National Testing Service (NTS) is an institution in Pakistan that conducts academic performance assessment tests. It is like Educational Testing Service (ETS) in the US.

There are many tests and services which National Testing Service is offering but NTS offers two major types of tests, the National Aptitude Test (NAT) and the Graduate Assessment Test (GAT).

NAT is for students looking for admission to colleges and universities. GAT is for graduates looking for admission to postgraduate education. NTS exams are as well used to determine qualifications of students looking for advanced study overseas.

National Aptitude Test (NAT) is for admissions in NTS linked universities / DAIs (degree awarding institutes). The applicants will appear in a single test simply and will be entitled for admission to all universities in the particular subject group.
