are many factors that would determine scheduling considering the Std XII exams of all boards, other national entrance tests and also Covid restrictions.”
