Maharashtra Common Entrance Test pattern transparent: Commissioner

Mumbai, June 22 (IANS): Days after Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray demanded transparency in the recently conducted Maharashtra Health and Technical Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET) for engineering, Dilip Sardesai, the Commissioner of the State Common Entrance Test Chamber (CET Chamber), on Saturday claimed that the exam pattern is completely transparent and without human intervention.

No grace marks have been given to any candidate in the said examination result. If there are any objections or complaints to the parents, examinees regarding the question or answer under this examination, the objection registration facility was made available through an online system through the CET cell," said Sardesai.

He stated that the objections registered by the candidates have been verified by subject wise experts and the answer sheets have been modified accordingly. The reports have been published on the website of the CET cell for the information of the candidates.

"The result process has been implemented by incorporating the said revised answer sheet. In this, the marks obtained by the candidate are declared as per the formula of result process and session wise result is declared in percentile form," he added.
