Pune: Students preparing for medical, engineering or Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) entrance examinations can now depend on the online preparation portal launched by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.

The portal will have question banks for physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics and will be based on the questions asked in the entrance exams. Subject experts have also been registered on the portal and students can raise their queries, which would be answered by them.

Students and experts will have to visit neetqb.mhhsc.ac.in to access the portal. The bank will mainly consist of questions based of Std XI and XII syllabi of the state board, secretary of the board, Krishnakumar Patil said. “Teachers have been asked to contribute in strengthening the website by uploading questions for preparation and model answers,” Patil added.

They should send their questions to the state board which would be examined by subject experts and uploaded on the website. The board will be accepting questions until December 31.

While the request for submission is open to all, the onus to choose the questions will be on experts in related fields. This is to ensure that the standard and difficulty level usually faced in exams such as Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MH-CET) and National Entrance Cum Eligibility Test (NEET) is maintained.

All questions have to be submitted according to subjects and in multiple choice question (MCQ) format.
