Determining Factors of NMAT Cutoff 2021

On the basis of the previous year's NMIMS NMAT cut off, we can say that NMAT cutoff 2021 will not vary much. The cutoff of NMAT 2021 will be determined keeping in mind the postgraduate admission process. NMAT cutoff will be released by the participating colleges on the basis of some determinants which are given below -

  • Past year cutoff trend

Full description of NMAT 2021 cutoff determining factors can be checked by candidates below:

  • Candidates appeared - Before finalizing the NMAT cutoff, authorities always keep in mind the number of candidates who appeared for the entrance exam. When the number of candidates appearing for the exam is more, then the NMAT cutoff 2021 released will be on the higher side. If not, then Visa Versa.

  • Reservation criteria - This is an important determinant while finalizing the cutoffs. Categories like SC/ ST etc., play an important role and the expected average NMAT cutoff is decided. Candidates belonging to the SC/ ST/ OBC category might have a lower admission cut off as compared to those who belong to open categories.

  • Availability of seats - This is the basis and most common factor which might be considered at the time of determining the cutoff of NMAT 2021 is the number of available seats. For example, If no. of candidates applying are less than the actual seats available in participating colleges, then the participating colleges will release a lower NMAT 2021 cutoff.

  • The difficulty level of NMAT 2021 - Participating colleges of NMAT 2021 will consider the difficulty level of the exam before they fix the cutoff for the admissions in the new session.
