What is NMAT?

NMAT (Narsee Monjee Admission Test) is a national level entrance test conducted by GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council) for MBA admissions at NMIMS University (Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies )and other reputed B-Schools in India as well as abroad.

It is a Computer Adaptive Test, i.e., questions are selected from the question pool for each test taker based on his or her performance on the questions previously answered. The questions a candidate receives are targeted at his or her ability level; therefore, a high- scoring candidate generally receives a more difficult sample of questions than a low-scoring candidate. Each section is scored by first obtaining the candidate’s final ability estimate based on the probabilistic model approach of modern exam theory, and then transformed to ascaled score ranging from 12 to 120.
