5 Reasons to Take CMAT 2019
CMAT has remained a preferred MBA entrance exam for the candidates and with the creation of dedicated testing agency – NTA, it is expected that CMAT 2019 will offer admission chances in yet more B-schools than earlier. Here are the five important reasons that may guide you about the key benefits of taking CMAT 2019:

1. 500+  MBA COLLEGES ACCEPTING CMAT 2019: JBIMS, SIMSREE, PUMBA, K J Somaiya, GIM Goa, BIMTECH, Great Lakes, IFMR are only some of the  500 MBA colleges accepting CMAT 2019 exam scores.

2. MODERATE DIFFICULTY EXAM: CMAT 2019 is to remain a moderate difficulty level exam with 100 simple questions equally divided in four sections namely, Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation (25 Qs); Language Comprehension (25 Qs); Logical Reasoning (25 Qs) and General Awareness (25 Qs). Unlike in CAT or XAT exams where you can find twisted and difficult questions which make you think many times before arriving at the answer, the MCQ type questions in CMAT are of  moderate difficulty level and the answer options are directly related to the question. For example, the questions following the RC passage in CMAT exam are directly related to the text information and can be easily answered as against the CAT and XAT where you find the questions indirectly related to the text and you need to infer the answer out of the information in the passage.

3. CMAT ASSURES ADMISSION IN AICTE APPROVED MBA/PGDM: All the AICTE - Govt of India approved management institutes are included in the list of CMAT score accepting colleges. The list of B-schools and Universities offering admission on the basis of CMAT, on the NTA/AICTE website includes only those institutes which offer UGC/AICTE approved MBA/PGDM programmes. After qualifying CMAT exam, the students can be assured to get admission in an institute which is recognized by the Government and is authorized to conduct management programme. 

The recognized Government and Private Universities, highly ranked B schools in thirteen states are likely to accept CMAT scores as the gateway to MBA admissions under the government quota, instead of the State-administered Post graduate Common Entrance Test (PGCET). The states which will accept CMAT 2019 test scores are: Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Nagaland, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Jharkhand and Himachal Pradesh. It is expected that with the creation of National testing Agency (NTA) number of more approved B-schools will be accepting CMAT scores.

4. LOW FEE COLLEGES: Unlike the IIMs who have a high fee structure between Rs.16 lakhs and Rs.22 lakhs, the MBA/PGDM colleges under CMAT offer similar management programmes at a moderate Fee between Rs. 5 Lakhs to Rs.15 Lakhs. All these management institutes offer similar 2 years full time residential MBA/PGDM programmes. In some of the university affiliated MBA colleges under CMAT like Mumbai University and others, the fee structure is as low as Rs.2 to 3 lakhs.

5. NATIONAL MBA EXAM ACCEPTED BY TOP B-SCHOOLS: CMAT is a higher level national MBA entrance test as compared to MAT and ATMA. CMAT offers admission opportunity in higher level MBA/PGDM colleges. There are many MBA colleges in India who do not accept MAT and ATMA scores, but accept CMAT scores. For example, DTE-Maharashtra had clarified that all the 400 MBA colleges in Maharashtra affiliated to Government of Maharashtra would accept  CMAT scores for admission instead of earlier MAT and other exams.
