CMAT Exam Accepting Colleges: List, Cut off, Percentile and Score
CMAT Exam accepting colleges for MBA/PGDM admission 2017-19 are more than 400 with CMAT score cut off range going from 70 to 99. All the colleges under CMAT offer AICTE approved MBA/PGDM courses. Probably CMAT is the only exam that enables the MBA colleges accepting CMAT scores to determine their CMAT score cut off by assessing the candidates on the basis of raw scores as well as the percentile scores.

None of the MBA colleges under CMAT have a fixed CMAT score cut off but a range of CMAT scores lead to cut offs in top MBA colleges also. For example, if the CMAT score cut off in a top B-school is 99 percentile in CMAT exam, the award of this percentile score may begin from 225 and may go upto 299 raw score out of 400 marks. All the candidates in this range may be considered for shortlisting at top MBA colleges accepting CMAT scores.

Past MBA admission trends with CMAT scores
Top MBA Colleges accepting CMAT Scores during past years needed 90 to 99+ percentile in the exam to shortlist and offer admission to the candidates. BIMTECH, GIM Goa, Great Lakes, IFMR Chennai, IMT Hyderabad, IMT Nagpur, K J Somaiya Mumbai, SIMSREE Mumbai, XIME Bangalore among others shortlisted the candidates with high CMAT percentile however moderate CMAT scores awarded high percentile to the candidates in the past exams and that led to admission in top MBA colleges accepting CMAT scores.

The brief exam analysis and past CMAT result will also reflect the CMAT score trends. At a score of 225, more than 99 percentile could be scored in CMAT 2016. Similarly with the score, as low as 185, candidates could score 85 percentile in CMAT. Same scoring pattern is expected in CMAT 2017.

Type of top MBA colleges under CMAT
Among the MBA colleges accepting CMAT scores are the University; University affiliated or top private MBA colleges running AICTE approved management programmes.
