NMAT—2014 is a computer-delivered test in which each candidate gets a randomly generated exam from a pool of questions. Candidates have a choice of selecting the order/sequence of the test sections. Each section has an individual time limit and candidates need to complete answering the questions and reviewing the section within the allotted section time. The number of questions and time limit of the test sections are predetermined and, under normal administration conditions, are the same regardless of when and where the test is administered. The computer displays questions one at a time. Only after a candidate takes an action on the first question, will the computer display the next question.
