Hope it helps!


I am working in gulf country and my daughter is now in 7th. I need to know if she is to be qualify for general quota and apply for MHT CET what is the minimum education to be taken in maharashtra. or if she shtudy till 12th in gu, can she appear for MH CET and get adimssion in general quota.

Harshita Gupta 15th Jan, 2020
Hey Avinash,

According to the eligibility criteria, the candidate should be of Indian nationality only. So, if your daughter is of Indian nationality, then she is eligible.
Taking about minimum qualification, the candidate must have passed HSC or equivalent qualification with Physics and mathematics as compulsory subjects and one of the subjects from chemistry/biology/biotechnology/vocational training.
The minimum score should be 50% agregate of all the subjects.
There is no such notification regarding the place of completion of 12th. They have stated that 10+2 should be from a recognised board but it hasn't been mentioned that it should be from India only.
Furthermore, the candidates who are children of NRI/OCI/POI or whose parents are indian workers in the gulf countries are exempted from giving the examination. This means that your daughter will not have to give the examination, but she will be given direct admission based on the scores in the qualifying examination (HSC or equivalent).
But, make sure you have all the necessary documents while you apply.
Incase you still have doubt, you can contact their helpline numbers.

Hope this helps!

The board sends the confirmation mail to the given mailaddress or message to the registered number. If you haven't received it then look for helpdesk of the board and ask them to send you a confirmation mail that you have registered for the entrance.

They are the only person who can help you to get the details or process to solve the problem. They will let you know what was the problem for which it was not sent or if there is no problem then they will send you one.

Hope it helps!
