Why To Practice Adaptive NMAT Mocks Only

The NMAT is a computerized adaptive test (CAT) that gives each candidate a personalized test, one question at a time, based on their responses to previous questions. As the exam is adaptive, candidates will not be able to review or change answers to previous questions.

All these regulations make it really important for candidates to practice Adaptive NMAT Mocks only.

Features of Adaptive NMAT Mocks Test Series

As you start the test, you get to choose the section ordering just like actual NMAT exam. You’ll need more than one mock test to get your perfect section order. So it is recommended to take multiple mock tests.

Adaptive NMAT Mocks

Based on your section order, your paper will be arranged in that order. Since the test is adaptive, candidates are given questions from a question pool randomly selected based on their previous response. Questions are divided on the basis of different difficulty levels. Your next question depends on the last question answered, and the option selected. For instance, you answered two consecutive questions incorrectly, you will receive an easier question. Similarly, you can expect questions of higher difficulty as your accuracy increases.
