CAP, post MH-CET (MBA)

CAP, post MH-CET (MBA)

Centralized Admission Process(CAP) is the admission process for 400+ B-Schools which offers MBA/MMS/PGDM programmes across Maharashtra for Maharashtra domicile as well as for outside Maharashtra candidates.

According to DTE Maharashtra “Candidates securing Non Zero Positive marks/score in MAH-MBA/ MMS-CET or GMAT/CAT/ MAT/ ATMA / XAT/ CMAT (conducted by AICTE) / Association CET/ Any other equivalent CET will be eligible to get admission to MBA/MMS/PGDBM/PGDM course in the State of Maharashtra”


However, the candidates must duly register themselves for MAH CET CAP by paying a requisite fee to DTE Maharashtra online if not already registered to be eligible to participate in CAP.


Candidates will be called for document verification, updation and confirmation of application form for admission in person at respective ARC centres for Maharashtra as well as Outside Maharashtra State candidature.


DTE Maharashtra will display the provisional merit lists for Maharashtra state as well as outside Maharashtra state candidates and the final merit list will be available after grievance addressal(if any).


Relative merit list is proposed to be prepared on the basis of following criteria for CAP round in MAHCET


1. More weightage will be given for the higher percentage of marks scored in class 12 or its equivalent examination.
2. Preference will be given to the candidates who have scored more marks in class 10.
3. Preference on the basis of age will be given to a candidate who is elder.


A candidate with 99.99 percentile would definitely expect to find himself in the best placed merit position as he has scored the highest marks in MAH CET. But it may not necessarily happen because his position in merit may move downwards also due to the merit formation formula of DTE Maharashtra.


Admission to the B school through CAP and allotment of seat shall be strictly on the basis of the merit number in the respective merit list for Maharashtra State/All India candidates as per the options given by the candidate and the number of seats available for that candidate during the process of allotment. Separate  merit  list  will  be  prepared  for  admission  against  the  Maharashtra  state  seats  (Home University,  State level  and  Persons  with  Disability);


 All  India  Level  Seats  (State  level)  and  J&K  migrant (State level) candidates.


Number of candidates appear in various MBA entrance examinations. For example the candidates who have scored 99+ percentile in MAHCET and whose admission at any of IIMs, FMS Delhi, IIFT, MDI, IMT, IMI, XLRI has already got the final shape, they may not prefer the B school in Maharashtra and as such, more spaces may fall vacant.


Therefore, during  the  allotment  at  any  stage,  the  candidate  may  get  upward  shift  in  the  allotment with  reference  to  the  options filled  in  the  online  option  form  according  to  availability of seats at that point of time.


Each Maharashtra State candidate who has appeared and qualified the MAH-MBA/MMS-CET will be assigned a State level Merit Number on the basis of percentile obtained in the test. For All India seats the relevant state level merit number will be assigned to the candidates on the basis of performance in CAT/CMAT/GMAT/MAT/XAT/ATMA apart from MAH-MBA/MMS-CET. Incase, if the candidate has appeared for multiple examinations, the best percentile shall be considered to assign the merit number.
