Payment Procedure

You can pay online using a credit card or go through an over-the-counter transaction at the bank. Payment should be made on or before the deadline for registration. If you have any concern about your payment, you may contact the NMAT Secretariat. Please note that you are not completely registered or fully qualified to take the NMAT if you have not paid the NMAT fees even if you have already downloaded, printed, and accomplished your NMAT ID Form.

Credit Card Payment

Major credit cards are accepted and processed by SecurePay. As soon as credit card payment is completed online, you will immediately receive a payment confirmation e-mail together with your NMAT ID Form. You can then view your application status and download the NMAT Practice Set.

All foreign applicants or those applying from abroad and taking the test here in the Philippines can only pay through credit card.

Over-the-Counter Bank Payment

Over-the-Counter Bank payments can be made in all Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) branches nationwide.  Only cash and full payment of PhP1,900.00 is accepted. BPI may collect PhP30.00 to PhP50.00 as additional service charge. 

A Bank Reference Number appears on your NMAT ID Form. Bring this form with you to the nearest BPI branch and fill out a deposit/payment slip with the following details:

 Account Name/Merchant's Name: Center for Educational Measurement, Inc. (CEM)
CEM's BPI Account Number: 1881-0450-24 
Policy/Plan/Reference No.: (Bank Reference Number written on your NMAT ID Form)
Policy/Planholder's Name: (your full name as written on your NMAT ID Form)

Present the deposit/payment slip to the bank teller together with your payment. Keep the Client's Copy of the deposit/payment slip for reference or verification purposes.

You shall receive your payment confirmation e-mail within two (2) business days. You may then view your application status and download the NMAT Practice Set as soon as payment is confirmed.

Note: Over-the-counter bank deposit and payment via credit card are the only official modes of payment recognized by the registration system. If you pay via online or mobile fund transfers or via ATM deposit, you may NOT be included in the room assignments and may NOT be able to take the test.

You shall receive your CEM Official Receipt (OR) on the test day.
