It is designed to give you the confidence to perform to the best of your ability

When appearing for any test, nerves are always a contributing factor in how well you perform on test day. In designing NMAT by GMAC™ we’ve looked at ways to allay those nerves so that you can perform with confidence. Here are some ways that we drive that confidence:

  1. Taking the test multiple times: You can take the NMAT by GMAC™ three times in a given admissions cycle. This gives you the confidence that you have more than a single opportunity to perform your very best.
  2. Choosing the section order: The NMAT by GMAC™ allows you to choose the order in which you respond to each of the sections on the test. This allows you to play to your strengths.
  3. You can revise your answers: You can review your answers at the end of each section so you always have the opportunity to revise if you’re not sure of your original response.
  4. No negative marking – Sometimes you’re just not sure of the right answer on the test and are running out of time. Well you can make an informed guess instead of skipping a question without the fear of a penalty for a wrong answer. The system of no negative marking is in line with global practices.
