NMAT 2019 analysis is based on the slot 1 exam which took place on 4th October 2019. The exam pattern remained the same and predictable. To score good marks, an attempt of 75-85 questions in two hours needed in NMAT 2019. The questions were moderately difficult, and the questions asked in the examination were predicted. 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. NMAT result date was on 16th January 2020.
The section wise questions pattern and difficulty in ATMA 2020 is as follows:
The section remained moderately difficult and an attempt at 24-26 questions could fetch good marks in NMAT 2019. Vocabulary words were easy. RCs were easy, para-jumbles were moderately easy. The rest of the paper was grammar-based. The fill in the blanks was based on preposition and LOD was moderate in NMAT 2019.
Arithmetic, number system, and modern math dominated the section. P&C and probability questions were moderately difficult. Out of 5 DI sets, 3-4 were easy and less calculative. Overall, the section of NMAT 2019 was easy, and 32-35 attempts could fetch high scores.
There were 25 questions on analytical and logical reasoning and 15 verbal logic questions in NMAT 2019. The questions varied from easy to moderate difficulty level. A good attempt to 23-25 with 90% accuracy was achievable.
This NMAT 2019 paper yet again establishes the fact that the students should never go in with pre-conceived notions. Based on our experience on NMAT paper pattern one should have solved close to 77-83 questions (across the sections) in 120 minutes. The remaining questions should have been calculated attempts (educated guess) because of the marking scheme. Marking all the unanswered questions as B or C would be smart move.
Usually, a scaled score of 230-240 is equivalent to 99 percentiles in the NMAT exam.
