Maharashtra Government has announced that irrespective of the plea to re-look at the dates for MHT-CET 2016, students will have to appear for the MHTCET on May 5, 2016 as decided by the government.
There wil be no change in the schedule of 2016 MHTCET exam. Medical Education Minister Vinod Tawde said, "There is no change. The students who have prepared for the MH-CET should appear for it. The state Government will file a review petition in the Supreme Court".
He said that those who appear for NEET can also appear for the May 5 MHT-CET. Even if the SC turned down state's plea to allow it to hold the MH-CET on May 5, the students still have the chance to appear for the NEET on July 24, 2016.
Vinod Tawde today said the state government would file a review petition in the Supreme Court with regard to NEET and said students aspiring for admission to medical courses should appear for the state"s medical entrance examination, MH-CET, on May 5.
He asserted that the state will conduct the medical admission process as per the MH-CET results.
In its review petition, the state will argue before the Apex Court that the students from HSC (state) Board, appearing for the 85% of the state-level admission quota seats, will not be able to compete with the students from CBSE boards in the NEET because of the different syllabus.
This leads to a lot of confusion among students aspiring for the medical degree in the state.
CollegeDekho wishes all the very best to students for NEET & MHT CET exams.
