MHT-CET - B.Tech Exam Prepartions FAQ

1) What are the eligibility criteria?

Candidates must have cleared 10+2 level form the recognized board with at least 50 % aggregate to be eligible for appearing in entrance examination. Those candidates who are currently pursuing 12th class can also appear in the Examination.

2) If I have passed /appearing for (HSC)12th / Equivalent Examination from a School/Jr. College in Mumbai, how do I know if the ‘District of College’ falls under Mumbai(11) or Mumbai Suburban(12).

If your School / Jr. College is situated anywhere between Colaba and Mahim or Colaba and Sion, then select Mumbai(11) and if it is beyond Sion and Mahim, then select Mumbai Suburban(12).

3) Can a student from Nagpur take admission to college in Pune?

Off course yes but that student has to apply under 30% quota of CAP seats earmarked for students from other universities. However student from other universities can also compete for 100% seats in Autonomous colleges like COE, Pune or VIT, Pune. 

4) Is there any negative marking for wrong answers?

There is no negative marking for wrong answers.

5) Can one apply with CET score as well as AIEEE score at the same time?

Yes. AIEEE students can apply for 15% quota while CET students can apply for 65% seats. If you have given MHT-CET as well as AIEEE you can apply for both the quota seats in single option form.You are allotted -the best of both the allotments- at the end of particular CAP round.

6) What is the duration and pattern of the Examination?

The Examination will be of 3 hours i.e. from 10:00 am to 01:00 pm.

7) Are the question paper of the MHT-CET and Std. XII similar?

Although the syllabus of the MHT-CET is exactly identical to that of the Std. XII, the pattern of the question paper is entirely different vis-a-vis the Std. XII question papers. The Std. XII Exam is a subjective type exam, whereas the MHT-CET is an objective type exam. The students get less than a minute per question in Paper I as well as in Paper II and about 1.8 minutes per question in Paper III of MHT-CET. Thus accuracy and speed are the two main aspects of the MHT-CET.

8) Marking the answers takes a lot of time. Is there a faster method?

The strategy that many CET toppers have used is solving all the questions on one page, then transferring the answers to the OMR sheet. You can even use a 1.0 mm thick ball-point pen in order to mark the OMR bubbles quicker.

9) I find it difficult to finish the Maths section in time. Can I save time somehow?

The questions in CET Maths are mostly direct and involve you substituting and simplifying. If you know the formulae at your finger tips, you will save time while recalling them. So it’s a good idea to make a list of all the formulae that you find even slightly difficult to remember and then revise them before the test.

10) 23.Can you give some tips for Physics as I find it the toughest part to solve.?

Polls on CET web-portals have shown that most students find the Physics section the trickiest. This is in part because almost three-fourth of the Physics section is numerical. To counter this, you can do three things:

  • Revise all concepts before the test
  • Spend more time in Physics and less in the Chemistry section
  • Focus on the keywords and not the grammar.

11) So how much time should the Chemistry section be solved in?

There is no fixed time that one can allot as that varies from student to student, but CET toppers usually use two strategies: firstly they solve the Chemistry section before the Physics section and secondly target to solve the Chemistry section in 33 minutes. This can allow them to get an extra 10-12 minutes for the more time consuming Physics section. Also, for Chemistry, you can make a list of the difficult equations which you have mugged up, so you don't waste time in trying to remember them during the CET.

12) Even after having studied many Biology books, there are many questions which I don't know the answers of...Can I do something to guess better on questions I don’t know?

There are 2 things that you can do.  First, revise all the questions which you got wrong in any prelims/online tests in the last 2 months. Second, you can try to understand the meaning of the keyword in the question and connect it to one of the answer choices. Both these tips will help you to think clearly, quickly and even get the right answers to certain questions which you didn’t know the answers of.
