VERDICT after all slots:

  • Both the slots of CET-2020 were more or less on similar lines and overall slightly easier than CET 2019. A few new question types were introduced in the VARC, LR and QA sections

  • LR Section was little bit more difficult than the last year

  • As usual, CET 2020 consisted of 200 questions to be attempted in 150 minutes with NO Sectional restrictions

  • Since there is NO Negative Marking in CET, candidates are expected to attempt all 200 questions

  • *IMS estimate of good attempts refers to the serious attempts and excludes the randomly marked answers

Test of Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (50 questions)

VARC consisted of 50 questions with 35 VA questions and 15 RC questions. Overall, in both the slots the section was easier but very lengthy than in CET 2019. There were 15 Reading Comprehension questions set on 2 passages with 7 and 8 questions. All the passages were easy to read and comprehend and many of the questions could be answered without cross checking. Most of the Reading Comprehension questions were inference-based and a few of them were based on contextual vocabulary.

The VA section had a combination of new and old question types. There was a new type of match the column question, which had three columns and three rows with a sentence fragment in each cell; one is expected to match them to form grammatical sentences(the first column is fixed). There were phrase-replacement questions, where a highlighted phrase was to be replaced with the correct phrase (or combination of phrases) from the given choices. Some of the old types included:

  • Spotting the error: a sentence with 4 highlighted parts, two of which have errors.

  • Word usage: a set of 3 words used in 4 different ways (in 4 sentences).

  • Vocabulary: a sentence with 5 highlighted words in shuffled order.

The options in most questions were combinations of given choices, like A&B, C&E etc. This made the option elimination process rather easy. Overall the section was easy.

The questions on Non-Verbal Reasoning were dominated by questions on arrangements. There were 41 questions spread across 7 sets. One set was Circular arrangement, one on Linear arrangement, one on Two rows, one on Vertical Arrangement (stack of boxes), one on scheduling and one on scheduling + Matrix. The sets were lengthy and time consuming. Two (or at the most 3) sets can be solved comfortably.

There were 5 questions on Logical Comparison (easy), 5 questions on sentence based coding (easy), 1 set of 4 questions on Directions (Moderate) and 3 questions on data sufficiency. A new question type was there in the test. There were 3 questions in this category.

The Verbal Reasoning questions were largely easy. There were altogether 16 Verbal Reasoning questions and majority of them structured Critical Reasoning Questions like, strengthen the argument, weaken the argument etc. There were four syllogisms of three statements and a couple of questions on implicit statements etc. Some sets in Logical Reasoning – especially those on arrangements - were on the difficult side.

Following is the summary of the approximate break-up of this section for both the slots.

Verbal Ability/Reading Comprehension (VA/RC)

In this section of MAH CET 2019, candidates who took the exam on March 9, as per the exam analysis of MAH CET, they found grammar as moderately difficult while vocabulary and comprehension reading was relatively easy. With the right approach, candidates could have easily attempted at least 35 to 38 questions. There were three passages which the candidates had to answer the corresponding questions.

Let us take a look at the last year's section-wise analysis of the exam. It’ll give the aspirants a decent idea about the exam.

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:

A set of 5 questions on ‘Data Sufficiency’ contained questions from various topics and ranged from Easy to Moderate level of difficulty. A medium – difficult level set of 6 Number series questions was asked for finding the ‘wrong term in the series’.
