There were many questions in Verbal Ability section which were new and not known how to solve by the test takers. Logical Reasoning section also had different type of questions with more questions on blood relations.

 

Surprise Elements in MAHCET 2018 exam
Following are the important changes in the exam which surprised the test takers:

  • No questions on close test passages
  • Question pattern on Para jumbles were changed. A combination of para completion and para jumble. The right place where the short para could be inserted had to be chosen. It was opposite to regular random para jumble
  • Questions on multiple statements placed in the exam
  • New type of Vocabulary questions introduced. A long word was written and the number of words had to be prepared with specific selected letters from the long word
  • Matching the pairs of vocabulary words
  • More questions on critical reasoning and syllogisms in Logical reasoning
  • Linear puzzles questions with Blood Relationship and many more such questions with blood relationship included in it
  • 3 sets of Data Interpretation in Quant section

Complete Analysis       
MAHCET 2018 exam on March 10 was on changed pattern and different type of questions in Verbal Ability, Logical Reasoning were placed in the exam. The test was marked with a lengthy and difficult Logical Reasoning but moderate Abstract Reasoning. Quantitative Aptitude section remained moderate, Verbal Ability was found difficult to solve. Overall exam difficulty level was similar to last year with expected cut off at JBIMS remaining around 135 to 140.

 

MAHCET 2018 exam in slot-1 and slot-2 began on time on March 10, 2018 at 10AM and 2PM respectively.  The test is conducted in multiple sessions by DTE Maharashtra in 2 days test window on March 10 & 11, 2018 across the country.  Session timings for both the days are from 10AM to 12.30PM and from 2PM to 4.30PM.  At some centres the test had interruptions due to minor technical glitches and computer systems were getting disrupted during the test duration. However, all the answers marked by the candidates were automatically saved which gave a sign of relief to the test takers.

 

Candidates gasping for more time
The MAHCET 2018 test paper which was held as online computer based test comprising 200 questions left test takers gasping for more time as with total allotted time of 150 minutes, less than one minute was available to solve a question. Candidates had to choose one of the 5 answer options which again demanded a little more time even after using any tip and trick to solve the question.

 

The only positive was that there was no negative marking and the candidates fighting against the shortage of time resorted to more guess work.

 

MAHCET: Exam conducted by IBPS
MAHCET 2018 is conducted by IBPS which is as per standard layout of IBPS tests. At a few test venues, some of the test takers faced difficulty of system-hang for a brief span, but it got rectified or the students were allotted alternative systems.

Verbal Ability section MAHCET 2018 had a major change in the question pattern. The section consisted of questions based on errors in Grammar, contextual use of Vocabulary, English Language usage, Para completion, new type of para jumble, Synonyms Antonyms among other topics. 

 

Questions based on RC passages were doable although a few of them were difficult and very close ones. Questions on Verbal Ability also included Verbal reasoning and were moderate to difficult. Out of the 50 questions in this section, 12 were based on short Reading Comprehension passages while remaining others were on Verbal Ability and Verbal reasoning.

 

The section had mixed level of difficulty. Number of questions based on RC passages like spotting out correct contextual vocabulary usage, phrase, synonyms, antonyms were not difficult.

 

Test takers found it difficult and time consuming to solve the questions based on grammatical errors. Many candidates lost the track of the subject, predicate in the sentences formed with the grammatical errors and found them tricky enough.

 

Questions like completion of paragraph, choosing the correct sentence was another challenge for the students as the options were very close. The CAT like question in picking out the odd sentence out of the paragraph was not very difficult to solve.

 

Reading Comprehension passages were not very long and were doable. The questions based on both the RC passages could be attempted with a little concentrated reading of the passage. The questions based on RC passages had many vocabulary based questions which were not very difficult.

 

Picking out the errors in parts of sentences or choosing the ‘No error’ option, in some cases was also very difficult. There were questions followed by answer options to replace the bold part of the sentence with the correct answer. The sentences were based on use of tenses, grammar, pronouns, verbs, conditions etc.    

 

The overall types of questions that appeared in Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension section in MAHCET 2018 is:

Topics of questions
Number of questions
Difficulty level
Reading comprehension passages – 600 to 800 words
12
Moderate
Vocabulary (Synonyms, antonyms, contextual usage, formation of words with specific letters, matching the words)
15

 5

 4

 8

 6
Moderate to difficult

Important note on Verbal Ability Test
Questions on error corrections in sentences were similar to the ones as appear in various recruitment examinations of Banks, Insurance companies, Central and state Governments.  Sentences were divided in four sections and the error from one of the sections had to be spotted. If there was no error option 5 of ‘ No error’ had to be marked as answer.

 

Another type was that of re-writing the parts of sentences containing errors. The question sentence had one part marked in bold and the test taker had to figure out whether there is any error in that part of the sentence. 5 answer options followed the question. In case there was an error, candidate had to choose the right answer option and if it had no error, option 5 had to be marked.

 

The questions were formed on core grammar like Active passive; reported speech; conditionals; modifiers and picking out correct synonyms and antonyms. Apart from this, moderate questions on analogy also made their presence in Verbal Ability section.

There were questions to place the para to fill in the blanks in a paragraph. With simple and correct understanding of grammar and vocabulary usage, candidates could answer the same well.

 

The RC passages were short but were followed by number of questions including questions like synonyms, antonyms as used in the passage. The level of difficulty was moderate but the options were close and time was short.

 

Candidates who could get around 32-34 questions correct in this section, would improve their overall percentile to a good extent to get admission in one of the top MBA colleges

In the changed pattern total questions in this section have been reduced to 50. Questions on error corrections in sentences were similar to the ones as appear in various recruitment examinations of Banks, Insurance companies, Central and state Governments.  Sentences were divided in four sections and the error from one of the sections had to be spotted. If there was no error option 5 of ‘ No error’ had to be marked as answer.

 

Another type was that of re-writing the parts of sentences containing errors. The question sentence had one part marked in bold and the test taker had to figure out whether there is any error in that part of the sentence. 5 answer options followed the question. In case there was an error, candidate had to choose the right answer option and if it had no error, option 5 had to be marked.

 

The questions were formed on core grammar like Active passive; reported speech; conditionals; modifiers and picking out correct synonyms and antonyms. Apart from this, moderate questions on analogy also made their presence in Verbal Ability section.

 

There were questions to fill in the blanks with appropriate words in a short paragraph. With simple and correct understanding of grammar and vocabulary usage, candidates could answer the same well.

 

The RC passages were short but were followed by number of questions including questions like synonyms, antonyms as used in the passage. The level of difficulty was moderate but the options were close and time was short.

 

Candidates who could get around 30-32 questions correct in this section, would improve their overall percentile to a good extent to get admission in one of the top MBA colleges

Questions on Data sufficiency, arrangement needed more time to solve. It would be better that the candidates appearing in the exam tomorrow should solve them after attempting other questions from the section.

This section included Analytical Reasoning, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. The first part was on Logical reasoning followed by second part on Abstract Reasoning. There were 75 questions of varying type in the first part while the second part on Abstract Reasoning contained 25 questions.

The first part had questions set following the given data; questions on series, statements, true false among others. Second part had questions like formation of words in a coded language and the candidates were required to find out the correct code for the given word.  Questions on series, arrangements, puzzles were although not very difficult but consumed a lot of time. A good number of questions on Visual reasoning also appeared in the exam. Both types of reasoning taken together, constituted 100 questions out of total 200 questions.
