MAH CET 2018 Structure
No. of Questions
Marks per Question
Verbal Ability/Reading Comprehension
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.
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.
