National Aptitude Test (NAT) 2012, an all India level common entrance test, is all set to take place on May 20th. The exam will be administered to meet the requirements of students seeking admissions in multiple Institutions through a Common Entrance Test (CET) to fill-in open quota seats for courses like MBA, MCA, PGDRP, and PGDGC for post graduation level and BBA, BCA, B.Com and Hotel Management for the under-graduation level.
However, under special condition; students applying through Kendriya Vidyalaya Samiti (KVS) and Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) can buy the form from SAHEI office. The result of the entrance exam will be declared on 31st May.
First held in 2005, NAT is conducted by SRDE’s Association of Higher Education Institutions (SAHEI), established under the aegis of Society for Research & Development in Education (SRDE) every year in an effort to facilitate a single window system for the students seeking admission in non-science streams such as management and other professional programmes.
Dr Mukesh Gupta, Secretary General, SRDE’s Association of Higher Education Institutions (SAHEI) said, “Our aim is to simplify the entrance test system in higher education for the students opting for non-science domains. The fact that there is no CET like AIEEE at the 10+2 level in non-science domain, we expect NAT to act as one of the major transit mechanisms for students from school education to higher education for non-science students.”
