The three sections of the NMAT are individually timed. This means there is sectional cutoff time. You cannot switch between sections in any case.

No Negative Marking – attempt maximum questions!

Test takers must review their answers (within the allotted time) before moving to another section of the exam, as once the candidate closes out of a section, all answers are final.

Section-wise Exam Pattern:

Every test-taker will receive a unique test-paper however all will be of equal difficulty and will be scaled across sections and totals for parity.
