After the application process of NMAT 2015 ended on Tuesday, October 7, 2014, which was also the day when two-and-a-half month exam window of NMAT 2015 started, officials confirmed that the registration number has dipped marginally. Last year, the total number of registration was 66,407, the officials said.
In NMAT 2013, the number was even higher at 69,000. Thus, the NMAT registration numbers have consistently dropped over the last 2 years from 69,000 in NMAT 2013 to 63,500 in NMAT 2015.
NMAT Registration Trend over Years
In the Infogram below, we bring you the NMAT registration trend of the past 6 years.
With the introduction of computer based mode of test in 2009, the number of registrations was on the lower side, but in 2013, the number shot up considerably from 56,000 to 69,000. However, for the past 2 years, the registration numbers have declined consistently.
NMIMS officials, last year, had maintained that the registration number lowered mainly mainly because “economy was not doing good and there was uncertainty in the job market.”
While, last year, falling NMAT number was in sync with generic trend of major MBA entrance exams witnessing fall in their registration, this year NMAT registration is in contrast to the CAT registrations which has registered a marginal increase in numbers.
CAT 2014 witnessed 1,96,915 candidates registering for the prestigious MBA entrance test for IIMs and other top B-schools in India. An extended date for CAT registrations, had rescued CAT registration numbers this year.
The following table will share the registration trends of the top MBA entrance exams.

Extension in NMAT 2015 Registration Deadline could not increase registrations
Unlike CAT 2014, where re-opening of the registration process for a day resulted in marginal increase in the application number, the application deadline extension for NMAT 2015 did not yield similar result. The total number of registration for CAT 2014 was initially around 1.90 lakh, which increased by around 7,000 on October 10, the 1 day extra window when the process re-opened.
The NMAT 2015 registration process had started from July and ended on October 7. The original registration deadline was September 24, which was extended till October 4, 2014. NMAT also gives the option for late registration which started from October 5 and ended on October 7. Despite the extension in the registration window, NMAT registration numbers have declined this year.
NMAT 2015 Analysis so far
NMAT 2015 is conducted in a window of about two-and-a-half month which will end on December 20, 2014. As per the analysis so far, the difficulty level is moderate to tough. Till last year, the exam’s difficulty level ranged from easy to moderate. Some of the questions from Quantitative Skills and Logical Reasoning were quite tricky. The Language Skills section focused on questions from Vocabulary. However, the exam pattern and the syllabus are on the expected lines. Although NMAT is not among the toughest MBA entrance exams but it surely is not among the easiest ones as well.
NMAT also gives the opportunity of 2 retakes apart from the original attempt. The scores of best of the 3 attempts will be considered. The NMAT 2015 result will be declared on January 22, 2015.

Is ECE ( in IIT Kgp) a good branch, to compete with C.Sc branh of NIT s ? Analyse the job opurtunities and higher studies etc.
Hi, according to your question it seems something similar. If I talk about top NIT's like NIT Trichy, MNNIT Allahabad or VNIT Nagpur then the CSE branch of these institutes gives a tough competition to CSE branch students IIT's also. Now coming on the IIT, Kharagpur's EEE branch so let me tell you EEE highest placement package from EEE branch is approx 1 Croreand the average package is approx 5 Lakhs. So overall you just see IIT Kharagpur is an IIT afterall so it will always be better than any of the NIT's in any branch.
If someone accepts NIT s any branch ,is it possible for him to sit in csab counseling
you can definitely sit for CSAB counselling even after you have accepted a seat in NITs. According to the guidelines for CSAB counselling , if you have seat in any of the NITs , while participating in CSAB counselling the seat which you have been allotted will remain safe and if you do get a seat from this round your previous allotted seat will be forfeited.
