- The exam will consist of two objective papers, each with a duration of 90 minutes.
- The first paper consists of Physics and Chemistry. Each part has 50 questions of 1 mark each, making it worth 100 marks.
- The second paper is Mathematics. It has 50 questions of 2 marks each, thus making it worth 100 marks.
- There will be no negative marking in any of the papers.
- An OMR sheet will be provided to the candidate to record their answers.
- Most of the CET paper is based on Maharashtra Board textbooks. Maths and Chemistry are easy targets to score. Physics can be a bit tricky if your fundamentals are not so clear.
- Try to solve questions of different types from reference books. This will help you clear concepts and improve your performance. Toppr offers 1.5 lakh questions for unlimited practice to make your concepts in each chapter strong.
- Practice as much as you can. Most of the questions asked in the exam are of easy to medium level.
- Solve previous year papers and give timed tests in an exam like environment to improve your efficiency of attempting questions. Toppr offers you many test series for this very purpose.
- It is extremely important to take in the right amount and quality of content. Toppr’s Learn solves this problem for you, with our detailed lectures on individual topics having been prepared by India’s top teachers.
Besides, you can also follow us for specific tips and tricks.
Previous years' papers
Previous years’ papers are an essential component in the preparation of any exam. They will help you judge the level of questions generally asked, and also give you a general idea of the paper pattern followed in an exam.
You can find previous year papers here:
Each year, a certain cutoff will be declared by the officials. This cutoff will be based on the difficulty of the paper, the number of candidates who participated and several other factors. Students above the cutoff score are deemed ‘qualified’, and can participate in the counselling procedure.
