Important Instructions 

MHT CET is a pen paper based test. Candidates will be provided with OMR answer sheets with each question paper. At the end of each paper, candidate must hand over the OMR Answer sheet to the invigilator. Candidates are permitted to take the Question Booklet outside the exam centre. Following are some instructions to follow while answering on OMR sheet.

The candidates are required to mark the correct answer by blackening the corresponding circle against the serial number of the question in the answer sheet with black ballpoint pen only.

Candidate should not use any other method for answering in OMR sheet like Half circle, tick mark, or cross etc. This may not be read by the machine.

The candidates must fully satisfy themselves about the accuracy of the answer before darkening the appropriate circle, as no change in the answer once marked is allowed.

Answer sheet will be evaluated by computerized scanning method only. So, candidates should completely darken one and the only one best response (circle).

Please do not fold the OMR sheet and do not make any stray marks on it.
