MHT-CET Time Management Mess

mht cetThere are plenty of students who gave CET this year and are complaining about the lack of time to complete their paper. I don’t blame them at the same time I don’t think there’s any point crying over spilt milk. Everyone this year felt that the paper was lengthy but you have to prepare yourself for such tough times. Blaming your invigilators is very convenient but the truth is that many of the students who are blaming others for their loss are getting marks in 120s and 130s (and even lower), I wonder what huge difference it would have made if the guy at the centre gave them 10 mins extra… would they have attempted 50 odd questions in 10 mins?!

If you are a medical or engineering aspirant for next year’s CET then I would advice you to be prepared for the worst. There are times when papers are given late, sometimes wrong papers are given and then taken back, sometimes they’re collected too early and don’t forget that you have to fill all the details on the answer sheet AND the question paper (it can take time) and many other bad things can happen like one of the students got up in the middle of the paper and rushed to the bathroom. So work hard on time management so that you have no excuses to give later when its too late.


MHT-CET exam tips for students aspiring to become Doctors and Engineers

MHT-CET is the most important exam for students aspiring to become doctors and engineers in Maharashtra but most students are confused about how to go about preparing for this crucial exam and what to expect in it.

CET exam success indiaHere are some tips…

  • Start preparing for CET much before time. There many coaching classes who offer CET tutions one year before the exam and its better to join these classes rather than crash courses for CET or classes that focus on HSC rather than CET.
  • Know your HSC portion well. There are no derivations or proofs asked in CET but you have to know the theories, definitions and concepts very well so do not neglect your HSC exam and study both HSC and CET simultaneously.
  • Read Textbooks. This is the best and easy way to understanding the subjects thoroughly. Do not read out of syllabus books, just stick to sanctioned books.
  • Solve MCQ books once you feel prepared with the portion. Many students score poorly in CET inspite of studying well and this is because they’re not used to the MCQ format of answering. You have to think quickly and make decisions in seconds and for that you need to get some practice.
  • Prepare Physics well. Most students lose marks in Physics so be careful. Solve a lot of MCQs and get all your doubts cleared. Also, time management in Physics is also very important.
  • Be mentally calm. Do not be under too much pressure or stress as this might seriously affect your performance. You cannot think well when you’re nervous so do not get tensed.
  • Keep other options open. Be well prepared for CET but do not depend entirely on this one exam for your future. Give other entrance exams which have similar portion, it will help take off some pressure.
  • But the most important tip is to study regularly throughout the year. You cannot cram the night before the CET exams. You have to prepare yourself well in advance. Avoid watching too much TV, surfing the net or going out during this year. Be focused and determined.
