NMAT 2022 Analysis

NMAT is now a computer adaptive test. It implies that level of next question will depend on the accuracy of the previous question attempted by the candidate i.e. whether the previous question was attempted correct or incorrect. In this pattern, the difficult questions are given more weightage in terms of marks in comparison to easy questions. Another feature is that the candidate cannot skip the questions while taking the test. Also, it was mentioned that leaving cloze test questions unattempted will invite penalty. In order to increase the score, it is advisable to be extra careful about the accuracy in first 10-12 questions in every section. Also students could select the order of the sections to be attempted in the exam. Overall, this kind of test requires strong fundamentals and enough practice of moderate to difficult questions to score well. However, the distribution of questions can change in different slots on different days.
