Aaditya demands that MH-CET marks be communicated to students and answer sheets given to them

Demanding transparency in the recently conducted Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MH-CET) engineering exams in the state, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray demanded that students' marks be declared and answer sheets be given to them. Addressing a press conference here, he said the CET was held in a “strange” manner and the exams for two papers were held in 30 batches. Of these, one paper was held in 24 batches. “We demand that students be shown the answer sheets and their marks be declared. In that case, the toppers should also be announced,” he said. Referring to allegations of irregularities in NEET and cancellation of UGC-NET exam, the Sena (UBT) leader alleged that the central and state governments have decided to “destroy” the future of students. The MH-CET is conducted by the Maharashtra government. Its main purpose is to ease the admission process for professional courses like engineering, management, pharmacy, agriculture, law, medicine, AYUSH and fine arts. The exams contained 54 errors and students raised 1,425 objections, Thackeray claimed, adding that in an exam having multiple choice questions, all four answer choices were wrong. The results of the students were announced in the form of percentiles, the former minister said. “Since an exam was conducted in 24 batches, there were cases where some exams were difficult and some were easy. Those with fewer marks got higher percentile and those with more marks got lower percentile,” he said. How can the exams be set in this way and why has the head of the agency conducting the exam not been suspended so far, Thackeray asked. He said the percentile was wrongly formulated.
