B-school applicants have nine days to register the common entrance test (MAH-CET) for admission to MBA / MMS. The management of technical education (DTE) began inscriptions on them packing on 27 February. This could lead to a decline in applications, experts said. Also, there is a window of an extra day to March 2 when the students who could not register can fill the forms. The MAH-CET is scheduled to be held March 14 and 15.
With decreasing number of applications each year, DTE worked to make the process smooth and convenient for students, said a teacher with a school management. In addition, the online process is a difficult task for students in rural areas. Last year, some 53,000 students had requested the test. In 2011 and 2012, the numbers were 85,000 and 96,000 respectively. Last year, over 40% of university management 45,000 seats became vacant in Maharashtra.
Other MBA entrance exams like the aptitude test and common management admission test common tend to gap a month during the registration process. The DTE last month, had asked the students to create user names to their website for updates on their inscriptions, regarding which the student openly complained about having given any updates.
