MAH MCA CET 2017 Exam Pattern
The MHT MCA CET 2017 is scheduled on the March 27, 2017. It is a Computer Based Examination which provides admissions in the post graduate degree programme in Master of Computer Applications in the state of Maharashtra. The competent authority appointed by the Government of Maharashtra to conduct the examination is the Directorate of Technical Education, Maharashtra. The candidates who fulfill the MAH MCA CET Eligibility Criteria can appear for the examination. The MAH MCA CET 2017 is a multiple choice objective type examination i.e. questions with four options with one correct choice. The examination is conducted in multiple sections in the MAH MCA CET Exam Centers. The number of sections in the examination has been updated to two since 2014. The two sections in the MAH MCA CET are as follows:
General Aptitude (GA)
Computer Concepts (CC)
General Aptitude- This section comprises of the questions to test the general aptitude of the candidate required to pursue a computer application and software based profession.
Computer Concepts- This section tests the computer based basic knowledge and basics of operating systems.
MAH MCA CET 2017 General Pattern
The basic examination pattern followed for the MAH MCA CET 2017 is mentioned below:
The examination has two sections with 50 questions in each section i.e. 25 questions of General Aptitude and 25 questions of Computer Concepts.
The MAH MCA CET 2017 is conducted online with a set time duration of 90 minutes.
English is the mandatory language of the questions. The translation of any question to any other language shall not be permitted.
MAH MCA CET 2017 Marking Scheme
The MAH MCA CET 2017 is an online format type exam which enables the candidates to get shortlisted for admissions in various colleges of Maharashtra offering admissions in MCA course.
