ATMA Exam pattern, Sample Papers & Books

January 09, 2011

ATMA Exam Pattern Sample Papers Books
This blog post follows my earlier blog post titled: ATMA 2011 Exam Notification, Eligibility & Forms, which introduces you to this management entrance exam and tells you when to expect exam notification, the ATMA eligibilities and how to apply for the same.

The focus of this blog post is on how to prepare for ATMA: It would give you the exam pattern and also sources of online sample papers and books.

ATMA Exam pattern:
The exam contains 170 Objective type questions to be answered in 180 minutes (3 hours). There are 6 sections from three test areas (two sections per test area): Analytical Reasoning Skills, Quantitative Skills, and Verbal skills.

Number of questions per section along with time allotted can be found from following ATMA exam structure:
As you can find from above ATMA Exam pattern, number of questions is less in Verbal skills test area (50 questions to be answered in 60 minutes), compared to Analytical Reasoning Skills (60), Quantitative Skills (60). Therefore, you have roughly 1 minute approximately to answer each question.

Also, you are not allowed to go back/forward to any other section, other than the section for which time has been set. That is, for instance, after expiry of first 30 minutes till next 30 minutes, you have to answer Section-II (Verbal skills) only. You can not go back to Analytical Reasoning section or forward to Quantitative section.

However within a given section, you can answer the questions randomly and can come back to any previously un-answered question. Out of four answer choices, you have to darken the corresponding oval of the best answer with an HB pencil (and not pen) in the OMR answer sheet.

There is negative marking in ATMA exam: 1/3rd (i.e. 0.33) mark would be deducted for each wrong answer, including if you choose multiple answers for a particular question.

Question types:
ATMA tests three of your skills: Analytical Reasoning Skills, Quantitative Skills, Verbal Skills. What skills are looked at in these tests?

Questions on Analytical Reasoning Skills tests your logical thinking ability. You need to analyse the situations on which each question is based and then select the most appropriate answer.

Quantitative Skills Questions measure your ability to reason Quantitatively, solve Quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data. Type of questions in Quantitative section includes Problem-Solving & Data Sufficiency questions, for which you need to have basic knowledge of Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry.

Verbal Skills sections measure your ability to read and comprehend written material in English language, to reason and evaluate arguments, and to correct written material to conform standard written English. Type of question in ATMA Verbal section includes:
1. Reading comprehension
2. Sentence Correction
3. Vocabulary – antonyms, synonyms, analogies - your ability to recognize relationships among words and concepts, parallel relationships, etc.
4. Sentence completions – your ability to recognize words or phrases that both logically and stylistically complete the meaning of a sentence.

ATMA Exam Sample Papers:
I could not find any good quality online sample paper for ATMA, excepting this paper on ATMA Verbal section of TCYOnline. However, the same needs free user registration. You can also check the other MBA papers from TCYOnline through this link.

ATMA Exam Books:
I could not find any books specifically published for ATMA test. However, since the sections of ATMA & MAT are similar (with both having the three test sections: Analytical Reasoning, Quantitative & Verbal), I am sure these books on MAT is going to be of help.
