MH-CET 2015 ANALYSIS


The test had 200 questions which were to be answered in 150 minutes. The surprising factor (positive for students) this year was that each questions was followed by 4 options (and not 5 as in the case of previous editions of MAHCETs).

 

Overall the questions in the test can be divided into 3 broad categories:


1. Logical and Visual/Abstract Reasoning
2. Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
3. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

 

Following is the section wise analysis of this year’s MAHCET

 

1. Logical and Visual Reasoning:


Majority of the questions in the test were from this section. There were around 25 to 30 questions based on Visual/Abstract reasoning. Of the remaining questions majority were based on chapters like Blood Relations, Coding-Decoding, Syllogisms, Arrangements, Blood Relations and Find the Odd one Out.
Some questions on Visual/Abstract reasoning were tricky and might have acted as Speed Breakers. Overall this section can be classified as easy to moderate.

 

2. Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation:


In comparison to MAHCET 2014, this year there were more questions of Quantitative Aptitude. Data Interpretation questions were in sets as well as individual ones  The questions in this section were from chapters like Percentages, Profit and Loss, SICI, Ratio and Proportion, Averages, Alligation and Mixtures, Time, Speed and Distance, Time and Work, Permutation and Combination, Probability Algebra and Geometry. In some slots there were question on Shares and Stocks, Trigonometry, Matrix and Determinant. Overall this section can be classified as easy and a student with conceptual clarity and speed could have attempted almost all of the questions.

 

3. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension:


The number of Reading Comprehension (RC) asked in the MAHCET varied across the slots. Some Slots had only 1 RC whereas some had 2 or 3 RCs. However the RCs were quite short and almost all of the questions were direct. Apart from these there were questions based on Synonyms, Antonyms, Fill In the Blanks, Find the Odd one Out, Statement and Arguments, Analogies, Grammar and Parajumbles. In grammar there were questions based on Spotting the Errors and some questions wherein a student was asked to identify the type of Noun, type of Pronoun, the Tense used in the given sentence or convert the given sentence into Passive Voice or Indirect Speech. Overall this sections can be classified as easy to moderate.

 

Final Verdict:


MAHCET 2015 was easier in comparison to the MAHCET 2014. But, this year the test was marred with technical glitches wherein the questions were not completely visible, the software was quite slow and in some instances students had to wait for 8 to 10 seconds for the question to appear after clicking the next button. Some questions even had more than one correct answer.

 

All in all MAHCET 2015 was an entirely speed based paper wherein well prepared and fast student would have had close to 190 genuine attempts. The cutoffs for this year will be slightly higher than that of previous year. A score of 150 will fetch approximately 98 percentile.
