Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra has declared 4 incorrect questions in MHT CET 2017 question paper. The Competent Authority, on the basis of the opinion and advice of the respective subject expert has taken a decision to make these four 4 questions "non-evaluative/invalid". The decision has been taken a couple of days after MHT CET 2017 result was declared on June 3. In a latest announcement, Chandrashekhar V. Oak, Commissioner & Competent Authority, State CET Cell, Maharashtra State has notified that out of the 4 invalid questions, 3 questions carry 1 mark each for a correct answer, while 1 question carries 2 marks for a correct answer.
Further, the exam conducting authority has also decided not to reduce the maximum number of marks to 195. According to the official notification, instead of reducing the maximum number of marks from 200 to 195, the Competent Authority has decided to allot marks for each of these incorrect Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) to all candidates who have taken the state level engineering entrance test. Thus, the maximum marks for MHT CET 2017 will be 200 (unchanged). Besides these 4 invalid questions, the exam authority has also notified that except the answer key for the Chemistry (question number 92) in version 11 is D instead of A.
