MAH–MCA-CET is conducted ONLINE at all examination centers which will includes
Multiple choice objective type questions (MCQs). The question paper for the CET will be set in English only. Translations in any other languages will not be available.
The Online CET would be comprised of two online papers of 100 marks each of 45 minutes duration. Each correct answer will carry 4 marks. Each wrong answer will carry 1 negative mark. Unanswered questions will carry zero marks.
Syllabus for MAH-MCA-CET Examination
Scheme of CET
The MAH-MCA-CET is ONLINE examination comprises of two papers (objective type) of 90 minutes duration viz. General Aptitude (GA) and Computer Concepts (CC). The syllabus & sample question paper are available on website (http://www.dtemaharashtra.gov.in/mca2014/StaticPages/HomePage.aspx) and also in online brochure. Each paper has 25 questions and is expected to be completed in 90 minutes.
The main objective of this paper is to assess the general aptitude of the candidate to pursue a computer applications and software profession.
The questions in this paper will cover: logical reasoning, quantitative reasoning, high school mathematics, vocabulary, English comprehension and verbal ability. A good grasp of the following topics of high school mathematics (up to the 12th standard) will be useful:
1.0 Algebra : Fundamental operations in Algebra, Expansion, factorization, Quadratic equations, indices, logarithms, arithmetic, geometric and harmonic progressions, binomial theorem, permutations and combinations.
2.0 Co-ordinate Geometry : Rectangular Cartesian co-ordinates, equations of a line, mid point, intersections etc., equations of a circle, distance formulae, pair of straightlines, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola, simple geometric transformations such as translation, rotation, scaling.
3.0 Differential Equations: Differential equations of first order and their solutions, linear differential equations with constant coefficients, homogenous linear differential equations.
4.0 Trigonometry: Simple identities, trigonometric equations, properties of triangles, solution of triangles, height and distance, inverse function.
5.0 Probability and Statistics : Basic concepts of probability theory, Averages, Dependent and independent events, frequency distributions, and measures of dispersions, skewness and kurtosis, random variable and distribution functions, mathematical expectations, Binomial, Poisson, normal distributions, curve fitting, and principle of least squares, correlation and regression.
6.0 Arithmetic: Ratios and proportions, problems on time-work, distance-speed, percentage, etc.
7.0 Basic Set Theory and Functions: Set, relations and mappings.
8.0 Mensuration: areas, triangles and quadrilaterals, area and circumference of circles, volumes and surface areas of simple solids such as cubes, spheres, cylinders and cones.
