MAH MCA CET Syllabus
Scheme of CET
The MAH-MCA-CET 2011 examination comprises of two papers (objective type) of one hour duration
viz. General Aptitude (GA) and Computer Concepts (CC). The syllabus & sample question paper
are available on website and also in brochure.
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 straight lines, 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
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.
