The Maharashtra State Common Entrance Test (MH-CET), held on Thursday, turned out to be a reasonably simple exam with students claiming it to be one of the easiest test in the recent past.
Experts had said that eventually MH-CET would be scrapped and, as in the case of the medical stream, there would be one exam pattern for engineering courses across the country in future. Hence, the state government had decided to bring MH-CET at par with the Joint Entrance Exam-Main so that students are prepared for future exams.
However, when the state government announced the syllabus and pattern for MH CET in October 2017, experts had pointed out the education department’s failure to match the JEE standards.
The MH CET exam on Thursday was a testimony to the prediction by experts. Founder of Bakliwal Tutorials Vaibhav Bakliwal said, “Authorities had claimed that they would increase the difficulty level of CET and bring it at par with JEE-Main. That was not the case at all as CET was much easier than JEE-Main.”
Bakliwal further explained, “To increase the difficulty level, they should have increased the time duration per question in CET. Asking 100 questions in 90 minutes for Physics and Chemistry makes it a speed game.”
Bakliwal also said that, overall, students who have been preparing for JEE are expected to do well in MH-CET.
IIT Pratishthan Kendra’s Durgesh Mangeshkar said, “CET did not meet even half the level of difficulty as JEE-Main. This is the easiest engineering entrance exam paper in the country and the easiest CET ever. Almost all questions are either information-based or formula-based. There is hardly any conceptual question in the entire paper.”
Students did not have any time management issue in both the papers this year as questions had minimal calculations or were non-numerical, Mangeshkar added.
