## Join NIMCET 23 course

#### NIMCET:

NIMCET is a national level entrance test conducted by NITs for admission to their MCA program. The admission to MCA program offered by all the NITs that participate in NIMCET is based on the rank obtained in NIMCET.

#### Duration of MCA Course:

The duration of MCA programme at NIT Patna is two years.
NIT Warangal offers a three-year duration MCA programme but with an option for the students to exit at the end of successful two years and the title of such exit would be Post Graduate Advanced Diploma in Computer Applications. The duration of MCA programme is three years in the remaining Participating Institutes.
(Please refer to the websites of the respective Institutes for further information)

#### Exam Pattern:

NIMCET test will be conducted with only one question paper containing 120 multiple choice questions covering the following subjects:

Mathematics: 50 questions
Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning: 40 questions
Computer Awareness:  10 questions
General English: 20 questions

In the final score the weightage of Higher Mathematics, Reasoning, Computers and English questions are 12, 6, 8, 4. That makes the total marks in the paper as 50×12 + 40×6 + 10×8 + 20×4 = 1000. Students must give adequate time for practicing higher mathematics as it constitutes 60% of the total marks.

Ranking will be based on total weighted marks obtained by a candidate.

In case of a tie, it will be resolved based on weighted marks in Mathematics, then on weighted marks in Analytical Ability & Logical reasoning and then on weighted marks in Computer Awareness.

In case the tie is not resolved by the criteria stated in the above paragraph, then it will be resolved by age i.e., in favour of older candidate.
