MAH CET Result

MAH CET Result 2018: The MAH CET MBA was organised by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra on 10th and 11th March 2018. The fate of thousands of ambitious young aspirants depends on this exam as the MAH CET MBA is a direct ticket to around 400 colleges in Maharashtra including JBIMS, SIMSREE, PUMBA and K J Somaiya among others.

MAH CET Result 2018

The results of the MAH CET MBA will be declared on 19th March 2018. The results will be available only through online mode, which can be accessed through candidate’s Registration ID and Date of Birth. The MAH CET Result 2018, will be declared in the form of score card, percentile and All India Rank.

Highlights of 2017 MAH CET Result

In 2017, 88226 candidates appeared for the exam out of 94679 total registered candidates. This is the highest number and percentage of candidates to have registered and appeared in the exam in the last four years.

For the last many years, the MAH CET has not seen 100 percentile being scored by any candidate. The scoring pattern is not fixed and varies, for instance, a candidate scoring 165 marks is awarded the highest percentile of 99.99 sometimes, while the same percentile is awarded to a candidate with 145 marks sometimes. In 2017, the highest percentile of 99.99 was awarded to the score range of 136 to 145 marks, which brightened the chance of candidates to get admission in top colleges like JBIMS, even at low scores.
