NMAT by GMAC 2016 PATTERN
There are generally 3 sections in the test
NMAT 2016 ANALYSIS
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):
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):
CATsule, our revolutionary conceptualized course evidently is the finest course existing to crack the CAT & other exams like XAT, SNAP, NMAT, IIFT entrance, etc. successfully.
