    MAH CET 2018 MBA Result Analysis

    MAH CET 2018 MBA result was announced by the DTE Maharashtra on 19th March 2018. The MBA CET Result threw up several surprises this year.

    In total, 14 candidates who scored between 149 - 165 marks have been awarded the highest percentile of 99.99. Last year, the highest percentile of 99.99 was awarded to candidates who scored in-between 136 – 145 marks.

    As compared to last year, this year 10000 more candidates appeared for the MAHCET exam, and the scores went high as well. This clearly suggests higher cut offs in MBA colleges this year. Cut offs of reputed college accepting MAHCET score like PUMBA, JBIMS, K J Somaiya, N L Dalmia and Welingkar are expected to go up.

    MAH CET 2018 - MBA Top Scorers

    The highest percentile of 99.99 in MAHCET exam is awarded to 14 candidates who scored between the score range of 149-165. This will certainly result in higher cut offs in colleges like JBIMS, K J Somaiya and Welingkar.

    952 candidates score above 99 percentile

    The highest percentile of 99.99 is awarded to candidates who scored in-between 149-165 marks. There are 952 candidates in total who appeared in the list of 99 above percentile range. The last in the list of 99 percentile was a candidate whose score was 120 marks. This is the break-up of percentile and score range for MAHCET 2018 exam:

    Score range

    Percentile range

    Number of candidates





    99.98 - 99.90



    99.88 – 99.5



    99.44 – 99.03



    98.93 – 98.07


    After closing observing the gap between fractional percentile change, it is found that the change is too less, which will certainly result in tough competition in seat allotment when it comes high cut offs range. It is clear that candidates with low scores cannot get admission in top MBA colleges through DTE CAP round. Nevertheless, there are number of good colleges in Maharashtra who conduct their admission process and can offer admission to candidates with low scores.

    DTE CAP Notification Date

    The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra will be conducting the Centralized Admission Process (CAP) in the month of May, 2018. This test will be based on percentile scores awarded to students in MAHCET Exam.

    It’s only through DTE CAP 2018, candidates willing to take admission in Government Authorized MMS/MBA programme will be allotted seat in one of 400 MBA colleges in Maharashtra.

    Cut offs at top MBA Colleges expected to rise

    The cut offs and merit scores calculated in DTE CAP round for reputed MBA colleges are expected to go up for admission this year. It is speculated that candidates scoring as high as 130+ may find it difficult to get admission into JBIMS, N L Dalmia, K J Somaiya and Welingkar.

    JIBMS, Mumbai will accept MAHCET 2018 exam score and also take part in DTE CAP 2018 Round for selection of candidates. Candidates don’t need to apply to JBIMS separately now.

    Seats for All India candidates

    There are more than 40,000 seats in 400+ MBA colleges accepting MAHCET score for admission to MBA/MMS/PGDM programmes. Out of all these seats, 15% seats are reserved for All India category candidates. Candidates can also take admission on the basis of CMAT and CAT scores in colleges accepting MAHCET score.

    All seats will be allotted in MBA colleges through Centralized Admission Process (CAP) on the basis of MAHCET 2018, CMAT 2018, and CAT 2017 exam scores.

    Shortly after the MAHCET 2018 result declaration, the DTE Maharashtra will open the registration process and release the date for Centralized Admission Process (CAP) 2018, which will ensure the seat allotment process in 400 different MBA colleges in Maharashtra.
