NMAT 2019 Exam Analysis – (Window 1, Day 1)
NMAT, certainly, is one of the most standardized examinations in the country. There was no major change in NMAT 2019 with respect to last year. Most of the expectations related to section formats were met. The difficulty level was just perfect for a cut off of 208-210 for NMIMS Mumbai campus.
Here is the section-wise exam analysis of NMAT 2019:
Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation (48 Questions, 60 minutes):
The section comprised of 20 questions of Data Interpretation and 28 questions of Quantitative Ability. Some students may find 16 questions of Data Interpretation too.
All the sets of Data Interpretation used traditional tools of representing data. Example: Bar, Table, Pie, etc. All the sets demanded hold over basic calculation, ratio and % change. Two out of these 5 sets were really time-saving and a test taker should have experienced a pleasant change of mood while solving them. A test taker with good hold over calculation would attempt one more set. However, the remaining two sets should have been left because they were very calculative.
Quant section was primarily dominated by Number based applications. Almost all Qs of Data Sufficiency (Count: 6) tested the concept of Number systems only. 3-4 more independent Qs of Numbers gave a treat to test takers having a good hold over concepts of Numbers. Permutation and Combination, Probability – both had a share of two Qs each. Ratio applications – Time-work, Partnership etc saw a total share of six Qs. Chapters based on percentage had a share of three Qs. A couple of Qs of Geometry was also there.
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):
Just like last year, we received 16 Qs of Verbal Reasoning. The variety varied from Strengthen-Weaken argument to Course of Action, Assumptions to Syllogism. There is no doubt that these were the most productive Qs of the section. Getting at least 11-12 of them correct should not be very difficult for a prepared test taker.
The highlight of the remaining portion, once again, were two sets of Input-Output type. The logic behind each of the sets was very difficult to crack and would act as a speed breaker if not left aside quickly. One set of tabular data arrangement was also there. Apart from these, there were 12 independent Qs from varieties like Blood Relations, Series, Number based puzzles, Venn Diagram, BODMAS, coding-decoding, etc.
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 2 Questions of Synonyms/Antonyms, 3 Fill-in-the-Blanks, 4 cloze tests based Qs and 6 Analogies, all of which demanded a decent command over vocabulary.
The rest of the section had 4 Questions of Para jumbles, 3 Questions of Spotting the errors, 2 Preposition based Fill-in-the-blanks and 2 Reading Comprehension of 4 Questions each. Both the RCs were 350 to 400 words each with a possible turn-around time of 8 to 10 minutes. A smart student should keep RC solving for the end as it was time-consuming.
Approximately 25-27 genuine attempts with 85+% accuracy should be sufficient for a Good Score.
As far as the conduction is concerned, Pearson has been doing a brilliant job since the last few years. 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. Also avoid clicking on the “Close Review” tab, which will end your ongoing section, although after a couple of warnings.
Test takers should reach the test center at least 30 minutes before the allocated time with all documents asked for and should be mentally ready for a Speed Test which has no Negative Marking.
All the Best to the Test Takers..!!
