MHCET ‘18 was conducted with 4 sections exactly as per the notification of MHCET exam released by DTE (Directorate of Technical Education). The exam was spread across 2 days, with a morning and an afternoon slot on each day. “Variety” was the theme of MHCET ’18, especially in the Verbal Ability section, which meant taking a few precious seconds longer for these new question types. The Quantitative Ability sections was also calculation – heavy. The overall level of difficulty of MHCET ‘18 was slightly tougher compared to MHCET ‘17, but standardized in both slots of each day, with quite a few questions repeated across all the 4 slots.
Reasoning (Verbal and Analytical)
As usual, Reasoning had the highest weightage in MHCET ‘18. A wide variety of questions from Direction Sense, Data Sufficiency, Syllogisms, Cause & Effect, Statement – Conclusion, Coding – Decoding, etc., were seen. Questions from Logical Puzzles had sets of 6, 5, or 4 questions in each caselet, adding up to about 35 questions in all, which were lengthy in nature, and at max, one could solve only about 2 of the caselets. The key was to pick the right sets to solve. There was a Data Structures caselet that was of medium level. 5 questions based on Data Comparison and Mathematical Operations were also observed this year. Critical Reasoning had questions based on Strengthening / Weakening Arguments, Inferences, and Resolve the Paradox. The set on Coding – Decoding had only 1 – 2 words for which one could discern the codes, but the rest had to be derived through logic, not through the standard elimination method. Overall, this section was time – consuming and the game – changer.
Ideal Time: 60 minutes
Level of Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult
Ideal Attempts: 45+
Ideal Score: 40+
This section had easy questions from the same topics of Series and Analogies, like last year. 15 questions were from series and the rest from analogies. From these 10 questions, we had to find just the last figure in 5 of the questions, and in the remaining 5, we had to find the entire pair. A prepared student can easily get 20+ correct questions in 25 minutes.
Ideal Time: 20 minutes
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Ideal Attempts: 25
Ideal Score: 20+
Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
Unlike last year, this section had relatively difficult questions. A good mix from all topics including Profit and Loss, SICI, Averages and Partnership, Time and Work, Time and Distance, and Probability, were asked. A notable 5 sets from DI of 5 questions each were asked, which included Tables, Line graphs, Bar graphs, and Pie charts. All the sets were easy, but calculation – heavy. 5 questions from Data Sufficiency were also part of this section from various topics, but were moderate to difficult. 5 questions on Data Comparison too were seen this time, like last year, which were all based on Quadratic Equations. An aspirant with good calculation speed can easily crack a decent number of questions.
Ideal Time: 40 minutes
Ideal Attempts: 35+
Ideal Score: 30+
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension
As expected, there was a spread of questions of all types, with a few unexpected inclusions and omissions. Unlike last year, Logical Discontinuity (which was asked as “Which of the following sentences are not part of the main idea?”) and Logical Continuation, did not make an appearance. There was a good focus given to RC this time as well, with 15 questions (1 passage with 7 questions and 1 with 8 questions), just like last year. The usual suspects like Find the Synonym AND Antonym (2 questions), Conjunction replacement (2 questions), Idiom usage and Word usage (2 and 3 questions respectively), Fill in the blanks (2 questions) were asked. Grammar was given substantial importance this year, with Spotting the error (9 questions), Underlined phrase replacement (3 questions), and Find the correct sentence from 5 that look similar i.e. clone sentences (2 questions). The 5 – question caselet on Parajumbles did not ask us which sentence was in which position, but had questions like “After rearrangement, how many statements change their places?”, “The given sentence should follow which of the given statements?”, etc.)
There was a set of 5 questions on Match the following, which had 3 fragments each in Columns I and II, and we had to select the pairs of fragments of each column that would form a complete sentence.
Ideal Time: 25 minutes
Ideal Attempts: 40+
Ideal Score: 35+
5 minutes should be given to mark all the unattempted questions.
Technical Analysis of Paper and Process of conducting Exam:
MHCET ‘18 had some glaring errors in the LR section, and the formatting was not consistent across questions even within the same caselet. The software interface was easy – to – use and navigate. The notable inclusion in the interface was the ability to minimise the question palette, such that the question area could get expanded. This was a very useful feature for long RCs and caselets.
A student scoring 115 – 120 should reach 99 %ile, so the cut – off for JBIMS this year could go as low as 125.
