NMAT 2016 ANALYSIS

No surprizes…!!
GMAC managed to produce a near-copy of last year’s NMAT.
Be it the sectional pattern or level of difficulty or variety of questions.... almost everything was nearly same as the last year’s NMAT. This was a typical NMAT test made for an aspirant who is ready for a speed test and won’t hesitate in leaving 10-15 speed-breakers lying randomly.

 

The detailed section wise analysis is as follows:

Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation (48 Questions, 60 minutes):

This section can be broadly classified into two parts: Quant, which had a share of 28 questions and Data Interpretation, which had 5 sets of 4 questions each. Apart from half a dozen speed-breakers, all the questions of Quant were appropriate for this type of speed test as most of them were simple application based questions. With 6 questions of Numbers and 6 of Geometry, the paper had a good mixture of ratio based questions (Time-Speed-Distance, Time & Work, Alligation Mixture, Averages) and higher arithmetic questions (P & C, Progression, Logarithm).

Data Interpretation part of the section was calculative. There were 2 sets Tables and one set of Pie Charts, Bar Charts and Mixed Charts each, primarily testing aspirants’ approximation and calculation skills.

Overall, the section can be termed as easy to moderate and attempting 34-36 questions with 90+ % accuracy can be termed a good score.

 

Analytical Reasoning (40 Questions, 38 Minutes):
This section was a mixture of 30 Logical Reasoning questions and 10 verbal reasoning questions. There were questions of blood relationship, arrangements, table based arrangements, data structure, series and coding-decoding in the section. Approximately 10 random but logic based questions improved variety in the test paper. 6 questions of strengthen-weaken arguments and 4 questions of statement-conclusion questions formed the part of verbal reasoning. Except 5 speed breakers, section was easy and manageable.

The section was easy but the sheer variety of the questions makes me rate it as Moderate and reaching around 28-30 attempts with 90%+ accuracy can be considered a good score.

 

Verbal Ability (32 Questions, 22 minutes):
This is a section in which students have to attempt questions at a rate of 40 seconds per question. A good count of grammar based Fill-in-the-blanks (precisely 10) and 5 synonyms/antonyms made the task possible for test takers. This was further supported by 4 questions of para-jumbles and 4 questions of spotting the errors. Only “time-consuming” part of the paper was 2 Reading Comprehensions with 4 questions each. Most of the questions of RCs were direct and easy.
The section can be termed as easy and around 24-28 attempts with 90+% accuracy can be termed as a good score.
