MAT February 2018 Exam Analysis

AIMA conducted the Management Aptitude Test (MAT) in the Paper-Based format on February 4, 2018 as well as in the Computer-Based format on February 17, 2018. The offline exam had no surprise elements although Verbal, Critical Reasoning and Data Analysis & Data Sufficiency sections had some tricky questions, which were time-consuming.

The overall difficulty level of MAT exam conducted on Sunday, Feb 4 was medium. According to students, GK in Indian and Global Environment, Critical Reasoning, and Data Analysis sections had few questions that were tough in terms of difficulty level. These questions turned out to be lengthy and therefore students were found gasping for time. Managing time is an important factor to successfully all the 5 sections of the MAT exam.

In the Management Aptitude Test, there are usually 200 questions which are divided into 5 sections. The exam was taken by students in 51 test cities across the country from 10 AM to 12.30 PM. Students had a time limit of 150 minutes to attempt 200 questions, which means that less than 1 minute was available to attempt each question.

In this paper, students were found struggling to finish the exam as certain questions were really time-consuming. The same pattern was followed in the Computer-Based Test, which took place on February 17, 2018. Both the papers had the same difficult level.

All the questions asked in the test carry equal marks. For every correct answer, 1 mark is awarded. For every wrong answer, there is a negative marking, which means 0.25 mark is deducted. All the questions asked in the examination are in MCQ format. Each question is followed by 4 options of answers.

The following table shows the ideal time limit to tackle each section of MAT and attempts required per section to score well in the exam.
