MHT CET 2022 Application Deadline Extended by two Weeks
Initially, when the entrance test cell had announced the MHT CET 2022 dates, the last date to apply was March 31, 2022, up to 11:59 pm. Going by this logic, the registration link was set to close tomorrow. However, a public notice has been issued today, announcing a 15-day extension in the registration deadline.
As per the notice, interested and eligible students can apply for MHT CET 2022 examination on or before April 15, 2022, at 11:59 pm. During this extended period, candidates will not have to bear any late fee charges, Reiterating this, the notice contained the following statement –

Previously, candidates could apply for the MHT CET 2022 examination beyond the initial deadline of March 31, 2022. They could apply from April 01 to 07, provided they bear the late fee charges of Rs.500. However, the application deadline has been extended. So, invariably, the deadline to apply late has also been revised.
Accordingly, candidates can apply for the MHT CET 2022 examination from April 16 to 23, up to 11:59 pm, with certain additional charges. It is important to note that these charges along with the application fee need to be paid online.
Exam Date Not Yet Announced
