Management Aptitude Test (MAT) is another national level entrance test for admission to PGDM institutes where thousands of the aspirants test their skills. The test is conducted by AIMA (All India management Association). Usually there are 4 MAT tests in a year February, May, September and December. MAT scores are considered for admission by number of management institutes offering PGDM programmes which are equivalent to MBA.

According to AIMA ‘MAT is a standardised test being administered since 1988 to facilitate B-Schools to screen candidates for admission to MBA and allied programmes. Govt. of India, Ministry of HRD approved MAT as a national level test in 2003. Any B-School - national or international - can consider MAT Score as an admission input based on the Score Cards issued to the candidates.’

AIMA claims MAT as the largest test of its kind in the nation. More than 600 institutes across India accept MAT scores. On February 18, 2013 Hon’ble Supreme Court of India allowed the petition to continue MAT as an entrance test to PGDM institutes.

MAT has different testing pattern

Paper pencil mode- MAT in Paper pencil mode was conducted on Dec 7, 2014. The test was of 150 minutes duration and was conducted from 10 AM to 12.30 PM.

Computer Based online test- Candidates opting for CBT online test were required to appear in the test on Dec 13, 2014. The test was held in different time slots subject to availability. According to AIMA ‘If the number of candidates registered for Computer Based Test is limited and can be accommodated in a single day; the test will be completed on 13 Dec 2014 itself.’  It implies that in case there is more number of candidates the test may be conducted in the forthcoming days as well.

Calculation of percentile: utilize the score   

Calculation of percentile in MAT is based on the score of 4 out of 5 components of Entrance test. 200 questions carry 1 mark each with ¼ negative marking. The maximum score of 200 in MAT is taken as the composite score of 800 on a scale of 1 to 100. Cut off score in the B schools would imply the selection would be made if other parameters are also the same. For example if there are 10 students with the same score are applying to a B school and only 4 seats are vacant, the candidate with better profile, work experience, higher age and gender diversity will be given preference.  

Candidates who have scored 500+ may expect a good B school, if they are quick to react and apply to the preferred B schools from the following list according to their scores.

However, before applying to B schools in Maharashtra the candidates should cross check the website of the respective B school as well as the DTE Maharashtra site regarding the acceptance of MAT scores. A few B schools in Maharashtra like JBIMS have stopped accepting MAT scores. The applicants should search for applying in these B schools where MAT scores are accepted.
