MAH CET 2018 Analysis and Expected Cutoff (MBA/MMS) 

 

We bring the MAH CET exam analysis 2018 (slot wise). Let us take a look at the section-wise analysis of the exam. It’ll give the aspirants a decent idea about the exam.

 

MAH CET 2018 Analysis - Verbal Ability/Reading Comprehension (VA/RC)

 

As per IMS experts, this section had a few new types of questions this year making it slightly difficult than the last year. The section had a total of 50 questions divided into Verbal Ability or Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension. The majority of questions were from Grammar and usage-based questions. The paragraph jumble was time-consuming. Questions related to the synonym, antonyms were also there.

 

The RCs had a slightly different look because they were divided into paragraphs marked as Paragraph (no). The first passage was difficult and was very reasoning-oriented with the second paragraph in the passage containing statistics. The second passage was slightly easier. They had 1 and 2 vocab questions respectively. Ideally only these vocab questions should have been attempted along with a couple of theme-based questions from the passages. The rest should have been marked for review to come back to.

 

The overall break-up of the questions in the VARC (tentative) section across all four slots was as the following:
