Up-to-dated news will assist you to be well prepared for the entrance examination. After all, this is not an overnight process and you must start preparing for the exams before a long time of the exam schedule.

Well, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) is yet to propose the alterations in pattern and syllabus of the entrance examination to the State Government. If the changes are sanctioned by the government, it will be followed from the 2018-2019 academic year.

Reasons to change the exam pattern and syllabus:

The problems or hurdles, noticed in the medical admission examination this year, has prompted the Directorate of Technical Education to create those changes. Innumerable medical aspirants have faced troubles when the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) became compulsory at the last moment for all dental as well as medical courses.

Keeping this in mind, the director of DTE, Dayanand Meshram remarked, “This year’s medical admissions left many aspirants from the state high and dry as they had prepared for the state Common Entrance Test (CET) instead of the NEET, which is based on the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus. Foreseeing a similar situation in engineering admission process, the DTE is mulling a change in the CET. Although the changes are yet to be proposed to the state, if approved by the state government the changes will be applicable from the academic year 2018-19.”According to him, the main purpose of NEET was to establish transparency in the medical selection procedure and this is the main factor for which these crucial changes have been made for the engineering entrance examination.

Syllabus of CET in Maharashtra:

The syllabus of Common Entrance Test (CET) in Maharashtra is based on the syllabus of class XII of the state board. On the contrary, the syllabus of JEE is based on the syllabus of XI and XII of the CBSE board.

Well, in accordance with Dayanand Meshram, “If the JEE becomes mandatory for all admissions, aspirants will have to study the CBSE syllabus for both the years.” So, this is understandable for what the alterations have been made.

Not only that but also there is another reason which has forced the DTE or Directorate of Technical Education to make such changes in the pattern along with the syllabus. The Director of DTE has also added that the noticeable developments in NEET are other significant aspects for this step of DTE. Lastly, he has clearly mentioned that whatever the decision is that would be taken shortly so that the educatees of the upcoming batches don’t have to fall under difficulty.

So, keep your eyes on the upcoming news and pay heed to what is going to be told by the Directorate of Technical Education. That would certainly help you to get through the engineering entrance examination with good and enviable scores.
