Overall Analysis

There were hardly any difficult questions in this mock paper. Most of the questions were easy to medium so that you can attempt more questions.The computer-based test online MBA CET test comprises 200 questions from four broad sections viz. Quantitative Aptitude, Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, Logical and Abstract Reasoning. A student needs to attempt them in 150 minutes. There is no demarcation among questions from different sections; All questions are jumbled up ie you can find an RC passage sandwiched between a question on Probability and Visual reasoning. The fact that the test has no negative marking provides some much needed respite to the candidates. Given the number of questions, MH-CET is clearly a test of your speed and accuracy.

How to analyse this mock

After checking your marks for the Mock that you have taken, follow the steps given below.

STEP 1: Figuring out your Potential Score

  1. Take the Mock again (Second time) for another ONE hour. Give equal time for each sections.
  2. Attempt the questions that you have gone wrong in OR if you have more time, attempt the questions that you have previously NOT seen/read during taking the Mock.
  3. Strictly stop after ONE hour
  4. Check the marks you would have got for the ABOVE ONE HOUR Test.
  5. Check your Potential score

If you replace worst ONE hour of time that you spent on the FIRST sitting of MOCK with the new marks that you have got for the SECOND sitting, you will find your real potential score in the Mock.

You would see that if you replaced the time spent (one hour) on wrong questions and/or unattempted questions with the time spent the second time around and then calculate your marks; the marks that you get would be your real potential.

Illustration

Potential score: Your old score would have improved by at least 20 marks had you been able to choose wisely in the actual exam.

If you start doing the above for all Mock CETs then you will also get the knack of choosing the right questions and over a period of time the incremental increase in marks for the extra one-hour would reduce.

STEP 2: Solving all questions

Now solve all the questions that you have made mistakes in OR the ones that you have still not attempted after the second sitting. For any question, give about 4 to 5 minutes to solve. If you don’t get the answer, then go ahead and see the solution. Write down the solution/steps in a notebook again so that you would remember the same. Many students just read through the solution and are happy to understand the solution. But, in due course you will forget that. Make it a point to write the solution or redo the problem after going through the solutions once.

STEP 3: Improving for the next mock

Once the mock analysis is over, it is time to look ahead. You have to improve in at least two topics in Quant and probably One type (PI, BAR, TABLE etc.) of  sets in DI and One type of set in Logical Ability.

Go back to the basics of these topics that you have decided to improve for the next mock Solve the exercise in those areas and take individual tests in those areas.

For RC and Vocab, continue to spend at least 30 minutes to improve your reading speeds as well as diction. Take individual sectional tests in Verbal Area and RC area for improving the Verbal section.

Step 4: Plan for the Next Mock

Check the strategy you have used in the previous mock and decided whether you want to continue or change the strategy of attempting the paper for the upcoming mock.

 

Section wise break up of MH CET MOCK 2 Verbal Area

We have divided verbal into 3 sections – Reading, Vocabulary and Grammar.
This set consisted of many questions on Reading Comprehension. The passages were an easy read and the questions were direct so students should solve them. Many of the questions were based on Vocab (Fill in blanks, Cloze tests, Synonyms and Antonyms) with overall level of difficulty being easy to medium. Grammar questions of Error Spotting were easy to do. An attempt of about 35-40 questions from this area can be considered to be a good attempt.

Section wise break up of MBA CET MOCK 2 Quant Area

There were 50 questions from this section in this mock, a large number of questions have been based on Arithmetic, which mainly included Percentages and Ratios. The questions varied from easy to moderate in terms of difficulty level, hardly any difficult question in this section. There were few sets of Data Interpretation and Data Sufficiency questions. Students hardly spend time to practice Data Sufficiency and Data Comparison questions. Do expect 1 – 2 question from every section of Quant in this section. This set of 50 questions was easy to moderate and an attempt of about 40 questions from this area can be said to be a good attempt. However DI is always little calculation intensive and Data sufficiency is always time consuming.

Section wise break up of Maharashta CET MOCK Logic Area

This section comprised 75 questions, which we have divided into 3 sub sections namely Puzzles (arrangements based), Critical Reasoning  (verbal reasoning) and Traditional Logical reasoning questions.

Some questions on Series are always time consuming but few of them could have been attempted in no time. The 4 questions on Venn diagram and the questions on Statement Conclusion, Statement Argument, Statement Assumption and Implicit Statement were moderate in terms of difficulty level. You can also expect questions on Analogy, which were quite easy in the section. There were also symbol based sets which had questions on Mathematical Relations and Blood Relations. The remaining questions on Anagram, Input output, Coding/Decoding and Odd One Out have been reported to range from easy to moderate in terms of level of difficulty. An attempt of about 60 questions from this area can be considered to be a good attempt.

Section wise break up of MBA MMS CET MOCK Abstract Reasoning

Abstract reasoning questions consist of Visual Reasoning and at times Verbal Reasoning as well. This is the trickiest part of CET exam. The diagrams are difficult in itself but the constantly looking at computer screen is very tiring for the eyes and brain.

Finale Strategy for MBA CET exam

Questions on Quant, Logic and Verbal Ability were very easy and these were the areas where students could have maximized their attempts. On the other hand, Arrangements, Data Interpretation and Visual Reasoning could have been a bit troublesome and should have been played with care.
Few incorrect questions, across the paper, and numerous grammatical errors were reported by students which is intentionally kept in the mock as its there in actual cet paper as well. One noticeable fact was that there were quite a few questions in the Reasoning section that were picked from the IBPS and SSC tier 1 paper. Overall, a genuine attempt of about 180 can be considered good.

The fact that the test has no negative marking provides much needed respite to the candidates. Given the number of questions, MH-CET is clearly a test of your speed and accuracy. A candidate should look at attempting 180 questions in 150 minutes with 85% accuracy and then randomly marking the remaining questions. No question should be left unanswered.
As can be seen from the analysis and the pattern of the paper the focus on Logical Reasoning is very high. Statement Conclusion/ Statement Inference/ Statement argument/ Implicit statements form the crux of Verbal reasoning questions in this section. Candidates should practice well for the same. Series and pattern questions form the bulk of Mathematical puzzles in this section and can be practiced through Bank PO papers or mocks.
