Students were cheerful when they came out from the MH-CET, the entrance exam to engineering and medical colleges. The CET, which is the largest state exam with more than 2.85 lakh candidates applying to it, was held on Thursday.
The paper, said students, was predictable. But there were a few ambiguities that left students confused.
“There was one question in the chemistry section that had two right answers. In the biology paper, there were three questions that had problems, but nothing was unusually wrong so students were quite happy with the test,” said Sachin Haldavnekar, a faculty with SP Coaching in Mumbai. In the mathematics paper, one question did not have any correct option.
The Directorate of Medical Education and Research, which conducts the exam, said that they would look into any doubts raised by students.
“If students have any problems with the questions, we will address them. After all, the exam is held for students and we will always give them the benefit of doubt,” said Director W.B Tayade.
The results will be out on June 14.
Physics and chemistry was clubbed in one paper in the morning session. It was followed by separate mathematics and biology papers. Students interested in engineering opted for the mathematics paper, while those who want medicine took the biology paper.
The exam was conducted across 35 districts and 740 centres located in schools and colleges. In Mumbai and Thane about 60,000 students took the exam.
Students are glad that the last of the entrance tests is over. “It has been a long line of entrance tests, and this was the easiest of the lot. So now till all the results come out, it is time to enjoy the summer,” said Samir Choudary, a student.
