- CET Preparation for UG Admission in Maharashtra
- Education Minister also informed about engineering and pharmacy entrance exam date
Uday Samant told that the entrance examination for admission in engineering, pharmacy and architecture courses in colleges of Maharashtra (MHCET 2021) will be conducted in the end of July or the first week of August. Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (Maha CET) will be conducted on online mode.
How will be the first year UG admission?
Higher Education Minister Samant said that in non-professional UG courses, admissions were done on the basis of 12th marks. But this year 12th board exams have not been held. In such a situation, CET can be done for first year UG courses, such as Bachelor of Arts (BA admission 2021), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom admission 2021), Bachelor of Science (BSc admission 2021).
He said that ‘the government is exploring options for this. We are contemplating whether to conduct a state level CET for UG admission or at the divisional level or else each university should take its own entrance exam. The government has constituted a committee, which includes VCs of various universities, state CET cells and officials of the higher education department. This committee will prepare a report on the matter.
Fee will not be charged
Samant said for UG admission if CET (Maharashtra UG admission CET 2021), then no application fee will be charged to the students, as they have already paid the fees of 12th board exam. At the same time, the Fee Regulatory Authority will take a decision on the demand of students for exemption in college fees.
This year also only online class
The Education Minister said that in view of the current situation, in this academic session also online classes will be conducted in all professional courses. In the midst of the fear of the third wave of Corona virus, taking care of security, offline lectures and practicals cannot be conducted right now.
