This week’s big entrance exam is Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MAH-CET) which will be held on Sunday, February 21, 2010. MAH-CET is the gateway for the MBA schools that come under the various universities of Maharashtra. JBIMS and We School are some of the top MBA Schools that accept MAH-CET scores.
In MAH-CET 2009 the number of questions were 200. In this MBA entrance exam there is no negative marking. Though there is no particular section-wise segregation in the paper, the areas which are tested are Analytical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, Non verbal Reasoning, Data Interpretation, Data Sufficiency, Quantitative Ability, Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension.
The 150 minutes exam will be held in 12 cities in India. The cities are: Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mysore and Raipur.
Tips for cracking MAH-CET 2010By now you have taken most of the MBA entrance exams which test you on the similar areas like the Quantitative Ability, Verbal Ability, Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, Data Interpretation and Data Sufficiency. If your basics are strong, you won’t face much trouble answering the questions.
But the paper is different from other entrance exams in a way that it does not have any negative marking system, and the paper is mainly speed based. So you have to leverage on attempting more and more questions and solving them accurately. “Be prompt in mental calculation as it will save much time of yours and contribute in maximizing attempts,” an expert from an MBA test prep institute suggested.
Practice as much as possible the sample papers and previous year’s MAH-CET paper to increase your chances. Make it your goal to attempt at least 180 to 185 questions. Start with your stronger section and gradually move towards the not so comfortable section.
In the last week before MAH-CET 2010, do not take more than two to three mock tests. Try and analyze your previous mocks. Get all the conceptual doubts cleared and don’t forget to revise the important formulae.
