  MATTest Prep   MAT December 2009 Analysis Overview:   After a long time, MAT was back to the section-wise pattern in Sept 2009 butnow again this time, i.e; December 2009 it was a jumbled-up paper. Other thanthe Logical Reasoning section, which was highly scoring the other sections, were comparatively difficult. This time, Quantitative Ability  was a littledifficult but manageable as most of the questions were from Arithmetic , the   Verbal Ability Section and   DI sets  were difficult . The question paper, on anoverall basis, was a mixed bag of different sections with different level of difficulty. Apart from this as usual it was a lengthy paper with same 200 Qs. Thistime, AIMA was not able to restrict each section to 40 Qs, instead the break-up was DI (44 Qs), Quantitative Ability (42 Qs), Reasoning (30 Qs), Verbal Ability (44Qs) & General Awareness (40 Qs). Executive Summary:  The basic sequence of section with possible attempts was as follows: SectionNo. of QuestionsPossible AttemptsSuggestedTime (Min.)PossibleScoreReasoning 30 20 35 15 + QA  42 20 35 15+ DI and DS 44 17 35 14 + G.A. 40 15 10 9 + EU & RC 44 23 35 19 + Total 200 95+ 15063+(excludingGK) *Note: The number of attempts and the score has been worked out on the basisof the experts’ insight on how the students would have taken the test and whatscore normally has been achieved by the students in past years in this level of paper.    MATTest Prep   SECTION I: REASONING  This has been the scoring area for many students in the recent MAT papers. Thequestions can be broadly classified as: These were mixed bag questions with broad breakup as under:    ANALYTICAL ANALYSISType of questionNo. of Questions Level of Difficulty BloodRelationship 2 Average Series 4 Easy  Coding 4 Average GeometricalFigures 2 Easy  Mathematical 2 Moderate Sitting/positionarrangement 3 Easy  Cube Painted &divided intomore cubes 4 Moderate LOGICAL REASONINGType of questionNo. of Questions Level of Difficulty  AssertionReason 2 Moderate Condition basedDecisionMaking 4 Easy-Average Statement Assumptions 3 Easy  About 20 questions from this section could have been attempted. Assuming 80%+ accuracy, a score of 15+ was easily possible in 35 minutes.  MATTest Prep   SECTION II: QUANTITATIVE ABILITY  In this section students could easily enhance their scores. The all time favoritearithmetic was very prominent. Surprising there was no question on geometry and algebra. Good number of questions is asked from P&C and probability. Thetopic wise break up of the questions was as follows: Type of question No. of Questions Level of Difficulty Percentages, PLD and SICI 4 Average Ratio & ProportionRacesPartnership 124Easy ModerateEasy-Average  Alligation & Mixtures 3 Average Time Speed Distance 10 Average-Difficult Time & Work  5 Easy-Average Boats & Streams 5 Easy  Probability  4 Difficult Permutations 4 Moderate Assuming an accuracy of 80% and attempt of 20 questions, a score of 15+ ispossible with a time spend of about 35 minutes. SECTION III: DATA INTERPRETATION The pure DI sets were either lengthy or difficult to interpret. This time all the 7 DIsets were combination graph types & hence difficult to solve. Another surprise was a caselet, asked for the first time in last 3 years. The easy part was 6 questionDS and 6 question on Quantitative comparison. The summary is as under: Type of question No. of Questions Level of Difficulty Combination of Pie & Bargraph 4 (1 set)Difficult  MATTest Prep   Combination of Line & BarGraph 4 (1 set)Difficult Caselet 4 (1 set) Average-Difficult Table 4 (1 set) Average Combinational of two Piecharts 4 (1 set)Difficult Multiple Line Graph 4 (1 set) Average-Difficult Input to Output Process 4 Average (TimeConsuming) Combination of Pie chart &Table 4 (1 set)Difficult Quantitative Comparison 6 Easy  Data Sufficiency  6 Easy So the total attempt in this section could be about 17 questions and with about 15Qs correct one can score 14+ comfortably in this section. SECTION IV: READING COMPREHENSION AND ENGLISH USAGE This was again a section of moderate difficulty level. Let us take a closer look atthis section!Total no. of Questions: 44No. of RC passages: 5.4 questions per RC passageQuestions from RC passages: 20Questions from EU: 24   Analysis of English Usage and Reading Comprehension:   Type No. of Questions Level of Difficulty Para jumbles 4 Average One word substitution 4 Average Sentence Corrections 4 Difficult Passage based (C.R.) 4 Average
