Normalization of NPAT scores

The normalization method is used for NMIMS NPAT calculation for 2021 result to evaluate the fair performance of the applicants. The normalization method collects each applicant's marks and processes them through a statistical combination to make those marks fit for comparison. To normalize the score, it is necessary to know the number of candidates who have secured fewer marks than the applicant, whose score will be calculated under this process. Also, the total number of applicants is also required.

The normalization of marks is applied for NMIMS NPAT 2021. Here is an overview of the process and formula that is applied for NMIMS NPAT normalization:

  • A percentile score of the applicant is calculated.
  • The formula employed for calculating the percentile: 100 * (The number of applicants grouped with marks less than the candidate) / (divided by) the total number of the candidates.
  • For instance, 100 x 2300 (the number of candidates who appeared for the same course as a candidate but have secured fewer marks) / divided by 48,00,00 (total number of candidates who appeared for NMIMS NPAT). 

NPAT 2021 Counselling

The counselling round for NPAT 2021 will be held after the NPAT cut off and merit list is released. The result will be announced on Jun 1, 2021. The candidates can expect their counselling calls in the last week of April, 2021, or the first week of May, 2021.

Usually, NMIMS conducts three rounds of counselling. The steps involved in NPAT Counselling are:

  • Preparation of NPAT Merit List: The NPAT merit list is prepared after the result is announced. 
  • The top scorers who make it to the first merit list are then called for counselling, which is held at one of the NMIMS campuses. 
  • The candidates have to mark their presence in person on the day of NPAT counselling.
  • The seats of those candidates who fail to attend the counselling are passed on as vacant seats to the second round of NPAT counselling. 
  • A fresh merit list is prepared for the second round of counselling, where the shortlisted candidates are again invited to the designated NMIMS campus.
