Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - News -

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Mon­day re­fused to can­cel the Ma­ha­rash­tra Com­mon En­trance Test (MHT CET) for ad­mis­sion to en­gi­neer­ing cour­ses. A plea was moved by two stu­dents de­mand­ing that admissions this year be con­ducted based on their Class 12 ex­am­i­na­tion scores. The or­der was passed by a bench of Jus­tices Ashok Bhushan and R Sub­hash Reddy. The pe­ti­tioner rep­re­sented by ad­vo­cate Shivaji M Jad­hav cited the ris­ing num­ber of Covid-19 cases in Ma­ha­rash­tra to claim that hold­ing the ex­am­i­na­tions posed a risk to stu­dents.
