The highest percentile of 99.99 in MAHCET 2018 has been awarded to all the 14 candidates who have scored marks between 149 to 165, as against 136 to 145 last year

With 10000 more candidates taking MAHCET 2018 exam than last year and scores going upward, you should expect higher cut offs in MBA colleges this year. Facing a fierce competition among the 98606 MAHCET 2018 test takers whose result was declared by DTE on March 19, the Cut offs at JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya, PUMBA, Welingkar, N L Dalmia are expected to go up as against last year.

Along with the individual access to the result, the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) has published the comprehensive list of successful candidates who appeared in MAHCET 2018 MBA/MMS entrance exam on March 10 and 11, 2018 in multiple sessions. The result contains the name of the candidates, their MAH CET score and percentile score.

One of the key reasons for the cut offs to go up in admission 2018 to top MBA colleges is higher score awarded to the candidates and more number of candidates scoring higher percentile.

In fact, the highest percentile of 99.99 in MAHCET is awarded this year to the score range of 165 to 149 as against 136 to 145 marks last year. This is bound to increase the cut offs to higher level.

The highest percentile of 99.99 in MAHCET 2018 has been awarded to all the 14 candidates who have scored marks between 149 to 165 as against 136 to 145 last year. This has increased the chances of higher cut offs in JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya and other top MBA colleges as compared to last year lower cut offs.

952 candidates between 99 and 99.99: Low scorers to check admission prospects
The highest percentile of 99.99 is awarded at the highest score of 165 which continues to the score as low as 149. There are 952 candidates between 99 and 99.99 percentile. The last candidate in club 99 is Wales Raymond DSouza who has scored 99.03 percentile at a score of 120 marks. A quick glimpse will bring out the fact:

It may be noted that the gap between fractional percentile change is very less and therefore the close competition with high cut offs in seat allotment cannot be ruled out.  

The scoring pattern in MAHCET 2018 is a clear indication that low scorers may not get admission opportunity in top MBA colleges through DTE CAP round. However, there are number of MBA colleges in Maharashtra who also conduct their own admission process and can offer you admission directly without depending upon DTE CAP round.

Result throwing Surprises
MAH CET 2018 result for admission to MBA/MMS 2018-20 has surprised thousands of candidates as the highest percentile of 99.99 in MAHCET is awarded this year to the score range of 165 to 149 marks. On the top of it only 1 candidate has obtained the highest score of 165 marks.

While there are 98565 candidates who have scored non-zero positive marks, 37 test takers have scored zero marks and zero percentile in MAHCET 2018 exam for admission to MBA/MMS 2018 programme at JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya and other  400 MBA colleges in Maharashtra. Result of four candidates has been withheld by DTE Maharashtra.

MAH DTE CAP Notification shortly
Based on the award of percentile scores in MAHCET 2018, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra will conduct the Centralized Admission Process (CAP) 2018 in the last week of May 2018. The notification for CAP 2018 will be out shortly.

All the candidates interested to explore the admission chances in Government regulated MMS/MBA programme will be allotted seat in one of the 400 MBA colleges in Maharashtra only through DTE CAP 2018.   

Top MBA colleges of Maharashtra may see only high scorers getting into JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya, N L Dalmia among other highly ranked colleges. The result has surprised the test takers and academicians alike as despite the higher difficulty level there is not only a jump in high scores, but also there has been a fight for scoring a high percentile at each mark scored.

JBIMS, SIMSREE: Cut off may go up to 130+
It is expected that the cut offs and the merit scores calculated in CAP round for top MBA colleges may go up for admission this year. It is possible that candidates scoring as high as 130+ may find it difficult to get into JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya, N L Dalmia among other highly ranked colleges.

JBIMS, Mumbai has clarified that it will accept MAHCET 2018 exam scores and will also participate in the DTE-CAP 2018. The admission to JBIMS will be on the same lines as adopted for other 400 MBA/MMS colleges of Maharashtra. There is no need to the candidates to apply to JBIMS separately now.

10000+ Seats for All India candidates
There are more than 40000 seats in MBA/MMS/PGDM programmes in 400+ MBA colleges of Maharashtra. Out of them 15% seats are reserved for All India category candidates. Apart from MAHCET 2018 scores, All India candidates can explore admission opportunity on the basis of CAT 2017, CMAT 2018 scores in JBIMS, SIMSREE, K J Somaiya, PUMBA, N L Dalmia and all other MBA/MMS colleges under MAHCET.
