|1. How do I register for NMAT–2011?
You can register for NMAT-2011 through an online registration application available on website www.pearsonvueindia.com/nmat from 9:00 am (IST) onwards starting September 8, 2010. Online registrations will close at 11:59 pm Indian Standard Time (IST) on October 15, 2010. NMIMS shall not accept registrations from candidates in any other mode or form.
2. Why do I need to register early?
Candidate will be able to schedule the test on his / her preferred date, time slot and Test Centre only if seats are available at that Test Centre for the date and time slot being sought (First Come First Served basis). As the candidates will be required to schedule their NMAT-2011 test after registering through an online application system, the earlier they register, the earlier they will receive their username and password and the earlier they will be able to schedule their exam online. Candidates may not get their preferred date, slot and Test Centre if other candidates have already taken up the available seats for that particular date, slot and center. In such a situation, candidates would need to look at other options of date, time slot and Test Centre that would be available to them, and take a decision, and schedule themselves accordingly.
3. Does the “First come First serve” principle apply to Registration or Scheduling or both?
“First come First serve” principle applies to both Registration and scheduling. The earlier you register and make payment, the earlier you will receive your scheduling information. And the earlier you schedule your test, the higher the chances of you getting your preferred date, time and location.
