About MAT

MAT is conducted by Centre for Management Services (CMS) which is the specialized division of AIMA undertaking testing and other management services. Graduate or Final year degree course students in any discipline from a recognized university in India can write MAT. MAT scores are considered by a wide range of B-schools including some good B-schools. While some of the B-Schools using MAT scores for admission also accept CAT scores, the competition levels in MAT may be lower than those in CAT.

Latest Test Pattern of MAT

The following is the test pattern of the MAT examination to be held in Feb 2018

  • No. of Sections - 5
  • No. of questions - 200
  • No. of questions for each section - 40

Time - 150 minutes

The consolidated score is evaluated by taking only four areas into account. Indian and global environment (GK) is not the part of the consolidated score. Hence, the scoring is done out of a maximum possible score of 160 marks (@1 mark for 160 qs). However, the score card (by AIMA) does not give the net marks. It gives the scaled score and the percentile in each and every section. It also gives the overall composite score and the overall percentile
