The number of students who have registered for the Maharashtra state Common Entrance Test (MH-CET) for management this year has fallen to 85,000 compared to 90,000 applicants last year.

Two years ago, 1.05 lakh aspirants had appeared for the CET. This is the last year of the state CET, and will soon be replaced by the Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) that is being introduced by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

This year business schools in the state will accept both CET and CMAT scores from candidates. "Fewer students may have registered for the CET because they have the option of CMAT as well," said a senior official from the directorate of technical education, which conducts the state CET.

The last day to apply for MH-CET was Saturday. Candidates who missed the deadline but still wish to appear for the CET can pay a late fee of Rs1000 and submit their applications on February 22 and 23 at Sydenham College, said the official.
