The exam was acquired by Graduate Management Admission Council in 2015 and therefore, the NMAT has been renamed as NMAT by GMAC and as such now the NMAT exam full form is NMAT by Graduate Management Admission Council.

 

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 30 institutes in India and is conducted by GMAC.

NMAT Windows: NMAT 2019 Important Dates
There are 5 NMAT windows in 2019 beginning from October 4 to December 17, 2019. They cover all the NMAT 2019 important dates. This  system is determined on the basis of declaration of NMAT result for each window. The five windows are:

 

NMAT Window 1: October 4 to October 18, 2019
It is recommended to appear in latter part of this window 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 now. 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 this window. If you appear/retake NMAT now, you may expect a very good percentile 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 this window 4 and would prefer window 5.

 

NMAT Window 5: December 3 to December 17, 2019

It will be better to appear in NMAT Window 5 towards the end of it as by this time the clarity on NMAT last leg paper pattern can be understood and after appearing in other exams, you are well prepared to take NMAT by then
