In a huge slide in performance levels,management aspirants who took the common entrance test in February to join B-schools in the state were shocked to see their results declared on Monday evening.Last year,close to 600 students scored over 150 out of 200,a score that brought them close to their dream of getting into top management colleges;this year merely 13 candidates in Maharashtra crossed the 150-mark.
The top score is 172;it was 179 last year.Officials at the states Directorate of Technical Education,which holds the MBA-CET,said,The paper was a lot tougher than last year.In 2009,close to 200 candidates scored over 150. In all,92,166 students registered for the MBA-CET;89,620 of them took the test.Like most management tests,this exam was also dominated by men: 68,040 males and 28,780 female candidates appeared for the test.
Information from the DTE revealed that 76 candidates scored over 140,285 crossed 130,907 got more than 120 and 2,162 bagged more than 110.The largest contingent of students 43,736 has scored between 50 and 100.A little more than 2,800 students have been declared unqualified,as they scored less than 30, said DTE officials.
The remaining candidates will move up to step two and participate in group discussion and personal interview.With such scores,the college cut-offs will fall dramatically.If students have over 130,they have a good chance of making it to a top college in Mumbai, said a faculty of Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies.According to the DTE,72,025 candidates are from within the state;the remaining others17,595were outstation students.Maharashtra has 366 B-schools with a total student intake of 34,995.
