NMAT2023 consists of three sections, each containing 36 questions. The option to skip to the next question without answering the current question has been disabled, making it mandatory for students to attempt all the questions. Since the exam is adaptive, students will be rewarded more for answering difficult questions correctly compared to easy questions. The topicwise questions in each of the sections vary for each student.
