November Online NMAT



The NMAT online will still be a timed and supervised test. Live proctors and AI-powered systems will monitor the conduct of the examinations. To take the test, you will need:

  1. A quiet room where you can take the exam alone, free of distractions
  2. Laptop or desktop computer with Windows Operating System
  3. Working webcam (either built-in or separate from your desktop or laptop computer)
  4. Stable internet connection with speed of at least 512 kbps
  5. Secure exam browser (link to be provided). This is an application you will need to download and install on your computer to be able to take the exam securely. You will not be able to access the test without this application.

The exam platform will be equipped with a digital scratch pad. Examinees may use a small whiteboard with whiteboard pen (or other easily erasable writing materials) instead of the digital scratch pad.

Use of scratch papers or any external, connected devices such as USB, additional monitor, extended keyboards, writing tablets, a touchscreen stylus, or any other similar on-screen writing devices will NOT be allowed.
