Pune: State Higher and Technical Education Minister Uday Samant has stated that the results of entrance examinations conducted by the state Common Entrance Test (CET) cell will be declared by December 5 and immediately thereafter admissions for all professional courses will be started.
The admission process for engineering, pharmacy, agriculture and law, architecture, hotel management, B.Ed and M.Ed have been disrupted due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the state. After the unlock phase began, the CET exams were conducted state-wide. However, results for only hotel management and architecture courses have been declared in October month, while results for other courses are yet to be declared. The result for MBA CET has been declared in May month.
It is said that the MHTCET cell has not declared the results due to the Maratha community reservation agitation. The state government has recently announced that the SEBC category students will be given admission under the open category. This has raised hopes of resuming the admission process in the state. But, since the CET results are yet not declared, students and parents are becoming anxious about the academic year progress. MHTCET would be declaring the results at the end of this month, sources said.
Uday Samant, in his tweet, has said, "The CET results for all professional courses will be declared till December 5. The result will be published on the CET cell website. The centralised admission process will begin from December first week."
