NMAT 22 analysis

NMAT - 2022

NMAT 2022, has been scheduled from 10 Oct 2022 till 19 Dec 2022.

NMAT 2022 is being conducted as CAT (computer adaptive test) unlike other management entrance exams in India, which are linear in nature. That would mean that students attempting the questions need to focus on accuracy a lot to ensure that their scores stay high. This is to be done all the while, balancing the speed to ensure that as many questions as possible can be answered in the given time.

There were three sections in the question paper. The students were free to decide the sequence of sections as well. All the three sections had equal number of questions viz., 36. The three sections were timed viz., 52 mins for Quantitative skills, 40 mins for Logical Reasoning and 28 mins for Language skills. Those who have solved T.I.M.E.’s NMAT mocks would stand to benefit in the actual exam.

Quantitative Skills

Out of 36 questions in the Quantitative Skills section, a majority of the questions were be based on problem solving. A few questions were on data sufficiency as well. The questions were from diverse areas like Arithmetic, Numbers, P & C, Probability, Logarithms, Quadratic Equations, etc. Though a few questions were simple, most of them involved lengthy calculations. There were two sets on Data Interpretation which would consume time due to lengthy calculations. Questions on Geometry and Mensuration were surprisingly not present in some slots.

Logical Reasoning
