Maharashtra CET 2014 to have negative marking

Directorate of Medical Education & Research (DMER), Maharashtra is all set to introduce negative marking for the Medical Common Entrance Test (CET) for the year 2014.

DMER conduct CET for MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BHMS, B.Sc nursing and medical courses admissions for the year 2014.

According to the DMER officials, one correct answer would get four marks; in case of a wrong answer, one mark would be deducted.

According to sources, around 1.75 lakh candidates are expected to take the CET in 2014.

"We have sent a proposal in this regard to the medical education and research ministry early this month. The ministry's nod (official) is yet to come," said a highly-placed DMER official.

Earlier, DMER had considered the NEET UG scores for admission to fill the state medical courses seats.

In 2014, DMER is conducting the separate CET for medical courses. They have decided to follow the pattern and syllabus of the NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test).

The online application for the CET will be available in last week of February 2014.

Candidates are advised to visit the website regularly for further information on the CET.
