TIPS TO CRACK MHT CET 2024

MHT CET 2024 is a state-level examination for all candidates seeking admission to Engineering (B.E/B.Tech) and Pharmacy (B.Pharmacy/Pharma D)  Courses,  in the most popular government/private Colleges/Institutes/Universities in Maharashtra State.  Many students compete in MHT CET 2024 for admission to these Colleges/Universities in Maharashtra and the standard of this examination is at par with JEE.  Hence, MHT CET 2024 has assumed much importance in view of its great demand and has turned out to be a difficult and challenging task for the candidates to secure the highest rank/marks in MHT CET 2024. 

The biggest task before the candidates is to target his/her efforts to enhance thinking capacity, speed of learning, and power to retain whatever learned to unravel their potential for the best possible results.

So, hard work, strong academic background, and sincere efforts with planned preparation are essential to secure the highest marks in MHT CET 2024.  The following few tips may help candidates to prepare well and enhance their chances of success in the impending MHT CET  2024.

  • Candidates must understand the syllabus and exam pattern of MHT CET 2024
  • Keep a hard copy of the complete syllabus till the examination and go through the same from time to time to ensure that no topic is missed. In accordance with the topics in the syllabus select/procure suitable study material or books.
  • Draw a timetable covering the entire syllabus leaving at least a month’s time for revision of the entire syllabus of Class 10th/11th/12th before the examination dates. Leave at least a fortnight’s time before MHT CET 2024 for revision of the syllabus.
  • Carry out appropriate analysis/review of your study pattern and find out loose ends/mistakes and make adjustments/corrections accordingly.
  • It is always advisable to make notes of all topics being studied for revision purposes.
  • Time Management in solving the problems/answers is more important. So, focus on mock tests/solving previous question papers setting a prescribed time limit,s and ensure to learn time management which will eventually help in the main examination.
  • Set appropriate goals by dividing one topic at a time and accomplish them on daily basis. Though the syllabus initially appears to the candidate as voluminous, over time, with accomplishing set goals every day, one can understand that the entire syllabus can be covered successfully before the examination.
  • Students should first attempt to study the theory part and understand the same thoroughly. Then the student should start solving the problems.  Such an approach will enable the student to understand problem-solving in a logical way that will help in solving problems correctly in the MHT CET 2024, within the timeframe.
  • List out doubts/clarifications required on the topics and seek timely help from the Seniors or Faculties from time to time.
  • Students can also consider joining a crash course, which will help them to master the subjects with a planned strategic manner with appropriate guidance from the faculties.
  • Another important tip for the students is to avoid distraction from the main goal of preparation for the examination. Strong determination alone helps the students to avoid diversion from the attention or focus on the main goal.
  • Studying non-stop for long hours would deplete the productivity of the students. Hence, students are required to take this into account while preparing their time table to ensure that there will be a minimum “recess time” to refresh themselves before commencing the next session of study. No doubt, students tend to study for long hours before examinations.
  • To enhance the productivity, it is a must to rest or relax at defined intervals, which does not mean watching blue screen.  Students should relax doing short work outs or meditation etc. which will enhance their concentration on the study.
