Questions related to NMAT by GMAC
i have ews certificate so can i attach ths certificate for nmat registration form it will b work or not??
Hi, so basically NMAT exam i.e., MBA entrance exam which is conducted by GMAC i.e., Graduate Management Admission Council doesn't provide any sort of reservations.
So sorry to tell you that your certificate won't work for this exam. Alot of other exams provide reservations, following are some of them:
- CAT which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
- IIFT which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
- MAH-CET which have 10% reservation for EWS candidate
You can apply for any of these exams. Also, NMAT don't provide any kind or reservations to anyone so the completion level is basically same for every body.
So I'd suggest you to prepare the best for your exam and do your best.
Hope this is helpful.
is 3 month preparation enough for nmat?
NMAT is one such exam that doesn’t really requires you to study for 12 to 14 hours a day as compared to other aptitude exams such as CAT, SNAP, XAT, etc. But this doesn’t mean it is a cakewalk. NMAT is designed to test your Strategic Approach of selecting and answering the questions in a pressure environment and I feel it can be cracked in 3 months.
The first and foremost advice would be that get thorough with the pattern of NMAT and devise a strategy that works out best for you. Don’t be afraid if initially you are not clearing the sectional and overall cutoffs. Give yourself 2 weeks time and diligently practice mocks.
Hope this helps!

when can i attempt nmat free mock test its showing 404 error page not found.
Make sure you are following the same steps -
Visit the official website of NMAT by GMAC.
Find the "NMAT by GMAC Official Prep" link in the taskbar.
A new page showing checkboxes for "Practice 1", "Practice 2" and "Practice 3" will appear.
Click on "Register for Practice 1" to attempt the NMAT mock test 2021 for free. "Practice 2" and "Practice 3" will be paid mock tests.

If you are still facing the same issue contact on their customer care number
if a sc category student has 67.77 in ssc , 52.27 in hsc , 7.0 cgpa in graduation and he is non engineer.if he score 99+ in cat so is there any chances that he will getting any call from old or main iim. he should target cat or he can prepare for other exam like xat , snap , nmat , iift ?
It is very difficult to state definitely whether you'll get a call from the old (IIMs I,K,L) or main (IIMs A,B,C) IIMs with your past academics records even on scoring 99+ percentile in CAT. There are reservations no doubt and you will be eligible for that, but usually for these IIMs especially IIM A,B and C, somewhat around 99 percentiles are required for non-engineers with good academic scores for non-reserved candidates.
All that said, under the CAT umbrella several other B-Schools come most of which do not see your past academics and a lot of them provide really good placements at par with IIMs. So with 99+ in CAT you'll easily be able to get calls from them.
Therefore, work hard for CAT and let fate decide what is in for you.
All the best.
