Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) is a national level entrance examination for entry into management programmes. Till 2018, it was conducted by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) every year as per the directions of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. The Test will now be conducted by the NTA. The CMAT is a three hour computer based online test which is conducted in a single session to evaluate the candidate's ability across various segments like Quantitative Technique, Logical Reasoning, Language Comprehension and General Awareness.
This test facilitates Institutions to select suitable graduate candidates for admission in all Management programs. The CMAT score is accepted by all AICTE-Approved Institutions/University Departments/Constituent Colleges/Affiliated Colleges.
In the year 2012-14, CMAT had replaced MH-CET (MH-CET was discontinued in 2012) and was conducted twice in a year once in September and in February. But, last year AICTE had conducted CMAT only once in a year. For this year CMAT 2019 shall be conducted in 2 slots by the NTA (National testing agency). Refer the page for details!
