How is the NMAT by GMAC 2016 designed?

The NMAT™ exam is computer-delivered and gives each candidate a randomly generated test. The number of questions, difficulty levels, and the time limit for each of the sections is predetermined and, under normal administration conditions, are the same regardless of when and where the test is administered.

 

The NMAT exam has three sections targeted at measuring different skills – Language Skills, Quantitative Skills, and Logical Reasoning.

Allotted Time

Language Skills

38 minutes

 

Each of the sections is further divided into Sub-sections

 

Quantitative – 7 sub-sections

Logical Reasoning – 7 sub-sections

Will I be able to review questions and/or sections?

Yes, you can review the sections of NMAT by GMAC 2016, each section within the allotted section time. Review screen, at the end of every section will give you the opportunity to either move directly to incomplete (unanswered) questions or flagged for review questions or review all or any question. Once you have moved ahead from one section to the next section, you can’t go back to the previous section. Hence, you need to complete (answering and reviewing) each of the three sections in their respective allotted time limits.

In case I complete answering and reviewing a section before the allotted section time completion, does the balance time get added to the next section(s)?

No, in NMAT-2016, you cannot add balance time of one section to the other. In case you complete answering and reviewing a section before the allotted section time gets over, you may choose either to revise the section or move to the next section, but the balance time cannot be added on to the next section timing.

What is the cut off list based on - percentile scores or equated scores?

Scaled scores- All of the test forms are equated to account for any differences in overall difficulty and the raw test scores are placed on a common scale. This process ensures that scores are comparable across test forms such that the scores are not impacted by different candidates getting different test forms.

 

Percentile scores- The percentile rank or score shows how a candidate performed compared to all other candidates who took the exam (e.g. all candidates who took the NMAT exam in 2015). For example, if a candidate is said to be at the 75th percentile, the candidate scored better than 75 percent of the candidates who took the NMAT in the year 2015.
