NMIMS NMAT 2011 can now be attempted 3 times
Students will now get a better chance at cracking NMAT, the entrance test of Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS).
The entrance test, which went online the last year, is now set to offer three attempts to MBA aspirants from this year. The aim is to enable students to give their best performance.
Starting from October 2010, NMAT will have a window period of three months, allowing the choice of two retakes to students, with the best of three scores being considered for admissions to various courses at NMIMS.
There are over 450 seats available across the various courses. They include MBA core, MBA-capital market, MBA-banking, MBA-actuarial science, MBA-pharmaceutical management, MBA-HR, PGDM and EPGDBM programmes at NMIMS. The online registration for NMAT will start from September 8.
“We are graduating to the next level of computer-based testing this year,” said NMIMS vice-chancellor Rajan Saxena. “It will be convenient for students not only in terms of selection of the date for NMAT, but also help them to improve their performance and in turn improve their chances of success in NMIMS’s MBA programmes.”
Last year the registrations had started in October and the exam, which was spread over 10 days, started on January 30, 2010. However, this year, it will be spread over a period of three months.
