what are the options of non maharashtra students writing MHCET after passing class 12 from Maharashtra? Up to 10 from other state.

Aman Raj Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019

Hello Aaron

Options are there but far less as compared to Maharashtra Students.

The usual allocations of seats for any non govt aided (non minority) college is as follows

65 % Maharashtra State candidates

15 % all India (excluding Maharashtra) candidates.

20% Institute level allocation (management quota).

This type 2 i.e. all India level seats can be secured by appearing for JEE mains.

If one wants to opt for govt/govt aided colleges, then CET is the only option.


how many marks I obtained in mhtcet to take admission in coep for cs branch

Apurv 19th Oct, 2019

Hello Sanket, COEP is the best college in maharashtra for engineering and is one of the oldest and the best colleges for engineering. You would need to bring something around 115 rank in MHTCET order to get admission in the CS branch. Though the cutoff in 2018 was 119 rank for CS, but still the cutoff changes every year and it is very competitive in case of COEP.
