Exam Score

Your scorecard will be available for download within 48 hours of taking the NMAT by GMAC exam and you will be notified by email when it is ready. It will include your scaled section scores and total score.

Please note: testing incidents and audits of online exams may delay scorecard availability by 5 to 7 working days.

Scaled scores: Questions in the NMAT by GMAC™ exam are selected from the question pool for each examinee based on his or her performance on the questions previously answered. The questions a candidate receives are targeted at his or her ability level; therefore, a high-scoring candidate generally receives a more difficult sample of questions than a low-scoring candidate. The NMAT by GMAC™ exam is scored by first obtaining the candidate’s final ability estimate based on the probabilistic model approach of modern exam theory, and then transformed to a scaled score ranging from 12 to 120.
