Pune, 28th September 2021: A student activist, Vaibhav Edke, has filed public interest litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court against the Maharashtra MBA, MMS common entrance test (CET) alleging that guidelines were not followed in the admission examination.


The PIL has made secretary, higher and technical education, as well as commissioner of Maharashtra State Common Entrance Test Cell, as respondents and demanded stay on the admission process.


Edke has also demanded the addition of marks for mismanagement in the question papers as some students have claimed to have got less than stipulated questions. He has also asked for re-examination for those and to consider the higher marks for admission.


The Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to the MBA courses was conducted on 16th, 17th, and 18th September through State Common Entrance Examination Cell (MH CET). However, it was found that the questions asked weren’t following the guidelines.


The exam had a total of four subjects. The CET had earlier issued guidelines for 75 questions and 75 marks on the IQ test and 50 questions and 50 marks in Mathematics, 50 questions and 50 marks in English, and 25 questions and 25 marks in AB Reasoning.


Complaints have been received from students that less than 75 questions were asked in the intelligence test. The students also complained that more than 50 questions were asked in Maths and English each.


Edke, who is the president of Maharashtra Student Welfare Association (MSWA), had also written to the Maharashtra Higher and Technical Education Minister Uday Samant regarding this problem.
