You may wonder, if two candidates are tied at the same score, how can they get a unique merit rank. This is so because there are many tie - breakers. In case two candidates have the same score out of 240, the candidate having higher marks in the written test is given the preference. In case even this is the same, the person having higher marks in graduation is given preference. Then comes the HSC marks, the SSC marks and so on.  At the end of it all, every candidate gets a unique merit rank, based on which the centralised admissions take place.

Selection  Process

The selection process for admission to all management courses in Maharashtra  begins under a common umbrella in the form of a Common Entrance Test, which is held sometime between February and May. The CET tests the candidates for their analytical, mathematical and verbal skills along with their comprehension and critical reasoning abilities. Candidates scoring above a specified score are then required to undergo a rigorous final selection procedure involving group discussions and interviews.

Credits are also given for past academic performance and work experience. A total score is then computed and a merit list is prepared. Students are then offered admissions according to the existing rules and regulations prepared by the concerned authorities. Please refer to the DTE brochure for further information.
