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 2019.

Candidates who will be shortlisted on the basis of their performance in NMAT by GMAC 2019, 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:

  1. Group Discussion (GD)

  2. Written Ability Test (WAT)

  3. Personal Interview (PI)

In some institutes such as SDA Bocconi, there is some weightage given to the following parameters besides the ones listed above:

  1. Academic Abilities - Candidates with a consistent academic background and a demonstrated ability to work under pressure have an advantage in the selection process.

  2. 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.

Gitam 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. Slots will be available from October 2019 to February 2020 every Saturday between 10 am to 4 pm (excluding holidays).

As per the exam pattern of NMAT 2019, the exam will be a two-hour computer-based test. It will be conducted in a 75-day long window commencing from October 4, 2019. The last day to attempt and appear for NMAT exam 2019 is December 17, 2019. The final announcement of NMAT 2019 results will take place in the third week of January 2020. The result will be available for download in the form of scorecard until March 31, 2020.
