MHT CET Application Form 2018 Released!

The MHT-CET or Common Entrance Test is an annual entrance exam conducted by the Government of Maharashtra.  The entrance exam is mainly held for admissions to engineering and pharmacy courses in the various colleges in the state.  It is conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education. Let us discuss MHT-CET Application Form 2018 that is  released on 18th January 2018.

The Common Entrance test is scheduled to be held in 10th May 2018. The syllabus will be based on the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) course. The major focus, approximately 80 percent, will be given to the syllabus of class 12 and the remaining will be given to the class 11 syllabus. Students are recommended to study accordingly and fill CET Online Application form in time.

Directorate of Technical Education has also notified that there will be no negative marking. But the difficulty level in maths, physics, and chemistry will be at par with Joint Entrance Examination, Main. Also, Biology will be equal to that of NEET. The mode of examination will be pen and paper. The questions will be of Multiple choice type. For Paper I, each question will carry two marks and in the rest, two papers – Paper I and Paper II, one mark will be given for each right answer.

MHT CET 2018 Exam Pattern and Syllabus

MHT CET, being a common entrance test, the examination has been divided into three papers. Candidates applying for a particular course are required to appear for a specified set of papers. Provided below is the distribution of subjects and their marks in various papers:

Paper Subject MCQ Mark per question Total Marks
Paper I Physics 50 1 50
Chemistry 50 1 50
Paper II Biology (Botany) 50 1 50
Biology (Zoology) 50 1 50
Paper III Mathematics 50 2 100

Here is the syllabus and some important points from each topic.

Chemistry

  1. Some Basic Concepts of Chemistry
  2. States of matter : Gases and liquids
  3. Structure of atom
  4. Periodic table
  5. Redox reactions
  6. Chemical equilibrium
  7. Surface chemistry
  8. Nature of chemical bond: Ions are atoms or molecules which have either gained or lost one or more electrons thereby lending the ion a net positive or a net negative charge. There are two types of ions; Cations and Anions. Cations are ions carrying a net positive charge and anions are ions carrying a net negative charge.  Hence, the basic difference between a cation and an anion is the ion’s net electrical charge. Covalent bonds are formed when atoms share electrons (instead of gaining or losing them) to become more steady. When atoms share one, two or three pairs of electrons between themselves, it results in single, double or triple bonds respectively. The strength of the bond depends on the number of electrons that are shared between two atoms. More the number of electrons shared between two atoms, the stronger the bond between them. Covalent bonds are more commonly found in the molecules of all living organisms and also in smaller inorganic molecules like H2O, CO2, and O2.
  9. Hydrogen: Hydrogen and its isotopes: Hydrogen, while a non- metal, is very stable in its +1 oxidation state. Like Halogens, it exists as a diatomic molecule (H2), it gains one electron to attain inert gas configuration and forms H. Hydrogen has two other isotopes Deuterium (having 1 neutron) and Tritium (having 2 neutrons) composing 0.02% and 10-15% of all hydrogen. Protium (1H1) has lower Boiling point, Melting point, Latent heat of fusion and Latent heat of vaporization than Deuterium. Tritium is radioactive but harmless, as it emits only low energetic β radiation. Hydrogen is produced industrially through steam decomposition of hydrocarbons and coal. This hydrogen is used to make industrially important chemicals like ammonia, hydrochloric acid, methanol and hydrocarbons. Liquid hydrogen was used as fuel in rockets. Oxy-hydrogen torch is used for welding purpose. Vanaspati ghee is prepared by catalytic hydrogenation of oils over nickel catalysts.
  10. s-Block elements (Alkali and alkaline earth metals):The elements in which the last electron enters the outermost s-orbital are called s-block elements. The s-block elements have two groups (1 and 2).
    • The Group 1 elements are called alkali metals. These elements are called alkali metals as they form hydroxides by reacting with water that is strongly alkaline in nature.
    • The Group 2 elements are called alkaline earth metals as their oxides and hydroxides are alkaline in nature and exist in the earth’s crust.
  11. Basic principles and techniques in organic chemistry:  The most fundamental in Reaction Chemistry are the following
    1. Intramolecular Reactions are faster than Intermolecular Reactions
    2. Reactions happen to form the stabler of all the possible products.
    3. Strong Acids react with the stronger base, of the available.
  12. Alkanes
  13. Alkenes
  14. Alkynes: Darzen Condensation, Hydrolysis of Ketal to give Ketones, Micheal Addition, Ozonolysis of Alkynes, Nucleophilic Addition reactions
  15. Aromatic compounds
  16. Environmental chemistry
  17. Biomolecules: There exists life on earth. Life is a complex phenomenon, which is based on non living molecules interacting with each other, which we call biomolecules ! Now how come these entities spring up life out of no where ? No one has been still able to answer it. However, following have been listed as some types of biomolecules.
  18. Polymers
  19. Organic compounds containing nitrogen
  20. Aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids
  21. Alcohols, phenols and ethers
  22. Halogen derivatives of alkanes
  23. Coordination compounds
  24. D block elements:D-block elements occupy the space between the s-block and p-block in the periodic table. Since they bridge the two blocks and show a transition in the properties from the metals to the non-metals, they are also called Transition elements.The valence electrons fills up the penultimate d-orbital energy level – according to the Aufbau principle, giving rise to four series of d-block elements – 3d, 4d, 5d and the 6d series. However 6d series is considered incomplete. In addition, as the criteria goes, the d-block elements Zinc, Cadmium and Mercury are not considered transition elements as they have completely filled d-orbitals in their ground and excited states.
  25. F Block Elements: The f-block elements are so called because they have unfilled f orbitals. They are also referred to as the ‘inner transition’ elements as they are sandwiched between the s-block and the d-block elements. They are also sometimes referred to as the rare earth elements. All the f-block elements belong to Group 3. The f-block elements in the first row are called lanthanoids. The f-block elements of the following row are called actinoids. They are named after each of the corresponding d-block elements at the beginning, namely, Lanthanum (La) and Actinium (Ac), due to their similarity in properties.
  26. p-Block elements: Elements in Groups 13-18 of the Periodic Table are called P-block elements.  These include metals, metalloids, noble gases and halogens. Some of the commonly known elements in the P-block are:
    1. Metals: Aluminium (Al), Boron (B), Tin (Sn).
    2. Metalloids: Silicon (Si), Germanium (Ge)
    3. Noble Gases: Helium (He), Neon (Ne), Argon (Ar).
    4. Halogens: Fluorine (F), Chlorine (Cl), Bromine (Br).
  27. Chemical kinetics
  28. Electrochemistry
  29. Chemical thermodynamics and energetic
  30. Solid State: Solid state chemistry, also sometimes referred to as materials chemistry, is the study of the synthesis, structure, and properties of solid phase materials, particularly, but not necessarily exclusively of, non-molecular solids. It, therefore, has a strong overlap with solid state physics, mineralogy, crystallography, ceramics, metallurgy, thermodynamics, materials science and electronics with a focus on the synthesis of novel materials and their characterization.Solids are the chemical substances which are characterised by define shape and volume, rigidity, high density, low compressibility. The constituent particles (atoms, molecules or ions) are closely packed and held together by strong inter-particle forces

Mathematically,1 Where g(x) is the function obtained after estimation. This is basically assuming the value of function f(x) at x=a, but in most cases, the function does not exist at x=a (like the log(x) function which does not exist at x=0) and hence an estimation is required.
