Mangesh Karad, president of PERA, said this year the MHT-CET is scheduled for September 4 and, hence, to speed up the admission process, PERA decided to hold its own test earlier. The last date for registration for PERA CET is on August 23.
The association will announce the results of online PERA CET-2021 on September 6, based on which students would be able to take admission to professional courses like engineering, bioengineering, marine engineering, design, fine arts, food technology, pharmacy, management, education, architecture, law and hotel management.
