N. Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research (We School) and Pune University MBA (PUMBA) which rank among the best MBA colleges in the country and the best of the students eye a seat in these prestigious colleges.

MAH CET is an online management entrance test and is conducted by State Common Entrance Test Cell, Maharashtra. The test is used for admission to MBA courses in various institutes of Maharashtra.

MAH CET exam includes counselling. This is a centralized process and comes under the Centralized Admission Process (CAP). It is important to note that students from outside the state of Maharashtra can take admission in MBA colleges of Maharashtra based on the performance of MAH CET, but they must have a valid score of CAT//CMAT/GMAT/MAT/XAT/ATMA to be able to apply for admission in Maharashtra-based colleges under MAH CET Counseling.

MAH CET is a two-day test, generally conducted in morning and evening sessions. The MAH CET 2020 will be conducted on March 14 and 15, 2020. This test can also be called MBA CET 2020.

After the results of MH CET 2020 will be declared, the Centralized Admission Process (CAP) will take place in June or July 2020.

Although it is a moderate-level test in terms of difficulty, students must prepare well for MBA CET 2020 as more than 1 lakh students take the test every year, and even MAHCET 2020 is likely to see a similar number of students taking the test for just 40,000 MBA college seats in the state.

Unlike many other tests for MBA courses, there will be no negative marks given for wrong answers in MAHCET. For each correct answer, a candidate will be given one mark. This will apply to all the four sections of the MAHCET2020 – Logical Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude and Verbal Ability.

Maharashtra is home to some of the finest MBA colleges and institutes and a good performance in MAHCET2020 will open their gates for admission. The number of questions in each of the four sections varies from year to year, and there is no trend to be followed. However, there will certainly be a total of 200 questions of 200 marks and candidates will have 2 hours and 30 minutes (total 150 minutes) for answering the questions. The MBA CET 2020 will be conducted in 47 cities of the country. There are many cities outside Maharashtra where MAHCET2020 will be conducted, including the capital, New Delhi.

Many MBA colleges in Maharashtra have 100 percent placement record, and it makes sense to do well in MBA CET 2020. There can be foreign placements also as some of the MBA colleges in Maharashtra have consistently seen foreign companies coming for employing their students. The salaries in some of the best MBA colleges of Maharashtra can be as high as Rs 30 lakh per annum (domestic offer).

MAH CET 2020 will be conducted in March, and the last date of filling up the application forms for that is 15 February 2020. The test will be held on 14 and 15 March, and the result will be declared on 31 March. While the MHCET is not considered to be a challenging test, one must prepare thoroughly for MAH CET 2020 as this is one of the most important tests in the country for MBA education and a high score in this test will open up options for the candidates who have done well in other entrance tests for MBA courses. Whether one finally takes admission in a college in Maharashtra through MH CET 2020 can be decided later, but a good score must be the target of every MBA aspirant.

Someone who has prepared well for CAT or ATMA should do well in MH CET 2020, but a little bit of preparation specifically for MAH CET 2020 is advisable.
