 40-Day Preparation Strategy for MHT CET 2024

With only a little time left for the MHT-CET 2024 examination, it’s important that you maintain a proper daily study plan to boost your exam preparedness. With disciplined and dedicated efforts over the next 40 days, preparing for the MHT-CET examination is achievable despite its extensive syllabus. In this article, we’re sharing a free lesson plan we made using our 17 years’ of expertise to help you prepare for the MHT-CET entrance exam.

Planning for the first 30 days:

From days 1 to 6, pay attention to the standard 11 section of the syllabus since it carries 20% of the total weightage. For the next 10 days, focus on the standard 12 chapters that are relatively easy to prepare. In the last days, concentrate on the standard 12 chapters, which are comparatively challenging and carry greater weight according to the analysis of the 2023 question papers.

Day 31–32:  

Revise all the chapters.

Day 33–38:  

Attempt two mock tests every day, evaluate your performance, and focus on the areas you believe need improvement. This will not only help you improve your speed but also your accuracy.

Day 38–40:  

Examine the frequently asked questions in the exam and their subtopics within each chapter. Pay more attention to such topics in the last two days. 

Subject-wise important tips:


  • Always have a list of key formulae on hand so you can quickly review them at the end of the day.
  • It is observed that the chapters on Oscillations, Superposition of Waves, Electromagnetic Induction, Kinetic Theory of Gases and Radiation, and AC Circuits are given more weightage.
  • It is helpful to practice JEE (Main) previous years' questions because the level of difficulty of MHT-CET Physics papers is equal to that of JEE (Main) papers.


  • Around 15 out of 50 questions are numerical type. Therefore, ensure you memorise all the important formulae needed for calculations.
  • Since there are more questions about organic reactions, concentrate on general organic reactions.
  • Be aware of all of the properties and applications of inorganic compounds listed in the Maharashtra State Board textbooks.


  • Maintain a compilation of important formulae for rapid revision before the examination.
  • According to the analysis of the previous year's question papers, a significant proportion of questions have been derived from the topics of Vectors and Trigonometric Functions. Consequently, it is advisable to intensify your practice sessions on these particular chapters in order to enhance your preparation.


  • Usually, more weightage is given to chapters on Control and Coordination and Respiration and Circulation.
  • Calculation-based questions are usually from chapters on Plant–Water Relation, Respiration and Circulation.
  • Diagram or graph-based questions are usually from chapters of Reproduction in Higher and Lower Animals, Excretion and Osmoregulation, Organisms as well as Population.

General Tips:

  • Know the MHT-CET syllabus and examination pattern. Keep yourself informed about any examination-related notifications from the CET cell.
  • Most of the questions are directly asked from the Maharashtra State Board Textbooks. So, make sure to read the textbooks along with other study materials.
  • In addition to studying from day 1 to day 32, go through the past MHT-CET papers to become acquainted with the format of the test and the degree of difficulty of the questions.
  • Make sure you follow the daily study schedule sincerely. Any change in it will affect your preparation for the examination.
  • At the start of the exam, try your hand at the questions you are most comfortable answering. Refrain from devoting too much time to any one question. Make sure to answer every question because there is no penalty for providing an incorrect response.

While these tips will help you crack this exam confidently, it is also important to take proper rest and eat healthy food. It will be easier for you to recall concepts during the exam if you are well-rested and relaxed.

We wish you all the best of luck for the upcoming examination!
