Maharashtra State Cell ended the selection process for CAP round 2 of MHT CET 2023 on August 1st, 2023. On August 3, 2023, the MHT CET 2023 tentative seat allotment CAP 2 was announced.

The MHT CET choice submission for 2023 for CAP Round 3 will begin on August 8, 2023. The deadline for candidates to fill out the options for CAP round 3 is August 10, 2023. CAP Round 3 is being held to fill the vacant seats left over from the previous CAP round. On August 12th, 2023, MHT CET will announce the CAP Round 3 seat allotment for 2023 based on the choices entered and the vacancies available.

MHT CET Seat Allotment 2023

The MHT CET 2023 seat allotment outcome for all rounds is published online by the exam authorities through a centralised allotment process on the MHT CET 2023 official website.

Higher marks increase the probability of student admission in the top engineering colleges. The MHT CET 2023 seat assignment will be based on the selections made and the availability of seats. Once the MHT CET seat allocation is done, students can go ahead with the detailed step by step Process.

Step 1: Download the seat allotment letter. Students must visit the CET site and login to download the MHT CET 2023 provisional seat assignment letter as a pdf. The allotment letter will provide information about the assigned institution or college. They should print the letter that will be used in the admissions process.

Step 2: Attend the Admission Reporting Centre (ARC) - Following the seat assignment process, students must report to the reporting facility to confirm their seat allotment and select options for subsequent rounds of MHT CET seat allotment. Candidates can freeze, slide, or float their seats which are allotted by MHT CET.

  • Freeze: Students who are satisfied with their seat allocations and do not wish to participate in subsequent rounds of MHT CET 2023 counselling must pick the "Freeze" option.
  • Slide: Students who want to accept their assigned seat but are also open to upgrading to a higher chosen course at the same institute could select the option "Slide." It should be noted, however, that if the candidate is assigned to a higher preferred course, the previously assigned seat will be cancelled.
  • Float: Students who have been assigned a seat in prior seat allocation rounds and wish to upgrade to any course at any college/institute must select the "Float" option. If they are transferred to another course or institute, the previously assigned seat will be forfeited.
