On clearing exams, candidates will have to appear for counselling rounds. During counselling, students will have to choose their college and course of choice. Based on both choice and merit, students will be given seats in Maharastra-based colleges.
Like JEE, for MHT CET too candidates will be given percentile scores. Percentile scores are calculated on the basis of the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination. A percentile score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored below their particular score in the examination.
