Ques. The Institutes that offered you Admission? 

Ans. While filling the NMAT application form, we had to specify which college we want to get into. So as SPPSPTM (Shobhaben Pratap Bhai Patel School of Pharmacy and Technology Management) was the only school I applied to get into, I received an admission letter from it.

Ques. How did you manage your NMAT preparation along with your Graduation studies/working hours?  

Ans. The NMAT exam included subjects like Mathematics, English and logical Aptitude. My NMAT exam was scheduled on May 12, which was a few days after my board exams got over. I studied the entire year for my exams but whenever I got time I used to solve papers of other management colleges that included questions from these subjects. After my graduation got over I studied for NMAT on a regular basis. So it wasn’t that difficult.
