NMAT 2021 Exam Structure, Scoring System, & Syllabus
For the NMAT 2021 exam, the number of questions, difficulty levels, and the time limit for each of the sections is predetermined and, under normal administration conditions, are the same regardless of when and where the test is administered. Candidates have a choice of selecting the order of the test sections.
|Section||No. of Questions||Time In Minutes||Score Range|
Since 2020, the NMAT exam has become a computerized adaptive test, which means that the difficulty of the NMAT exam will depend on how you attempt the test. As per GMAC, "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." In other words, if you attempt questions correctly, future questions you will see in the test will progressively increase in difficulty. If you attempt questions incorrectly, you'll start to see easier questions.
- Language Skills: Reading Comprehension, Para Forming, Error Identification Prepositions, Sentence Completion, Analogies.
- Logical Reasoning: Critical Reasoning, Analytical Puzzles, Deductions, Other Reasoning.
- Quantitative Skills: Number Properties, Arithmetic, Algebra and Probability, DI Caselets and Tables, DI Graphs and Charts, Data Sufficiency.
Test takers will receive their score card by e-mail with scaled score for the sections and total for their NMAT 2021 exam within 48 hours of taking the exam.
