TISSNET 2022 did not throw any surprises, as the paper pattern was exactly as advertised on the official website. The questions were from three sections: General Awareness (40 Questions), English Proficiency (30 Questions), and Mathematics & Logical Reasoning (30 Questions). All the questions carried a +1 mark for the correct answers. There was no negative marking.
The GK section of TISSNET 2022 continued to be a slightly tricky section of the paper. However, it maintained a good balance between Static GK and Current Affairs. Questions on current affairs were easy and anybody with a decent knowledge of everyday happenings could guess the answer easily. The English Proficiency section was easy to moderate, with 9 FIB questions (based on preposition & vocabulary). The Mathematics & Logical Reasoning section was extremely easy, and was undoubtedly the most-scoring section of the paper. Barring a few questions from DI, the remaining part of the section was very easy.
Overall, the paper was easy to moderate and was along similar lines as last years' in terms of the level of difficulty. The cut-off for open category students is expected to be about 65 marks.
|Section||No. of Questions||Expected LOD (Level of Difficulty)||Good Score|
|General Awareness||40||Easy to Moderate||20-25|
|English Proficiency||30||Easy to Moderate||20-22|
|Mathematics and Logical Reasoning||30||Easy||25|
|Total||100||Easy to Moderate||65-72|
To attest admission is TISS's MA - HRM, LR and MA ODCL programs in any of the existing TISS campuses, it is mandatory for you to take both TISSNET and TISSMAT. Both the scores will be considered while shortlisting a candidate for these programs. If you only take TISSNET and do not appear for TISSMAT, your TISSNET scores will be considered invalid and your candidature will be cancelled.
TISSMAT (TISS Management Aptitude Test) is a short-spanned assessment test that is conducted after TISSNET. In addition to the TISSNET 2022, candidates looking to get into the MA (HRM & LR) or MA (ODCL) will have to give the TISSMAT 2022 Exam. Only candidates who have cleared the cut off of the TISSNET 2022 Exam will be eligible to write the TISSMAT 2022 Exam. TISSMAT also consists of MCQ based questions which are spread across four sections I.e Comprehension, Management Data Interpretation, Business awareness and Descriptive Writing). TISSMAT will have approximately 40% weightage in shortlisting the candidates for the final round.
Here is a descriptive outline of TISSMAT 2022:
Here are the points you need to remember for all the three examinations I.e TISSNET TISSMAT and their significance in TISS Mumbai's overall admission procedure:
|Shortlisting Components||Total Weightage|
In addition to the TISSNET 2022, candidates looking to get into the MA (HRM & LR) or MA (ODCL) will have to give the TISSMAT 2022 Exam as well. The expected TISSMAT 2022 Pattern is:
|Section||No. of Questions||Marks Awarded/Answer||Sectional Cut off|
|Management Data Interpretation||15||1||Nil|
The TISSMAT Paper pattern will be quite different from the TISSNET 2022 as can be seen from the table given above. One of the most significant differences is the introduction of negative marking in these questions. Every question in the TISSMAT Exam will carry a reward of 1 mark (if attempted correctly) and a penalty of 0.25 marks (if attempted incorrectly).
It is extremely important for the candidates to have an idea about the TISSMAT 2022 Syllabus when they go for the exam. The fact that it is going to be held for the 1st time only makes it more important for candidates to walk into the exam knowing what to expect. The different sections of the TISSMAT 2022 Exam are given below:
In TISSMAT 2022, the Comprehension section tests the candidate on their ability to assess and imbibe management literature. This makes it quite similar to the Reading Comprehension section of other MBA Entrance exams. The only difference is that the genre of the passages is more restricted as they have to be related to Management.
The Management Data Interpretation section is quite similar to Data Interpretation and consists of datasets related to the economy, markets, business and organization. The datasets can be in the form of graphs, charts and data across multiple sources.
This is another type of general awareness section except the candidate has tested only on the business news rather than all contemporary news. According to the TISS Official website, the most important part of the business awareness section includes the economy, human resource management, business news, and labour studies. This is an indicative list given by TISS and should not be taken as an extensive portion.
