IGNOU OPENMAT 2019 Exam Pattern

Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) conducts IGNOU OPENMAT for candidates who wish to take admission in the UG and PG diploma courses in management. This test takes place twice a year and it is important for students to have an idea about the IGNOU OPENMAT exam pattern to perform well in the exam.

The exam pattern of IGNOU OPENMAT remains usually the same every year. The paper will have 200 questions in total and the duration of the exam is 3 hours. The questions will be divided into four sections:

  • General Awareness-This section will have 30 questions

  • Quantitative Attitude-This will have 50 questions

  • Reasoning-This section will have 70 questions

  • English Language-This will have 50 questions

Since the candidates will have to solve 200 questions in 3 hours, it is advisable to not waste a lot of time thinking. For instance, in the general awareness section, if a candidate is unable to answer a question initially, it is better to move on to the next question than waste time getting stuck over one question.

It is important for the candidate to attempt all the questions he/she knows and then go for the questions he is not sure about, this will help save time. Candidates also need to prepare while keeping the exam pattern in mind as that will help them in thorough preparation and will also keep them focused.
