The Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) offers post graduate level management programs for which it conducts a national level entrance exam called the Narsee Monjee Aptitude Test (NMAT). The NMAT is conducted every year to select suitable candidates for the post graduate programs offered by the NMIMS. The admission to the courses such as MBA Core, MBA-Banking, MBA-Capital Market, MBA-HR, MBA-Actuarial Science, MBA-Pharmaceuticals and many more are done through the NMAT. The courses offered by NMIMS are very highly valued throughout the industry and therefore the level of competition in the NMAT is really high. To ace the NMAT, the candidates must first know the pattern of the test.


The NMAT will have a total of 120 multiple choice questions that will ascertain the candidate’s aptitude in quantitative ability, language skills and logical reasoning, which the candidates will have to attempt within the duration of 120 minutes. On an average, the candidates will have 1 minute for every question.

Since the questions will come from quantitative ability, logical reasoning and language skills, the candidates must have a strong hold in all three.

Time is an important factor. The candidates must practice well enough to be able to solve questions with big numbers without errors easily. The candidates aiming to ace NMAT must also develop a habit of reading so as to increase the reading speed. The NMAT paper does not have any negative marking scheme, unlike CAT where marks are deducted for wrong answers. The candidates must not fear to attempt a question even if he/she thinks that the answer might be wrong. This will definitely increase the chances of scoring high in NMAT but only to some extent. The NMAT aspirants must hold on to strong dedication from the beginning to the end because there is no substitute for practice and hard work.
