Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019


NMAT by GMAC offers students to self schedule their test interms of place and Date. The registration fee is 2000 plus taxes. If one wants to reschedule their test , he /she has to pay an extra 1100 rupees. And it should be done before 72 hours to the scheduled exam timing. So you cannot reschedule the test before 2 days.

Hey there,

As per the last year cutoff data, I am trying to answer your query:

In NMAT exam , in order to qualify you have to score equally good in all the three sections and have to clear the Cutoffs of all the three sections-

Section      No,of Questions     Total marks         Mumbai         Bangalore/Hyd

Language Skills_____ 32_____________ 96______________ 60______________55

LR_____________________ 40______________120______________60_____________55

Quants_______________ 48_______________144_____________65_____________65

Total__________________ 120______________360_____________185___________175

*NOTE: These above given data are only the minimum score you have to score to clear the sectional cutoffs but the selection depends on how better you have scored compared to other students.

CUTOFF for NMIMS Bangalore Campus: 197+ anything better than this will fetch you to NMIMS Bangalore :)

I hope this will help you!!


hello everyone just have one question that i scored 176 in nmat so what percentile will i get from it.. please help

Rohan Rawat 17th Nov, 2019

Hey there,

The NMAT scores are out and by the time the GMAC which conducted the NMAT will come out with percentiles based on the score you got recently , no one can be 100% sure about the percentile just seeing the score.

But by observing the past pattern of Percentile Vs Score in NMAT exam we can just have an idea of the approximate percentile we can have:

SCORE_____ Vs._______________Percentile

240+____________________________ 99 percentile




and so on,,,

So keep your fingers crossed and just  hope for the best:)

I hope this will help you!!
