Nimisha: I wanted to ask whether IIT can help in cracking mht cet
SudhanshuSinhal: Hi Nimisha, the answer is yes and no. Yes because IIT will force you to understand the tough questions. But IIT is based on the CBSE syllabus and moreover the MHT-CET has hardly a few difficult questions. The MHT-CET is relatively easy but VERY DIFFERENT than IIT; for eg. in CET you must know the answer to EVERY question, which is not the case in IIT. Thus IIT will not really be of too much help in doing well in MHT-CET.
King: People are saying that the state will cancel the CET and make college admissions totally on the basis of HSC marks. Any idea if that's true?
SudhanshuSinhal: I've been asked that question by many in the education industry but as yet there does not seem to be clear consensus on this. My view is that if it is scrapped, the students engineering/medical future will once again depend on the marks given by a human examiner as opposed to a precise error-free OMR scanner that the MHT-CET uses. This may not be such a good idea.
Nimisha: I wanted to ask whether CET can be cracked with IIT or does it need any extra coaching completely based on CET
SudhanshuSinhal: Nimisha, that is for each student to decide for themselves, but thinking that IIT will help you crack the MHT-CET also may be wrong. To give both importance is advisable because the IIT is a 5% chance. Thus it may be good to take a separate MHT-CET course.
Cinna: How come HSC syllabus help in MHT-CET???
SudhanshuSinhal: Hi Cinna, there are 75 Chapters in MHT-CET. Each on of these 75 Chapters is the same as in HSC. HSC requires a clear presentation which automatically helps you have clearer concepts. The MHT-CET is a purely CONCEPT-ORIENTED test, and thus having clear HSC concepts gives students a huge edge in MHT-CET.
King: So the CET's based on HSC syllabus? Seems like the state govt might cancel the CET and make admissions on the basis of HSC scores only, quite a few people're saying that... any idea if that's true?"
SudhanshuSinhal: The MHT-CET is based 100% on the HSC syllabus.
Nimisha: Is CET going to get cancelled for our batch or for the coming batch that is next year?
SudhanshuSinhal: Like I said there is still no clear consensus on the CET being scrapped. But either way, HSC remains the KEY. Sinhal Classes has already announced that if the CET is scrapped, we will adjust our INTEGRATED HSC-CET Course to lay more emphasis on HSC.
Nimisha: Is there any need for CET and HSC coaching classes
SudhanshuSinhal: If a student wants to pursue Engineering/ medicine, there definitely is a need for HSC & CET coaching classes. This is because there are 200 reference books for HSC-CET, and a coaching classes can choose the right material from all these books which is something a student cannot do by him/herself.
