International English Language Testing System
Hi Sai Krishna,
First of all I need to know if you are talking about MBA/PGDM from NMIMS Mumbai/Bangalore/Hyderabad campus.
For admission to these 3 B-schools and pursuing MBA or PGDM in Business Management or HR Management you need to sit for NMAT by GMAC exam and crack it. There is no requirement of IELTS or TOEFL.
As far as NMAT is concerned it is held once a year, but the exam can be taken as per the candidate's suitable date within a window of around 2.5 months from October to mid of December. You also get to attempt the exam a maximum of three times as per your wish but you will have to pay everytime you take an attempt. The best of three scores are considered for you final selection. The exam is a non-negative marking exam. There are three sections in the NMAT exam. They are Quantitative Skills, Language Skills, and Logical Reasoning. There are in all 120 questions and 120 minutes to answer them. Although each of the section has fixed timings and a fixed number of questions.
Language Skills - 32 questions - 22 minutes
Quantitative Skills - 48 questions - 60 minutes
Logical Reasoning - 40 questions - 38 minutes
The sections can be ordered as per your convenience. If you prefer the CAT style then start with Language Skills and follow it up with the other two.
If you are someone who prefers Quants to Language skills, then it's best to start with Logical Reasoning, follow it up with Quantitative Skills and end with Language Skills. This is my personal favorite style as among the three sections, Logical Reasoning is the most taxing one and it's best to attempt it with a fresh mind. If you are average in Quants you can still ease through Quantitative Skills. Language Skills of NMAT is one of the easiest among other B-school entrance exams.
The entire exam is more of a test of speed. The level of questions are from easy to moderate with more of them being on the easier side. So, it's the speed that matters. Being a non-negative exam it becomes imperative that you don't leave any question. There is also no point in deliberating between two answers. Just mark one option and move to the next question. Don't think that you will come back to the question later on. Mark an option and mark the question for review and move on. If you get time you come back else let your luck have a go at it as you had already marked an option.
Now coming to the cutoffs.
NMIMS Bangalore and Hyderabad campus generally gives you a call with 185+ scores. 190 would be a safe score to expect a call for PGDM from those two campuses.
NMIMS Mumbai cutoffs go a bit higher. 207+ is a safe score to expect a call. So 210 onwards one should expect a call for sure for both MBA BM and HR from the Mumbai campus.
All three are pretty good campuses to pursue management education.
Please revert back for any further queries or help. Happy to help!!
