The major difference is that CAT scores are accepted across many colleges in India. In NMAT you will be having limited options in college. Because it is acceptable in some colleges. NMAT is conducted by a particular institute called Narsee Monjee for selecting MBA students for their college. NMAT has a different exam structure and syllabus from CAT with No negative marking. Thanks.
