The NMAT Agreement

Examinee Agreement

Before you register for the NMAT, you must have downloaded and read the NMAT Candidate Online Assessment Guide (COAG). The COAG is the official policy and procedure guide to the NMAT. In addition to adhering to the policies contained in the COAG, you will be asked to accept the NMAT Examinee Agreement when you register for the test. The NMAT Examinee Agreement aims at a thorough understanding of the NMAT testing policies and procedures and of maintaining a fair and secure testing process.  It sets forth terms under which you agree to register and take the NMAT, including, but not limited to, a prohibition on discussion or disclosure of test content. If you do not agree to these terms, you will not be permitted to register.

The NMAT Examinee Agreement will appear on eight (8) screens before you start the registration. The screens will appear in the following order:
