ATMA Exam Pattern
The ATMA Test contains 180 Questions spread over six sections. Each multiple-choice question is followed by four answers numbered 1,2,3 and 4. Total time of the ATMA Test is 3 hours. The questions cover Analytical Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal skills.
For each correct or best answer, you will get a score of one. For any question not answered, a zero score will be given. A negative score will be given for a wrong or incorrect answer. For each incorrect answer, 0.25 point will be deducted.
Thus, for four incorrectly answered questions, one mark will be subtracted from the total score. A question with multiple answers, i.e., more than one answer, will be treated as incorrect and, therefore, a negative score (-0.25) will be given.
The following table shows the structure of ATMA
|Section||Question-Context related to||No. Of Questions||Time allotted|
|I||Analytical Reasoning Skills||30||30 Min|
|II||Verbal Skills||30||30 Min|
|III||Quantitative Skills||30||30 Min|
