Is CAT harder than Nmat?

According to me, NMAT is so much easier than CAT and most of the candidates who prepare for CAT can easily attempt NMAT. Therefore, if you are well prepared for CAT, NMAT should not be an issue. There are also some minor topics that differ in both exams other than that almost all the topics remain the same.
