ATMA Syllabus, Pattern, Structure of Question Paper

The Test contains Questions on three abilities or skills.  These are:

  • Analytical Reasoning Skills
  • Quantitative Skills
  • Verbal Skills
Analytical Reasoning Skills

The Questions on Analytical Skills examine the logical thinking abilities of a candidate.  Do remember that a particular Question is less important than the reasoning task you are asked to perform.  No specialized knowledge of any particular field is required for answering the questions, and no knowledge of the terminology and conventions of formal logic is presumed.

In the Questions on Analytical Skills you need to analyse the situations on which each Question is based and then select the answer choice that is most appropriate response to the question.
Each set of Questions or group of Questions is based on a passage or set of conditions.  In answering some of the Questions, it may be useful to draw a rough diagram.  For each Question, select the best answer from the choices given, Darken the corresponding oval in the answer sheet.

Quantitative Skills

The ATMA Quantitative Skills Questions measure your ability to reason Quantitatively, solve Quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data.

Types of multiple – choice Questions include:

  1. Problem-Solving
  2. Data Sufficiency

Problem – Solving and Data Sufficiency Questions require basic knowledge of:

  1. Arithmetic
  2. Elementary algebra
  3. Commonly known concepts of Geometry

For each Question in Quantitative Skills sections, select the correct or the best of the answer choices numbered (1), (2), (3) and (4) and darken the oval corresponding to your choice in the answer sheet.
Number: All numbers are real numbers.
Figures:  Position of points, angles, regions, etc., can be assumed to be positive.
Lines drawn as straight can be assumed to be straight.
Figures that accompany questions are intended to provide information useful in answering the questions.

However, unless it is stated, a specific figure is not drawn to scale; the diagrams and figures are drawn as accurately as possible; you should solve these problems NOT by estimating sizes by sight or by measurement, but using your knowledge of mathematics.

Verbal Skills

The ATMA 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.  Because the Verbal sections include reading sections from different context areas, you may be generally familiar with some of the material, however, neither the written passages nor the questions assume detailed knowledge of the topics discussed.

Types of Multiple Choice questions used in Verbal sections include:

  1. Reading comprehension
  2. Sentence Correction
  3. Word meaning – 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.

In brief, the questions in Verbal Skills sections test your recognition of correct grammatical usage, vocabulary, and familiarities with words, your understanding and comprehension of the language (English) while reading and your ability to write clearly and briefly.

The test Contains 170 Questions spread over Six Sections. Each Section is timed separately. Total time of the Test is 3 hours. The questions cover Analytical Reasoning Skills, Quantitative Skills, and Verbal skills

The following table shows the structure of ATMA

Structure of ATMA

Section Question-Context related to No. Of Questions Allotted Time (Minutes)
I Analytical Reasoning Skills 30 30
II Verbal Skills 25 30
III Quantitative Skills 30 30
IV Verbal Skills 25 30
V Analytical Reasoning Skills 30 30
V I Quantitative Skills 30 30
Total 170 180

(In the Actual Test the Same Sequence as Shown in the Table above may not be followed)

  • Each multiple- choice question is followed by four answers numbered 1,2,3 and 4. You have to choose the correct or best answer from these four choices and then darken the corresponding oval in the answer sheet
  • The questions in this Test are numbered serially starting at 1 and ending at 170. Start answering from the first question of each section and proceed serially.
  • Clear familiarity with the directions and questions is necessary. It is important to read the directions for each set of questions carefully.
  • In case you find a mistake in the framing of the question or the answer-choices given or both, you need not waste your time on them. You will be given credit for any such question. .
  • Time should be allotted wisely within the limits given. On an average, there will be about one minute available for each question in verbal skills, and just one minute in each question in Analytical Reasoning Skills, and Quantitative Skills.
  • ATMA has been designed as a standard, benchmark Test with high quality and academic rigour. ATMA scores are useful in determining a candidate’s relative position in the whole test population. A candidate is not expected to answer all questions, within the specified time frame. You are advised to proceed through the Test at an even pace, skipping the more difficult questions, wherever necessary. You can return to the unanswered questions later, within the time specified for each section. If you wish to review your answers in a section, you can do so only in that section within the time limit. You cannot answer any other section(s) or read any other sections(s), backward or forward, as the case may be. Any violation of this rule will result in disciplinary action and even cancellation of your result.
