The structure of the NMAT changed in 2020 - from a computer based test it became an Adaptive Test. As a result, the weightage allotted to difficult questions was higher than that allotted to easy questions. Students could not skip any questions and the level of difficulty of the next question depended on whether the previous attempt was correct or incorrect. Students, therefore, are advised to ensure that the initial set of questions are attempted correctly. Clicking the Next button without selecting an option resulted in the prompt You must complete your answer to this question to continue. The instructions for the test mentioned that unattempted questions at the close of the section would attract a penalty.
Overall, the test being adaptive, it rewarded the candidates with higher marks for more difficult questions. And, by not allowing the candidates to skip a question and by penalising the candidates for unattempted questions at the end of the test , the students were made to pay attention to not only accuracy but also to time management of the test. The adaptive format of the test also implied that the topic wise break-up of questions that individual students faced.
A candidate who has completed qualifying qualification from any Foreign University must obtain an equivalence certificate from Association of Indian Universities (AIU)
