|MT CET Online |
Application Form 2014
The MT-CET 2014, an online common entrance test for admissions to the four-year full-time degree course in pharmacy at the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)-approved colleges in the state of Maharashtra, will be held on April 20, 2014.
The Director of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra issued a notification to this effect recently. A detailed notification regarding availability of information brochure, schedule for filling up of online CET applications, eligibility criteria etc. will be available in this site. The notification related to information brochure and application process will be released on the DTE's website: http://www.dtemaharashtra.gov.in
The notification related to information brochure and application process will be released on the DTE's website: www.dtemaharashtra.gov.in. Last year (2013-14), the DTE had declared an overall student intake of 10,565 seats for 153 pharmacy colleges in the state. The student intake and number of colleges are likely to change for 2014-15 after the AICTE's process for sanction of new colleges and revision of student intake at existing colleges.
The MT-CET is now confined to only the pharmacy degree course admissions in the state. Also, the test will be conducted through an online mode for the first time unlike the conventional pen and paper mode till last year. The government will be conducting a separate entrance test, called the MH-CET, for admission to medical, dental, ayurveda, homeopathy, unani and allied health science courses in the state.
Till last year, pharmacy seats were being filled by way of a common admission process (CAP) based on the state merit list drawn from the MT-CET which was then a common entrance exam for engineering as well as pharmacy courses. However, the state government decided to join the HRD ministry's single national entrance test scheme, called the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE), from academic year 2014-15 for engineering admissions.
