Can anyone tell me the syllabus of other management entrance exam , apart from CAT like NMAT etc.

Anuja 17th May, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

For all management entrance exam the syllabus includes Logical reasoning, Verbal reasoning and quants which is common. The difference is in number of questions and difficulty level

For other exams apart from CAT

NMAT MAT ATMA has the same syllabus just one or two sections will be different but the basic is same

CMAT has additional section of general knowledge

So there is only difference of number of questions and difficulty level but other than that everything is same

Hope This helps

Can anyone explain to me about "No shows" in NMAT exam by GMAC

Smeet Almeida 7th May, 2020

Hello, Likhith.

The NMAT examination by GMAC allows an individual to appear for the exam a total number of 3 times, including 'no shows'

Here, 'no show' refers to the absence of the aspirant during the time of examination. If an aspirant, due to some reason, is unable to appear for the test on the scheduled date, it will be counted as a failed attempt.

Hope this information helped you.

Good luck!


Can i attempt for nmat 3 times with in 10 days of 75 day allotted period.

harshita sharan Student Expert 7th May, 2020
Hello aspirant,

No you cannot take nmat exams three times within a time period of 10 days. The NMAT exam is allowed to be given for three times in one academic year and the Test taker are allowed to schedule the retake test on a date which is 15 days or more, later than the date of his/her previous attempt. This means that there must be a gap of atleast 15 days between two nmat test which a student takes.

Good luck
