All You Need to Know about MHT CET

DTE Maharashtra conducts MHT CET every year, tentatively in the second week of May. 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, read the article below.

Important Note for Students: DTE Maharashtra has announced that the MHT CET 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% weightage in the MHT CET examination will be given to the 11th standard syllabus while 80% weightage will be given to the 12th standard syllabus.
  • The difficulty level of MHT CET 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 the 11th standard will be 10 and from the 12th standard will be 40.

Note: The chapter “Complex Numbers” of std. 11 has been excluded from the Syllabus.

So, as you can see this year onwards not only std. 12, but students will also have to prepare the std. 11 syllabus for CET.

How Should Students Prepare for MHT-CET?

As the toughness of the exam will be at a higher level, it is more important for students to be well-prepared for the CET. In this blog post, we have discussed in detail, how should students prepare for MHT CET.
