Maharashtra undergraduate Admission 2021: CET registration for Class 11 to open on Monday; click here for entrance dates | ANI

In the wake of rising COVID-19 cases in the state, the Maharashtra government cancelled Class 10 and Class 12 board exams. However, for admissions to junior colleges, the Maharashtra government has decided to conduct a Common Entrance Test (CET).

As the results of Class 10 exams were declared yesterday, students are now waiting for the dates of CET for Class 11 admission.

Now, as per the report by the Indian Express, the registration window for the CET will open on July 19. The entrance will take place by August 21.

Varsha Gaikwad, school education minister of Maharashtra, had said, "The CET which is completely optional will be conducted offline. The exam will be based on the Class 10 state-board syllabus with multiple-choice questions (MCQ) for 100 marks. There will be questions for 25 marks each in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences subject. The exam will be conducted by OMR method for two hours."

Students appearing for optional CET will be given first preference for admission to Class 11 FYJC based on their CET scores. Gaikwad said, "After the admission of students who have appeared for optional CET is completed, admissions will be given to remaining students on the basis of merit as per marks scored through Class 10 assessment method."

Students will be allowed to enter the CET portal after the results of Class 10 SSC are announced by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE). The optional CET exam will be open for students of all boards. State-board students who have already paid the exam fee will not have to pay the fee for CET however, other board students will have to pay the prescribed fee.
