The State Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has issued a fresh notification alerting JEE (Main) aspirants to take a note of the online form submission schedule that ends on December 26.
JEE Main Online Form Submission Till December 26. Till last year, the Maharashtra state government was conducting the Maharashtra Health and Technology – Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET) which happened to be a combined entrance exam for admission into degree courses in engineering, pharmacy and health sciences within the state.
However, following the government’s decision to join the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) for health science courses from this year, the MHT-CET was discontinued and the DTE subsequently introduced the MT-CET for admissions into engineering courses in 2013-14.
The NEET was scrapped by the Supreme Court of India earlier this year.
For engineering and technology courses, the state government finally decided to join the JEE Main, administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The next edition of the entrance exam will be conducted on April 2014.
The DTE notification in question pointed out that the application process for JEE Main that started on November 15, can be only done online. Students, who want to appear in the exam, can submit their form on the website: www.jeemain.nic.in.
