NIMCET, the NIT MCA Common Entrance Test, is a National Level Test conducted by NITs for admission to their Master of Computer Applications (MCA) program. Admission to the MCA program at NIT Agartala, NIT Allahabad, NIT Bhopal, NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Kurukshetra (Self-Financing), NIT Raipur, NIT Tiruchirappalli, NIT Warangal, and NIT Patna will be done through NIMCET 2024. 

NIMCET 2025 Eligibility Criteria

Indian Nationals securing at least 60% marks in aggregate or 6.5 CGPA on a 10-point scale (55% marks or 6.0 CGPA on a 10-point scale in case of SC/ ST/PwD) in

(i) Any UG program of a minimum of three years with Mathematics/ Statistics as one of the subjects OR

(ii) B.E./ B.Tech. from a recognized University/Institution are eligible to appear for NIMCET-2024. Conversion of scored marks from CGPA to percentage and vice-versa is not permitted. (CGPA other than a 10-point scale will be converted to a 10-point scale based on the unitary method)

NIMCET 2025 Exam Pattern

NIMCET is conducted once a year, with only one paper consisting of 120 questions to be completed within 120 minutes. It is a computer-based test comprising four sections. In NIMCET 2024, unlike previous years' papers, there will be Sectional Time Limits for the sections, meaning students cannot switch among them. The test will consist of three parts: Mathematics, Logical Ability, Computers, and General English. The allotted time for these parts will be 70, 30, and 20 minutes respectively.

Each wrong answer will incur a penalty of -25%. Therefore, incorrect responses in Mathematics, Logical Ability, Computers, and English will result in deductions of – 3, – 1.5, – 1.5, and – 1 marks, respectively.

Sections Time allowed Subjects Number of Questions Marks per Question Marks for a wrong answer Total Marks
Part I 70 min Mathematics 50 12 – 3 600
Part II 30 min Reasoning 40 6 – 1.5 240
Part III 20 min Computers  20 6 – 1.5 120
English 10 4 – 1 40

NIMCET 2024 Pattern

Ranking will be determined based on the total weighted marks obtained by each candidate. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be as follows: first, based on the weighted marks in Mathematics; if the tie persists, it will then be resolved based on the weighted marks in Analytical Ability and Logical Reasoning; if the tie remains unbroken, the weighted marks in Computer Awareness will be considered. If the tie still persists after applying the aforementioned criteria, it will then be resolved based on age, with preference given to the older candidate.

NIMCET Topic-Wise Weightage

The syllabus remains unchanged for NIMCET 2024, expected to be identical to that of NIMCET 2023. Below is the detailed topic-wise breakdown of each section.

Set Theory: Concepts of sets – Union – Intersection – Cardinality – Elementary counting permutations and combinations

Probability and Statistics: Basic concepts of probability theory, Averages, Dependent and independent events, frequency distributions, measures of central tendencies and dispersions.

Algebra: Fundamental operations in Algebra, Expansions, Factorization, simultaneous linear/quadratic equations, indices, logarithms, arithmetic, geometric and harmonic progressions, determinants and matrices.

Coordinate Geometry: Rectangular Cartesian coordinates, distance formulae, equation of a line, intersection of lines, pair of straight lines, equations of a circle, parabola, ellipse, and hyperbola.

Calculus: Limit of functions, Continuous function, Differentiation of function, tangents and normals, simple examples of maxima and minima. Integration of function by parts, by substitution, and by partial fraction; Definite integrals, Applications of Definite Integrals to areas.

Vectors: Position vector, addition and subtraction of vectors, scalar and vector products and their applications to simple geometrical problems and mechanics.

Trigonometry: Simple identities, trigonometric equations, properties of triangles, solution of triangles, heights and distances, General solutions of trigonometric equations.

The questions in this section will cover logical reasoning and quantitative aptitude. Some of the questions will be on comprehension of a logical situation and questions based on the facts given in the passage.
Organization of a Computer, Central Processing Unit (CPU), Structure of instructions in CPU, input/output devices, computer memory, back-up devices. Representation of characters, integers and fractions, binary and hexadecimal representations, Binary Arithmetic: Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, simple arithmetic and two’s complement arithmetic, floating point representation of numbers, Boolean algebra, truth tables, Venn diagrams.
Questions in this section will be designed to test the candidates’ general understanding of the English language. There will be questions on the following topics.
Basic English Grammar, Word Power, Comprehension, Vocabulary, Meaning of words and phrases, Synonyms and Antonyms
