About NMAT exam
Let’s first have an overview of NMAT :
- The examination mode is online.
- There are a total of three sections, with no negative marking for wrong answers
- There is a total of 108 questions, that need to be attempted in 120 minutes.
- You need to clear the sectional cut-offs and the overall cut-off to qualify for the CDPI round.
Some other important aspects of NMAT:
- You can give a total of 3 attempts, with a 75-day window in between any two exams ( take note that for every attempt you will have to pay the exam fees again, but not the college fees).
- The best marks out of the three would be considered.
- You are free to choose the order of the sections before the start of the exam.
- You can also schedule your own time and place for taking the examination (subject to availability).
The three main sections in NMAT are:
|S no-||Section||Questions||Time (minutes)|
You can read our article on the ‘NMAT 2020 preparation strategy’ for comprehensive detail on each section and the strategy to ace them.
The NMAT Exam Pattern has the following features:
-There is no negative marking
-One mark is awarded for each correct answer
-Zero marks are awarded for each unanswered question
The candidate can answer questions freely without the fear of penalty. The candidates have a 75-day window to appear for the test thrice, including ‘no-shows’. Each attempt has to be at least 15 days apart. The test window for the session 2018-2020 was from Oct 5’ 2017 to Dec 18’ 2017. This gives them an opportunity to improve their scores. Each candidate gets a unique but equivalent exam. The order of the questions is not fixed. There is a review screen at the end of each section where the candidates can check the status of all the questions in that particular section – the number of questions answered, flagged, and left unanswered and move directly to any of these to alter the marked option before submitting the answers.
The final scores are all scaled scores to account for the difference in the overall difficulty level of the exam. The NMAT exam is comparative and not to measure self-performance. The percentile rank is provided only after all the students have attempted the exam. It shows the overall position of the participant in comparison to the others. Also, one candidate can register only once. No multiple registrations are allowed for NMAT by GMAC.
