As standardized as it could be!!
Question type and difficulty level both were same as that of last year’s exam.
It was, once again, a speed based test inviting all aspirants to target a typical 208-210 score to earn an NMIMS-Mumbai process call.
Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation (48 Questions, 60 minutes):
The section comprised of 20 questions of Data Interpretation and 28 questions of Quantitative Ability.
DI part of the section was, once again, time-consuming and mostly calculative. Five sets of four questions each were there to test an aspirant’s ability to interpret data. The set with the pie chart was the easiest of all. A good test taker should have given priority to one caselet based set and the set with a bar chart over the other two sets considering the moderate level of difficulty of the former ones.
Remaining 28 questions were from Quant area of aptitude with 22 independent questions and 6 questions of Data Sufficiency. Numbers dominated the section with 6 questions. A good representation of 4 questions was also there from each of Algebra, Percentage Application, Ratio Application, and Geometry. All the 6 questions of Data Sufficiency were the easiest to solve whereas the Ratio based problems (Time Distance, Partnership, Time Work etc) demanded time to get solved.
Overall, the section can be termed as easy to moderate and 36-38 genuine attempts with 90+ % accuracy should lead to a Good Score.
Reasoning (40 Questions, 38 Minutes):
12 Questions from Verbal Reasoning and 28 Questions from Logical Reasoning constituted the reasoning section.
Verbal Reasoning portion had a good variety of questions in form of Syllogism, Course of Action, Sentence Assumption, Strengthen-weaken and inference based question. All of the 12 Questions were easy to moderate. An aspirant with a reasonably good practice of such variety of questions should get 8-9 Questions correct.
Logical and Analytical Reasoning part was dominated by two sets of tabular arrangements based questions. All the 8 questions were easy to moderate. Just one manageable set of Input-output was a small surprise, however, the previous slot of the day tested the takers with a set of good difficulty level. 4-5 questions from Coding, 2 questions of Blood Relations, 3 questions of Series and patterns, 2 questions on set theory formed a major part of the remaining section.
Approximately 28-30 genuine attempts with a 90+% accuracy should be sufficient for a Good Score.
Verbal Ability (32 Questions, 22 minutes):
The section was dominated by Vocabulary based questions. There were 5 Questions of Synonyms/Antonyms, 6 Fill-in-the-blanks and 1 Analogy question, all of which demanded a decent command over vocabulary.
The rest of the section had 4 Questions of Para jumbles, 5 Questions of Spotting the errors, 3 Preposition based Fill-in-the-blanks and 2 Reading Comprehension of 4 Questions each. Both the RCs were of medium size with a possible turn-around time of 6 to 7 minutes and most of these questions were manageable.
As far as the conduction is concerned, Pearson has done a brilliant job. The verification process before the Test is very smooth, provided you carry the right documents. The interface is quite good and responsive, however, one has to take note that there is no question pallet in the test and one has to use “next” and “previous” buttons in order to navigate through a section.
Test takers should reach the test center with all documents asked for.
Test takers should be mentally ready for a Speed Test which has no Negative Marking.
All the Best to the Test Takers..!!
