Type & Design of Questions:

The General Test is generally divided into three sections, i.e., The Verbal Section, Quantitative Section and the section of Analytical Reasoning. All the questions are based on Multiple-Choice Question format.

Verbal Questions:

The test of Verbal Section is based on completing sentences with the appropriate words, pointing out the errors in the sentences, comprehension exercises to assess the basic knowledge about the vocabulary and grammar of the language. Questions are basically about sentence completion, analogy and critical reading.

Quantitative Questions:

In the Quantitative Section, the NTS tries to measure your basic mathematical skills and check your understanding of the elementary level mathematics. The MCQs in this section are based on three areas, i.e., Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry.

Analytical Questions:

In the Analytical Section, various objective type questions are asked to analyse the capability of every student with regard to their problem solving aptitude in the daily life activities and also the academic interests. Questions asked are basically on the analytical reasoning and logical reasoning.
