ATMA answer key is not generally released. But, if it does, it will be released by the exam conducting body, AIMS. It can be downloaded from the official website once the exam has been conducted. The ATMA 2024 exam will be conducted on July 21, 2024. The answer key release date is not certain, however, it is likely to be released in the last week of July 2024, after the exam is conducted. The ATMA answer key will mention the correct options for each question asked in the ATMA question paper.

Q:   How can I calculate ATMA scores?

A:
ATMA score is determined on the basis of correct answers marked by aspirants in the ATMA exam. For each correct answer, candidates are awarded one mark. For an incorrect answer, 0.25 marks are deducted from the candidates' total score. This means that for four incorrect answers, one mark is deducted from the total score. The raw score of candidates is scaled with reference to the total number of candidates appearing in the exam. The ATMA percentile is the percentage of candidates among those who have appeared for the exam and scored below the candidate in that category. That is, if a candidate has scored 53 per cent, this means that 53 per cent of candidates who have appeared in ATMA exam scored below him/her. Based on the percentile score of candidates they will be offered admission to the management institutions compared to others who have appeared in the test.
 

Q:   What should I do after the ATMA result?

A:
After the ATMA result declaration, top colleges which accept the ATMA scores start the shortlisting process. The ATMA scores are accepted in over 750 MBA/PGDM and MCA colleges. After the results, the institutes release ATMA cutoffs category-wise and invite applicants to appear for Written Ability Test, Group Discussion GD and Personal Interview rounds for admissions. Candidates can choose up to five institutes while filling ATMA application form where they need to send their ATMA scores and take part in the ATMA counselling process. The ATMA admission process after the result declaration includes: 1. Applications to be sent out to the institutes where you want to take admission. 2. Participating in the counselling process which includes Written Ability Test (What), Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PI). 3. Submitting the required documents to the institutes where you have been shortlisted. 4. Paying the course fee and getting an admission confirmation.

Q:   What is the marking scheme of the ATMA exam?

A:
ATMA has a total of 180 questions. Each section carries 30 marks. For each correct attempt, one mark is awarded and 0.25 marks are deducted for incorrect attempt. There is no deduction of marks for unanswered questions. Therefore, the total marks of ATMA is 180. Each section in the ATMA question paper carries equal number of questions and marks. Sectional marking scheme for ATMA is given below: 1. Verbal Ability: 30 2. Analytical Reasoning: 30 3. Quantitative Ability: 30 Since ATMA has negative marking scheme, candidates must choose the questions to solve very carefully and smartly. If they are not sure of the correct answer, they should leave the question instead of taking a chance.
 

Q:   What are the benefits of the ATMA answer key?

A:
The main benefit of the ATMA answer key is that through the answer key, the candidates can analyse their performance in the ATMA exam. The ATMA answer key contains, candidate's response as well as correct answer to every question. This can help them in calculating how much marks they will score out of the total marks. They can use that information to SEE how much percentile they may score, even before the result has been declared. They can use the estimated ATMA score and percentile to take further decisions regarding postgraduation admission such as which colleges to shortlist or which other entrance exams to appear for. Candidates can calculate their ATMA scores with the help of answer key in the following way: For every correct answer in ATMA one mark is awarded. For each incorrect answer, 0.25 marks are deducted. So, if a candidate has marked 10 questions incorrectly, then -2.5 marks will be awarded.
