One Sentence Analysis:
“Quant and DI Questions were even more time consuming than what they were expected to be.”
Section-wise detailed Analysis is as follows:
Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation (48 Questions, 60 Minutes):
This section comprised of 20 questions in 5 sets of DI and 28 independent questions of Quant.
A time consuming DI portion is a normal expectation from NMAT. Tests takers, usually, are recommended to attempt any 2 sets if 5 sets are available to attempt. But, DI of this slot was more time consuming than the expectation, largely due to its calculative nature. Out of 5 sets of DI, only one could be termed moderate. Rest of the sets, mostly Tables and Pie Charts only, were acting as speed breakers.
Once again the Quant section was dominated by Number based questions with 5 questions to represent the chapters. Time and Work got an unusual share of 3 questions and Geometry met the expected share of 5 questions among the 28 questions of quant. Linear Equation, Quadratic Equation, Percentage, Time Distance, Averages, Partnership, Ratio, P & C, Probability, Progression – all had a fair share of 1 Question each. Two questions from Clocks and Calendars were also a part of this section.
Out of 28 questions of Quant, 12 to 13 were easy and time saving. 8 to 10 Questions were of moderate difficulty level and up to 7 Qs needed time to solve and hence were difficult in nature.
Overall, the section can be termed as moderate and 30-32 genuine attempts with 90+ % accuracy should lead to a Good Score.
Reasoning (40 Questions, 38 Minutes):
It was nearly a standard NMAT Reasoning section. It had everything we expected it to have: 10 Question of Verbal Reasoning, 1 very difficult set of Input-Output, 1 manageable set of Tabular Arrangements, a couple of questions on Syllogism, 4 questions on Coding-Decoding and 1-2 Questions from each of the standard variety of Reasoning, for example: Direction, Blood Relation, Decision Making, Series etc. One question on visual reasoning, two questions of Set Theory and 3 questions of the type “Find the missing number in table/figure” created remaining portion of the section.
Overall, other than the Input-Output set, nothing was very difficult. Approximately 28-30 genuine attempts with a 90+% accuracy should be sufficient for a Good Score.
Verbal Ability (32 Questions, 22 Minutes):
It was a standard Verbal Ability section. Nearly everything, including the level of difficulty and the question type, was same as our previous attempt of the season.
2 sets of Reading Comprehension having 4-4 Questions each, once again became the least lucrative part of the section. Once again, Vocabulary dominated the section with 6 direct questions of Synonym-Antonym, 2 Analogies based questions and 4 in a format of Fill-in-the-blanks. 4 questions of Parajumbles, 4 questions of Spotting the Error and 4 questions of Fill-in-the-blanks based on preposition contributed in forming rest of the section.
Overall, the section can be termed as easy and around 26-28 attempts with 85+% accuracy should be sufficient to achieve a Good Score.
Overll, NMAT had produced a little heavy Quant+DI section this time. We can hope that the “Scaling Algorithm” would take care of the changed difficulty level and students can still reach the target score with little lesser number of attempts in the affected section.
Best wishes to the NMAT takers of window 4 and 5..!!
Run hard through the test..!!
