4. NMAT 2020 Exam Pattern – New Pattern Introduced

The biggest change in this year’s NMAT exam notification was the induction of a new adapted pattern of the test to be conducted. The overall form of the exam has also been updated which was being stagnant from the last few years.

Let’s have a look at the new pattern

Name of the Section No. of Questions Time Allotted (Mins)
Language Skills 36 28
Quantitative Skills 36 52
Logical Reasoning 36 40
Total 108 120

The 2-hour long NMAT by GMAC test contains multiple-choice questions. Prior to the start of the test, there will be a 2-minute period for the test taker to agree to the Non-Disclosure Agreementa 10-minute tutorial, and a 3-minute period for section selection and sequencing.

4.1 NMAT Exam Pattern – Things to Keep in Mind

No Ability To Return Ta a Section After Leaving It: Test takers need to answer the questions of each section within the allotted section time. Once the test taker completes a section, whether the test taker selects to move to the next section or if time runs out, the test taker will not be able to return to that section.

No Carryover Of Time: Test takers cannot add the remaining time of one section to other sections. If a test taker completes answering and reviewing a section before the allotted section time expires, the test taker may either choose to revise their answers in the section or move to the next section, but the balance time cannot be added on to the next section’s allotted time.

5. NMAT Rescheduling 2020

The NMAT also provides the option of rescheduling the exam but within certain limits. Here’s what you have to keep in mind.

  • Candidates can reschedule their exam 72-hour prior to the test in a given exam slot.
  • Rescheduling will be subject to the availability of a time slot on a different date.
  • Candidates opting for rescheduling will have to pay an additional amount of 1100/- INR + Taxes for the rescheduling.
  • Once past the 72-hour mark, no rescheduling will be possible.
