The Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT CET) 2021 is all set to be conducted from September 20, 2021 onwards. The examination will end on October 01, 2021. After qualifying MHT CET 2021 students become eligible to get admission to the various medical and engineering colleges in the state. An important strategy to get through this entrance examination is to have an efficient study plan. To get a good MHT CET 2021 score, go through these quick tips shared by the toppers.
MHT CET is very similar to the JEE Main examination but the only difference is that there is no negative marking. In that case, students have the advantage of attempting every question without losing marks. So, it is ideal to have a basic knowledge of every chapter so that a student does not have to leave any questions.
The questions for every paper of the examination whether it is Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Biology, are based on the Maharashtra State Board’s curriculum. Thus, those students who have studied in other boards like CBSE must be thorough with the state board’s curriculum. Keep in mind that during revision, do not skip a chapter.
Most toppers have laid stress on the importance of time management. Ideally, the best way to develop good time management is to attempt as many mock tests as possible. Also, try to complete each test by adhering to a fixed time of three hours. Moreover, try to have the temperament of the real examination in order to familiarize with the examination setting.
While studying Chemistry, a student should try their best to learn all the reactions and equations. What happens is that many a time, direct reaction and equation-based questions do get asked. Alternatively, toppers also advise keeping a handbook for the same. Similarly, for Mathematics, go through all the solved, unsolved and miscellaneous questions from the book. For Physics as well, practice the MCQs and numerical.
For MHT CET 2021, around 20% weightage is given to the class 11 curriculum while 80% weightage is given to the class 12 curriculum. Hence, while revising, go through the class 12 curriculum first and then brush up the knowledge of the topics of class 11.
Another tip that toppers have highlighted is that students should be thorough with the formulas. Sometimes, formula-based questions are asked that simply require the candidate to plug in the value and get the required answer. If a student has prepared a formula sheet, then revise it every day.
