ATMA 2022 Preparation Tips

Now let us see how you can prepare for ATMA Exam in each section of the paper.

Quantitative ability and data analysis:

  • Please revisit all that you learned in Mathematics for this section of ATMA. The best way to start would be to solve the questions from your class 10 and class 12 Maths textbooks.
  • All your basic concepts should be clear. You must have no confusion about common formulae. Time is of utmost significance in the case of clearing ATMA. So it is not enough to just know how to solve questions, you also need to know how to solve them fast. Try to learn tricks to solve questions quickly.
  • Get enough practice to increase your speed. Regularly practice solving previous years’ question papers to improve your level of accuracy. Look at solved question papers and try to understand the logic behind the correct answer. Do not get stuck on one difficult question, move on to the next one.

Verbal ability or language comprehension:

  • This section is going to test your ability to comprehend the English language and quiz you on your hold over the language. For this, you need to work on your vocabulary. There is no better way for that than to read more.
  • Regularly practice questions of sentence jumble, paragraph jumble. Practice reading paragraphs and solving questions on them. Regularly read magazines and newspapers to learn word meanings, idioms, and phrases. It will be even better if you can manage to read a few good novels.
  • Refer to the grammar books you read in your middle school to improve your knowledge of basic grammar.

Analytical reasoning:

  • This section of ATMA is considered to be one of the most difficult ones. It is your ability for critical and logical reasoning that will be tested here. To do well in this section, it is recommended that you regularly practice solving puzzles and riddles.
  • Practice questions on coding and decoding to improve your critical thinking. Practice reading statements and try to arrive at logical conclusions and identify fallacious logic.
  • The key to succeeding in this section is to practice as much of previous years’ question papers as you can so that you get a fair idea about the question pattern.
