DTE Maharashtra will conduct MHT CET 2018 tentatively in the second week of May 2018. The entrance test will be held for 2 papers – Paper I for Mathematics (1.30 hours) and Paper II (1.30 hours) for Physics and Chemistry in offline mode only.
Every year, over 4 lakh candidates appear in the state level engineering entrance test for admission to B.Tech and B.E. courses across Maharashtra. MHT CET had been earlier re-introduced in the year 2016, as before that (in 2014 and 2015), the state level engineering colleges would offer admission to candidates based on JEE Main score. For more details about eligibility criteria, registration, admit card, result, rank list, reservation criteria, counselling and seat allotment of MHT CET 2018, read the article below.
Important Note for Students : DTE Maharashtra has announced that the MHT CET 2018 will give 20% weightage to the 11th standard syllabus and 80% weightage will be given to 12th standard syllabus. The difficulty level of the entrance examination will also be equal to JEE Main for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and NEET for Biology.
Why is the MHT-CET Tougher this Year onwards ?
MHT-CET from 2018 onwards :
- 20% weight age in the MHT CET 2018 examination will be given to 11th standard syllabus while 80% weight age will be given to 12th standard syllabus.
- The difficulty level of MHT CET 2018 will be raised and be almost equal to JEE Main in terms of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and NEET for Biology.
- The approximate number of questions based on 11th standard will be 10 and from 12th standard will be 40.
Note : The chapter “Complex Numbers” of std. 11 has been excluded from Syllabus.
So, as you can see this year on wards not only std. 12, but students will also have to prepare the std. 11 syllabus for CET.
