  6. You’ll need to fill in information like academic details, work experience, preferred programs, and ID.

  8. You can choose up to 5 schools to send your official NMAT scores to.

Here are some extra pointers to keep in mind:

  1. You’ll need to upload a scanned copy of your relevant Govt. ID. Check the picture on the ID and ensure it is new. An old photo that does not match your current face will land you in trouble on exam day.
  2. You’ll also need to set up three security questions for MFA purposes. Before the exam, one of these three questions will be asked to authenticate you.
  3. Many times, candidates end up choosing the wrong time zone. Check if your timezone is right because you won’t be able to alter it later.
  4. You’ll be able to download the admit card from your dashboard itself.


How to apply for NMAT 2024 retake registration?


NMAT will allow you to appear for the test three times in the 70 days between October 10th and December 19th. All you need to take care of is that there is a 15-day gap between two consecutive attempts.


Registering for the retake is simple. You can find the reschedule tab on your NMAT by GMAC dashboard. Follow the same instructions as given above, and you’ll be set.
