Hindustan Times’ workshop on CET a hit among students
Hindustan Times’ first free workshop to help students crack the Common Entrance Test (CET) saw 1,200 eager aspirants turn up at Bhaidas Hall in Vile Parle on Friday.
Students were taken through sections on visual reasoning, verbal reasoning, advanced logic based puzzles and a live simulation CET, the entry test for management institutes in the state.
The workshops are being conducted in partnership with a coaching institute, Chitale's Personalised Learning (CPL).
Tips on maximising the scores and some shortcuts were provided at the session,” said Rohit Ahuja, 23, one of the participants. “Since the CET is a speed-based test, it was useful in understanding how we can make the most of our time.”
The next session will be held on January 28 at Kalidas Natya Sabhagriha in Mulund at 10.30am. A total of 2,800 participants have registered via SMS for both sessions. Professors of CPL will address the students on how to crack tough questions quickly, how to improve accuracy in verbal reasoning and other tips.
“I missed the previous session and was only able to collect the material. I hope to make it to the next session next week,” said Astha Kala, 20, an NM College student. “I hope to learn some strategies on how to crack an exam under pressure.”
