Currently, admissions to courses like engineering, law and others are based on the CET marks.

Samant said under the new system, only CET marks will be not be considered for admissions to professional courses.

"Under the present system, students are focusing only on the CET. But, after a discussion with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, it has been decided that now equal weightage will be given to the CET marks and Class 12 marks. This will help students in building a good base with Class 12 studies," Samant said.
