  2. NAT-II is further divided in NAT-IIA (Art/Social Sciences Group), NAT-IIB (Biological Group), NAT-IIM (Management Group), NAT-IIO (Oriental and Islamic Studies Group) and NAT-IIP (Physical Science Group).

Each of these tests consists of FOUR parts.

 

  1. Verbal Reasoning (20 MCQs)
  2. Analytical Reasoning (20 MCQs)
  3. Quantitative Reasoning (20 MCQs)
  4. Subject Knowledge (30 MCS in NAT-I and 40 MCQs in NAT-II paper)
