Revision is the most important part of preparation but to revise, students need data. Hence, students who are planning to appear for the exam must start making MHT CET 2021 notes from the beginning. Since there are 4 subjects under MHT CET – physics, chemistry, maths, and biology – notes should be prepared separately.

Under MHT CET, students get an option to either appear for the math paper or biology paper, as per the group applied for. The choice to appear in both is also available. The questions under the PCM group shall be of JEE Main 2021 level and the questions in PMB group will be NEET 2021 level.
