NMAT getting over today

By: R Chandrakala on December 15, 2017

NMAT Examination began on 5th October 2017 and would be ending on 18th December 2017. 

NMAT by GMAC is a computer adaptive national aptitude test conducted by GMGC on behalf of GMAC in India. The test validity would be one year and is conducted to determine admission of prospective candidates into MBA/PGDM Programs offered by NMIMS and other B-schools that accept NMAT scores.

The NMAT by GMAC Test structure is as follows:

This is a Computer Based Test comprising of the sections: Language Skills, Quantitative Skills and Logical Reasoning. NMAT examination as such is unique for all test takers as candidates would be getting computer delivered questions from a pool source of questions, one followed by one.


The factors such as number of questions, difficulty levels and time limit would be pre-determined for every section in the NMAT Examination. Between the three sections the candidate would be given a choice regarding the section that they would be wanting to attempt on an initial basis. 

If a candidate completes a section before time, he may use the rest of the time to evaluate or revise the answers given or also spend time on questions that were tricky or time-consuming.

The time saved cannot be added to the next section. The NMAT Result would be declared within 4-5 weeks of the examination and a normalization procedure would further be followed to provide a fair score for the candidates. GMAC has not proposed any major changes in terms of the test pattern for this year. 

The NMAT Exam pattern is consisted of follows:

Section Question Count Allotted Time
Language Skills 32 22 mins
Quantitative 48 60 mins
Logical Reasoning 40 38 mins
Total 120 120 mins

NMAT by GMAC is considered one of the most student-friendly examination as it does not have a system of negative marking in place. It provides an opportunity to students to retake the examination if they do not get satisfied with their performance in the NMAT by GMAC Examination.
