Maharashtra MCA seekers complain about CET format | Bombay News



A few days after aspirants to the Master of Business Administration (MBA) complained about the discrepancies in the exam paper template for the current exams of the Common State Entrance Test (MH-CET), the Masters of Computer Application (MCA) applicants who appeared for the MAH-MCA CET share similar concerns. Several students pointed out on social media that the exam paper model taken this year was different, and they were not told.

The CET is the entrance test for admissions to undergraduate professional study programs, including engineering, management, architecture, hotel management, pharmacy, agriculture, and related courses, between others. After an initial delay due to the pandemic, these reviews were organized in several sessions from September 20 and will continue until October 10.

According to the official CET website, the entrance exam for aspiring MCA has a total of 100 questions divided into four subjects: mathematics and statistics (30 questions), logical / abstract reasoning (30 questions), comprehension of English and verbal skills (20 questions) and computer concepts (20 questions). Each question has two points and candidates have 90 minutes to try.

“The exam should have had questions on four topics, but we got a draft question format. Students who typically attempt sections in which they are comfortable or confident have been forced to solve questions at random, which is unfair, ”one student said on condition of anonymity. This meant that students did not have the choice of answering all the questions in a particular section and compensating for grades, which is otherwise common practice.

While the students approached the state CET cell with these complaints, officials from the state CET cell said they had not received any such complaints. “We will look into the matter when we receive complaints,” a senior official said.

Meanwhile, MBA aspirants have sought clarification from CET MBA exam paper preparers. An official with the CET state cell told HT. “The students, through a law firm, requested written clarifications from the examiners. We at the CET cell have no idea what the questions document includes and it is entirely the decision of the paper writers. So, whatever questions the students raised, we asked the paper editors for clarification, ”said a senior official from the state CET cell.
