Why ATMA ?

ATMA is a high quality test, the scores of which can be used in the admission process, as a reliable predictor of academic performance in post graduate management programmes, including functional, sectoral and computer management programmes offered by various institutes/universities. ATMA's design is similar to that of Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). ATMA seeks to become the benchmark test in the world of management education. It is focussed on the student. ATMA does not require any specific prior knowledge of business or other subject areas nor does it seek to measure achievement in any particular subject area. The test is designed to assess the aptitude of the student for higher management education and primarily consists of sections on verbal skills, quantitative skills and analytical reasoning. Each section will be timed separately and the candidates need to answer questions in each section, within the time stipulated. They should not attempt to answer questions in any other section earlier or later than at the stipulated time. Questions are of the objective type.
