Q. Is there a difference in JEE Main & MU OET Preparation?

MU OET 2018 will have objective (MCQs) questions from four subjects - Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and General English. Among the subjects, Mathematics carry the maximum weightage. JEE Main 2018, though, will not have any questions from General English. That is not all, as all the three subjects carry equal weightage. The candidate, therefore, would have to take these aspects into consideration when preparing for the respective exams.

Also, while solving sample papers and taking mock tests are recommended for MU OET, they are absolutely necessary for JEE Main.


Q. I am unable to prepare for MU OET separately? Should I prepare for only JEE Main & Class 12?

Even if the candidate is not able to prepare for MU OET 2018 separately, it shouldn’t be a concern. It is because questions asked in the exam are at par with most Class 12 syllabi. Also, JEE Main is a much more advanced exam, and preparing for it will automatically take care of most topics asked in MU OET.


Q. What are the best books to prepare for MU OET?

To prepare for MU OET, the candidate can rely on NCERT books, which are very good for building concepts. Also, at the end of each chapter of these books, there are problem sets that can be used for testing one’s learning.

how is the level of mu oet ? is it possible for a average student can get 300+ i want to know abt that marks is for 800 what do u think is it easy or tough ?

Arya 8th Nov, 2019

Hi Irshad,

The level of MU OET is definitely lower than JEE but that doesn't mean you should take it lightly. Anyone can clear any examination, provided they have enough concentration and dedication towards it. You should make a study timetable and strictly adhere to it. Do not waste any time and start preparing at once. 550-600 out of 800 is usually considered a "good" score so keep that in mind during your preparation.

I got 6794 in manipal entrance any hope to get CSE OR ECE

ritik ayalwar 26th Jun, 2019

With 6794, CSE is near to impossible. Yes, there is a chance for ECE if you go till the final round. According to 2018 and 2017 data, for ECE, the cut offs were between 5000 and 60000. And, there is no big difference between that and your rank, so you can give it a try.

Sabi Ul Haque Naimi 28th May, 2019

Dear Abhay

Taking into consideration trends in past year regarding the cut off , I am sorry to say this but you have very low chances of getting cse in Manipal Jaipur as the seats are filled by ranks upto 10000.

Last year cut off was 8588.

Good luck.
