## 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.

### General Aptitude

The main objective of this paper is to assess the general aptitude of the candidate to pursue a

computer applications and software profession.

### Syllabus

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

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.

### Computer Concepts Syllabus

1.0 Computer Basics : Organization of a computer, Central Processing Unit (CPU), Structure of

instructions in CPU, input / output devices, computer memory, memory organization, back-up

devices.
