Up to five programmes/ schools under the “School Preference” section can be opted during the time of NMAT registration. In case applicants want to select more than five programmes/schools, they will have to pay Rs 200 + applicable tax for each school/ programme. Before selecting the five institutes, candidates must extensively explore the terms and conditions as well as prerequisites of each management institution in the list of participating colleges of NMAT 2020.
Candidates who will be shortlisted on the basis of their performance in NMAT 2020, will be called for the selection rounds in accordance with the cutoffs of each participating NMAT college. The selection rounds are a set of procedures which candidates will be evaluated upon in order to finally seek admission in the desired programme.
Typically, the selection of all NMAT participating colleges involves a similar pattern, comprising of all or any of the following stages:
Group Discussion (GD)
Written Ability Test (WAT)
Personal Interview (PI)
In some institutes such as SDA Bocconi, there is some weightage given to the following parameters besides the ones listed above:
Academic Abilities - Candidates with a consistent academic background and a demonstrated ability to work under pressure have an advantage in the selection process.
Extra-Curricular & Soft skills - Extra-curricular activities such as management experience, leadership potential, entrepreneurial experience, communication skills, creativity, and involvement in community/social clubs are additional considerations.
The selection process of NMIMS Mumbai has a slightly different approach. Instead of GD, NMIMS conducts a Case Discussion(CD) round which is not very different from Group Discussion. Candidates will be given a case brief of around one page to analyze. They will be given five minutes for the same. Once the time is up, they will be asked to discuss the case topic for about 10-15 minutes giving their inputs and will be evaluated on the same. This round evaluates the candidate's’ public speaking skills similar to GD round. A personal interview (PI) round will follow thereafter.
Also, Gautam School of International Business, Visakhapatnam holds a selection process which is parallel to the rest of NMAT participating colleges. The selection procedures like GD/PI that are taken into consideration in GSIB Visakhapatnam during the admission process are:
Group Discussion & Personal Interview which will be conducted at Thiruvananthapuram/Bengaluru/ Chennai/ Hyderabad/ Visakhapatnam/ Bhubaneswar/ Raipur /Ranchi/Patna/ Kolkata / Guwahati/ Lucknow / Delhi/ Mumbai.
Applicants with a valid test score who suffice the cutoff can avail for the online mode of the selection process. Candidates who will be unable to attend the GD in person can avail the option of appearing for Micro Presentation through Skype and also give their Personal Interview through the same medium.
As per the exam pattern of NMAT 2020, the exam was a two-hour computer-based test. It will be conducted in 88-day long window commencing soon. The last day to attempt and appear for NMAT exam 2020 has also been declared by the authorities. The result is available for download in the form of scorecard.

I got 45% in 10th, 49% in 12th, 65% in graduaction, if i get 220 in NMAT and perform good in GDPI, would my seat be secured in NMIMS mumbai?
I hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that nmat have sectional cutt off procedure too which means you should marks greater than cut off each section which is 75+ in each section . In overall cut off, your score is very good and you holds high chances of getting a call. For getting name in merit list , academics profile is also considered which is low in your case as your marks are not even 60percent in 10+2. I would suggest you to prepare very hard for gd and pi and rest leave on your destiny
Hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future

I m really in baffled state, theres nowhere mentioned in msu, baroda s brochure about CMAT for bba admission. But one of your expert told me it is required with certain percentile. So can you pls give more information regarding CMAT, its preparations and subjects included?
CMAT stands for Common Management Admission Test and is conducted to get admission in various management programmes. It is purely done for admissions in master programmes and not for BBA. Whereas admission for bba in MSU, Baroda is done through an entrance followed by an interview both of which is conducted by the college itself . You need to apply for it online in their official website. The minimum eligibility criteria for the same is to have atleast 50% aggregate in your 12th.
I hope this helps.
