Lower difficulty level of the exam may have led to higher scores

 

Compared to last year, the overall difficulty level of MAH CET 2018 was lower. Logical Reasoning, which carried the highest weightage of the exam with 75 questions was the toughest section. On the other hand, Abstract Reasoning, the easiest section carried only 25 questions.

Each question carries one mark and there is no negative marking scheme for wrong answers. There is no negative marking for unattempted questions.  The total marks in the exam is 200.

 

According to DTE, the following procedure is adopted to obtain the scores:

 

(i) Number of questions answered correctly by a candidate in each objective test is considered for arriving at the corrected score.

 

(ii) The Corrected Scores so obtained by a candidate are made equivalent to take care of the minor difference in difficulty level, if any, in each of the objective tests held in different sessions to arrive at the Equated Scores*

*Scores obtained by candidates on any test are equated to the base form by considering the distribution of scores of all the forms.

 

(iii) Test-wise scores and scores on total is reported with decimal points up to two digits.

 

MAH CET Cutoff expected to increase owing to higher score

 

Owing to the overall higher score, the MAH CET 2018 cutoff for the participating institutes are expected to further go down. The final selection at the top B-schools accepting MAH CET 2018 scores such as JBIMS, SIMSREE, KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research etc. will take place through Common Admission Process (CAP) or MAH CET Counselling rounds to be conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) most likely in May.
