Mumbai, Maharashtra: Around 1.89 lakh students appeared for MH-CET for admissions to health science courses including MBBS and BDS in the state on Thursday.
Around 5,000 of the 1.94 lakh registered for the test remained absent.
Though a few students found the physics section to be on tougher side, the exams were conducted smoothly across 507 sub-centres in 35 districts in the state.
According to reports, within 15 days, the Directorate of Medical Education and Research will publish the answer key with students' OMR sheets and even the question papers for the students to verify their answers.
The results will be declared in the first week of June, said the director Pravin Shingare.
This year, the state government scrapped the negative marking policy. Last year, one mark was deducted for every wrong answer. The test was based on the state board syllabus this year after a decision taken by the state government.
