Bird’s Eye View 
We are please to present you the detailed analysis of Narsee Monjee Management Aptitude Test (NMAT) held on10
December 2006. 10th December is celebrated as
Human Rights Day
all over the world. It was really inhumaneto students who wrote two consecutive tests that Sunday. When students arrived for the NMAT paper in theafternoon, some of them feeling tired and some having lost the zeal to even attempt the second entrance exam of NMAT. But within a few minutes of receiving the booklets, every student tried to pull their energies and set theirmood right to attempt the best of their abilities.This year AIMA conducted a slightly tougher paper as compared to last year’s paper. Total number of questions,total time allotted, number of options, marking pattern were the same as last year’s NMAT. There were total 200questions to be solved within the time span of 150 minutes. Four answer choices were given for each question. It wasdeclared that one mark will be provided for each correct answer marked and a negative marking of –0.25 for eachincorrect answer. The only change that AIMA made in this year’s paper was that the paper didn’t have any sections. Although the questions from different areas were segregated. No sections, means there will be no sectional cut-offs. As per AIMA’s tradition, there were 40 questions each on the topics like RC (Reading Comprehension) & EU (EnglishUsage), Quantitative Aptitude (QA), DI (Data Interpretation) and DS (Data Sufficiency), LR (Logical Reasoning) andGK (General Knowledge). AIMA provided total thirteen sets (A-M) of the paper to made selections fair. A bird’s eyeview of the test is as follows.Total Number of Questions
