First Reactions 

Candidates who appeared for the MHT-CET 2018 entrance exam on 10th May found the paper extremely easy. As Physics and Chemistry concluded, the first reaction we received from students and experts is that there were hardly any conceptual questions in the paper. Almost all the questions asked in the entrance exam were either information based or formula based. 

Further, students said that they found MHT-CET 2018 to be one of the easiest engineering entrance exams. According to some, the difficulty level of the paper was not even half as compared to the JEE Mains 2018.

Another feedback received from the students is that they did not face any time management issue in both the papers this year. There were fewer calculations and some questions were even non-numerical.

All the 3 sections namely Maths, Physics, and Chemistry were of moderate difficulty level.

There were more of numerical-based questions in Physics as compared to theoretical questions.

In Chemistry, a lot of questions were asked from Chemical bonding and Organic Chemistry.

In Maths section, a lot of stress was on questions from Limits, Logs, calculus, probability, functions, and graphs. But nevertheless, the questions were not very difficult.

80% questions in all the 3 sections were from 12th class syllabus while just 10% of the questions were from 11th class syllabus.

As there were no negative marking, so one could have attempted all 150 questions.

For a well-prepared student, attempting 130 out of 150 questions was not very difficult at an accuracy of 85 to 90%.

This could result in a score of 150 plus, which is a very good score for securing a seat in the stream of choice in colleges like Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJIT), K J Somaiya and College of Engineering, Pune.

At a score of 130, one can expect a rank of close to 6000, which will also ensure sure shot admission in Top Govt Engineering Colleges and Universities.

A score of 100 is also a decent score for fetching a seat in Top 30 Engineering Colleges of Maharashtra.

As there are a lot of engineering colleges in the state of Maharashtra that offer admission on the basis of MHT CET, so one can get admission in other low ranked colleges even at a rank of 2 lakh.
