A pass in graduation or in final year of bachelor's degree is the minimum eligibility criteria to appear in May MAT 2020.  MAT 2020 May exam has been postponed to the month of June 2020 due to corona virus outbreak and country wide lock down. Now,  the new dates for MAT 2020 exam are June 14 for paper based test and June 21 for computer based test.  Earlier MAT exam dates were May 16, 2020 for Paper based MAT, and May 3, 2020 for Computer based MAT exam. 

 

To appear for MAT exam 2020 in June, you must have obtained recognized bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years duration or equivalent in any discipline. Those studying in their final graduation year may also apply. Besides, there is no age restriction to appear in MAT exam nor does AIMA restrict any candidate to seek MBA admission on the basis of age bar.  

 

As against other national level MBA entrance exams, AIMA has not fixed any minimum percentage of marks in graduation as the eligibility criteria to appear in MAT exam. AIMA has not changed the MAT exam eligibility criteria for the upcoming MAT exam to be held in May 2020 and as such the MAT 2020 exam eligibility for May MAT exam remains unchanged. However, you have to check the eligibility for the respective MBA colleges accepting MAT.  

 

Management Aptitude Test (MAT) is one of the most popular National level MBA entrance exams in India. More than 400 MBA colleges offer MBA admission on the basis of MAT exam score. AIMA, the MAT exam conducting body releases the MAT 2020 exam schedule for each MAT exam.
