94-97% MS candidates took MAHCET 2015

The percentage of Maharashtra State (MS) candidates who took the exam was as high as 94 to 97 at various test centres in Maharashtra. However, as anticipated by MBAUniverse.com there were only 85% percent candidates of Outside Maharashtra State (OMS) category who took the test, as per the data released by DTE Maharashtra.

DTE Maharashtra has also shared the revised statistics of registration data after the exam on March 15, 2015. Now there are 60292 total registrations comprising 55998 Maharashtra State category candidates and 4294 OMS category candidates. Actual test takers were 57012 out of 60292 who took MAHCET 2015 in multiple sessions on 2 days. Out of 57012 taking the test, number of Maharashtra State candidates stood at 53355 while OMS category candidates taking the test remained at 3657.  

 Valid Registrations less than declared earlier

The registration statistics released earlier before the MAHCET 2015 by DTE Maharashtra had 60363 candidates but the registration data released now shows total number of 60292 registered candidates. The difference is due to some invalid or duplicate registrations which have not been accounted for.

Valid OMS registrations go up

The registration statistics of Outside Maharashtra State (OMS) candidates as shared by DTE Maharashtra earlier before the exam contained 2453 candidates for the 7000 OMS seats. This number has gone up to 4294 OMS candidates registered for MAHCET 2015.

The principal reason in the revision of this registration number is that many candidates, instead of inserting the OMS category, filled up ‘Open’ category. MBAUniverse.com educated the candidates to avoid the mistake and advised them to immediately edit the application form and contact DTE Maharashtra on Helpline as well as send the email.  As a result, the number of OMS candidates has gone up from 2453 to 4294.

MAHCET 2015: Marred with technical glitches

MAHCET 2015 for 100 candidates taking test at one of the test venues at Wardha (Maharashtra)  had to be rescheduled due to technical glitches. Server of DTE Maharashtra got shut down at one of the test centres in Nagpur and the candidates who completed more than half of their test and still had sufficient time left to complete the entire exam had to abandon the exam. Candidates got panicky and some of them refused to reappear in the exam in case rescheduling of the exam was announced later.

Candidates are now keeping their fingers crossed and looking forward for some positive response from DTE Maharashtra to resolve the issue of technical problem at various test centres during the conduct of MAHCET 2015 so that their scores are not affected adversely.
