How is the NMAT exam different from the other exams?

NMAT difficulty level is more moderate than other entrance tests, but it isn’t easy to crack. Entrance exams like the CAT are non-adaptive tests. But NMAT is a computer-based adaptive test, which means you are asked questions in the 2nd/3rd attempt based on the performance in the first attempt.

Does CAT and NMAT have the same syllabus?

No. They don‘t have the same syllabus. NMAT maintains a moderate difficulty level and CAT maintains a high difficulty level due to its extensive syllabus.

Both exam's syllabus constitutes three sections,

CAT exam: Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension (VARC), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Quantitative Ability (QA).

NMAT exam: Quantitative Skills, Logical Reasoning, and Language Skills.

Can I clear NMAT in one month?

No. You can’t clear NMAT in one month unless you are a genius. However, preparation in other entrance exams can be advantageous. But, if you don't succeed on your first try, you still have two more attempts within the 70 to 90-day testing window.
