Maharashtra State Council of Examination, Pune recently notified the change in date of this examination. Previously it was scheduled to be held on 27th December, 2015 but now the test to take place on 16th January, 2016, notified MSCE. Exam was postponed because the dates were clashing with National Eligibility Test (NET) 2015. It really was a good decision by director of authority as it will allow some more preparation period to the candidates.
