The exam is conducted by Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), to select students for its BBA, B.Com (Hons), B.Sc Finance and other courses at its campuses located at Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Bengaluru, Indore, Dhule and Chandigarh. NPAT is conducted on two days and students have a choice to appear on one or both days. In case, a student appears for both days, the best score from among the two attempts is considered.
NPAT is a computer-based test. Day 1 of the exam was held today at various locations. The exam was on the expected lines, having three sections with no sectional time limit. Each question carried one mark and there was no negative marking. The duration of the paper was 100 minutes.
Quantitative & Numerical Ability:
The section was moderate to difficult. Through this section, NPAT 2019 tried to cover every topic possible. Questions ranged from the area of Trigonometry, Sets and Functions, Arithmetic, Numbers System and Algebra.
