NMAT is the abbreviated form for Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) Management Aptitude Test. The exam was acquired by Graduate Management Admission Council in 2015 and therefore, the NMAT has been renamed as NMAT by GMAC.

 

Prior to 2015, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), Mumbai used to conduct the NMAT exclusively for admission to its MBA programmes and therefore the full form of NMAT stood as NMIMS Management Aptitude Test. Now the NMAT score is accepted by more than 20 institutes in India and is conducted by GMAC, so its name has been changed to NMAT by GMAC.

 

NMAT Windows
There are 5 NMAT windows in 2019 beginning from October 4 to December 17, 2019. These NMAT window system is determined on the basis of declaration of NMAT result for each NMAT window. The five NMAT 2019 windows are:

 

NMAT Window 1: October 4 to October 18, 2019
It recommended to appear in latter part of NMAT window 1 as you are well aware by this time how has been the NMAT paper pattern

 

NMAT Window 2: October 19 to November 2, 2019
Your NMAT window 1 result is out now, you can decide whether to re-take the exam in NMAT window 2. Better to take NMAT towards the end of the window

 

NMAT Window 3: November 3 to November 17, 2019
Most candidates targeting top IIMs and appearing in CAT 2019 may not prefer the NMAT window 3. If you appear/retake NMAT in window 3, you may expect a very good percentile in NMAT window 3 as fewer candidates are there and most of them are not top students

 

NMAT Window 4: November 18 to December 2, 2019
Two prominent exams CAT 2019 and IIFT 2019 lie in the 4th NMAT window. Very few candidates are expected to appear in the NMAT window 4 and would prefer window 5.

 

NMAT Window 5: December 3 to December 17, 2019
