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.

 

Therefore, the aforementioned 4 questions are made non-evaluative. This means, if the candidates opt for verification, then the answer to these questions will appear as * in the printout of the key response.

 

The table below reflects the details of "Non-evaluative/ Invalid" MCQs with the respective Serial Numbers in each version of the paper.
