With NMAT declaring the scores of Window 1 & 2 the obvious question in the minds of the NMAT takers are: Should I go for a retake? Which institute/program can I get an interview call from? Obviously the answer to these questions is in trying to predict the cutoff that NMIMS would have for its various programs. So let us first have a look at the NMAT cutoffs of the last few papers.
