NMAT 2020 Exam Pattern

NMAT 2020 is a computer adaptive test which consists of 3 sections - Language skills, Logical Reasoning, and Quantitative Skills. The overall test duration is 2 hrs. There is an individual time limit for each section which is mentioned in the table below. According to previous years, it is expected that the students will be free to choose the order in which they wish to attempt the paper. All the questions in the NMAT exam are MCQ type questions. Being a computer adaptive test, there is no set marking scheme however each section will have a range of 12-120 in terms of scoring, and the overall score will be out of 360.

For those of you who are wondering what a computer adaptive test is, it is a test where the questions are chosen based on the previous questions answered. If you answer a question correctly, the question will likely be tougher than the previous one while an incorrect attempt will generally be followed by an easier question. This sequence holds true generally but not in all cases so it is difficult to predict whether you attempted the previous question correctly.
