The Graduate Management Admission Council has said that the candidates appearing for the NMAT by GMAC exam (earlier called NMIMS Management Aptitude Test) will get three attempts in the 75-day test cycle this year onwards.
That means a candidates can submit the best score from the three attempts to a B-School of their choice. This will ensure that the candidate is given an opportunity to give his best score to the institute that he wishes to join.
After the results are declared, candidates can view their results and then decide to apply to business school or retake the test. The test will not have any negative marking either.
This year 12 institutions apart from NMIMS will accept NMAT scores i.e. NMIMS University, Alliance University, SRM University, BML Munjal University, VIT University, ICFAI University, Ansal University, Mody University, NIIT University, Thapar University, Shoolini University and Woxsen School of Business.
The registrations for NMAT began on July 2, 2015 and will close on October 5, 2015. The exam is scheduled to take place starting October 6 and will continue through December 19, 2015, at 27 centres in 18 locations across India.
