    Note: The State CET Cell has successfully conducted the MHT-CET-2020 Exam as per declared schedule from 1st to 9th October 2020 and 12th to 20th October 2020. During this period the State CET Cell has received many representations from Candidates (and / or their parents) regarding their inability to appear in the said examination due to various factors (viz, transportation issues due to heavy rainfall, power outage, Covid-19 symptoms etc). In order to safeguard the interests of such candidates the State CET Cell proposes to hold additional sessions at Test Centers in Maharashtra State, for PCB Group and PCM Group Examinations. The candidates who had successfully registered themselves for the MHT-CET-2020 Exam and had downloaded their Admit Cards for appearing in the MHT CET 2020 for PCB or PCM Group examination, but were unable to reach their allotted Test Centre due to circumstances beyond their control and hence could not appear in the said examination, would be eligible to appear in the additional sessions.
