This is the state architecture exam of maharashtra.All colleges of maharashtra both goverment and private colleges accept this results.
Example :

Sir J J college of architecture,
Academy of architecture,
L.s Raheja school of architecture,
Kamla Raheja ,
Rizvi college of architecture

Importance :

It is very important as most architecture colleges of india are situated in maharashtra and some are the best. It is a very great opportunity specially for people of maharashtra.
for others its important but no goverment seats are available and only few private seats.
The applying process and admission process are very inconvenient. To collect application form we have go to the test centers located only in maharashtra and we have to give examination in those test centers later at some date and after that again we have to confirm our documents in those test centers so very big process for outsiders.

Eligibility and Procedure :

Official website:
details of admission criteria and procedure are given in admission brohcure and some links of previous years results are also available in the official website

Study Method :

No question papers are available as they are submitted along with the answerscript after exam.
total marks 200
100 of drawing
100 of aptitude
of 100 marks drawing three questions are asked :
1st is memory drawing.
2nd is to enlarge a drawing.
convert from 2d to 3d and vice versa.
basically the exam checks your drawing skills,need to practice drawings very intensely and time is very less so good idea is to use water colours to enlarge drawing so that it is completed fast and the time has to be managed very nicely so that all questions could be attempted with adequate time.scoring in boards is also very important as in the final admission and result combined result of 50% cat and 50% boards is taken into account.   

last years information brochure contained some questions and other details of admission procedure. refer it for some help. download link :
