Questions related to MHT CET
Is JEE marksheet compulsory for MHTCET councelling? i didnt give JEE exam so i have this doubt.
Hi, it depends on how you are registering for the counselling. If you have applied via MHT CET scores, then you don't even have to pay for the counselling. In other words, there is no counselling fee for MHT CET 2020 qualified candidates. But, if you are applying on the basis of your JEE Mains scores, then yes, you will have to pay for the counselling along with all the prerequisite details and documents. Hope this helps!
Can I apply for 2 Courses? If I can then, can I apply for B Arch through general quota and Engineering through NRI quota?
If you are doing one examination for both courses then you can't apply for both. If you are applying both with different examination then you can apply.
Bachelor of architecture and BTech engineering both are different courses so you cannot apply both with different quota in one examination. I think it's clear to you.
All the best.

Hi, yes, there is reservation in engineering colleges if you apply for MHT CET. So, if you want to avail it, and if you belong to a reserved category, then you can easily do so by providing valid proofs and documents about it before regsitration. In this way, it will be considered. Hope this helps!
