education or studied for similar tests. The preparation for ATMA should not be
similar to that of college and university examinations. However, familiarity
with aptitude tests, diligence and regular preparation can improve the speed.

followed as directed in the EAdmit Card. Familiarity with use of computers and
internet will be required.
