The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra official website which was supposed to release the results of MAH-CET 2015 exams for admission to MBA and MMS post graduate courses today on March 25, crashed for over two hours on the crucial day.

More strangely, when the site resumed after hours of remaining down, it neither had the results nor had any information on when actually the results will be declared.

Thousands of students who appeared for the coveted exam held on March 14 and 15 were hooked to internet right through the morning to see their results.

Initially it was reported that the results would be decalred in the morning on March 25. Some other news portals however reported that the results will be declared at 05:00 in the evening.

Till 05:00 p.m. however students could not see the results, and to further shock them the DTE Maharashtra website server crashed due to heavy load.

The site resumed after few hours but it niether had the results nor any information regarding it. Despite trying several times, the DTE authorities did not respond till 06:30 p.m..

Out of the total 60,292 aspirants, who had registered, over 57,000 had appeared for the test held on March 14 and 15 this year. Compared to previous exams, this was found to be a very high turnout percentage, as per the data released by DTE, Maharashtra.

DTE data also shows that 55,998 registered students out of the total were from Maharashtra state whereas 4,294 candidates were from OMS category.

Despite some technical glitches, the overall examination was conducted smoothly. Earlier, the DTE has also announced that it has changed the evaluation criteria and questions with errors will not be considered for marking.

The DTE after complaints by the students decided that the number of questions to be evaluated in each session of the exam would be reduced in accordance to the number of ‘wrong questions/answers’ appeared in the said slot.

As such the evaluation of answer sheets will remain limited to the correct questions followed by correct answer options. A process of Standardized equi-percentile shall be adopted in the evaluation process while awarding marks to the test takers.

MAH-CET 2015 had questions to complete the concluding part of the sentence, and also had had some questions on jumbled sentences and core grammar. There were also questions asking to fill in the blanks.

Questions on error corrections in sentences were similar to the ones that appear in various recruitment examinations of banks, insurance companies, central and state government exams.

There was a section on analytical reasoning, verbal and non verbal reasoning. Questions in quantitative aptitude section were attemptable but time consuming.

This is not the first time official website crashed on the results day. In December 2014, the Common Admission Test (CAT) website has also crashed on the crucial day.
