Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension
Now, it is time to check the previous year's analysis of MAH CET in detail. It will include the opinion of test takers and subject experts as well.
The Reading Comprehensions had a slightly different look because they were divided into paragraphs marked as Paragraph (no). The first passage was quite difficult and was very reasoning-oriented with the second paragraph in the passage containing statistics. The second passage was comparatively easier. They had 1 and 2 vocab questions respectively. Ideally only these vocabulary 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.
As per the experts of IMS, 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.
There were around 15 questions in ‘Quantitative Ability’ mostly dominated by questions on Arithmetic. Questions included topics like Mensuration - Two questions, Time Speed Distance – One Question, Time and work - One question, Probability – One question, Ratio and Proportion – One question and Partnership – One question.
The section had 50 questions in total. The QA section had four sets on Data Interpretation (DI). The sets included one each on Bar charts, Pie charts, Caselet and Table based DI. The sets had questions of mixed difficulty levels and thus selection of questions was crucial.
According to IMS experts, around 34-36 questions would have been a good attempt for this section.
There were four easy questions on ‘Direction Sense Test’. On logical comparisons, five questions of easy to medium level of difficulty were included. There were five very easy questions on coding-decoding. No questions on ‘Input-Output’ and no questions on ‘Selection criteria’ were asked in the test.
The Logical Reasoning section had 75 questions (maximum number amongst others) and was dominated by questions on Non-Verbal Reasoning. The questions on Non-Verbal Reasoning were dominated by questions on arrangements. There were around 30-32 questions spread across five sets on arrangements. There were two sets on Circular Arrangement as well.
The IMS experts had stated that around 38-40 questions were indeed a good attempt.
The total number of questions in this section was 25 questions. It was slightly difficult than MAH CET 2017. There were 25 questions in the test, mostly at medium to high level of difficulty. The questions on 'complete the series or analogies' dominated this section. The questions in this test were very similar to 'Visual Reasoning' questions that appeared in earlier CET examinations.
According to the IMS experts, a genuine attempt of around 120 questions in the first slot would have helped obtain a good score.
