This year Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET) will have one major change. Students will not simulataneously opt for Biology and Mathematics They have to choose either the Mathematics group or Biology group. This change will take place in the CET to be held between April 13 to 23, 2020. Till the MHT-CET 2019, there were three groups MM (Mathematics group), BB (Biology group) and MB (Mathematics-Biology). This system started way back when combined CET was conducted for the admissions to engineering and health sciences courses.
Some students could not be able to decide whether to go for engineering or opt health sciences. Such students had the choice of opting MB, which is for both-- engineering and health sciences. After the introduction of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for the admissions to health sciences courses, MHTCET remained for the admissions to engineering alone. Three years ago MHT-CET was made compulsory for the admissions to Agriculture, Pharmacy, Fisheries, Dairy Technology courses. For engineering students are supposed to take the MM group where the test of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics is conducted. For the BB group, Biology replaces Mathematics.
Those want to go for both had a choice of MB group. This year the Government has not put this option for the students. Now students either have to opt MM or BB.
