MHCET 2016 was the 1st of its kind with 4 sections in the history of MHCET exam conducted by DTE (Directorate of Technical Education). Overall paper was tough compared to MHCET 2015 but standardized as far as all the 3 slots were concerned.
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 MHCET 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 ther part of the section from various topics. They were moderate. An aspirant good with calculations 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 variety of questions which includes 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 question based on LDC was the biggest surprize this year. However, this section should have been in quick-list of an aspirant as was less time consuming and high scoring section.
Ideal Attempts: 44+
Ideal Score: 40+
