Manipal University changes exam name from MU OET to MET

Image-MUThe Manipal University has changed the name of the Manipal University Online Entrance Test (MU OET) to Manipal Entrance Test (MET) for candidates applying to B.Tech programmes in the academic year 2018-19. The change in the name of the entrance exam can be seen as an outcome of the UGC's directive which came in the month of November, in which 123 universities were asked to refrain from using “University” in their names. These universities were instructed to use "Deemed to be University" instead and comply with the commission's directive within 15 days. They also had to submit a report to UGC with their alternative name.

Manipal Entrance Test-MET

Candidates applying for admission to Manipal University must know that though the name of the exam has been changed, there has been no change in any of the exam related things be it syllabus, exam pattern, test centres or eligibility. The entrance exam of MET, earlier MU OET will be conducted for admission to around 5000 seats offered for 16 undergraduate engineering programmes by Manipal Institute of Technology, Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology and Sikkim and Manipal University Jaipur.

The university has released the application form of MET 2018 on October 17, 2017 for candidates who want to appear in the entrance exam. The MET 2018 will be conducted in three attempts in online mode on April 19 to May 9 for first and second attempt and on May 11, 2018 for third attempt. Candidates can choose to appear in all three attempts, if not satisfied with their performance in the previous one.

The eligibility criteria of MET 2018 states that candidates must have completed their 10+2 (or equivalent) exam with 50% marks in Physics and Mathematics and any one of the following optional subjects -  Chemistry/ Biology/ Biotechnology or any technical vocational subject. Candidates must have studied English at their 10+2 level. Candidates also need to secure 50% marks in the entrance exam to be considered eligible for counselling procedure.
