Your position in merit may move upwards or downwards due to the merit formation formula of DTE Maharashtra and your All India exam scores.
MBAUniverse.com brings before you the opportunity to find your own merit position with parameters as adopted by DTE Maharashtra
Merit preparation of MAHCET 2016
For Maharashtra State(MS) and Outside Maharashtra State(OMS) candidates seeking admission against All India Seats, apart from MAHCET 2016 score, DTE Maharashtra will consider CAT 2015; CMAT 2016; MAT 2016; XAT 2016; ATMA; GMAT. The merit list will be prepared on the basis of the highest percentile score obtained by the candidate in any of the above tests.
DTE admission notification states that the scores obtained in the exam will be converted to the percentile score upto 2 decimal points without rounding off. If a candidate has appeared in more than one examination, the best percentile scored by him shall be taken into account for preparation of merit list.
Formation of merit in case of equal marks and percentile
Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra proposes to prepare relative merit list on the basis of following criteria for CAP round in MAHCET 2016
More weightage will be given for the higher percentage of marks scored in class 12 or its equivalent examination.
- Preference will be given to the candidates who have scored more marks in class 10.
- Preference on the basis of age will be given to a candidate who is elder.
Separate merit lists for MS & OMS
Separate merit list will be prepared for admission against the Maharashtra state seats (Home University, State level and Persons with Disability); All India Level Seats (State level) and J&K migrant (State level) candidates.
Seats will be allotted to candidates as per their merit and as per the options filled in the option form and the number of seats available at that point of time in the stages of CAP Round.
All candidates eligible for a particular stage of allotment will be considered for allotment for a seat in that stage even if they have been allotted/not allotted a seat in the previous stage.
Upward shift in merit possible
Candidates appear in multiple examinations. For example the candidates who have scored 99+ percentile in MAHCET 2016 and whose admission at any of IIMs, FMS Delhi, IIFT, MDI, IMT, IMI, XLRI has already got the final shape, they may not prefer the B school in Maharashtra and as such, more spaces may fall vacant. Therefore, during the allotment at any stage, the candidate may get upward shift in the allotment with reference to the options filled in the option form according to availability of seats at that point of time.
How to know about the seat allotment
Allotment of seats to the candidates is proposed to be displayed on DTE Maharashtra website on June 4, 2016. It would be only provisional allotment. No personal communication in the form of allotment letter in this regard will be issued to the concerned candidates.
The authorized document for the allotment will be the institute wise allotment list. Besides, allotment against the first available option in the order of options filled in the online option form shall be considered as final.
