NMAT 2011

The Narsee Monjee Management Admission Test (NMAT)-2011 promises to offer several advantages. Some of the new features include: long test window — NMAT 2011 is being conducted over a three-month window as against the previous 10-day window format. Students may book their seats and dates between  October 1 and 31, 2011. They may choose a date and slot as per their convenience and preparedness. The self-scheduling option enables them to schedule the date and time of test in real-time mode based on seat availability at each centre. Seats however are not guaranteed and will be offered on a ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis.  NMAT 2011 shall offer a maximum of three attempts to each candidate. This option has been developed to assess a candidate’s best performance. The highest aggregate score in all sections for a given attempt shall be used for evaluation purposes. The re-take option will be made available to candidates 15 days after the previous attempt. This means that candidates who appear early in the three-month window will be able to take 3 attempts. There is no negative marking. This encourages candidates to make informed guesses and not drop a question for the fear of deduction in marks. The system of ‘no negative marking’ is as per global practices and psychometric principles. Most CBT interfaces are easy to use and they offer a standard testing environment that can be adapted for candidates with special needs. NMAT 2011 shall make special provisions for differently-abled candidates to provide a conducive test-taking environment. Each candidate taking the NMAT 2011 will receive a unique but equivalent question paper. Test results will be declared within 4-5 weeks from the date of exam delivery.
