    Re: Important questions types/topics for CAT and NMAT?

    Preparation for NMAT is slightly different from that of CAT even though both are computer based exams.NMAT is the entrance test for admission to various MBA programmes at the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) Mumbai. As you would already know, NMAT 2012 is being conducted over a time frame of 3 months that started on 31st October 2011 & will go on till 6th January 2012, allowing you 2 re-takes as well.Before trying to figure out how to crack NMAT, it is crucial to understand the pattern of the exam and know the areas in which your skills will be tested.
    NMAT is a computer-based, 2 hour, objective-type multiple-choice test. (There will be no descriptive type questions).
    It consists of the following sections:
    Sr.No Section No. of Questions Time in Minutes
    1 Language Skills 32 22
    2 Quantitative Skills 48 60
    3 Logical Reasoning 40 38
    Total 120 120

    It is important to perform well as compared to other candidates in each of these 3 sections since the score of each section & the overall score will be used to shortlist you for the next stage of the selection process. There is NO negative marking in NMAT.

    Now comes the important part: How to crack this exam?

    First we’ll tell you the good part: NMAT is an easy exam if you compare it with entrance exams like CAT, XAT etc. But the catch in this exam is your speed coupled with accuracy.
    Some tips for you:
    • It’s all about SPEED!
    • Unlike an upper limit when you’re on the road, there is no limit to your speed here. The faster you can attempt questions, the better. Since there is no negative marking in NMAT 2012, they want you to attempt as many questions as you can, if not all.
    • ACCURACY matters too!
    • What is the point of attempting the maximum number of questions if most of them turn out to be wrong? Try to strike a balance between speed & accuracy. Just because there is no negative marking, don’t go marking random answers!
    • There’s nothing like PRACTICE!
    • “Practice makes a man perfect”, so goes the clichéd saying. But it’s clichéd because it’s true! And nothing can prepare you better for NMAT 2012 than practicing as many sample tests as possible! It would be ideal if you join a test series of renowned coaching centres like IMS, Career Launcher, TIME etc. or practice free online mock tests.
    • Get your BASICS clear!
    • Before you move on to practicing questions from big, fat book, it’s important to get your basics (for quantitative especially) cleared. For this, you have to go back to your humble NCERT textbooks. After you’re through with that, you can graduate to books from Pearson for both Quantitative and Verbal, R.S Aggarwal for Verbal as well as Logical Reasoning, Wren & Martin for your English.
    • Get comfortable with a COMPUTER!
    • NMAT went from paper format to a computer based test from the year 2010. So make sure that your mock tests are always taken on a computer. Students tend to get jittery and nervous in an examination hall and things can get worse if you are not comfortable taking an exam using a computer and a mouse.

    Keep in mind that NMAT is quite different from CAT, XAT or other MBA entrance exams. The main aim should be to clear the cut off in all the 3 sections. The topics to be covered and the sections that are tested in NMAT remain more or less similar to CAT and other management entrance exams. Just make sure that you practice as many sample papers/ mock tests under the simulated conditions as possible.Verification Process: Students appearing for NMAT had been asked to carry the printout of the confirmation mail sent to them and 2 ID cards (in original) for the exam. However, we would recommend that you should carry the photocopies of your ID cards as well. Some students reported that the staff at the test center did not allow them to take the test without collecting the photocopies of the 2 ID cards. Though it was not mentioned anywhere that students need to carry photocopies of their IDs, it may be safer to carry the photocopies with you in order to avoid getting into an argument right before your exam.
    NMAT: The major change in NMAT 2012, as announced, is the introduction of timed sections. The three sections are:
    • QA – 48 questions – 60 minutes
    • VA – 32 questions – 22 minutes
    • LR – 40 questions – 38 minutes
    The good thing is that NMAT 2012 allows the student to decide the order in which they want to attempt the sections. A section-order-screen appears after the tutorial which shows all the six possible permutations: VA-QA-LR, QA-LR-VA, VA-LR-QA etc. A student has to select one of the six and then the sections are displayed as per the selection. Once the selection is made, it cannot be changed at a later stage.
    Since there is no negative marking in NMAT 2012, you should mark all 120 questions. The last 1-2 minutes in each section can be reserved for reviewing the “Incomplete questions” and marking them randomly. If you finish a section earlier than the allotted time, you can move on to the next section. However, since the time saved in one section does not get added to the next section, it is advisable not to submit the section earlier and revise the questions instead.
    There are two major issues in the testing interface of NMAT 2012:
    • The “Review” button, which is provided to check the unattempted and flagged questions, appears only at the end of a section. So, for e.g., if you are attempting the QA section, you cannot use the Review button before clicking the “Next” button at least 48 times. This reduces the utility of the Review button massively. For e.g., if you finish 24-25 questions in QA in around 30 minutes, you will still not know if you are on the right track since there is no way to check what’s in store towards the end of the section. Therefore, it is advisable to keep a buffer and skip any time-consuming questions in the first round and attempt them in the second round if time permits.
    • In a group question, you cannot see the number of questions in that particular set on the first screen. So if you want to see if the set is worth attempting, you will need to click the Next/Previous buttons a few times and then check. This is quite irritating especially in a speed test like NMAT.
