How to Prepare for Maharashtra HSC (Class 12) Exams & MHT CET 2022 Simultaneously?

Some of the effective tips and methods to prepare for Maharashtra HSC Board and MHT CET 2022 simultaneously are explained below:

1. Get Your Syllabus Prepared | Segregate, Cut, & Align

This is a proven step to gain good results like an empirical formula. It is widely known to all candidates appearing for Maharashtra Class 12 Boards and MHT CET 2022 that 80% of the syllabus for MHT CET 2022 is from Class 12 Maharashtra Board textbooks while the rest 20% belongs to some topics from Class 11.

Segregate: As Maharashtra Board Exams occur before MHT CET 2022, orient all your focus on studying for the boards. Set aside the syllabus for Class 11 for now. Ace the theory given for Maharashtra Board Class 12 Exams 2022, and continue the daily practice of numerical problems. This way, you’ll automatically cover 80% of the portion for MHT CET 2022.

Cut: Not everyone is a genius and if you fall in the category of average students like most, you know covering each and every topic in excruciating preciseness is like carrying a boulder uphill. Sometimes, it is better to rest the topics difficult for you (preferably those with low weightage) so that your precious time is being invested instead of being wasted. Hence, it is better to cut all the topics which are not important and leave them for later, once you are finished with important topics.

Align: Now that you know the weightage given to each topic and the ones you wish to drop (for now, at least), align it from highest to lowest. Target those with the highest weightage first, then gradually come down.

2. Understand the Nature of Questions & Prepare a Schedule

Although it may be true that 80% of the syllabus for MHT CET 2022 is from Maharashtra HSC Exams, the nature of these exams is very different from each other. MHT CET 2022 is an objective type of exam while Maharashtra HSC Board Exams 2022 are subjective in their nature.

Doing theory is not enough to excel in both. Continuous practice of numerical is just as essential. It is advised to practice the MCQs once you’re done with the theory of a specific topic. You can do theory during your mornings and MCQs later. As per your preference, fix your schedule to assign appropriate amounts of time to both. Through this technique, you fall into a constant state of revision that enhances the quality of your outcome by reinforcing the information you just learned over and over again.

3. Signify Time-Topic Relationship Beforehand

This is a crucial step while preparing for MHT CET 2022 and Maharashtra Board Class 12 Exams together. Time is a finite element when it comes to exams, and managing your time will put you a step above others. Knowing the subtopics for any given topic will help you gauge the overall length of the chapter you’re going to study, and subsequently, it’ll give you an idea about the time you’d require for completing the study of that topic.

Also, it depends on the individual upon how much time do they need to study a certain chapter. For example, some may find Integration to be quite easy and would only need a couple of days to be done with it; while others might need to give this particular topic a lot more than a couple of days.

Hence, it is very important to specify how much time will you be spending on one topic and schedule accordingly. Specifying this time-topic relationship will help you divide your time in a managed manner. This will help reduce the constant pressure of 12th exams on your shoulder and you’ll be able to perform better.

Check MHT CET Subject Wise Important Topics:

MHT CET Important Topics for BiologyMHT CET Important Topics for Physics
MHT CET Important Topics for MathematicsMHT CET Important Topics for Chemistry

4. Keep Related Topics Together

This is one of those pieces of advice that rely on how well it synchronizes with the person. If you keep related topics together, you’ll find it easier to recall the previously studied concepts that are used later. For example, if you are studying Probability, you’ll require a strong base of Permutations and Combinations. So if you first study Permutations and Combinations and next directly delve into Probability, you’ll be able to excel and remember it better than going the way of Permutations & Combinations-Integration-Derivation-Logic-Trigonometry-and then Probability.

Structuring your topics this way might seem like a cumbersome process but the payoff this technique gives is worth all the effort.

5. Revise Your Class 11 Topics

While preparing for Maharashtra Class 12 Boards 2022, it is ideal to keep the previous year aside but the same doesn’t prove to be true when it comes to MHT CET 2022. Class 11 carries 20% of the weightage and holds some of the simplest topics to give your overall score a much necessary boost. Hence, it is very important for you to be in line with your 11th syllabus in order to score good marks.

There is usually a month-long gap between Maharashtra HSC Board and MHT CET Exam and this is the time when you can study all the leftover topics from Class 11 as you’ve now perfected your Class 12 topics. Use any of the four abovementioned tips (or all together) to bring out your best when covering your Class 11 topics.

All in all, give it your best and take on this one-way ticket to success. Giving Maharashtra HSC Board Exams and MHT CET 2022 is not a mountain to climb, it’s a sport to enjoy.

We wish you all the best for your exam!
