About MH-CET

MH-CET (Maharashtra Common Entrance Test) for MBA/MMS/PGDM courses for the associated institutes of Maharashtra is conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), a Government Authority in Maharashtra. This aptitude test is a state level exam, which was re-introduced in 2014 by DTE after giving it a break for a year in 2013 when the admissions were done on the basis of CMAT.

The admission is a two-step process:

  1. Aptitude Test (Online Test)
  2. Centralised Admission Process (CAP Round)

Rules by DTE also govern the aspects of the Entrance Test, Centralised Admission Process (CAP) and it also gives the rules and information regarding the distribution of seats under various heads i.e CAP seats, institute level seats, minority seats etc., various types of candidates, details of the reservation of seats, fees concession offered to eligible candidates, details of the Centralised Admission Process, details of the admission rounds and institute-wise information.

MH-CET 2016 Analysis

Paper Analysis

MH-CET 2016 was the first of its kind, with 4 sections, in the history of MH-CET exam conducted by DTE (Directorate of Technical Education). Overall, the paper was tough compared to MH-CET 2015 but standardized as far as all the 3 slots were concerned.

Abstract Reasoning

This section was one of the easiest sections experienced this year. Same set of standard questions were asked. 20+ questions were from series and rest from analogies or odd-one out. A prepared student can easily chalk down 22+ correct questions in 18 minutes.

Ideal Attempts: 24
Ideal Score: 22+

Reasoning (Verbal and Analytical)

As usual, reasoning had the highest weightage in MH-CET 2016. A wide variety of questions from syllogisms, critical reasoning, statement-assumptions, statement-conclusions, statement-course of action, cause and effect were seen. Questions from Arrangements and Puzzles had sets of 10 x 2, 9 x 2 and 7 x 3 variable structure which were lengthy in nature. Other basic and easy questions from
Coding-Decoding, Directions, Blood Relations were the singletons. A set of data structure was a bit difficult and time consuming to crack.

Ideal Attempts: 50+
Ideal Score: 46+

Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation

Unlike last year, this section was considered as relatively tough section which was the easiest last year.
A good mix from all topics including linear & quadratic equations, percentage and its applications, ratio and its applications and geometry were asked. Less direct questions and more questions were based on calculations. 4 sets from DI including Tables, Line graphs, Pie charts and caselets were asked. 2 sets were easy, one was moderate and one calculative. 10 questions from DS also were a part of the section from various topics. They were moderate. An aspirant good with calculations would take this section before others, however, should not give much time in this section.

Ideal Attempts: 32+
Ideal Score: 29+

Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

This section had a variety of questions which included synonym, antonym, spellings correction, spotting the grammatical error, parajumbles and cloze test. It also had 2 RCs of 5 questions each. Both were short and easy. 5 questions based on LDC were the biggest surprise this year. However, this section should have been in the quick-list of an aspirant as it was less time consuming and high scoring section.

Ideal Attempts: 44+

Ideal Score: 40+

Technical Analysis of THE Paper and THE Process of conducting THE Exam

MH-CET 2016 had fewer errors and was more standardised across all the slots. Good software interface.

Conclusion

A student scoring 135+ should reach 99.7%ile.
