MHT CET Paper Pattern 2023

MHT CET Paper Pattern 2023

MHT CET is an entrance test conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education to rank 12th-standard students for admission to bachelor’s programs. The board oversees counseling to allot seats to students in government and private colleges based on their performance in the exam and corresponding cut-off ranks for programs.

Mode of examination

MHT CET is a computer-based test conducted in two shifts. The first shift begins at 9 AM, with the last entry from candidates allowed at 08:45, and concludes at noon. The second one starts at 02:00 PM and ends at 5 PM.

Groups of papers

There are two groups of subjects for students to choose from PCM and PCB. Candidates can appear for either one or both. The exam board urges students who appear for both groups to note that the scores of physics and chemistry are not interchangeable among the groups.

Exam pattern for group PCM

The type of questions asked are Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), and each question gives four options to choose the correct one. Candidates have three hours to answer 150 questions: 90 minutes to attend 100 questions of physics and chemistry combined and the other 90 minutes to answer 50 questions of mathematics.

While the correct answer to each question in physics and chemistry awards one mark, the same for mathematics gives two marks.

Exam pattern for group PCB

The paper pattern of physics and chemistry in PCB is the same as in PCM. Unlike mathematics, biology papers contain 100 questions. Each correctly answered question awards one mark. Hence, PCB asks 200 questions. In addition, biology has two sections: zoology and botany, with 50 questions from each part.

Note: once a candidate logs in and chooses a section, for example, physics & chemistry, they cannot

switch to the other segment (maths or biology) until they finish the first one.

Syllabus and weightage

CET questions examine candidates for the syllabus from the 11th and 12th standards. While 80 % of questions are on concepts from the entire syllabus of the 12th, the remaining 20% are from the 11th class. Every year, the state CET cell of Maharashtra updates the list of concepts from class 11 from which questions are framed. Candidates can refer to the CET brochure for the list and focus on those topics instead of relearning the entire syllabus.

Groups and prospective degree programs

Candidates who know their choice of bachelor courses must be aware of the groups mandatory to gain admission to selective programs. 12th science students who have opted for combinations other than PCMB appear for the PCM group to get admission to engineering courses. However, students with PCMB need to be mindful of their choice.

- Courses that accept either PCM or PCB

Bachelor of Science(B. Sc.) (Honors) in agriculture, horticulture, agri-business management, and community science. Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in biotechnology and other branches.

- Programs that mandate PCM

B. Tech in food technology and agriculture engineering

- Courses that mandate PCB

Bachelor of fishery science and BSc honours in forestry.
